OBIEE 11g/12c: How to create catalog reports only for specific report/folder path in an text file (Doc ID 2178283.1)

Last updated on JULY 11, 2017

Applies to:

Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition - Version 11.1.1.7.140415 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

On Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE), 11g/12c

When one uses "File having list of Folders to report on" option in Catalog Manager the catalog folder to report on is already selected i.e. by default root(/)

Hence this will never work because either one should use "File having list of Folders to report on" option or direct selecting a catalog "Folder" to create a catalog report.

Both options are not expected to work together as this is as per design.

One can however use command line script to generate the catalog report because there one can select only one option i.e. either selecting "Folder" or "File having list of Folders to report on".

 Is there an option in catalog manager/command line to create catalog reports only for specific report/folder path?
