    What kind of user preferences do you mean? Can you be a bit more specific?

    Lets say only only for one user we have show data from particular period(lets say last 30 days) and for other user its diferent period of time(lets say since last 10 days).

    When you have a dashboard prompt with a date prompt attached to your dashboard, it is possible for the users to save the selection as their standard selection.

    when ever a user login. As i am defaulting other user to last 10 days. i want to default this user to last 30 days.. Is there a way that i can do that. or ask user to select date directly...

    The easiest way is to add a date prompt to your dashboard off course.
    But if you want to have strict filters, like the last 10 days or the last 30 days, you should start with creating repository variables, which calculates these days.
    Then, if you want to have a dashboard prompt with two options: last 10 days, or last 30 days, you need to do some more hand work. I think you then need to create something like described in this article: http://obiee101.blogspot.com/2009/04/obiee-dynamic-prompt-content.html.
    But for some reason I think you're new to OBIEE and then this might be a bit to complex.

  • Hi,

    If your looking to control the data depending on the type of user, then the best approach is to create a session initialization block and create the sessions variable assign the value to that variable depending on the user and use this session variable to restrict the data at business layer level
