From time to time, you may need to generate additional trace logs when troubleshooting exports to Excel or PDF download requests in Oracle Business Intelligence (OBI/OBIEE) or Oracle Analytics Server (OAS)

This document describes how to enable those logging requests in the JavaHost.


These scenarios could include the debugging of:

  • Printing a Dashboard to PDF.
  • Exporting an Analysis to PDF/Excel.
  • Agent delivery of a Dashboard to PDF |Excel.
  • Agent delivery of an Analysis to PDF | Excel.
    Note: This does not apply to exporting data to CSV from an Answers analysis.

  • Graph or charts

You may need to use this method to check:

  • That the javahost is generating a file.
  • The file size.
  • The input data.
  • A request from Support or Development to provide information.
