Oracle Business Intelligence is an integrated solution that addresses business intelligence requirements, such as enterprise performance management, data integration, financial performance management, data warehousing analysis, and reporting.

Oracle Business Intelligence includes Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer, Oracle Business Intelligence Reporting and Publishing, and Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher.

This article by Dhananjay Papde, Vipul Patel and Tushar Nath, authors of Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Administration Cookbook describes the steps to configure OEM 12c to manually discover the Oracle BI EE targets.

(For more resources related to this topic, see here.)

Getting ready

Oracle Business Intelligence Version 11.1.1.6 is installed on a host other than the OMS host. The agent needs to be up and running on the host where Oracle Business Intelligence is installed.

How to do it...

To discover the OBIEE 11g target, perform the following steps:

  1. Log in to Enterprise Manager Cloud Control.

  2. From the Targets tab, select the Middleware option from the drop-down menu.

  3. Click on the + Add button on the Middleware home page.

  4. Select the Oracle Fusion Middleware/Weblogic Domain option from the drop-down list.

  5. Populate the Oracle Business Intelligence Weblogic Domain details on the Add Fusion Middleware Farm: Find Targets screen.

    • Select Administration Server Host of the Oracle Business Intelligence host.

    • Specify the Oracle Business Intelligence domain admin server port, and add a username, a password.

    • Also provide a meaningful Unique Domain Identifier. The default name is left unchanged in this example.

  6. Click on Continue.

  7. Click on Close.

  8. Click on Add Targets to add the discovered components of the Oracle Business Intelligence domain.

  9. Click on Close.

  10. Verify the Add Fusion Middleware Farm: Results screen.

  11. Expand the Show Targets Details tab to view all the components of Oracle Business Intelligence.

  12. Click on OK.

  13. Click on the Farm01_bifoundation_domain link to monitor and manage all the Oracle Business Intelligence components.

How it works...

This recipe describes the steps to discover the Oracle Fusion Middleware/WebLogic Domain target. The Fusion Middleware plugin Version 12.1.0.3 is embedded with Cloud Control 12.1.0.2 and is certified to discover components of the Oracle Business Intelligence target, which can be managed and monitored using EM Cloud Control.

There's more...

Multiple Oracle Business Intelligence instances can be managed and monitored more efficiently using EM Cloud Control 12c. Enterprise Manager displays the performance of the managed targets data in a user-friendly graphical format.

Summary

This article deals with the steps required to discover the Oracle Fusion Middleware/WebLogic Domain target.
