BI Publisher Scheduler Will Not Start Until Status Is Checked (Doc ID 2128260.1)

Last updated on APRIL 25, 2016

Applies to:

BI Publisher (formerly XML Publisher) - Version 11.1.1.7.0 to 11.1.1.7.x [Release 11.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On OBIEE-BIP 11.1.1.7.0,
when restarting OBIEE components, BI Publisher scheduler will not start until the user visits the job history page. Restarts are done nearly every day so this is a very inconvenient workaround.

If the page is not visited, then all existing jobs will queue up and not start until after the history page is visited, and then all pending jobs will start. 50% of the time they'll finish at that point but occasionally there are too many queued up and they fail.
