    Title:
    BI Publisher Excel - How to get multiple horizontal repeating groups working?
    Content:

    Hello There,

    I would like to know how can I get the below output using BI Publisher for Excel.

    I have three groups in the xml file.

    G_1  ->  G_2 ->  G_3

    Below expected output:

    G_1 G_2 G_3
    Segment1 Creation_Date Line_Num Item_ID Quantity_Ordered Quantity_Delivered
    10001008 08 11 2019 10 300000013603844 200 100
        20 300000013612944 300 200
        30 300000013615636 10 5
        40 300000013626474 20 1
        50 300000013676169 2 2
    10001009 22 11 2019 10 300000014432708 11 11
        20 300000014437123 25 25
        30 300000014434715 6 6
               

     

    The output I am getting now is as below:

    G_1 G_2 G_3
    Segment1 Creation_Date Line_Num Item_ID Quantity_Ordered Quantity_Delivered
    10001008" rowMark="2 2019-11-08T04:35:17.000+00:00" rowMark="2 10" rowMark="3 300000013603844" rowMark="3 200 100

        30" rowMark="3 300000014434715" rowMark="3 6 6
             

     

    Please find attached the sample xml, output and the excel template file for your reference.

    ORA-03113: end-of-file on communication channel error - Please Help
    Content:

    Hi All,


    In last few months, for the second time we are facing one quite strange issue. Random users, with random reports (or some user with all reports) are facing following error message and code:

    We had technical SR (3-20715306161) where we bounce the server at one point of time which still didnt fix the issue. Issue was gone after 3,4 days.

    State: HY000. Code: 10058. [NQODBC] [SQL_STATE: HY000] [nQSError: 10058] A general error has occurred. (HY000)

    State: HY000. Code: 43113. [nQSError: 43113] Message returned from OBIS. (HY000)

    State: HY000. Code: 43119. [nQSError: 43119] Query Failed: (HY000)

    State: HY000. Code: 17001. [nQSError: 17001] Oracle Error code: 3113, message: ORA-03113: end-of-file on communication channel Process ID: 246507 Session ID: 6224 Serial number: 29851 at OCI call OCIStmtExecute: BEGIN fnd_session_mgmt.attach_session('9861821953AF9216E0534C8D630A8F6D'); END;. (HY000)

    State: HY000. Code: 17011. [nQSError: 17011] SQL statement execution failed. (HY000)

     

    Now we are having the same problem, it does impact less people  accross the globe (Germany, UK, Singapore) than the previous time, but at still reports are erroring quite randomley and also some users cannot run any. Clearing cache/ logging in out does not solve a problem.


    Users on the front end are just sseeing error - Please contact your system Adminsitrator where back in the logs we are seeing the error from above.

    Did anyone face similar issue in the past or at the moment and are there are any recommendation/ ideas how to solve it and what could be the rootcause?


    Regards,
    Janko

    The folder is empty.

    A duty role exists for it, BI_EXT_REPORTING_DUTY, but unlike the other folders, the permissions on this folder have not been updated so that only people with that role see this folder.

    Convert Date FieldAnswered2

    Title:
    Convert Date Field
    Summary:
    Convert from MM/DD/YYYY to YYYY-Qx
    Content:

    Hello,

    I have a date field I want to convert. I want to convert that from MM/DD/YYY to "YYYY-Qx". Any thoughts on how to do this? I've tried using the Calendar functions in the formula. They work, but don't get me the exact above format. I have to use two separate columns. One gets the quarter number so, in the example above, it would just say "1". The other column I'm able to get the year "2020". When I try do a Concat in the 3rd column, I get syntax error b/c I think it doesn't like to concatenate formulas apparently. Any help would be appreciated. 

    Thanks,

    Stephanie

    BI Scheduled Report Job and Daylight Savings Time15.0

    Title:
    BI Scheduled Report Job and Daylight Savings Time
    Summary:
    We had a scheduled that ran an hour early after daylight savings time ended
    Content:

    There is a scheduled report job that runs at 5:30am each wednesday.  With daylight savings time ending this past weekend, the job ran at 4:30am instead of 5:30am.  The schedule was set up to run at 5:30 Eastern Time, but it doesn't say EST/EDT.  I did update the start date to next week in an effort to get it to run back at 530am but wasn't sure if anyone had any advise to ensure that the system runs this at the same time no matter daylight savings time.

    This report is based off of an HCM extract in the system, and that process worked as expected with the daylight savings time change, only BI had the issue.

    Trailing Spaces in OBIEE2

    Title:
    Trailing Spaces in OBIEE
    Summary:
    formatting question
    Content:
    Hello! I am hoping to poll the community regarding some OBIEE formatting i'm trying to accomplish.

    I have a report where I need to create trailing spaces and have fixed character length columns. I have leveraged casting as VARCHAR, overriding the default value to plain text (don't break spaces) and using the prefix in the advanced tab of

    SET VARIABLE DISABLE_RIGHTTRIM_FOR_VARCHAR=1,

    DISABLE_RIGHTTRIM_ON_LENGTH_FOR_VARCHAR=1;

    I'm still not getting the results I am expecting. When I export it no matter the file type, its still trimmed and the trailing spaces are gone.

    Do you know what I am doing wrong?

    I really appreciate any advice! I haven't had much luck with the knowledge database and using on site resources to get this figured out.
     
    The specificity of this formatting is due to a file we are sending off to a vendor where they have fixed character length columns included in the requirements.

    Thanks!

    Future Dated Activities1
    Topic posted September 17, 2019 by Stephanie GottSilver Medal: 2,000+ Points, tagged Analyses, OBI Answers, OBIEE Answers, OTBI 
    Title:
    Future Dated Activities
    Summary:
    Show me only the Opportunities that don't have a future dated activity added
    Content:

    Hello,

    I'm struggling to think through how to do this. Here is the business problem we are trying to solve: We want our sales people to always have at least one activity tied to the opportunity that has a date in the future. They can have many activities on an opportunity with dates in the past, dates in the future, or no date at all. I would like to show my sales leaders the opportunities that don't have a future activity at all or is blank. Here is what I've tried so far: 

    CASE WHEN "Activity"."Due Date"> Current_Date then COUNT(DISTINCT "Sales - CRM Pipeline"."Pipeline Facts"."# of Opportunities") else 0 end

    When I do this and the sales leaders filter on just the '0', they may be looking at opportunities that actually do have future dated activities on them (because remember, you can have many activities to one opportunity). 

    I've also tried creating an analysis that shows me all of the opportunities that do have a future dated activity and then using that as a filter on another analysis where the opportunity ID does not equal one on that list. That doesn't seem to be working either because the seller may have opportunities with past or current date that won't show on that list because they also have a future date. Does that make sense? 

    Basically, if you can't tell, I might just need help thinking through the best solution to this. I've spent hours on this and I fear the answer is very simple and right in front of my face but I can't seem to grasp it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

    Thank you, 

    Stephanie

    Get privilege to issue logical SQL in OTBIAnswered21.0

    Get privilege to issue logical SQL in OTBI
    Summary:
    As a developer i need to "Issue SQL" /analytics/saw.dll?issuerawsql to query using logical sql metadata repository database (rpd) with log level 2 then view log for diagnostics like physical sql
    Content:

    Hi,

    Does anyone know if in Oracle Cloud Application, we are oracle cloud application 19B(11.13.19.04.0) with oracle business intelligence 11g (11.1.1.9.0), does a role exist that has been granted privilege "Admin:General"/"Issue SQL Directly" by person with bi administration privileges who went to the Administration menu then the page "Manage Privileges" to assign that privilege to a role. Our development team who are writing extensions using oracle transaction business intelligence (OTBI) real time subject areas, to be productive, need the ability to issue logical sql, view results with the log level set > 0, then view the log file with rich diagnostics like timings and row counts and the actual physical sql. To achieve this on onpremise projects the administrator had granted the above role to developers. We assume that the bi administrator role is not allowed to be granted in cloud therefore we can not set this up ourselves. In Navigator/Tools/Security Console I have assigned the following roles "BI Consumer Role", "BI Platform Author Role", "BI Publisher Data Model" and even "BI Platform Repository Manager" and "Business Intelligence Content Administrator" but none of these give me the "Administration" menu in /analytis/ nor the ability just to go to "issue sql" saw.dll?issuerawsql or even "Manage Sessions" saw.dll?sessions. Thanks, Nathan
