Displaying Static Tabs With Dynamic Dashboards
Multiple dashboards can be displayed in a single portal
session and each dashboard can contain gadgets that are personalized
for the owner (user). You can also create fixed dashboards that
the owner cannot personalize.
Procedure: How to Create a Static Tab With a Dynamic Dashboard
Run a query against the GADGET_PAGES table and locate the number
stored as the GADGET_PAGE_ID for the dynamic dashboard you want
If you are a developer, you can use the WebFOCUS Server
Console to run a query against your PMF data mart.
Log on to the MRE applet.
Navigate to the Performance Management Framework domain in
the MRE applet and create a new Standard Report.
Save the Standard Report with an appropriate name, for example, Operational
Dashboard static launcher, then close the report.
Open the report with the Editor and add the following lines
-MRNOEDIT -SET &PAGE_ID=nn;
-MRNOEDIT -INCLUDE GADGET_PAGE_SHELL
Is the specific GADGET_PAGE_ID of the dashboard you want
Save and close the Standard Report.
You cannot test the functionality of the report until it
is launched from inside the PMF environment.
Log off MRE.
Log on to the Business Intelligence Dashboard View Builder.
Create and assign a name to a new page for the group view that
will become the new static tab.
Create a new launch block and reference the new Standard Report (Operational
Dashboard static launcher) you created in the Performance Management Framework
Save the new page and the group view.
Log off from the Business Intelligence Dashboard View Builder.
Log on to PMF as a user for the group view.
Users can save their preferences for the new dashboard,
but they cannot switch preferences to point to a different dashboard.
not replace the PMF Today page with the new static tab page in the
group view. This would cause serious errors and make the PMF application inoperable.
The Today page must run additional application logic, point to the
Today Page bounce report, and be the first page that users view.
