Installation and Configuration

The new Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management System Installer, Fusion Edition and Oracle's Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management System Configurator provide a streamlined and simplified approach to product installation, upgrade, and configuration. Oracle's Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management System Configurator uses the new Oracle's Hyperion Shared Services Registry, which simplifies product configuration by storing and re-using configuration information.

Oracle's Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management System Diagnostics confirms that product components were successfully installed, configured, and are up and running.

The reorganized installation and configuration documentation set reduces the number of installation guides and makes it easier to find the information you need. Individual product installation guides are replaced by the following guides:

  • Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management System Installation Start Here

  • Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management System Installation and Configuration Guide

  • Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management System Security Administration Guide

You might also need to use one or more of the following guides:

  • Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management System Manual Deployment Guide

Support for Additional Result Types

In this release of Oracle Hyperion Smart Search, Fusion Edition, support was added for the following types of data in search results:

  • Report scripts: Clicking the report script link executes the report script and displays results in the browser window.

  • Calculation scripts: Clicking the calculation script link opens the script in the browser window.

  • Linked Reporting Objects (LROs): Clicking the link opens the linked object in the browser window.

  • Graphs: Clicking the graph link displays the results in graph format.

Conditional Search Support

Search terms now include conditional operators, such as “Sales > 300 and Sales < 1200.” These can be written in sentence for; for example, "Sales is at least 300 and less than 1200."

A new interface was added to assist creating conditional search criteria.

Background Crawler Operation

An option was added to allow the metadata crawler to operate as a background process, freeing system resources for other operations.

Support for Oracle SES 10.1.8.2

Smart Search can be specified as a provider in Oracle Secure Enterprise Search (SES) Release 10.1.8.2.

Support for Unicode Applications

Oracle Hyperion Smart Search, Fusion Edition searches and returns results from Unicode applications.

Search Statistics

Search statistics are displayed at the beginning of a results set. For example, “1 Outline, 19 report scripts matched your query.”

Pagination of Search Results

Search results are displayed on multiple pages if needed. The number of results per page is configurable, and if multiple pages are returned, each page shows the total number of result pages, with links to other pages.
