OBIEE 11.1.6..Environment incompatible with IE 10 version.



There are OBIEE 11g incompatibility issues with IE10 and we had already raised SR with Oracle for the same.

As per updates from Oracle , IE10 is not certified with 11.1.1.6.x or 11.1.1.7.0. The supported browser versions with respect to 11.1.1.6.+ are as follows:
"Chrome 12+
Internet Explorer 9.x
Firefox 6+"

That is the reason there are issues with the IE10 in your environment. For IE users, it is recommended to use the IE9 browser to use OBIEE, or use the supported browser as mentioned above.

Workaround 1
1. In IE browser window :    Go to Tools -> F12 Developer Tools. This opens a window  in the  lower half of the browser.
2. Make the Browser Mode as IE 10 and Select Document Mode as IE 9 Standards.
 Whenever a new tab is opened in IE10 , we need to do steps 1 and 2. The document mode settings cannot be set to 'IE9 Standards' globally.

Workaround 2

These steps would help to roll back to your original IE version before it got upgraded to IE10 -
Ø  Go to Windows Control Panel > select Programs and Features (note if you have windows XP then it would be ‘Add/Remove Icon’) > select ‘Turn Windows features on or off’ > You should now see a popup called   "Windows Features".
Ø  Un check Internet Explorer 10 > you get a popup message warning; just click ‘Yes’ > click ‘OK’ button.
Ø  Now back to the program and feature screen click "View installed updates"  > scroll down until you see Internet Explorer > right click > uninstall and click ‘OK’ all the way out.
Ø  Reboot your computer and let Windows go through its update. When it's done you should have your old Internet Explorer browser back.

  3. While I'm not advocating to change delivered code, there is a way you can upgrade to IE10 but have browsers downgraded behind the scenes to run OBIEE 11g as IE versions 7-9 by doing the below

    navigate to
    Oracle_BI1/bifoundation/web/display/featuretables/
    and open iecommon.xml

    modify the line that shows below:
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=100" >

    and change to
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=9" >

    This will force the meta tag that's push with each html page to be rendered as document type IE9. You can take this all the way down to IE7.

    Keep in mind, this method isn't officially supported. However, when you have no control over how IE is rolled out in your organization you're really forced to do things out the ordinary to keep the application functioning

    Thanks!

    1. Hi,

      I understand this compatibility switching . But Do you know if this works well with OBIEE 10g (10.1.3.4.1) . We have clients across world having diff IE versions and we don't want them to guide on compatibility switch and we want to pass this tag automatically as Emulate with IE7 . I tried this tweak in 10g iecommon.xml file with no hope.
      May be you know if this would work ?
      Any help will be appreciated .
      Thanks
