Last updated on NOVEMBER 09, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Reports Developer - Version to [Release 12c to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


 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>] [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.  


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.
