4. Scheduling OBIEE Reports with CRON

In this post by Shwetank Sheel, he says “I recently got a request from a colleague to help them with scheduling some reports for delivery, with the destination being a unix machine folder. I am aware that iBots can call a Java Program to write to a disk, and that BI Publisher’s scheduling engine can directly write to the disk, but I did not want to delve into any large lines of code nor even use the OBIEE scheduling. I wanted to see how I can make it a purely pull job from the unix machine side. To this end, I wrote a shell script to accomplish this.”

See the blog for this script.

5. Basic Understanding of OBIEE Report vs BI Publisher report.

In this blog, Bojie says that BI Publisher was originally a different application, which is now part of OBIEE. The best way to put it is, BI Publisher is another technology that has been integrated with OBIEE, so now the two are both parts of Oracle Business Intelligence. He then goes on to explain the difference between the two of them.
