Downloading Help for Local or Web Server Installation

After installing Smart View, the online help is retrieved from a URL hosted on the Oracle.com web site. This is the default behavior for Smart View, and no changes are required by users to launch help.

However, you may require that the help be installed locally or on a web server in your organization. Some examples for the need to access help from a location other than Oracle.com are:

  • Help files must be installed on a local drive on an individual's computer for Section 508 accessibility purposes.

  • Internet access limitations; for example, your users only have access to URLs on your organization's intranet.

To accommodate the above types of cases, a downloadable help zip file is posted on My Oracle Support as a patch to the current Smart View release.

The procedure below describes downloading the help zip file. Further instructions for installation and configuration are in the following guides:
