Hyperion Web analysis - graphical waterfall


I need to create a waterfall chart in the report of WA of Hyperion.
The waterfall graph must be created for different countries. Each country has 5-7 under him business units.
Only the Budget values for each business unit needs to be included in the table and the sum of all the business units is the value for the country.
I'd appreciate any help.

Although there is no option to select a chart of cascade type, you can manually create a base with a bit of trickery:

For example in showing the costs and benefits:
Use accounts as the axis of X, and then on the Y: income - expenses, income, expenses

Then create a stacked bar chart, using colours as: Rev = green, Exp = red, Rev - Exp = white * it is so to hide it on the chart, you must make sure you have a white background of the graph.

Hope this help you get started ;-)

Cheers, Iain

  • Hyperion Web analysis


    I'm looking for answers for two queries:

    (a) how to retrieve data and display the same of essbase in analysis web hyperion
    (b) how to calculate sql worksheet data and view the same web analytics hyperion

    Hi Sandeep,

    Here are answers to your questions.

    (a) create a web analytics database connection and using a data source for the database connection, you can retrieve data from essbase. You can represent data in charts or spreadsheets, or Favorites.

    (b) you can even create a database for your RDBMS connection. You must have the JDBC drivers on your machine for the same thing. The best report of RDBMS tool is interactive reports (IR).

    Hope this helps,

  • Problem with Web analysis


    With the help of some of the experts in this forum, I finished to install and configure the following 3 products Hyperion 9.3.1 (in that order) on our development of Windows 2003 server.

    V11229 - 01.zip (Hyperion, Services shared)
    V11207 - 01.zip (Hyperion Reporting and Analysis - Services Release)
    V11223 - 01.zip (Hyperion Reporting and analysis - UI Services Release)

    The backend is an Oracle database 10g.

    I can successfully connect to

    (1) the Services shared @ http://localhost:58080 / interop as an admin / < by default the password >
    (2) web analytics @ http://localhost:16000/WebAnalysis/WebAnalysis.jsp with the same username/password name (that I used to connect to Shared Services)
    (3) workspace @ http://localhost:45000/workspace/index.jsp with the same username/password name (that I used to connect to Shared Services)

    It tells me that I probably have these properly configured componently.

    However, it seems that I can't do something basic in analysis Studio Web. For example, if I try to do
    File-> new-> Document Wizard, most of the menu under 'File' options is grayed out.

    To be precise, the following options under 'File' are grayed out.

    New, open, modify, close, close all, save, save as, save as HTML, properties, import, export, Email as link, print

    so, I could not even do file-> new.

    In fact, the button "Edit", "View" and "Display" menu in the menu bar items are gray as well.

    As you can see, I can not do much in Web analysis workshop (I am logged on as admin user, which is the only user now).

    Is it a permission problem? or I can't seem to install some components required?
    In addition, in this forum, how can I post a screenshot (saved as an image)?

    Thanks in advance for your help.



    pls. try to give the user admin rights (provision "Report Designer" or "BIPlus administrator"-I don't know exactly what roles are available regarding more than BI suite).

    Are you sure there's not another web analytics web application processes running, have you checked the processes running on the machine, you will need to kill or stop one of them to release the lock.

  • Problem accessing the Web Analysis Document


    I created a document for web analytics users can open the workspace. I am trying to assing correct users supply so that they can open the document, but I am not able to do. Users already have access to the folder where the document (they are able to open other files that are in the same folder). Statement of Directors are able to open the document. How to configure all other users of the database (not adinistrators)?

    Basic users have the following reports, assigned shared services roles: Analyst, Viewer to dynamic, Explorer, runner work, personal page editor, editor of personal settings, Viewer.

    Administrative users have the following roles for reporting: reporting and analysis administrator.

    Basic users are not supposed to be able to delete and move documents.

  • How to organize the drop-down menus page in Web analysis report

    Hello Experts!

    I created a Web based on my Esssbase cube analysis document. This document contains a grid with 7 drop-down menus. All dropdowns are in a line from the top and they are narrowed so that all they are part of line 1 in the screen and I can't see the full names of the members in a drop-down list. So I need some advice on how I can arrange drop-downs in my Web analysis report so that I can see the full names of members at the opening of the drop-down list? Thank you very much!

  • Disable Save and save as in Web analysis

    I have a few standard Web analysis reports that I want to share between users. I created a common folder in the workspace and saved reports (each is just a simple grid) in the folder.

    If my users are provided as spectators, they can drill up and down on the grid but not navigate the dimensions (no swivel).

    But and this is the question, how can I stop Web Analytics to prompt the user to save the report, if they broke down? If the user click on save file is not registered. Same applies to save as - the user can type anything he likes - no matter the location (folder or origin) or name (same value or another), the file is not saved.

    Thank you

    Oops, I forgot to add that it is 9.3.1 Web Analytics

    You can get the user to change their preferences of the workspace to untick the box:
    Bq. guest files record not saved
    (The Preferences/general tab)

    But you don't really want to get each user manually change this, we have a SR raised with Oracle on this issue. I'll try and get the update and let you know.

  • Interactive Reporting vs. Web analysis


    I worked at the customer's location for financial reporting using Hyperion Financial Reporting (version My client now needs dashboards for top-management of users. I did not see all the features of the financial reports that can allow me to create dashboards. Therefore, I'm trying to fix on the analysis Web or interactive reporting to accomplish the dashboard reports for the client. Can someone let me know which is a better tool to create dashboards? Are there advantages and limits of one over the other?

    Thanks in advance for any help or suggestion.

    Kind regards

    OBIEE has reporting and dashboard features and is the main tool now pushed by Oracle, while IR and WA are the older products acquired through the acquisition of Hyperion, but are not actively enhanced with new features.

    OBIEE 11 g connect to essbase and there are lots of interactive features, some similar to WA and other more advanced.

    The only thing to pay attention is to have an overall plan for the use of data sources and making sure that you have consistent definitions of baptisms and data (or better yet a kind of Master Data management tool/process).

  • Latest version of Firefox has been paralyzed for handling web page graphics

    I just updated to Firefox version 38.0.1 from version 35. This late update is due to an unfortunate twist practices for a long time, which requires Firefox installs to be interactive. Now an update takes several hours of phone + line tied up, so it is done only rarely.

    Once I could just download the package during one of my occasional bouts (of our days, almost every week) a connection high flow, pass on to my computer via a USB flash drive, and then install Firefox in moments, without any internet connection active. It was much higher than the current method.

    The point of this letter, however, is a major fault in the 38.0.1 version, which makes it useless for most of my work. I need to know how to return to a better version of Firefox that works properly. > > > > > > Put online, publish, I found the link that hopefully, gt back me to the old version, but I still want this post somewhere where he could get some attention because the current situation is extremely poor. < < < < < <

    For more than a year, I wanted to write about a problem that became much worse with this latest version of the browser, but I never managed to work up the energy and the time - my problems made the slightest difference to anyone developing the browser code, I always asked? It looked like a long shot.

    Much of my time online is spent downloading of pages of graphs, tables, diagrams and occasional pictures. Because, I suppose, my normal 52 KB/s connection speed is too slow, after 15 to 25 minutes needed to fetch the page of interest, a large percentage of these illustrations show only one link, not the image itself. Right click on the links provided, one option "reload image" from the context menu. By clicking on that would load the image on the page, in place, making it usable article (it is often necessary to get a dozen or three dozen, graphics in this way).

    An interesting aspect of this finishing process, it's the very many graphics loaded so completely, almost immediately. Some required 20 seconds, 30, 60 or more, but not the majority.

    Failure that I often wanted to communicate to the subject, but never fact, unfortunately, is that some graphics began to load with the page, but somewhere before they finished, perhaps 10%, maybe 95%, they would stop. The lower part of the graph would then show just a black fill, or sometimes a white fill (empty). These partial graphs has never had the option "Reload image" from the context menu.

    The option 'Copy image location' has been in the context menu... If I chose, I could try to paste it into a new tab address bar or a new window. This produces the exact same partial graph, indicating that it must be taken from the browser cache/history/something already downloaded part, rather than its source.

    "Reload image" always read the chart full, but using the location of the image on these partial graphics, even though it was clearly a web address, has no. To get the complete picture for these partially loaded graphics, I had to close the browser that by my settings, erases always each part of the story. Then using the location of the copied image above, I was able to load the graphic on the web. This has never been useful for the study of an article.

    A few times, I've experimented by 'reload the current page'. It was clear that it was not as a useful solution. It can load charts missing or incomplete, taking another 20 minutes to redo the page, but it also ignored, or only partially loaded, graphics that were present and complete the first time the page is loaded. What are the images have been provided only in the form of tags, or are incomplete, seems to be random.

    Another flaw is that, pretty often. the images I had to reload were released on the page that it loaded, but then disappear before the end of the loading page. This seems particularly bad performance, since the data obviously had been correctly downloaded. However, I could at least reload these images after loading the page.

    I experience a number of times where I had access to high-speed broadband. I've never known completely empty or partially loaded images, so I assumed the difficulty as a feature of my line connection telephone slow. NO, I can't afford a connection high speed, period, for sure, even if having one would be very nice...

    In the old version of browser, where 'Reload image' was an option, the obvious difficulty for the problem above with partially loaded images would have been to always provide the option "reload image", no matter if the image was missing completely, partially loaded, or fully charged - always reload the website, never to leave already downloaded material. Simply put the reload option in the context menu for all charts and check that it still works properly.

    Now, Firefox version 38 is much worse. It doesn't have the option "reload image". In its place is 'View image' replacing my entire page loaded painfully slowly, with the missing image. If the image is completely absent (a single a tag e.g. "fig 3a"), I can use the 'copy the location of the image', which paste it in a new tab and get the picture on this new tab. It is a very inconvenient way to try to read an article, especially when 27 graphics didn't load the first time.

    I only watched two these pages since the browser update. None of these finished with images partially responsible (although they all had two images only as tags), so I don't know if the location of the image 'copy' to a partial image, pasted into a new tab always will only provide the same partial graph. However, this problem, compared to the current impossibility of 'image' Reload in place on the page, is indeed minor.

    I can't do the job that I have to do if I can't get the downloaded material. I need a previous version browser which has at least the Reload menu popup "image" option I hope this option will also discount on future versions. It would be really good if the image reload option would be still available for each graph, as described above. Right now I need to know how to revert to the version 26, or a later version that still has the option "reload image".

    It sounds like the extension to display selected Images is the best solution, but for later use on the context menu: If you hold down the CTRL key when you click on View Image, it will be directed to a new tab, and if you hold down the SHIFT key when you click on View Image, it will be directed to a new window.
