How To Migrate BI Publisher Reports From On-Prem Instance Business Intelligence Publisher (BIP) To Cloud (Doc ID 2810154.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 02, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Transportation Management Cloud Service - Version 21.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Currently on our on-prem BIP we use the download/upload feature in BIP to migrate reports from one instance to another. When downloading, it would create a .xdmz and .xdoz file which we would then upload to the target BIP instance.

In Cloud BIP, these download/upload options are not available like in on-prem. It states in the Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher guide that:

"If BI Publisher is integrated with the Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition, then use the archive and unarchive features of the Oracle BI Presentation Catalog to perform this function"

It seems that the archive feature replaced download/upload in the OBIEE integrated version of BIP. The issue is in the on-prem BI Publisher version, it is NOT integrated with OBIEE so there is no archive function. While on the cloud BIP instance, the archiving option is available.

Please advise on how we can migrate reports from a non-OBIEE integrated instance of BIP to our new integrated instance on cloud.
