Viewing Content on Mobile Devices

It’s easy to access Oracle BI Cloud Service content through a mobile device. You can explore Data Visualization projects directly on your mobile phone or tablet. If you want to view analyses, dashboards, or your entire Oracle BI Cloud Service environment, you’ll need the Oracle Business Intelligence Mobile app.

Viewing Data Visualization Projects on Mobile Phones and Tablets

To view Data Visualization projects on your mobile phone or tablet, enter in a browser either the IP address (for example: 192.168.1.1) or the fully qualified host name of the computer on which Oracle BI Cloud Service is running (for example, host1.analytics.us2.oraclecloud.com). Do not enter a stand-in URL, such as tinyurl.com/1234 that redirects to a server. Enter your user name and password when prompted. The mobile content is responsive and adaptive.
