Logging On to EPM Workspace and Accessing Planning

You work with Planning in the EPM Workspace environment. The default EPM Workspace URL is http://web server:port/workspace/, where web server is the Web server machine hostname and port is the Web server port number, for example, 19000, if using the Oracle HTTP server instance configured by EPM System Configurator. Communicate the URL to all Planning users to enable them to log on to EPM Workspace and access Planning.

For information on installing and configuring EPM Workspace, see the Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management System Installation and Configuration Guide.

  To log on to EPM Workspace and access Planning:

  1. Ensure that the Web server is started and the Web application server is running in the Services panel.

  2. In your browser, enter the URL for the EPM Workspace Log On page.

  3. Enter your user name.

  4. Enter your password.

  5. Click Log On.

  6. In EPM Workspace, select Navigate, then Applications, and then Planning. Select a Planning application. If prompted, enter your logon information. Planning does not support non-ASCII characters for passwords.

    You can log on to several Planning applications simultaneously, and navigate among them in the EPM Workspace tabs. The application names display as tabs at the top of the window, and you can click the tabs to move between applications. You can also have two views of the same application in the EPM Workspace tabs. If you want to open two or more instances of the browser to log on to EPM Workspace, you must append the EPM Workspace URL as described in the Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Workspace User's Guide.

For information on Performance Management Architect application administration tasks, see the Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management Architect Administrator’s Guide.

Planning supports users on a variety of network bandwidths. The performance on a 56K dialup connection can be enhanced by using HTTP compression on the Planning server.
