BI Publisher (formerly XML Publisher) - Version 11.1.1.6.2 to 11.1.1.7+ [Release 11.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

What web services does BI Publisher support?

Does Oracle Business Intelligence 11.1.1.6.5 offer a web service similar to executeIBotNow?

Is it possible to run a report job on demand via BI Publisher?

For running a report job on demand. We have seen the following options:

 - "resendScheduledReport": What exactly does "resend" mean?
 - "runreport": Would this enable BI Publisher end users to get report layout outputs very quickly as cached data from the previous time the report was run? Can we specify the outputs in the reportOutputPath parameter of "runreport"?

Are any configuration tasks required on the BI Server to expose new SOAP web services for use by xmlpserver/services/v2 ?
