Changing default URL or setting up redirect for analytics

Hi,

I'm trying to find a way to configure OBIEE to allow me to log in to analytics without needing the /analytics/saw.dll as part of my URL. Ideally I would like to have analytics accessible at www.mydomain.com instead of www.mydomain.com/analytics.

One suggestion that I've seen is to set up a redirect from the root of mydomain.com to mydomain.com/analytics/saw.dll?obieehome but I can't seem to figure out where the web root is with Weblogic.

Any thoughts on how I could accomplish this?

Thanks,
Chris

    Hello,

    Did you refer to : http://blog.obi-business-intelligence.com/2009/10/how-to-change-obiee-url-address.html

    I do not know how that index and move.html works in here :(

    http://obiee-oracledb.blogspot.com/2011/03/changing-default-url-of-obiee.html

    To change the context root in WLS refer to :

    http://blog.leahu.net/it/2011/01/04/defining-the-context-root-of-a-web-application-in-oracle-weblogic-server/

    If you are using WebLogic and connecting directly to the bi_server1 server (port 9704), you will need to deploy some J2EE application to the Context Root of , however changing the root context from /analytics to /xyz/Analytics is not something that is documented in OBIEE 11g, and therefore it is NOT supported by Oracle. Of course not :)

    You should be looking into Virtual IP like the one mentioned in this note : Disaster Recovery for OBIEE 11g / Cold Failover [ID 1368775.1]

    Or if you are already using different webserver like OHS , you can change as per this note : How To Configure WebTier / Oracle HTTP Server (OHS) With OBIEE 11g [ID 1327444.1]

    Hope this helps. Mark if it does.

    Thanks,
    SVS
