Before you can use Analytics Link, you must enable the Analytics Link Administration Services Console plug-in in Administration Services Console.

Note:

Analytics Link does not support activating the Analytics Link Administration Services Console plug-in when accessing Administration Services Console using the Web launcher URL: http://server_name:10080/easconsole/console.html.

To activate Analytics Link Administration Services Console plug-in, access Administration Services Console from the Windows Start menu: Select Programs, then Oracle EPM System, then Essbase, then Administration Services, and then Start Administration Services Console.

  To enable Analytics Link Administration Services Console Plug-in in Enterprise View:

  1. Ensure that these EPM System products are running:

    1. Shared Services Server

    2. Essbase Server

    3. Provider Services Server

      Note:
