    R13.18A OTBI BI Catalog Lockdown44.6

    Title:
    R13.18A OTBI BI Catalog Lockdown
    Summary:
    With 13.18A release customers will no longer be able to modify the shipped BI catalog content.
    Content:

    R13.18A OTBI Product Alert

    This product alert is published by Oracle OTBI Product Development.

    Release 13.18A Factory BI Catalog Lockdown

    To minimize upgrade regression, an enhancement has been introduced in the 13.18A release to permanently make the shipped BI catalog content read-only.  If users attempt to modify the shipped BI catalog content including folder permissions, they will receive an alert "You are not allowed to modify factory content. Save your own content in /Shared/Custom."  Customers that upgrade from R12 to R13 will no longer be able to make changes to the delivered BI catalog even with BI Administrator role. Starting with R13.18A, BI catalog folders will behave as follows:

    • Customers must save all custom content in /Shared/Custom folder or create new sub-folders under /Shared to maintain custom content.
    • Except for /Shared/Custom folder, customers can no longer make any modifications to the delivered BI catalog. If a user attempts to add, change or remove any object including permission list in the delivered catalog folder, he/she will get an error "You are not allowed to modify factory content. Save your own content in /Shared/Custom."
    • Customers are permitted to retain EXISTING custom top-level folders under Shared. All existing content in those top-level custom folders will be preserved.
    • Customers cannot add, remove or change permissions on the shipped folders, e.g. /Shared/ Human Capital Management
    • Customers cannot modify the folder permissions to 'hide' the shipped factory catalog folder, e.g. hide /Shared/Marketing.
    Impact on R12 upgrade customers:
    • For customers upgrading from R12, all existing custom content in /Shared/Custom or custom folders under /Shared and their sub-folders will remain as they are.  However, if customers have modified the content in the delivered BI catalog folders, e.g. added custom reports, modified delivered reports, modified folder or report permission, all changes to this content will be lost after the R13 upgrade.  Customers are advised to archive their custom BI catalog to a file prior to R13 upgrade; and after R13 upgrade customers can unarchive the custom projects in the /Shared/Custom folder.  

     

    • Fusion application users are auto-provisioned with BI Consumer role, which allows them to read and traverse the BI catalog folders. This access is for folder viewing and navigation only and doesn't give the user the privilege to view, open, edit and execute BI reports, for which the user has no security authorization. An enhancement is in development to restrict access to BI catalog folders such that a user will no longer be able to see and traverse BI catalog folders that he or she has no security authorization to access.

    Title:
    Pulling multiple candidate Q&A answers into single column
    Summary:
    Advice on how to combine multiple candidate answers into single column
    Content:

    We are currently running a campaign where a requisition has been duplicated 20 times. We have 6 'ace' pre screening questions that Taleo decided to duplicate each time the requisition was duplicated.

    Therefore we have 20 separate question codes for each question. From a reporting point of view, the business want candidates from all 20 reqs on a report complete with answers to said 'ace' questions in 6 columns.

    I need a solution to pull 20 separate answers into a single column. I will then repeat the process for each of the 6 questions.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    OTBI/BIP Reporting Gap Analysis
    Summary:
    Implementing Oracle ERP in all 3 modules ( HCM,SCM & Finance)
    Content:

    Hi,

    In the process of implementing Oracle ERP modules, there are many custom reports to be built using either OTBI and BIP.

    We wanted to know on how to do the gap analysis for identifying the reporting requirements in terms of either using out of the box reports provided by oracle versus customizing the out the box reports and building  new reports all together based on the customer report requirements

    Need details on how to get started on performing gap analysis on reporting part and get the reporting work started.

    Need details on whether to use OTBI versus BIP? Which one is feasible option to implement?

    Any insight will be helpful.

    Below are our the versions of the Oracle products that we are using.

    Hi,

    The deep links page in Fusion cloud show the following for the link to the payment https://<instance>.oraclecloud.com/fscmUI/faces/deeplink?objType=AP_VIEWPAYMENT&action=VIEW

    When I've used ap invoice and purchase order there is a unique identifier on the end (invoice id and po header id). Is there a way to find that value for the payment somewhere? 

    Examples of ap invoice and PO: 

    https://<instance>/fscmUI/faces/deeplink?objType=AP_VIEWINVOICE&action=VIEW&objKey=InvoiceId=300000047829672 
    https:/<instance>/fscmUI/faces/deeplink?objType=PURCHASE_ORDER&action=VIEW&objKey=poHeaderId=5036
