Change ‘Go’ Button Name of OBIEE Dashboard Prompt


Today one question here.  How to change OBIEE dashboard prompt ‘Go’ button Name.

By default, prompt button name will appear as follows:

Go Button

Now Button Name Go has to change to desired Name

  • Navigate to {OracleBIDir}:\oraclebi\web\msgdb\l_en\messages
  • Open globalfiltermessages.xml file (before opening this file, you better take backup of this file)
  • Locate the following text

<WebMessage name="kmsgGFPGo"><TEXT>Go</TEXT></WebMessage>

  • Edit the text ‘Go’ to your desired text.
  • Here I am editing it to ‘Confirm’

<WebMessage name="kmsgGFPGo"><TEXT>Confirm</TEXT></WebMessage>

  • Save the changes to file
  • Restart Presentation service

  1. Hi Kishore and Naresh,
    Regarding the change that you have mentioned above, Is it true that this change to “globalfiltermessages.xml” makes changes accross the application. Now all over the I will see prompt as “Confirm”. Is there a way we can have customized names for select screens . For e.g for some screens I want the prompt to Read “Confirm” and in some I want it to read “Draw Report”. Is this possible ?
