How to embed a QlikView dashboard into an OBIEE dashboard page

In this post, I will explain how to embed a QlikView dashboard into an OBIEE dashboard page.

This can be useful if you have a scenario where OBI is your primary platform, but there are also dashboards built in QlikView or some other BI Platform, and you want to direct the users to one place for all dashboards instead of having to explain to them to “go here for this, and there for that”.

So, I am assuming you already have a QlikView dashboard built that you would like to embed into OBIEE.

Create or edit your OBIEE dashboard page. While on the page in edit mode, drop in/drag in an “Embedded Content” object.
DashboardObjectsMenu_EmbeddedContent

With the Embedded Content Object on the dashboard page in Edit mode, edit the “Embedded Content” Object.
Edit_EmbeddedContent_Object

In the Embedded Content Properties dialog …
– Enter the URL to your QlikView dashboard
– Check the box for “This URL Embeds an Application”
– and enter the Width and Height you desire for the embedded area.
– Optionally, check the box for “Hide Scroll Bars”. Make sure not to check this box if your dashboard is vertically longer than a typical monitor.

Click OK, and then Save your dashboard page.

When you now open your dashboard in OBIEE, you will see your QlikView dashboard embedded within the page.
