OBIEE 11g- Action Link Menu

OBIEE 11g provides a good feature to show the links in drop down. This option can come into picture when we are navigating to a separate report/page/web pages etc.
This reduces the dashboard complexity by displaying more links on the page and consuming the space in the page. We can open the new analysis in the same window or to a new window.
So lets get into a simple Action Link Menu creation.

In the dashboard page, edit and drag the Action Link Menu object into the dashboard.

You can find the properties to add to the Action Link Menu

Clicking on the Green (+) symbol will give the number of separate links to be navigated.

I am preferring to provide Google and OTN navigation from these links.

Save the page settings and click on the Links Menu and you will find the sub menus attached.


  1. Hi,
    I have a report generated through Published Reports in OBI 11 g.
    I want to have drill down options for these reports.
    Please suggest how should I implement it.

    1. Hi Rahul,
      Thanks for stopping by. And please do mention your questions in 'YOUR QUESTIONS' tab.
      To be honest, I have worked on Publisher reports very less.
      But hope the below links will throw light on your requirement.

      And please dont forget to mention in what way you resolved, in order to help others with similar issues.

      Kind Regards
