Object-Specific Tasks

The tasks that you can perform for an object that you select from the "Catalog pane" are determined by both the selected object's type (for example, a dashboard or KPI) and the permissions that were set for the object. The list of available tasks is displayed in the "Tasks pane," which is located within the "Catalog page" or from the object's More link.

Figure 13-3 shows the available tasks for the analysis that was selected from the catalog. This graphic illustrates that the object's available tasks are: Open, Edit, Print, Export, Add to Briefing Book, Schedule, Delete, Copy, Rename, Add to Favorites, Create Shortcut, Archive, Properties, and Permissions.

In most cases, you can open or copy an object. However, if you selected an analysis, then you can create an agent for the analysis or export the analysis. If you selected a dashboard, then you can publish the dashboard or archive it, depending upon the permissions that were assigned to the object.


If you upgrade to a newer version of Oracle Business Intelligence and work with objects in the catalog, then you might notice that certain objects are not being accessed as quickly as in the previous release. This change can occur if objects were not upgraded properly. See "Updating Catalog Objects" in System Administrator's Guide for Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition for information on upgrading objects.
