    R13.19C Introducing OTBI Metadata Independent Mode Using BI Cloud Connector (BICC)
    Opt in to use the OTBI Metadata Independent Extract Mode in BICC introduced in R13.19C.

    What is the Change?

    Starting in Release 13.19C, BICC will no longer be dependent on the OTBI metadata repository, and the extract mode by default will use the OTBI metadata independent mode. Data Stores (or BIVOs) can be extracted independent of OTBI Metadata (RPD). The new BIVOs introduced in future releases of Oracle Applications Cloud will use OTBI metadata independent mode. The new mode eliminates the dependency on the existence of a BIVO in the OTBI metadata.

    How to Opt In to use the OTBI Metadata Independent Mode for Extraction?

    Refer to the attached document for detailed steps to opt in.

    Future Product Direction

    The OTBI metadata (RPD) dependent mode is going to be deprecated in Release 20C. Oracle Development strongly recommends that you switch your BICC extracts to use OTBI metadata independent mode by 20C. Refer to the attached document for more detailed information.  If you have further questions, contact Oracle Support.

      The title (and content) of the embedded PDF document does't seem to refer to independent it is "View Business Intelligence View Objects that support OTBI dependent mode Release 13 (Update 19C)".  Is there a list of the independent BIVO's?

      Hi Rohan,

      Will this allow us to create a custom PVO's/Data store from SaaS Tables and use it for our BICC data extractions?


      • Rohan Lobo

        Senthirajan, This option does not allow for creation of custom PVO's/Data stores(BIVOs) from SaaS Tables. BIVOs have to be first created in Fusion and then enabled for extraction in BICC.

      Also there is a new feature "UNION ALL for incremental extract".

      Details of this feature is not covered in the documentation, can someone share details of this functionality?

      • Rohan Lobo

        Senthirajan, It looks this question was answered in the SR. Please refer to Doc ID 2576778.1. A doc bug has also been raised to add more details in the documentation.
