The most current standard PMF documentation is shipped with PMF both as an PDF document for printing, and as online Help, in the five most commonly requested languages (English, Spanish, French, German, and Japanese). More translated versions are planned for the future.

The book is also available for download from http://documentation.informationbuilders.com/pmf.asp.

Also, two more books help you with your PMF implementations.

The PMF Installation and Configuration Guide is a time-saver for the field, customers, and customer support, as it covers:

  • Planning your a PMF installation
  • Installing PMF in a WebFOCUS environment
  • Upgrading PMF
  • Maintaining and Optimizing your PMF installation
  • Technical troubleshooting

It can be obtained from documentation.ibi.com at:

http://documentation.informationbuilders.com/pmf.asp.

The PMX Platform Developer Guide is a 100 page book that steps you through many common development and customization needs most common to consultants when making PMF work, look and act exactly the way you want it to. The Guide shows you how to:

  • Make new custom Gadgets to be included in the PMF Gadget catalog and to be placed on Dashboards
  • Accept parameters coming from PMF drills into your custom WebFOCUS reports and other Web applications
  • Develop your own custom look for PMF's out of the box User-Interface, gadgets, charts, indicator sets, and reports
  • Customize the drill menus displayed in various PMF contexts (example: clicking on Measures, Objectives, etc.)
  • Understand the overall architecture of PMF
  • And more...


It can be obtained from:
http://demoportal.ibi.com/doc/...-Developer-Guide.pdf

Notes about the PMX Developer Guide:

  • The Guide is a work in progress; it will be continually updated as PMF evolves and as new developer needs occur. We'll announce revisions here on the forum.
  • You don't need the Guide unless you're currently writing code in PMF to enhance it for your site or customers. The PMF Release documentation would be your source for general information on how to use the framework - e.g., learning how to use PMF, create and load data into Measures and Dimensions, etc.
  • Feedback about the Guide is welcome. You can post feedback right here on the PMF FocalPoint Forum by prepending your post title request with [PMF DEVGUIDE] We welcome suggestions on what more information to include, and any corrections. We'd also love to hear about specific customizations you've made, and to be able to include any code examples you'd like to pass to us in the Guide, of benefit to other PMF developers/cusomizers. As always we promise to answer your questions fast.


thanks!

The PMF documentation set distributed with PMF includes all these books (User, Author, Admin) in a single PDF volume.

If you have the PMF doc PDF from documentation.ibi.com or shipped with PMF, you have the administration book in that volume.
