To add a report or folder to BI Connector's cache list using Manage Reports List option, you have to enter its absolute path. This path can be copied from OBIEE by following the below steps.

Step 1: Login to your OBIEE from a browser

Step 2: Click on Catalog menu.

Step 3: On the left side navigation pane, navigate to the folder or report to which you want to copy the path and click on it.

Step 4: Click the Properties under Task menu at the bottom of left side navigation pane.

Step 5: Copy the path from Location (1) and then add a '/' to it and then add the name (2) to it. 

Example: "/shared/BIConnector/AdventureWorks Report" + "/" + "ProductSales" (/shared/BIConnector/AdventureWorks Report/ProductSales)

You can now use this to add the report/folder to BI COnnector cache.


  • While copying the path from OBIEE, beware of the leading and trailing spaces in the name of the report or folder. Because those spaces may not be copied from OBIEE.
  • Also, make sure you are adding the path of a folder/report. You can verify its type by checking "Type" in properties ('Folder' for folder and 'Analysis' for report) as shown below:
