How to Create a New Oracle Communications Data Model Dashboard

This tutorial explains how to create a dashboard based on the Oracle Communications Data Model webcat included with the sample Oracle Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition reports delivered with Oracle Communications Data Model.

See

Oracle Communications Data Model Installation Guide for more information on installing the sample reports and deploying the Oracle Communications Data Model RPD and webcat on the Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition instance.

In this example assume that you want to create a dashboard named "Dropped call and Failed Call", and put both "Dropped Call Rate Report" and "Failed Call Rate Report" into this new dashboard.

To create a dashboard, take the following steps:

  1. In the browser, open the login page at http://servername:9704/analytics where servername is the server on which the webcat is installed.

  2. Login with username of ocdm, and provide the password.

    Then, click newDashboard to create an Oracle Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition dashboard.

  3. Input name and description, save it to the Network Health folder. Click OK.

  4. In the Catalog view, expand the Network Health Analysis folder. You can see the Failed Call Rate Report and Dropped Call Rate Report.

  5. Drag the Failed Call Rate Report and Dropped Call Rate Report from the Catalog view into the right panel.

  6. You can change the layout of this section to organize the two reports by horizontal or vertical.

    Note that the page name is still "Page1" so you must change it.

  7. To change the page name:

    1. Select the Dashboard.

    2. In Dashboard Properties window, click Change Name.

    3. Change the name to "Dropped Call Rate and Failed Call Rate", then click OK.

  8. Click Save on the top of the dashboard. Now you have a new dashboard.
