Oracle Analytics Cloud Service (OACS) 17.3.5 is Available – apply the latest patch

This caveat to the latest patch was talked about a TON at OOW this year ..

OAC – Essbase as a Data Source in OAC – DV

It is really all about creating two (2) Access Roles on the OAC – Essbase-side

This is the Oracle Support document that is easy enough to walk through
OAC : How to create connection to Essbase from Visual Analyzer (VA) in Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC) (Doc ID 2265410.1)

Once the roles are created you are then able to set up OAC – Essbase as a data source in OAC – DV, pretty cool! Happy visualizing 💭  👀
More posts on OAC DV coming soon.

My MLB Baseball Essbase cube in the cloud fun side project (Yes, that is what i consider something fun to work on nights and weekends when I am not doing work-work, creating dioramas, reading, listening to all sorts of Disney movies, songs, dancing, etc.) has been coming along very nicely.

I am looking forward to seeing what that data looks like in OAC DV now! 😎
