Hide dashboard prompts/Section in OBIEE



There is a way to hide the dashboard prompts in OBIEE.

But, need to have a separate section containing this prompt.. that’s reason i made my article title as: prompt/Section 😉

Here is the way..

1. Edit Dashboard, go to Properties of Section > Format Section..

2. Expand Custom CSS Style Options (HTML Only) then select Use Custom CSS Style check box… and write the following code as shown:


It’s more effective then collapsible option..

And, you may ask what is the use of this. Because, when it’s not useful just get rid of it from dashboard.. 😉

But, i used it Here… I guess, now it has got credit. 😛

      • Hi Kishore & Naresh,

        1. Would it be possible to provide ranking on graphs by department based on their actual sales?

        2. If ranking is possible, Would it be possible to sort the department vertical graph bars by ranking?

        If not possible, please provide me the the alternative solution?

        Thanks & regards

    • That i agree, since css format will not be applied to download option. Download will bring all contents placed on dashboard. Let me think of how can we fix this issue.. But good catch 🙂
