OIC ERP About BI Bursting

 About Bursting

  • Bursting is a process of splitting data into blocks, generating documents for each block, and delivering the documents to one or more destinations.
  •  The data for the report is generated by executing a query once and then splitting the data based on a "Key" value. For each block of the data, a separate document is generated and delivered.
  • Using BI Publisher's bursting feature you can split a single report based on an element in the data model and deliver the report based on a second element in the data model.
  •  Driven by the delivery element, you can apply a different template, output format, delivery method, and locale to each split segment of your report. Example implementations include:
• Invoice generation and delivery based on customer-specific layouts and delivery preference

• Financial reporting to generate a master report of all cost centers, splitting out individual cost center reports to the appropriate manager

• Generation of pay slips to all employees based on one extract and delivered via e-mail

What is the Bursting Definition?

A bursting definition is a component of the data model. After you have defined the data sets for the data model, you can set up one or more bursting definitions. When you set up a bursting definition, you define the following:
  • The Split By element is an element from the data that will govern how the data is split. For example, to split a batch of invoices by each invoice, you may use an element called CUSTOMER_ID. The data set must be sorted or grouped by this element.
  • The Deliver By element is the element from the data that will govern how formatting and delivery options are applied. In the invoice example, it is likely that each invoice will have delivery criteria determined by customer, therefore the Deliver By element may also be CUSTOMER_ID.
  • The Delivery Query is a SQL query that you define for BI Publisher to construct the delivery XML data file. The query must return the formatting and delivery details.
Defining the Query for the Delivery XML

The bursting query is a SQL query that you define to provide BI Publisher with the required information to format and deliver the report. BI Publisher uses the results from the bursting query to create the delivery XML.

The BI Publisher bursting engine uses the delivery XML as a mapping table for each Deliver By element. The structure of the delivery XML required by BI Publisher is as follows:



• KEY is the Delivery key and must match the Deliver By element. The bursting engine uses the key to link delivery criteria to a specific section of the burst data.

• TEMPLATE - is the name of the Layout to apply. Note that the value is the Layout name (for example, 'Customer Invoice'), not the template file name (for example, invoice.rtf).

• LOCALE - is the template locale, for example, 'en-US'.

• OUTPUT_FORMAT - is the output format. For a description of each type, see Setting the Output Types. Valid values are: HTML, PDFZ - zipped PDF, PDF, RTF, EXCEL, EXCEL2000, MHTM, PPT, PPTX - PowerPoint 2007, XSLFO, XML, CSV, ETEXT

• SAVE_OUTPUT - indicates whether to save the output documents to BI Publisher history tables that the output can be viewed and downloaded from the Report Job History page.

Valid values are 'true' (default) and 'false'. If this property is not set, the output will be saved.

DEL_CHANNEL - is the delivery method. Valid values are:
  • FAX
  • FILE
  • FTP
