I have observed one strange/unexpected behavior long back, thought of sharing with you guys.
To observe please login to any OBIEE Dashboard now go to browser URL, replace all characters after saw.dll? With ReloadDashboard (url looks like: http://yourobieeserverurl/analytics/saw.dll?ReloadDashboard) and click on go.
What you guys expect?
What I have expected here, dashboard page reloads.
What actually happening is, dashboard shows error message “errorInvalid item name () -- not allowed to be empty”.
Now logoff from Dashboard, go to browser URL replace all characters after saw.dll? With ReloadDashboard and click on go.
Here what you guys expect?
What I have expected here, nothing happens.
What actually happening is, page keeps on reloading for infinite times, sometimes browser could go into hangup state.
I thinking oracle obiee developers not handled this query string parameter ( ’saw.dll? ReloadDashboard’) properly or testers missed this one or I am confused! What do you guys say about it? Did they did with some purposely?
