Please note that Discoverer is now out of support and is being replaced by a new reporting tool called Power BI. The desktop version of Power BI is already available for staff to download, but is not currently connected to any data sources. Work between IT Services and Business Teams is ongoing and a phased launch by University area is planned. Discoverer will be decommissioned only once Power BI is fully launched.


Oracle Discoverer was the reporting tool at the University of Manchester.

For existing users who need a refresher on the application there is a suite of online training modules. These modules cover all the topics that were covered in the classroom based training with the added advantage of the training being separated into individual topics and you can choose to view the topics that are most appropriate for your requirements. You can visit them in any order and as many times as necessary.

To accompany the online training and by way of providing quick answers to Discoverer questions we have produced a suite of How-to Guides.

If you have a Discoverer account but you've forgotten your password or you haven't accessed Discoverer for a while and now your password won't work, you can request a password refresh.
