How To Workaround Internet Explorer URL Length Limits When Using OBIEE 11g GoURL on Oracle Exalytics Or Standalone OBIEE (Doc ID 1578470.1)

Last updated on JUNE 12, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Exalytics Software - Version 1.0.0.0.0 to 1.0.0.3.0 [Release 1.0]
Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition - Version 11.1.1.6.0 to 11.1.1.7.1 [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

When using Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) 11g (standalone, or, on Oracle Exalytics), the goURL will fail to work if the report URL length is greater than 2048 characters and if Internet Explorer (IE) is used as the web browser.  If the same report is run via Firefox, or Chrome, it completes.

Are there any workarounds to avoid this problem of URL length limits (2048 characters) in IE and the goURL?
