By on June 20, 2014




Action links will help us to provide guided navigation link to external web agent and revoke web service

Web service: A web service is a method of communication between two electronic devices over the web.

Enabling BI Navigation:

· Add on inline Action link to a column in an analysis which navigates to another analysis in Oracle BI.

· After testing the inline action link and saving the analysis you save the action link as named Action link in the presentation catalog.

Add an Action link to analysis:

· Notice you also have an option to replace the current action in the action link with a reference to named action, so that any sub sequent changes to named.



Hands On:

· Create the following analysis:

· Company, Brand, Revenue and save this as " Revenue by Company"

· With the help of Action links, We can navigate to other BI component (Analytics or Dashboard page)

· Open Revenue by company report and go to Criteria tab.

· From company column click on column properties.

· Select interaction tab and select "Action Links" as value from value section. Click on add action link(+).

· you can either create new action or select existing action.

· Click on create new action.

· click on select Navigate to BI component.

· Select on any report you saved earlier.

· Click on OK and Click on Ok (We can save that Action link Click on More >>).

· If you want you can add one more action link, you can also specify the option to display "Always" or "Conditionally".

· Clickon results and save the analysis.

· Click on any value for company column, you should be able to see pop up of links.

· Select any one of action link and you should be able to navigate to any one of the content.
