Types of Views in OBIEE

View Name
Compound Layout
Use the compound layout view to assemble different views for display on a dashboard.
On the Criteria tab, you can click the following button to access the compound layout view.
Use the title view to add a title, a subtitle, a logo, a link to a custom online help page, and timestamps to the results.
Use the table view to show results in a standard table. Users can navigate and drill down in the results. You can add totals, customize headings, and change the formula or aggregation rule for a column. You can also control the appearance of a column and its contents, and specify formatting to apply only if the contents of the column meet certain conditions.
On the Criteria tab, you can click the following button to access the table view.
Use the chart view to drag and drop columns to a layout chart. You can customize the title, legend location, axis titles, and data labels. You can customize the size and scale of the chart, and control colors using a style sheet.
Oracle BI Answers supports a variety of standard chart types, including bar charts, column charts, line charts, area charts, pie charts, and scatter charts. Custom chart subtypes include two-and-three-dimensional, absolute, clustered, stacked, combination, and custom.
On the Criteria tab, you can click the following button to access the chart view.
Pivot Table
Use the pivot table view to take row, column, and section headings and swap them around to obtain different perspectives. You can drag and drop headings to pivot results, preview them, and apply the settings. Users can navigate through pivot tables and drill down into information. Users can create complex pivot tables that show aggregate and nonrelated totals next to the pivoted data, allowing for flexible analysis. For an interactive result set, elements can be placed in pages, allowing users to choose elements.
On the Criteria tab, you can click the following button to access the pivot table view.
Use the gauge view to show results as gauges, such as dial, bar, and bulb-style gauges.
Use the filters view to show the filters in effect for a request. Filters allow you to constrain a request to obtain results that answer a particular question.
Column Selector
Use the column selector view to permit users to dynamically change which columns appear in results. This allows users to analyze data along several dimensions. By changing the facts, users can dynamically alter the content of the results.
View Selector
Use the View Selector view to select a specific view of the results from among the saved views. When placed on a dashboard, the view selector appears as a drop-down list from which users can make a selection.
Use the Legend view to document the meaning of special formatting used in results, such as the meaning of custom colors applied to gauges.
Funnel Chart
Use the funnel chart view to show a three-dimensional chart that represents target and actual values using volume, level, and color. It is useful for depicting target values that decline over time, such as a sales pipeline.
Use the narrative view to show the results as one or more paragraphs of text. You can type in a sentence with placeholders for each column in the results, and specify how rows should be separated.
Use the ticker view to show the results of the request as a ticker or marquee, similar in style to the stock tickers that run across many financial and news sites on the Internet. You can control what information is presented and how it scrolls across the page.
Static Text
Use the static text view to include static text in the results. You can use HTML to add banners, tickers, ActiveX objects, Java applets, links, instructions, descriptions, graphics, and so on, in the results.
No Results
The no results view allows you to specify explanatory text to appear if the request does not return any results.
Logical SQL
Use the logical SQL view to show the SQL generated for the request. This view is useful for trainers and Oracle BI administrators, and is usually not included in results for typical users.
You cannot modify this view, except to delete it.
Create Segment
The create segment view is for users of the Oracle's Siebel Marketing Version 7.7 (or higher) operational application. Use it to display a Create Segment link in the results. Users can click this link to create a segment in their Oracle Siebel Marketing operational application, based on the results data.
Create Target List
The create target list view is for users of Oracle's Siebel Life Sciences operational application integrated with Oracle's Siebel Life Sciences Analytics applications. Use it to create a Create Target List link in the results. Users can click this link to create a target list, based on the results data, in their Oracle Siebel operational application.
