Enabling Offerings for Deployment

Use Configuration Manager to enable the Oracle BI Applications offerings that you have purchased and are deploying. The setup data relating to offerings is made visible in Configuration Manager when you enable the offering.

By default, if you have multiple source instances and you enable an offering, the offering is enabled for all source instances. If an offering won't source from all source instances, then you can disable the source instances from which the offering won't source. For example, suppose you have two source instances, Oracle EBS and PeopleSoft, and you are deploying Financial Analytics. If Financial Analytics will only source from PeopleSoft, then you would disable the Oracle EBS source instance for the Financial Analytics offering.

To enable Oracle BI Applications offerings for deployment:

  1. Log in to Configuration Manager as the Oracle BI Applications Administrator user.
  2. Select the Manage Business Intelligence Applications link to display the Manage Business Intelligence Applications dialog.
  3. Select the Business Intelligence Application Offerings tab.
  4. Select Enabled next to each offering you want to deploy.

    Enabling an offering makes the setup data associated with that offering available in Configuration Manager.

  5. Click Save to save your changes.
  6. To exit this dialog, click Done.

Disabling a Source Instance

You can disable a source instance from which an offering will not source.

  1. Go to the Business Intelligence Application Offerings and Associated Sources tab.
  2. Expand the appropriate offering.
  3. Deselect Enabled for the source you want to disable.
  4. Click Save.
