Product Ideas Portal

Got an idea for a new feature? Maybe a tweak to make something work even better? Wish there was an integration with another product to make you even more productive? You've come to the right place.

The Product Ideas Portal lets you submit whatever product feedback you have, good, bad, ugly, and anywhere between.

Want to stay anonymous? Don't worry, no email address or name fields are shared on the public portal. You can create an account which lets you vote on other people's ideas and receive updates when your idea's status changes.

To learn more about how an idea becomes a feature, check out this infographic.

Enable API to create and modify DB connection string

Need an API to enable the ability to create and modify the DB connection string in the DB asset.

Currently the Oracle DB asset can be added and managed via API but the connection string cannot be created nor modified via API.

This can only be done using the UI.

We have 4000+ Oracle connections to create and modify.

Adding these only by UI is cumbersome, and prone to error and manual intervention is too much.

    PUT Databases/{id} was also added in 6.9 which does allow you to specify the Template string in the data body.

    Since this was posted, BI 6.9 had been released andwe have confirmed that the Connection string can be assigned only during creation of the Oracle DB asset (in BI 6.8)  and can be created vi API (in BI 6.9 though not in Release Notes). But Modifying an existing Oracle DB asset's connection string is still not possible. So the Modify part of the Idea is still outstanding.
