Hyperion Planning and PBCS: Dynamic Forms

Have you ever built a form in Hyperion Planning (or PBCS) that really needed to have the same dimension represented in both the user selectable page and the rows or columns?  Normally, we want to give the user the ability to filter a form dynamically.  As an example, perhaps I would like to select and…

Hybrid Essbase: Rapidly Make Parents Dynamic Calc

Hybrid Essbase is the biggest advancement in Essbase technology since ASO was released.  It truly takes Essbase to another level when it comes to getting the best out of both ASO and BSO technology.  Converting your application from BSO to Hybrid can be a long process.  You have to make sure that all of your…

Changing the Planning Repository without Restarting Planning

One of the long-running tenets of working with the Planning repository is that you must restart Planning to see your changes.  I’ve always heard that there were ways around this, but Oracle hasn’t ever been forthcoming with the specifics of how to make that happen.  Finally, at Kscope16 during my presentation on the Planning Repository,…

Brian @ Kscope16

It’s that time of year again…Kscope!  Unfortunately, Kscope always occurs during my busy season.  As a result, much like last year, this will be a very quick in and out trip.  I’ll be there Tuesday, June 28th only.  Luckily, both of my presentations happen to be on that day, so it worked out nicely for…

Drill-Through in PBCS and Hyperion Planning Without FDMEE

While recently debugging an issue with FDMEE, I needed to test drill-through in Hyperion Planning without using FDMEE.  But wait…can you even do that?  I had always planned on showing how to use Drillbridge with Hyperion Planning, but as I was talking with Jason, he mentioned we could even get it working in PBCS.  So…

Drill-Through with ASO Plan Types

If you are 11.1.2.4 and you use ASO Plan Types, you may be aware of a bug that prevents drill-through from working properly.  Essentially, I can define drill-through in BSO and everything works fine, but ASO just doesn’t work.  You can see the intersection as being available for drill-through, but when you attempt to actually…

The Planning Repository: HSP_ACCOUNT

Not to sound like a broken record, but…a few disclaimers: This is the fun stuff…that voids your warranty.  Not that you have to tell Oracle that you poke around here, but if you do, they will blame anything and everything that’s wrong on you for being in there. The content here has been tested and…

PowerShell and Hyperion: The Outline Load Utility

I was reminded recently that I promised to continue with PowerShell in my last PowerShell blog post, but that I hadn’t done it yet.  I may have gotten a little caught up in my home lab series.  So, if you were waiting and waiting for this, my apologies. Now that we have a little bit…
