In WF 7, http://server-name/ibi_apps/ gets us to a home page with links to many aspects of WF, including “Run a stored procedure” and “Run an ad hoc procedure”.

In WF 8, http://server-name/ibi_apps/ gets us to a login page and then to what looks like Portal or BID. There does not appear to be a “home page” or any way to run ad hoc code.

Any ideas?

Hopefully you'll see 'Administration' as a menu item in the top right hand corner.

Click 'Administration' and then click 'Administration Console'.

The Administration Console link gets me to the client admin console. I was hoping for the general home page, like this - lots of valuable links (some non-admin):

Hi Francis,
Nope, those are gone... 8 is geared to BI, and, App Studio is geared toward GUI, so, everyone becomes a DBA and aggregates data.

Some of the links are under the Tools and Administration links at the top right of the screen.

Hi Francis,
Here is the doc for the "enhanced" WF 8 Ad-hoc process:

Tom,

Thanks for that tip.

I find that "Caution" regarding ad hoc reporting completely ridiculous. It indirectly suggests that with the GUI, "a careless user" would not be able to build "a request which uses so many resources that response time is adversely affected for all users"!

Hi,
You are close to the correct URL. Try
In WF 8, http://server-name/ibi_apps/Welcome

This always gets you to the welcome screen.

When you start using the Portal in WF 8 the /ibi_apps remembers to point you at a portal.

This page is not found in our installation of WF 8.0.07.

Maybe you need a port number after server-name ?

Francis, If you want a tool that has most of the tools consolidated in one place, you can just use dev/app studio. There are buttons that point to most of the pages you will need.
