Art of BI: OBIEE Usage Tracking – Install in < 20 minutes

If you haven’t explored the full depth of OBIEE and all of its majestic glory then you may have not yet seen the sample RPD and web catalog which can integrate with your RPD to track user access statistics, longest running queries, etc. By the way Oracle aptly named this Usage Tracking. This is a fantastic tool and below I have put together the web’s first video tutorial on how to install and configure the basics of the Usage Tracking RPD. In subsequent posts I look to explore Usage Tracking in more detail as well as to show you how to migrate the schema from the basic, dare I say lonely Usage Tracking RPD, and integrate it with a more real world scenario RPD like the one your company runs its supply chain analytics from. The video is below – enjoy.

Remember, the toll for watching this video is simply to leave a comment. If you learn anything from the video then you must leave a comment and praise it heavily. : )

  1. Christian,

    Loved the video format. I'm just now getting back into OBIEE…by getting back I mean getting started again. I used it for just a couple of months earlier this year.

    Anyway, appreciate the time and effort you went to to make this. Very nice and informative.


  2. Nicely Done Christian…twenty miutes well spent! (Vesus Oracle Documentation with gaps and about 15 blog sites) – this is clean and simple!!

  3. I'll just have to take everyone else's word that this video is helpful. My company blocks streaming video… Is there any other way I can get a copy of the video? I'm getting to set up Usage Tracking and this sounds like it will really help.



    1. Jerry,
      Our videos are actually hosted at Vimeo so you would have to go there via the link under the video. If you company blocks streaming video you are SOL either way. You'll have to go to the public library or use another connection/machine to see it. Sorry your company has the good people on such lock down. : )

  4. very good presentation. How to take this usage tracking rpd and integrate with any custom rpd to get statistics.

    I am new to the OBIEE world .
