BI PUblisher

Selecting Data from the Repository

Introduction

As you may know, one of the many areas of responsibility I have as a product manager in the Enterprise Manager product management team is BI Publisher. BI Publisher is the tool of choice for reporting in Enterprise Manager. If it’s not a tool you’re familiar with, then you are missing out on a lot of the power of the Enterprise Manager repository to provide you the information you need to extend Enterprise Manager beyond the capabilities it currently has. You can read more about it on my BI Publisher page.

Of course, to reach the full capacity of the reporting you can extend Enterprise Manager with, you need to understand the Enterprise Manager repository, and that’s what this post will introduce you to. First, however, you need to understand a little more about the BI Publisher security model.

Although they can start it from the WLS Admin Console, the ’emctl status oms -details’ shows BI Publisher Server is Down, and they can’t even connect to it via the https://em12c.example.com:9702/xmlpserver/. They then attempted to run the emcli setup_bipublisher to re-register it with EM but get:

BI Publisher Integration in EM12c

As some of you would already know, for my sins I am the product manager with responsibility for BI Publisher in Enterprise Manager [I must have a lot of sins because I’m also responsible for Change Management, Compliance Management, Configuration Management (these three form the Database Lifecycle Management pack), jobs, the target discovery framework, and at least part of DBaaS along with data cloning and refresh </p />
