    Just googling around I’ve found a workaround (see Construct a dashboard with a ‘link or image view’, add a caption text and select URL as destination. The URL will be something like


    So I only have to reference that new dashboard from my custom HTML home page.

    I haven’t tested this solution yet. But I’m still interested in direct links to PDF files inside the catalog, Maybe as simple as the URL I’ve writen before?

    Solution tested and failed.

    The above link points directly to the PDF file, but I don’t want to point to a file but to a catalog folder. Of course, the same URL removing the final part (PDF file name) doesn’t work.

    As for the dashboard with ‘link or image view’ workaround, when using ‘simple’ URLs as ‘’ it works properly, but when using URLs as the one stated before, when saving the ‘link or image’ view it throws an error:

    ‘Script Injection Suspected’

    and doesn’t allow to save it. It seems OBIEE doesn’t allow to URL reference to itself.

    Almost solved: to put an URL inside a ‘text or image’ view it must not contain special characters. So replaciong ‘(‘, ‘)’and ‘.’ by its HTML counterparts makes (see the link be ‘approved’ by OBIEE.

    So the final URL is:

    But this is for the dashboard workaround. I’m still looking for a catalog folder direct link…
