Unannounced Oracle OBIEE

There is documentation on the Oracle website for version that does not appear to have been announced yet.    

Some interesting new features are mentioned in the documentation:

  • A new style named Skyros
  • Ability to delay the execution of dashboard pages.  This will force users to select values from a prompt before executing the reports on the dashboard.
  • Ability to set and send multiple values in a dashboard prompt for request variables when the request variable is a string or numeric data type.
  •  A new view type named treemap. Treemap is a space-constrained, two-dimensional visualization for displaying hierarchical structures with multiple levels. The treemap is limited by a predefined, rectangular area and displays two levels of data. The size of each tile (or rectangle) is based on a measure, and the color of the tile is based on the second measure.
  • Ability to add global variables. A global variable is a column created by combining a specific data type with a value.
  • Using options on the Administration page, you can set the logging levels for Oracle BI Presentation Services. 


  1. From what I could tell, this is a release only for Fusion Apps: "Information about Oracle BI EE 11g Release 1 ( is only applicable to customers using Oracle Fusion Applications 11g Release 8 (11.1.8).).

    It'll be interesting to see if/when it becomes available for general usage.
