WebFOCUS Application and Enterprise Editions


Creating Shortcuts

You can create shortcuts to repository files and Master files. Once a shortcut to a Master file is created, you can use it to build visualizations and reports. Once a shortcut to a repository file is created, you can copy, delete, edit, and run this item. You can also publish and share your shortcuts to make them available for other users and groups.

Note: Only users with the opShortcut privilege are able to create shortcuts. For more information on privileges, see the WebFOCUS Security and Administration technical content.

Applying Themes to Portals

Video: How to Configure a Custom WebFOCUS Home Page

Hello. In this video we would like to show the Redirect /ibi_apps setting and the set of options it contains that allow administrators to configure where they want to direct users when they sign into WebFOCUS. 
The location defined in these options applies to all users, regardless of whether they sign into WebFOCUS from the main sign-in page, a custom sign-in page, or the sign-in page of a pre-authentication provider.
The WebFOCUS Home Page contains many new features and uses a modern design that works well on desktops, laptops, and mobile devices.

Video: How to Manage Automatic Sign-outs

Hello, and welcome to this new feature video. This video will introduce you to the new session timeout settings, which are new as of WebFOCUS Release 8.2 Version 04.
Settings on the BI Portals page of the Administration Console Configuration tab help you configure a user-friendly session time-out experience that keeps your operations secure and minimizes user inconvenience.
Idle sessions expose potentially sensitive data and system resources to unauthorized use. Like other applications, WebFOCUS automatically ends an idle session after a specified amount of time. 

Personalizing Default Values for Filter Controls

You can personalize default values for filters in a page based on users or conditions. This feature uses the amper (&&) global variable to specify the default option for a filter control. For example, you can set the Region value for a user, using the && global variable, and link it to the filter control to show their region as the selected value.
