When launched, a business rule can prompt you to enter variable information, called a runtime prompt. The business rule designer sets up runtime prompts. To learn how the display and values of runtime prompts are affected by certain settings and conditions, see “Understanding Runtime Prompts” in Oracle Hyperion Planning Administrator's Guide.
Members and substitution variables on the Member Selection page are filtered by your access permissions and limitations set for the runtime prompt (for example, only Descendants of Q1). You cannot select a shared member in a runtime prompt.
If multiple business rules having runtime prompts are launched when saving the form, enter values for each one successively, using the Next button.
Expected Input Type
One member selection
Multiple member selections
Text value—Use only with enhanced calculation scripts, not with graphical scripts.
Dimension from the database—Use only with enhanced calculation scripts, not with graphical scripts.
|Cross Dimension—A member combination that includes only one member from each dimension the designer has set for this runtime prompt (for example: Sales -> Actual -> Jan refers to the member intersection of Sales, Actual, and January).|
|Member range—A range of members, selectable from each dimension the designer has set for this runtime prompt (for example: IDescendants(“Marketing”),FY11).|
Symbols indicate whether the values in runtime prompts are valid:
—The runtime prompt values are not valid (for example, the entry does not exist in the dimension hierarchy). You cannot launch a business rule until all runtime prompt values are valid.
Note: If an administrator enabled the member parent for dynamic children (as described in “About Dynamic Members” in the Oracle Hyperion Planning Administrator's Guide), you can create a member by entering its name now in the runtime prompt.
The file is saved as rule_name.XML, in the EPM_ORACLE_INSTANCE/planning/Planning1/RTP/user_name folder. Administrators specify this generated file when launching business rules with the CalcMgrCmdLineLauncher.cmd utility (see the Oracle Hyperion Planning Administrator's Guide).
If the calculation is successful, the values in the database reflect the calculation results. See also Checking Job Status.
If you are using an Oracle Essbase substitution variable as the runtime prompt value and the value of that substitution variable is outside of the variable limits, the limits are ignored, and the rule launches successfully.
