From Dashboards to Transactional Detail - Seamless drillback to EBS

  1. 1. REMINDER Check in on the COLLABORATE mobile app From Dashboards to Transactional Detail - Seamless drillback to EBS Prepared by: Preet Shah, Humana Linda Flood, Humana John Fortado, Emtec Inc. A business users case study of seamless drillback from OBIEE/OBIA key metrics dashboards to transactional detail in eBusiness Suite Session ID#: 14916
  2. 2. Pre-Integration/Aggregation Can I get to the detail? Can I go back to the item? From Dashboards to Transactional Detail
  3. 3. What we are doing Aggregate dashboard to Detail dashboard to EBS Invoice item Source to Warehouse E-Business Suite JD Edwards PeopleSoft Fusion SAP Siebel [OBIA Data Optimization and Performance Enhancing Techniques] What We Implemented Financial Analytics HR Analytics Project Analytics Procure & Spend Analytics Marketing Planning & Forecasting •CRM Supply Chain Profitability Management Service Management OBIA Overview
  4. 4. BI Challenges for Business and IT ■ Custom OBIEE 10g platform ■ Only GL Summary data to data warehouse ■ No sub-ledger data for Procurement, Projects, AP or AR ■ No drill back to source data for immediate results on issues ■ Volume growth in source data and external reporting requirements will not be sustainable ■ Data mining was the way for analysis and reconciliation ■ IT was over whelmed with all ad-hoc report requirements ■ Rudimentary reporting tools like Excel, MS databases and silo reporting tools like Hyperion and Discoverer are being used for dashboards and KPI’s
  5. 5. Business Expectations ■ The ability to use OBIEE as a front end to connect directly to sub-ledger detailed data ■ Produce reporting at a summary level on actual and budget information that allows for the drill back to the transactional level detail for research and reconciliation purposes ■ Able to replace disparate access databases and other places data is extracted and stored for data ■ Provide insights into procurement and spends for the budget managers ■ Leverage data mining to OBIEE for analysis and reconciliation ■ Provide operational reporting to support the daily business process ■ Analyze accounting entries at the transactional level for accruals, invoice and payments
  6. 6. The Business Case for Drill Back ■ Business Process before OBIA implementation ■ Time Consuming ■ Validation issues/Human Error ` OBIEE10g Balance Sheet Custom JE Detail Report Excel Reconciliation / Validation Issues Oracle EBS Validation
  7. 7. The Business Case for Drill Back ■ After Implementation Single Source – goto knowledge base ■ Efficiency ■ Less Risk Drill back No Separate Login OBIA Balance Sheet Trial Balance Oracle EBS Validation
  8. 8. What we implemented ▪ Financial Analytics ▪ HR Analytics ▪ Project Analytics ▪ Procure & Spend Analytics ▪ Marketing ▪ Planning & Forecasting •CRM ▪ Supply Chain ▪ Profitability Management ▪ Service Management
  9. 9. The Technical Aspects ■ Out of the Box Data Availability ■ Custom Reports for Drillback ▪ Aggregate dashboard to Detail dashboard to EBS Invoice item ▪ AP Transaction details report ▪ Trial Balance report drill down to transaction level
  10. 10. E-Business Suite ■ The EBS Target Form ▪ Identification ▪ Required Parameters ▪ Accepted Parameters ▪ Customization ■ ETL modifications ▪ Additional Fields ▪ Customization
  11. 11. EBS Security ■ EBS Responsibilities are Weblogic Roles ■ Responsibilities must exist in Weblogic as Roles ■ EBS Forms, Menu Exclusions, Functions, Profiles, URL’s ■ References: Implementing Data Security for Oracle E-Business Suite 11i in Oracle Business Intelligence Applications 7.9.3 (Doc ID 475387.1) Integrating Oracle Business Intelligence Applications with Oracle E-Business Suite (Doc ID 1343143.1) Integrator's Guide for Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) E16364-01

  15. 15. Connecting the Security Models ■ Responsibilities into Roles
  16. 16. Connecting the Security Models ■ Initblock Configuration DATA SOURCE SELECT FND_GLOBAL.RESP_ID, FND_GLOBAL.RESP_APPL_ID, FND_GLOBAL.SECURITY_GROUP_ID, FND_GLOBAL.RESP_NAME, FND_GLOBAL.USER_ID, FND_GLOBAL.EMPLOYEE_ID, FND_GLOBAL.USER_NAME, FND_GLOBAL.RESP_NAME FROM DUAL DATA TARGET ( Session Variables ) EBS_RESP_ID EBS_RESP_APPL_ID EBS_SEC_GROUP_ID EBS_RESP_NAME EBS_USER_ID EBS_EMPLOYEE_ID USER ROLES
  17. 17. Connecting the Security Models Connect to EBS for Roles SELECT DISTINCT 'ROLES', RESPONSIBILITY_NAME FROM FND_USER,FND_USER_RESP_GROUPS, FND_RESPONSIBILITY_VL WHERE FND_USER.user_id=FND_USER_RESP_GROUPS.user_id AND FND_USER_RESP_GROUPS.RESPONSIBILITY_ID = FND_RESPONSIBILITY_VL.RESPONSIBILITY_ID AND FND_USER_RESP_GROUPS.RESPONSIBILITY_APPLICATION_ID = FND_RESPONSIBILITY_VL.APPLICATION_ID AND FND_USER_RESP_GROUPS.START_DATE < SYSDATE AND (CASE WHEN FND_USER_RESP_GROUPS.END_DATE IS NULL THEN SYSDATE ELSE TO_DATE(FND_USER_RESP_GROUPS.end_Date) END) >= SYSDATE AND FND_USER.user_id = (SELECT USER_ID FROM FND_USER WHERE UPPER(USER_NAME) = '7421' ) SELECT USER_ID FROM FND_USER WHERE UPPER(USER_NAME) = ‘AnEBSUSER'
  18. 18. Connecting the Security Models
  19. 19. Connecting the Security Models ■ Populate Roles with the Authorization Block ■ Catalog object permissions granted to Roles ■ Presentation layer permissions granted to Roles ■ Data security (at the row level) is controlled by Operating Unit Organization and Company
  20. 20. Connecting the Security Models ■ Catalog object permissions granted to Roles
  21. 21. Connecting the Security Models ■ Presentation layer permissions granted to Roles
  22. 22. Connecting the Security Models ■ Data security (at the row level) is controlled by Operating Unit Organization and Company
  23. 23. Configuring Weblogic ■ Single Sign On Config File Configuration ▪ AuthenticationSchemas.xml <RequestVariable source="cookie" type="auth" nameInSource=“EBS SOURCE COOKIE" biVariableName="NQ_SESSION.ICX_SESSION_COOKIE"/> ▪ InstanceConfig.xml <EnabledSchemas>UidPwd,Impersonate,UidPwd-soap,Impersonate-soap,EBS-ICX</EnabledSchemas> <SchemaExtensions> <Schema name="EBS-ICX" logoffURL="https://louweblqs07.humana.com:9804/analytics/saw.dll?Logoff"/> </SchemaExtensions> ▪ ActionFrameworkConfig.xml <ebusinesssuiteconfig> <visible>true</visible> </ebusinesssuiteconfig>
  24. 24. Configuring Action Links OBIEE Action Links To EBS (Doc ID 1457278.1) OBIEE 11g: Link to Navigate to E-Business Suite is not Visible Doc ID 1527849.1 Configuring an OBIEE 11g Navigation Action Link to E- Business Suite 12 Fails With "Unable to execute function. (RESP_ID=0/RESP_APPL_ID=0)" (Doc ID 1539742.1)
  25. 25. Configuring Action Links
  26. 26. Implementing the Action Link
  27. 27. Using Drillback
  28. 28. The EBS Result
  29. 29. OBIEE Architecture
  30. 30. Lesson Learned ■ Requirements can quickly expand the original project scope ■ Installing into fresh environments leads to tweaking the application and the database ■ Additional time is required for load testing ■ Test strategy and test cases will change as complex calculations are added ■ The folder structure in the EBS menu is critical for drillback:
