  • 10g: OracleBIData_Home\web\res\your_style\mydirectory\myimage.jpg
  • 11g: (Fusion Middelware|Weblogic|OPMN) - Directory Structure and Home\bifoundation\web\app\res\your_style\mydirectory\myimage.jpg
  • Since 11.1.1.9.0, the fmap location is CustomerResourcePhysicalPath\myStyle\. Example after following this article: fmw_home/instances/instance1/bifoundation/OracleBIPresentationServicesComponent/coreapplication_obips1/analyticsRes/res/s_myName/mydirectory/myimage.jpg

You must refer to it in OBI Presentation service as :

fmap:mydirectory\myimage.jpg
