REP-69 REP-56133 Errors When Trying to Run Reports With DESTYPE=FILE in Reports 12c (Doc ID 2070662.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 24, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Reports Developer - Version 12.2.1.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

 Trying to run reports using DESTYPE=FILE in Reports 12c shows the following errors:  

REP-69: An internal error occurred
REP-56133: Access is denied to write to the specified location

rwserver_diagnostic.log shows the following message:  

[2015-09-30T21:54:02.715+01:00] [WLS_REPORTS] [ERROR] [] [oracle.reports.server] [tid: 152] [userId: <anonymous>] [ecid: 0000L0W27NFCgo2_vpT4iX1M34jQ000002,0:1:3] [APP: reports] [partition-name: DOMAIN] [tenant-name: GLOBAL] SecurityHelper:start Writeable folders not configured. Output destination to 'File' will fail.

 Same reports work fine in Reports 11g.  

Changes

Starting with Reports 12c, the reports servers are writable folder secured out-of-the-box.  This means that in order to use the DESTYPE=FILE parameter, the reports server needs to have defined which folders can be used to write reports output to before using them.
