Enabling the Remote Data Gateway in OAC
Configuring the Remote Data Gateway Agents
Validating OAC Remote Data Access
Log into OAC. From the home page, navigate to the DV Console:
Click the Hamburger icon.
Click Remote Data Connectivity
Click Enable Data Gateway
Configuring a Remote Data Gateway Agent requires navigating between the OAC Remote Data Connectivity console and the Remote Data Gateway Agent console.
Start the RDG i.e. Oracle Analytics Data Gateway.app from the Applications folder.
Start RDG i.e. datagateway.exe from the installation directory.
Starting the RDG Configuration Utility requires browser access to the RDG host and port.
To test if access is available, use a browser and the following URL:
http://<Your RDG host name/IP>:<Your RDG HTTP port>/obiee/javads?status
If successful, an XML response is returned.
To start the configuration:
http://<Your RDG host name/IP>:<Your RDG HTTP port>/obiee/config.jsp
From the OAC instance. Copy the URL up to the end of the host name
e.g. < instance >-<tenancy>.analytics.ocp.oraclecoud.com
Once the various configuration utilities have been started, the GUI is the same for all.
Enter the OAC URL obtained above and click Generate Key
Copy the generated key to the clipboard
Leave the other fields blank unless you want to restrict the hosts that an agent can access or restrict the type of access. See About Connecting to On-premises Data Sources.
Leave the configuration screen as is and switch over to OAC,
Go to the OAC Remote Data Connectivity page in OAC.
Optionally enter a Name or one is created for you. Paste the key generated from the Agent definition screen into the Public Key. Note that the ID and Host are populated from the key contents. Click OK.
The agent is registered.
Return to the configuration utility.
Click Test. A Successfully authenticated message appears.
Click Save. A Successfully Submitted message appears
With the agent(s) configured and running, creating a new DV data connection validates that RDG is configured correctly.
Login or Go to the OAC home page
Click the Hamburger icon.
Enter the required fields.
Check the Use Remote Data Connectivity box.
You can now create DV Data Sets and projects using the remote data source.
