    Need inputs to get the access to DBCS internal file system
    Content:

    Hi All,

    We need to know how to get the access to DBCS's internal file system and write files to that file system (custom directories in it) from BI report in Fusion cloud.

    Could you please let us know process.

    Thanks,

    Visu

      Is this a DBCS instance that you have created? If so, you can SSH to the host where the database is located by following the instructions here ->

        Hi Simon,

        Thanks for the info.

        The link explains how to access the DB instance through putty.

         

        Our requirement is to access the DBaaS's FTP file system.

        So that, we can create an FTP connection in SaaS and write files over there.

        Could you let us know.

         

        Regards,
        Visu.

      Hi Visu,

      If you can use putty/ssh to your DBCS environment, you should be able to use sftp or scp  to copy files over there also.

      Hi Simon,

      Like you said, we can SSH to the DB file system and place the file there manually.

      To automate, can we create the FTP connection in Fusion Cloud and make Report write the files directly to the directory in DBCS folder.

      Do we have FTP by default in DBCS and can we use this FTP details to write files from SaaS? Will this FTP usage be free?

      Please let us know.

      Vasudev, 

      Whether Fusion Cloud can generate reports directly to a folder in DBCS (using FTP or Not), this is a product specific question, best to post your question to the relevant SaaS forum on Cloud Customer Connect.
