Automation of Dashboard Refresh in OBIEE 11G

If we want the dashboard to be refreshed for every 'n' minutes then below HTML will be helpful, where you have to give (n x 60) seconds.
Insert the below html in the dashboard text layout and check the HTML markup checkbox.


Don't forget to enable the "Contains HTML Markup"

So in this way the page which is being displayed in the browser can be refreshed automatically without manual intervention.

RPD Merging in OBIEE 11G

Merging two RPDs:-

Consider the two RPD that are to be merged as
RPD1-Consisting of all the previous version Modelling (Existing deployed in Prod)
RPD2-Consisting of modified modules that are to be merged to the RPD1
RPD3- Consider a dummy RPD which is blank as.

Now below are the steps to merge the RPDs via Blank RPD method.
àOpen RPD1 and go to file menu > merge
àIn the merging options Select Master RPD as Blank Rpd i.e RPD3
àModified RPD as the RPD2 which has the changes that are to be merged.
àCurrent RPD will be the RPD1.

Click next and in the conflicts select Current for those whose descriptions is as ‘Add to current’ and select modified for the those whose description is as  ‘Delete from current’.
Thus the merged RPD will be saved at the location mentioned in the previous step.

è Open the blank RPD first.
è In merge options give the master repository as Production RPD and modified repository as Dev RPD.
And follow the above steps of process 1.

How to check the disk Space in linux for OBIEE 11g:-

Down grading the RPD OBIEE 11g

Down grading the RPD:-

In BI command Prompt(OBIEE Client) use the following command

nqgenoldverrpd -P Admin123 -I C:\RPD_old\FAPRD20140314_BI0002_May09.rpd -O C:\RPD_NEW
\FAPRD20140314_BI0002_May09_latest.rpd -V 325

The above example is used to degrade the version of the RPD and remember we can't upgrade the RPD as there is no functionality that was provided with the OBIEE Client.
