Unable to Connect BRM DB Using Service Name (Using Public Webservice) (Doc ID 1473483.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 15, 2024

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version to [Release 7.5.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


One user has a Billing Revenue Management (BRM) 7.5 system with Business Intelligence Publisher (BIP) and Real Application Cluster (RAC) Cluster but no Security Identifier (SID) defined.

It seems to be a limitation of BIP server to connect Database (DB) using Service Name (Example: <HOSTNAME>) as BIP connection is using a configuration file which has a property supported only for SID.

Errors with different Connect strings:

The connection is established successfully using Service Instance instead of Service Name. However, this is a workaround and may not be acceptable.
