After 20C Cannot Disable OTBI Metadata Dependent Extract Mode For Some Data Stores (Doc ID 2719746.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 08, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Fusion Inventory Management Cloud Service - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


As documented in 20C Cloud Readiness / Oracle Common Technologies and User Experience > What's New > OTBI Metadata Independent Mode for Extraction :

In Update 19C, Oracle introduced the new OTBI Metadata Independent Extract mode in BICC. With this improved mode, data stores (BI view objects or BIVOs) can be extracted independently of metadata, thus making it easier to extract data from Oracle Fusion Applications. In addition, the new mode ensures that even if changes are made to BIVOs in the OTBI repository, current BICC data extracts will not be impacted.
In Update 20C, Oracle will update all BIVOs to the OTBI Metadata Independent extract mode. Therefore, if you use BICC to extract data from Oracle Fusion Applications, you must transition to the new mode prior to Update 20C.


Per the above documentation, after 20C Custom VOs should be in Metadata Independent Mode and user will not have an option to change the mode.

However, some customers have reported that after 20C, some BICC Data Stores still show OTBI Metadata Dependent extract selected.
Customer have reported that when editing the Data Store, the option to update the Dependent mode isn't available or is greyed out.



Upgrade to 20C
