Importing and Configuring the RDF Add-on

How to:

The RDF Add-on is distributed as a single Change Management package that can be imported in the WebFOCUS Business Intelligence Portal (BI Portal). To access the contents of the package, unzip the file and move the RDFTemplates folder, which contains the RDF Add-on contents, to the following location on your machine:


Adding content to this folder will make it accessible from the Change Management Import facility in the WebFOCUS BI Portal.

Note: If you are using a different version of WebFOCUS or changed some of your settings during the installation of WebFOCUS, you may need to move the package to a different folder to make it accessible for a Change Management Import.

Before importing the RDF Add-on Change Management Package, ensure that the following settings are configured accordingly in the Administration Console.

Reference: Configuring Existing Content for the RDF Add-on

The RDF Add-on content is configured for use with the angular.sty StyleSheet, so pre-existing content made using other WebFOCUS StyleSheets may not format correctly when referenced or imported in an RDF page.

To format them for use with the RDF Add-on, you will need to include the path to the angular.sty StyleSheet. Right-click the procedure file in the App Studio Environments Tree panel and click Open in Text Editor. Add the following lines of syntax after the line ON GRAPH SET STYLE * or ON TABLE SET STYLE *:
