    Dear All,
    Can anybody tell me the significance of 'Intelligence Tab' in iSupplier:full access control. Also please let me know the required setups or inputs for generating the graphs present in that tab.

    Both,

    Have you checked your browser settings. As for the significance of the tab you can check the Oracle Documentation. If you are on IE 8, it is not supported.Try through Firefox.

    Make sure you do the following;

    for IE 7 and 6

    1)Change the security settings to Medium-Low
    2)Add the website to your trusted site(Ebiz url)
    3)Allow the isupplier port in your firewall by creating an exception(Wont advise disabling firewall)
    4)Internet option security tab allow downloads, open file settings
    5) Make sure verify server settings is unchecked

    Restart your browser and retry and you should be able to see anything available.
    Hope this gets you started.

    Manik,

    My previous reply is when the Intelligence tab is not displaying properly. Whether you can access the tab is determined by the privileges when you set up Isupplier portal. Make sure the appropriate internal view is assigned (Security>User>Define> Assign the appropriate responsibility).
    Now the significance of this tab is all the business intelligence that comes with the product. Basically it gives you the statistics readymade to analyze the performance of your suppliers. No of PO's, value so on and so forth.
    Hope this helps.
    To generate the graphs you will need to enter data as without data you will not see anything.
    For setups of I supplier refer to the Oracle guide.

    Dear Manik,

    Apologies for the delay. Have been tied up with stuff. Now tell me what instance you are working on? Vision? or a Production Instance? I know the answer but tell me this so that I can point you in the right direction.
    cheers

    Yes This is what I wanted to find out. See the only two says you will not be able to see the Intelligence tab are

    1) It is excluded in the menu exclusions of the responsibility that your are using to access isupplier. So you go to sysadmin and see if there is anything in the menu exclusions of the responsibility and remove it and then try to access it.

    2) The business Intelligence tab will not show anything if DBI is not fully implemented. Check if DBI is fully implemented for use with vision.

    Since you plan to implement it in Production, I suggest if point 1 and 2 leave you with doubts on the next steps log a service request with Oracle and implement it in a test instance rather than vision as a test instance will mirror your production setup. Oracle will get back to you on what you are missing after you answer their queries with your System RDA and other diagnostics.

    * If you see the tab but no graphs then it is a data issue. You will then need to analyze what info is shown in there and enter the information to show up in there.

    cheers

    Dear Ramji
    Let me clear you that right now i am using the Solution Beacon vision instance with the responsibility of 'iSupplier full access'. Now tell me how to interact with data so that the graph can come properly for the intelligence tab.

    Regards
    Manik

    Dear Manik,

    I was clear from the Beginning. See I wrote earlier. You see the tab in the Isupplier full access responsibility but see no graphs. In order to see graphs you should enter data for the respective operating units. Let me illustrate for your benefit...

    In that tab you will find Price Change by PO number.
    You need to enter a number of PO's for whatever OU you choose and enter price changes for that to reflect/show up in this tab.
    Similarly Match a number of PO's to Invoices and the relevant statistic will appear here.
    All this info is caputured for OU/Buyer/Currency/Periods/amounts as part the built in Business Intelligence.
    Basically it picks up info from the database and you can tweak it from the front end to give information as on a particular date, for a certain number of days, for certain suppliers/ for certain buyers etc.

    Hope this clarifies your query.
    cheers
    Ramji

    Dear Manik,

    NO only the supplier. You also need to enter transactions for the supplier (PO's to Matching) for it to show up.
    cheers

    Dear Manik,

    Take an AP test script (TE40) from the forum. Enter Invoices as per the instructions. If you get stuck along the way, let me know.
    cheers
