FYI,
     if you are using obiee10g version please look at the below path

Restart all services including oc4j

  2. Hi Paul,

    Thanks for this useful post.

    I have a similar requirement, but instead of downloading the pdf file my requirement is to open the file then-&–there without downloading it at all.

    Are there any modifications I can do to navigation URL to make it to open the pdf file.
