Asked frequently are questions regarding navigation from reports (analysis in OBI 11g) and dashboards. We often want the integration to be quick and seamless and throw a navigation link anywhere within presentation services or in a third-party application to reference a dashboard or report passing along a filter prompt value, etc. For OBI 10g there were a few bloggers who even attempted to document the GoURL, etc. for themselves and share with the public. Now in OBIEE 11g I am happy that a full length documentation page explains all of the niche navigation entry points into dashboards, reports, prompts, and filters. It is available in the OBIEE 11gR1 documentation at this link within the integration part of the documentation.
It finally explicitly answers one question that we always get which is “Can you dynamically call a report to automatically download it into a format other than MS Excel?” – See here for that specific flag – (Apparently the short answer is NO).
