BIP Bursting Job To FTP Errors: File Cannot Be Opened For Writing (Doc ID 2832976.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 14, 2023

Applies to:

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


Created a ESS bursting job to send the text file to a FTP location for processing.

The process always ends in error with the message:

[DELIVERY_ID=-1] Delivery is completed [INSTANCE_ID=bip.bi_server1]
[FTPProcessor]Delivery to SFTP completed with failure File cannot be opened for writing.


However the output file is delivered successfully to the configured FTP location. Thus the user is never sure if the process worked or not.

This issue does not occur in Test, but does occur in Production.


 New BI Publisher Bursting Query that sends the output file to the FTP server.
