EM 12.1.0.4 and BI Publisher Configuration

This document explains how to configure BI Publisher in Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12.1.0.4.0. Before the 12.1.0.4, the BI Publisher installation was fastidious, it was necessary to download, install and configure it. In Enterprise Manager 12.1.0.4 BI Publisher is already packaged.

After a fresh installation or an upgrade to 12.1.0.4, BI publisher is installed but not configured. By selecting the BI publisher report menu, the following message will be displayed:

 

bi01

 

You can follow the Integrating BI publisher link to the Oracle documentation in order to configure it. Let me show you how to realize it.

You have to be in the OMS environment and run configureBIP:

[email protected]:/u01/app/oracle/MiddleWare_12cR4/oms/bin/ [oms12c] configureBIP
Configuring BI Publisher Version "11.1.1.7.0" to work with Enterprise Manager
Logging started at /u01/app/oracle/MiddleWare_12cR4/oms/cfgtoollogs/bip/bipca_20141201132420.log.
Before this command is run, a backup of Enterprise Manager should be performed using the :emctl exportconfig oms: command. Have you made a valid backup of Enterprise Manager (yes/no) [no] ? no
After the backup is complete, run this command again.

 

You have to save you OMS configuration before, you run the following command:

[email protected]:/u01/app/oracle/MiddleWare_12cR4/oms/bin/ [oms12c] emctl exportconfig oms
