Signing In to Oracle BI Enterprise Edition

To access Oracle BI EE, you use a URL, a user ID, and a password that have been provided by your organization.


Oracle BI EE requires that the web browser be set to accept cookies. It uses a cookie to track a user's signed-in session.

You might not be prompted to enter values in all fields of the Sign In page (as described in the following procedure), if you have already signed on using single sign-on (SSO).

To sign in to Oracle BI Enterprise Edition:

  1. In the address field of a browser, enter the URL that was provided by your organization.

    The "Sign In page" is displayed. Figure 1-2 shows the Sign In page.

    Figure 1-2 Sign In Page for Oracle BI EE

    This image is described in the surrounding text.
  2. Select the language in which you want to work.

    You can change the default entry for this box by selecting another language in the User Interface Language field in the "My Account dialog: Preferences tab." For more information, see "Setting Preferences."


    On Windows, if you select the Install files for complex script and right-to-left languages (including Thai) option on the Languages tab of the Regional and Language Options dialog, Hebrew fonts display in the wrong direction, that is left to right rather than right to left.

    The workaround is to deselect the Install files for complex script and right-to-left languages (including Thai) option as follows:

    1. In the Control Panel, click the Regional & Language Options button to display the Regional and Language Options dialog.

    2. Click the Languages tab.

    3. Deselect the Install files for complex script and right-to-left languages (including Thai) option.

    4. Click OK.

  3. Enter your user ID and password.

  4. Select the Accessibility Mode box if you want content for Oracle BI EE to be rendered in a browser in a way that facilitates the use of a screen reader.

    If you select this box, then the "BI Composer wizard" in accessibility mode is used as the analysis editor (rather than the "Analysis editor"). For more information on BI Composer, see "Using BI Composer to Work with Analyses." For more information on the Analysis editor, see "What Is the Analysis Editor?"

    For more information on accessibility, see Appendix C, "Accessibility Features."

  5. Click Sign In. One of the following pages (depending on what has been configured for you) is displayed:

    A dashboard (whether My Dashboard or one specific to your job function) typically contains analyses and other information for your area of responsibility. Figure 1-1 shows an example of a dashboard.

    You can now navigate Oracle BI EE. For information, see "Navigating Oracle BI Enterprise Edition."


    Once you have signed in, you can select the dashboard to be displayed when you sign in thereafter. For information, see "Setting Preferences."
