OAS 5.5 AKA the next version of OBIEE is available

Oracle Analytic Server (OAS) 5.5, is replacing OBIEE for local installation. You might consider is as equivalent to OBI 12.2.1.5 or 12.2.

Before installation make sure libgfortran is installed on your Linux (needed for advanced analytics, to prevent NSQError 46240.)


yum list installed | grep -i libgfortan 



If not, run:

yum install -y libgfortran





The Oracle download page is here



Since the Fusion Middleware link there is a bit complex to find I prefer the edelivery. 
You can download it from https://edelivery.oracle.com as well by searching "Oracle Analytics Server".



Add it to cart and Checkout.

The patch 30657796 is for in place upgrade cases.



 Please check the certification matrix before installation here.

The system is currently Linux



The RCU DB is currently only Oracle:


The Admin tool  is at the bottom of the download page is here.
