Navigating Back to Oracle eBS from Oracle BI EE

In one of the my earlier posts I was able to navigate from Oracle eBS directly into Oracle BI EE. By default I was not able to navigate back to the Oracle eBS homepage. After a little research on Google and My Oracle Support I found a link with a; ‘How To : Navigating Back to EBS from OBIEE’ (Id: 872092.1).

Check the following in your Oracle BI Dashboard Menu.

Add the LogoffUrl-tag to your instanceconfig.xml and restart the Presentation Server

<LogoffUrl> <a href="http://localhost:8000/OA_HTML/OA.jsp?OAFunc=OAHOMEPAGE">http://serverUrl:8000/OA_HTML/OA.jsp?OAFunc=OAHOMEPAGE</a>         
</LogoffUrl>

 Your instanceconfig.xml-file will look something like this:

<ExternalLogon enabled="true">
<LogoffUrl> <a href="http://localhost:8000/OA_HTML/OA.jsp?OAFunc=OAHOMEPAGE">http://serverUrl:8000/OA_HTML/OA.jsp?OAFunc=OAHOMEPAGE</a>         
</LogoffUrl>
  <ParamList>
  <Param name="NQ_SESSION.ICX_SESSION_COOKIE"
  source="cookie"
  nameInSource="VIS"/>
  <Param name="NQ_SESSION.ACF"
  source="url"
  nameInSource="acf"/>
  </ParamList>
</ExternalLogon>
</Auth>  

Replace the LogoffUrl according to your specifications
Check the your Oracle BI Dashboard Menu again and verify that a ‘Log Out’-link is in place. Via this link you can navigate back to the Oracle  eBS Homepage.
