  3. 3. Introduction Preface Reporting feature in Oracle Enterprise Repository (OER) requires Oracle Business Intelligence (OBI) Publisher. The entry point for all the reporting is OER and the reports are hosted on OBI Publisher. Configuration is required between OBI Publisher and OER to interact with each other. Scope This guide covers the installation of OBI Publisher Enterprise Server 10g (10.1.3.4.1), including planning, installation and verification; configuring OER with OBI Publisher with system settings, users and roles; and deploying pre-configured OBI Publisher content into OER.
  4. 4. Installing OBI Publisher Installation Planning OBI Publisher is part of Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition 10g (OBI-EE). Download OBI-Publisher 10g Enterprise version 10.1.3.4.1. In this installation, the Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher 10g (OBI Publisher) is installed as a standalone under an OC4J Container. Installation Steps Unzip the downloaded OBI Publisher software bipublisher_windows_x86_101341.zip into a <software_home> folder.

  5. 5. Specify the folder to install the OBI Publisher. This directory would be the <BIP Home> For the demo installation, select the Basic installation. This will create a new OC4J container for OBI Publisher.
  6. 6. Select the password for the OC4J admin user. User: oc4jadmin (default admin name) Password: k1tty Review the selected components as part of the installation
  7. 7. Wizard configures the OBI Publisher Review the installation summary. The BI Publisher URL would be: http://host:port/xmlpserver. In this installation, it is: http://WISK21357002.emrsn.org:9704/xmlpser ver Default Administrator login is: Username: Administrator Password: Administrator Basic commands to start and stop: Start: C:OBI10g_Homeoc4j_bibinoc4j.cmd - start Stop: C:OBI10g_Homejdkbinjava.exe -jar C:OBI10g_Homeoc4j_bij2eehomeadmin.jar ormi://localhost:23791 oc4jadmin k1tty - shutdown force

  9. 9. Configuring OBI Publisher and OER Reports Deploy OER-OBI Publisher Content to OBI Publisher Server ‘OER-OBI Publisher Content’ is an OBI Publisher Repository containing seeded OBI Publisher based reports for Oracle Enterprise Repository. The default Repository for the OBI Publisher needs to be replaced with this OER- OBI Publisher Content Repository. OER-OBI Publisher Content Repository is packaged into the OER 11g. Stop the BIP OC4J Server Identify the OER-OBI Publisher Content Repository package in OER installation It will be located under: <oer_home>oer_111130coretoolssolutionsrepo rtsBIP-Oracle.zip Copy the BIP-Oracle.zip into a temporary directory under the BIP Home. C:OBI10g_HomeOER_BIP_Content Unzip the file.
  10. 10. Identify the BI Publisher Server Configuration file xmlp-server-config.xml Config file: C:OBI10g_Homeoc4j_bij2eehomeapplicationsx mlpserverxmlpserverWEB-INF xmlp-server- config.xml Backup the Config file. Edit the xmlp-server-config.xml to replace the repository file_path variable with the value pointing to the OER_OBI Publisher Content Repository that was copied as: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <xmlpConfig xml ns="http://xmlns .ora cle.com/oxp/xmlp"> <resource> <file pa th="C:OBI10g_HomeOER_BIP_ContentXMLP"/> </resource> </xmlpConfi g> Restart the BIP OC4J Server Login to the OBI Publisher Enterprise and verify the changes in the Report Catalog URL: http://wisk21357002.emrsn.org:9704/xmlpserver/login.jsp User Name: OER Password: OER_PWD User OER (with default password OER_PWD) is the user that is built in with the OER-OBI Publisher Content. This user will be configured in OER for Reports to connect to OBI Publisher during the report generation time. Navigate to Reports > Shared Folders > OER to see the OER-OBI Publisher Content report types listed.
  11. 11. Configure OER JDBC Data Source within OBI Publisher Login to OBI Publisher Enterprise as Administrator Navigate to Admin > Data Sources > JDBC Connections. Select OER (for Oracle) data source and update the database connection information pointing to the OER Database. Enter the OER database schema authentication values. These are the values that were used while installing and configuring the OER. This allows OBI Publisher to access the OER database to retrieve the data required to generate the reports. Data Source Name: OER Driver Type: Oracle 11g Driver Class: oracle.jdbc.OracleDriver Connection String: jdbc:oracle:thin:@localhost:1521:odb11g Database Username: OER_UID Database User Password: OER_PWD
  12. 12. Test the connection and save the configurations. Set the Server Cache Expiration Setting to set the refresh interval during the report rendering. Navigate to Admin > System Maintenance > Server Configuration > Caching > Cache Expiration (in minutes) Configure OER System Settings to Enable Reporting Following fields are configured within OER Admin > System Settings > Reports level. Enable Reports: True Report Server URL: http://wisk21357002.emrsn.org:9704/xmlpserver/OER Report Server Endpoint URL: http://wisk21357002.emrsn.org:9704/xmlpserver/services/PublicReportServices Report Server Name: OER Report Server Password: OER_PWD Enable Excel Output for Reports: True
