Recommended Settings for Oracle Hyperion Products

Problem

Oracle has recommended settings for Internet Explorer (IE7, IE8, IE9, IE10 and IE11) when using Hyperion products.  I get this question a lot from my clients, so I thought I would share Oracles suggested settings.  Without changing these, there will be intermittent problems, and frustration points.

Solution

Configure browser to check for new version every time user visits a page

  • Open Internet Explorer
  • Go to Tools > Internet options > General
  • In “Browsing history” section click on “Settings” button and then select “Every time I visit the webpage” option
  • Click OK, then Apply.

Disable default pop-up blocking

  • Open Internet Explorer
  • Go to Tools > Internet options > Privacy tab
