    Title:
    BI Publisher - Unable to Save or Save As
    Summary:
    Cannot save a Data Model - had to create DM from scratch.
    Content:

    Hello all.

    My colleagues and I are still fairly new to Oracle and BI Publisher.

    I was creating a data model and got called away from my desk before I could save it.

    When I came back about 20 mins later, I could not Save or Save As my work.

    I had to exit BIP then recreate my DM. I was able to save it to My Folders.

    Is there a time out setting than can be changed to avoid this situation?

    The DM was simple so recreating it was easy. However, if this had been a more complex DM, it could have been disastrous.

    Thank you in advance.

    Yes, then you will be running a fully integrated one.

    So for the OBIEE side the change would be in the instanceconfig.xml:

    <ServerInstance>
    ...
      <Security>
        <ClientSessionExpireMinutes>
    15</ClientSessionExpireMinutes>
        <LogonExpireMinutes>
    15</LogonExpireMinutes>
      </Security>
    ...
    </ServerInstance>

     

    For BIP it's a bit more complex:

      It is probable that you were logged out due to a time-out. With regards to changing this the devil is in the detail of course.

      What exact version are you running? And is this a standalone BIP or an integrated one inside a full OBIEE?

        Hi, Christian.

        Here is the version info I could find:

        Oracle Business Intelligence 11.1.1.9.0 and Oracle Cloud Application 19B(11.13.19.04.0)

        I believe we are running inside a full OBIEE.

        It sounds like we need to save early and often.
