Why Are Custom Reports Running Fine After Upgrade to 6.4.1 Even Though the Embedded BIPublisher Has Been Removed? (Doc ID 2136338.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 13, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Transportation Management - Version 6.4.1 to 6.4.1 [Release 6.4]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal


After upgrading to OTM Version 6.4.1, reports are still able to run and view without installing a Stand Alone version of OBIEE. According to the following documentation, a Stand Alone BIPublisher is required. Why are these reports running fine without this?

6.4.1 Release Notes - In OTM 6.4 the embedded BIPublisher has been removed. You will need to install a stand-alone instance of BIPublisher instance, migrate reports from BIPublisher 10g to BIPublisher 11g
(<Note 2121359.1> - Logistics Cloud Update Bundle Documents)

 

The Oracle Transportation Management and Global Trade Management license includes a restricted use license for installing and running Oracle BIPublisher. The restriction limits the use of BIPublisher to reporting on data retrieved from data created by Oracle Transportation Management and Global Trade Management.
