Adding Tabs to a Tabular Page

Tabs can be horizontal or vertical. For example, the Valid Intersections card (under the Application cluster) is a tabular page with two horizontal tabs: Setup and Reports.

Note:

If your environment uses the default Redwood Experience theme, the Setup and Reports tabs are at the bottom of the page.

You can also create tabular pages with vertical tabs. Vertical tabs display a graphic and text appears when the cursor is hovered over the tab. Horizontal tabs display labels with text only or text with icons.

To ensure an optimal user experience, review the navigation flow design best practices. See Navigation Flow Design Best Practices and Naming Considerations.

To add tabs to a tabular page:

  1. Open the Navigation Flow page and click the name of the navigation flow you want to edit. See Viewing and Working with Navigation Flows.
  2. Edit an existing card by clicking the name of the card you want to edit, or add a new card by right-clicking a card (or clicking Navigation Flow Actions Icon), and then clicking Add Card.
  3. On the Manage Card page, select the following options:
    • For Page Type, select Tabular Page.

    • For Orientation, select Vertical or Horizontal.

    A tab listing displays at the bottom of the Manage Card page.

  4. To edit an existing tab, click a tab name from the tab listing, and edit tab details.
  5. To add a new or existing tab:
    1. To add an existing tab, right-click a tab in the listing at the bottom of the Manage Card page, click Add Existing Tab (or click the Add Existing Tab button), select a tab from the Object Library, and then click OK.

      Note:

      A reference tab is a tab that is already referenced from another navigation flow. References to already referenced tabs are not supported in navigation flows and will not be available for selection in the Object Library when adding an existing tab; for example:

      • A tab referring to a remote artifact or remote sub-tab will not be available from the Object Library when adding an existing tab.

      • A tab referring to a sub tab from another navigation flow will not be available from the Object Library when adding an existing tab.

    2. To add a new tab, right-click a tab, click Add New Tab (or click the Add New Tab button), and then edit tab details.
    3. Select the content for the new tab:
      • For Artifact, click Choose Artifact icon to select an artifact in the Artifact Library; for example, if the artifact is a form, then select the specific form from the artifact listing. Available artifacts include forms, dashboards, and reports. To select an artifact from another environment, select the target environment under My Connections, and then choose the artifact you want to add.

      • For URL, enter a complete URL; for example, a URL to embed an Oracle Analytics Cloud dashboard in a tab, then click Preview to validate the URL in a popup window.

        Insert only external site URLs starting with the https:// security protocol. Don't use internal or relative URLs or URLs for unconsenting third-party sites. See About Using URLs to Embed Third-Party Pages in EPM Cloud Applications.

      A tab is added to the list as a sibling under the tab that is currently selected.

      Note:

      Tabs that are added without first selecting a tab are added to the end of the list.

  6. To add new or existing sub tabs to a tab:
    1. Click the name of a tab in the in the tab listing.
    2. For Page Type, select Tabular Page.
    3. Right-click a tab, and click Add New Sub Tab or Add Existing Sub Tab (or click the Add New Sub Tab or Add Existing Sub Tab button), and then edit sub tab details.
    4. Select the content for the new sub tab:
      • For Artifact, click Choose Artifact icon to select an artifact in the Artifact Library; for example, if the artifact is a form, then select the specific form from the artifact listing. Available artifacts include forms, dashboards, and reports. To select an artifact from another environment, select the target environment under My Connections, and then choose the artifact you want to add.

      • For URL, enter a complete URL; for example, a URL to embed an Oracle Analytics Cloud dashboard in a sub tab. Click Preview to validate the URL in a popup window.

        Insert only external site URLs starting with the https:// security protocol. Don't use internal or relative URLs or URLs for unconsenting third-party sites. See About Using URLs to Embed Third-Party Pages in EPM Cloud Applications.

      A sub tab is added to the list as a sibling under the tab that is currently selected.

      Note:

      Sub tabs that are added without first selecting a tab are added to the end of the list.

  7. Click Save and Close.

To reload a navigation flow to view design time changes, see Reloading a Navigation Flow.

Note:

  • For cards with multiple tabs or sub tabs, the last tab accessed by a user will be retained the next time the user accesses the card in the same session. If the user logs out and then logs back in, the default tab will be displayed.

  • Tabs or sub tabs that are added from another navigation flow or from another environment will display the localized labels that were defined in the source navigation flow. To update the tab labels in your navigation flow, on the Home page, click Tools, and then click Artifact Labels. See "Specifying Artifact Labels" in your EPM Cloud Administering guide.
