OIC - Schedule BI Publisher Report through OIC | Oracle Integration Cloud | Schdule report Service

Here, we will see how to call a schedule BI publisher report service( with BI bursring to FTP).

When to use Run Report operation:

  • In Laymen term, use Run report operation if report output size is less than 10MB. 
  • Run report operation will provide the report output in the webservice response.

When to use Schedule Report operation:

  • Use "Schedule Report" operation when report output is > 10MB. 
  • Schedule report will generate the report output in FTP, UCM, Email etc. Which is known as BI report bursting.
High level steps:
  1. Create a Schedule service Soap connection
  2. Take a Schedule orchestration integration and call Schedulw service operation and map all the required patameters 
  3. Take a while loop and call getScheduledReportStatus operation to get the BI run status
  4. You should have a BI report with Bursting data model option, here we are bursting the report to FTP delivery.

Implementation steps:

Create Schedule service SOAP connection

Integration flow:

Create a Scheduled Orchestration Integration

Provide a name and package

Select the created Soap connection for schedule report service.

Configure the Schedule service operation.

Now open the mapper and the map the required parameters name and its values.

Below Columns mappings are required to invoke Schedule BI report operation.

I have provided the following details:

attributeTemplate : "pdf"
name: "p_destination"
Values item: " FTP full path"
reportAbsolutePath: "/Custom/Integrations/Poc/XXSupplierREP1.xdo"
sizeOfDataChunkDownload: "-1"
scheduleBurstingOption: "true"
userJobDesc: ns2:getFlowId()
userJobName: ns2:getFlowId()
userId: ERP Service account user
password: ERP Service account pwd


Next, we will assign counter and loop till we get the GetScheduledReportstatus and then update the counter.

Add tracking


Test and see the outcome.

To create a BI Bursting report and data model, follow my blog:

You can also use below ScheduleReport service but you can only call the schedule service, there is not "getScheduledReportStatus" operation available.

  1. Hi Sanddy,

    Can you explain that why we need to put a loop around to get schedule report status.

    1. Hi Ankur, we need loop bacause sometimes the the schedule process takes time to complete the delivery, so looping means waiting for the process to complete it either succeeded or failed or warning. If we dont use loop, in one run we may get wrong status.
