OBIEE 11g – How to Add New Fonts in Answers and Dashboards


This blog is an attempt to share information which I have recently came across regarding adding new fonts in Answers and Dashboards.

Add New Font

Open the file ../Oracle_BI1/bifoundation/web/msgdb/messages/commonuitemplates.xml and add the new font, e.g. Calibri is added as shown below, don’t forget to save file once done.

<WebMessage name="kuiFormatUIFontOptions" translate="false">
<HTML>
<option value="Arial">Arial</option>
<option value="Arial Black">ArialBlack</option>
<option value="Arial Narrow">Arial Narrow</option>
<option value="Calibri">Calibri</option>
<option value="Courier New">Courier New</option>
</HTML>
</WebMessage>

Add Font in Schema for Validation

Add font details in schema for validation: Oracle_BI1/ bifoundation/ web/ schemas/ analysis_formats.xsd

xs:simpleType name="fontFamily">
<xs:annotation>
<xs:documentation>family of fonts supported</xs:documentation>
</xs:annotation>
<xs:restriction base="xs:string">
<xs:enumeration value="Arial"/>
<xs:enumeration value="Arial Black"/>
<xs:enumeration value="Arial Narrow"/>
<xs:enumeration value="Calibri"/>
<xs:enumeration value="Courier New"/>
</xs:restriction>
</xs:simpleType>

  3. Hi,

    Aren't you suppose to also put the font on the server somewhere?
