Managing Global Integration Tokens

The Global Integration Tokens feature enables creation of parameterized URLs. The URLs can be used for a variety of purposes, including launching OBIEE reports which require provision of parameters in order to display filtered report content.

When creating the URL, the parameters are inserted into the URL. When the URL is clicked, the parameters are replaced with the appropriate values.

For example, the following is an excerpt of the parameters:

…$YearName$%22%22Period%20Name%22&val6=%22$PeriodName$%22&col17=%22Logical%20Schedules%22.%22Year%20Name%22&val7=%22$Y earName$%22&col8=%22Logical%20Schedules%22.%22Deployment%20Name%22&val8=%22$ ScheduleName $%22

where

$YearName$ = 2012
$PeriodName$ = Jan12
$ScheduleName$ = DemoSchedule

The URL becomes:

…%222012%22%22Period%20Name%22&val6=%22Jan2012%22&col7=%22Logical%20Schedules%22.%22Year%20Name%22&val7=%222012%22&col8=%22Logical%20Schedules%22.%22Schedule%20Name%22&val8=%22DemoSchedule%22

Parameters can be configured from static parameters defined in your application, custom attributes of type Text and List, and the following native attributes assigned to Tasks, Templates, and Schedules:

  • Period Name

  • Schedule Name

  • Task Name

  • Task ID

  • Year Name

You can access URLs from the following locations:

  • Templates: After an administrator or power user adds a reference URL to a template in the Instructions section, the URL is clickable on the Instruction tab.

  • Schedule: After an administrator or power user adds a reference URL to a schedule in the Instructions section, the URL is clickable in Instruction.

  • Task Details: After an administrator or power user or task owner adds a reference URL to a task in the Instructions section, the URL is clickable in Instruction.

  • Task Types: After an administrator adds a reference URL to a Task Type in the Instructions section, the URL is clickable on the Instruction tab.

  • Task Actions: Viewers of Task Actions can click the reference URLs.
