OBIEE Administration – useful linux environment variables

I have been working a lot on content migration and service configuration of our linux-based OBIEE servers lately. One thing that has definitively helped me a lot is that I took some time to define these linux environment variables on the linux account’s ~/.bash_profile file:

OBI_HOME=<your path to the OracleBI folder>  #this helps me navigate really quick to my OracleBI folder (ie. OBI_HOME=/some/really/long/path/OracleBI)
export OBI_HOME

OBI_DATA=<your path to the OracleBIData folder>  #this helps me navigate really quick to my OracleBIData folder (ie. OBI_DATA=/some/really/long/path/OracleBIData)
export OBI_DATA

OBI_REP=<your path to the repository folder>  #this helps me navigate really quick to my OBIEE repository folder (ie. OBI_REP=$OBI_HOME/server/Repository)
export OBI_REP

OBI_CAT=<your path to the presentation server catalogs folder>  #this helps me navigate really quick to my OBIEE presentation server catalogs folder (ie. OBI_CAT=$OBI_DATA/web/catalog/)
export OBI_CAT

Now I can move to my repository folder from anywhere in the file system by just typing:

$ cd $OBI_REP
