The basic Go URL command needs the full Presentation Catalog path to the request to execute. It returns the
default result view, which is defined in the request.
To find the catalog path : Answers > Manage Catalog > Item Properties
Path of an OBI Presentation Service Object

For example, the following go URL command returns the default result view as defined in the request, where
/users/gerardn/Test is the catalog path.

saw.dll?Go&Path=/users/gerardn/Test

Issuing SQL
The Go URL command can be used to issue Oracle Business Intelligence SQL. These forms of the Go URL
return tabular results. The basic options from &Style= and &Options= can be used here as well.
To issue Oracle Business Intelligence's simplified SQL, include the escaped SQL as a parameter to the Go URL.
For example:
saw.dll?Go&SQL=select+Region,Dollars+from+SupplierSales

where the FROM clause is the name of the Subject Area to query.

Alternatively, the command IssueRawSQL can be used to bypass the Web processing and issue SQL directly
against the Oracle BI Server.

Support
If an invalid URL is specified (for example, you type a parameter incorrectly), the browser returns the The
page cannot be found error with detailed text of HTTP 400 - Bad Request.

GUIDED NAVIGATION
OBIEE - Guided Navigation
About
Guided navigation is a feature of Oracle BI Interactive Dashboards that enables the content and layout of Oracle
BI Interactive Dashboard to change dynamically based on changes in the information being analyzed.
Specifically, sections in a dashboard page can be set up and only appear when there is interesting information
in the data.

Example

A dashboard for a sales manager might contain a section that only appears when sales volumes for major
products have declined in the current quarter, or if customer complaints have become a problem, a
section showing the rise in customer complaints would appear.

Individual links in a dashboard can work the same way. For example, when sales volumes for major
products decline, a link could appear with a message notifying the user of the decline. Clicking on the
link would bring up an analysis (or a whole dashboard page of analyses) focusing on these products.
