    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.

    "Apps Document Currency Code" in Procurement -...5.0

    Title:
    "Apps Document Currency Code" in Procurement - Procure To Pay Real Time
    Summary:
    "Invoice Currency" missing in Procurement - Procure To Pay Real Time Subject Area.
    Content:

    In 19B version, the invoice currency seems to be missing in Procurement - Procure To Pay Real Time Subject Area (Procurement - Procure To Pay Real Time -> Invoice Additional Attributes -> Invoice Currency). There is "Apps Document Currency Code" instead but the documentation does not have any information about this, logical sql provides source as "Procurement - Procure To Pay Real Time"."Invoice Additional Attributes"."Invoice Currency". Is there any specific significance for this column "Apps Document Currency Code"?

    "Supplier - Supplier Real Time"."- General"."Alternate Site Name" with Error: 14025
    Summary:
    While developing an OTBI Report using two Subject Areas ( "Payables Invoices - Transactions Real Time" and "Supplier - Supplier Real Time"), "Supplier - Supplier Real Time"."- General"."Alternate Site
    Content:

    When I create a OTBI Report with only "Supplier - Supplier Real Time", it works fine and generates the results.

    when I am creating OTBI report with below two subject areas
    1) "Payables Invoices - Transactions Real Time"
    2) "Supplier - Supplier Real Time"

    and use few columns as provided in "OTBI Report Query.txt", it works fine till for the rest of the columns from "Supplier - Supplier Real Time" except "Supplier - Supplier Real Time"."- General"."Alternate Site Name".

    If the report is developed with out all conditions then any column from "Supplier - Supplier Real Time" should fail, but it is not the case here.

    below columns are added and report generates fine.

    "Supplier - Supplier Real Time"."- Income Tax"."Federal Reportable" s_24,
    "Supplier - Supplier Real Time"."- Income Tax"."Supplier Income Tax type" s_25,
    "Supplier - Supplier Real Time"."- Income Tax"."Tax Payer ID" s_26,
    "Supplier - Supplier Real Time"."- Supplier Profile"."Alternate Name" s_27,
    "Supplier - Supplier Real Time"."- Supplier Profile"."Supplier Type" s_28,
    "Supplier - Supplier Real Time"."- Supplier Site Details"."Supplier Account State" s_29,
    DESCRIPTOR_IDOF("Supplier - Supplier Real Time"."- Supplier Profile"."Supplier Type") s_31,

    The error comes only for "Supplier - Supplier Real Time"."- General"."Alternate Site Name".

    Request you to please review and provide the way forward, as this is important for generating my OTBI report.

    Regards,
    Hussain.

    'Publish for Subscription' in OTBI Agent4

    'Publish for Subscription' in OTBI Agent
    Content:

    Hi, can anyone point me to any information on how to best utilise this feature within OTBI agents. Ideally I am looking to establish a way to set an agent to notify recipients when an analysis has been run and data produced but not physically send it as an attachment (due to the inability to password protect the file).  I wondered if the Subscription functionality is the way to do this but I haven't really used it before so am a little unsure of what it's meant to do

    Apologies if this is documented somewhere obvious, I just can't seem to find anything. 

    Many thanks

    Linda

    Hi All,

    We are trying to use the new 19B feature that Oracle has introduced to Compare different revisions of the same item structure. Below is the link to the release readiness doc.

    https://www.oracle.com/webfolder/technetwork/tutorials/tutorial/cloud/r13/wn/pm/releases/19B/19B-scm-pm-wn.htm#F7393

    While trying to run "Expand Structure for Business Intelligence", i don't get any values in LOV in the field "Latest Revision".Attached the screenshot.

    Also we have added the "FBI_PRODUCT_TRANSACTION_ANALYSIS_DUTY" duty to the BI Consumer role...

    Could you please provide your inputs on this please.

     

    Regards,

    Kranthi Bharadwaj.

    Absence Leave Amount & Payroll Element Name1

    Title:
    Absence Leave Amount & Payroll Element Name
    Content:

    Good Day,

    We have been tasked to create a report where anyone who has booked less than a full days leave is highlighted.   This in its self is very easy and achievable.
    But there is a second requirement, the requesting team then want this/these people to only be highlighted if they have a Recurring Element in the "Payroll" - "Element Name" field.

     

    We have tried various different computations and realignments, also going onto Advanced Tab and then to apply sql after the relevant marker has been ticked.   And still no joy.   There are a minimum of 6 subfolders that match the SA's together as well.

     

    It always errors with this "No fact table exists at the requested level of detail"

     

    Any advice please,

    Thank you

    Summary:
    Cannot view data for seeded GL Analytics Dashboards
    Content:

    Hello,

    What security role do I need to access the General Ledger Dashboards: Account Analysis, General Journals, Trial Balance, etc?

    At the moment, I am a super-user, I can see and edit all the objects, but I see no data in any of the reports.

    These are the reports I am trying to access: https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E51367_01/financialsop_gs/OCUAR/F1550150AN11FF9.htm#F716749AN122F4. The BI Publisher reports work without any issues, but the Analytics reports do not show any data.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Thanks!
