Accessing Performance Management Architect

  To access Performance Management Architect:

  1. Ensure that Shared Services and EPM Workspace Server are running.

  2. Ensure that IIS is running.

  3. To start the Hyperion EPMA Server, from the Services panel, click start Hyperion EPMA Server.

    Note:

    If you have difficulty starting the Dimension server, you might need to change the timeout setting. See Starting and Stopping Performance Management Architect Dimension Server.

  4. Start the EPM Architect application server by doing one of the following:

    • From the Services panel, start Hyperion EPM Architect – Web Application.

    • Select Start, then Programs, then Oracle EPM System, then Foundation Services, then Performance Management Architect, and then Start Performance Management Architect Web.

  5. Open your Web browser and access Performance Management Architect through EPM Workspace (http://<Web Server>:<port>/workspace/) where <Web Server> is the Web server machine host name and <port> is the Web server port number; for example, 19000 if using the Oracle HTTP server instance configured by Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management System Configurator.

  6. Enter your user name and password, and click Log On.

    Note:

    If an error message indicates that Performance Management Architect is unable to authenticate the user, verify that the user is provisioned for the application (if not, use Shared Services to provision the user), and that the user's token or session has not timed out (in this case, log off, then log back on to start a new session). If a problem exists with the Financial Management Web Server or Application Server, contact your system administrator.

    If you have difficulty accessing Performance Management Architect, see the Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management System Installation and Configuration Troubleshooting Guide.

  7. To access the Dimension Library, select Navigate, then Administer, and then Dimension Library.
