When attempting to execute the Siebel report only with PDF output format, the following error occurs.

ObjMgrBusServiceLog Error 1 0000074256fa8561:0 2016-03-30 01:08:21 (outdisp.cpp (260)) SBL-EAI-04308: Operation 'runReport' of Web Service '<INSTANCE>/service/v11/PublicReportService.PublicReportServiceService' at port 'PublicReportService_v11' failed with the following explanation: "oracle.xdo.webservice.exception.OperationFailedException: PublicReportService::generateReport for reportAbsolutePath [/<FOLDER>/<REPORTNAME>.xdo] failed: due to Invalid format requested: pdf".

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Edit the report from xmlpserver URL and uncheck all the output formats except 'PDF' format. Save the changes.
2. This makes pdf outupt as default format automatically.
3. Execute the report from Siebel and observe that the report errored out.

Above mention error appears in the XMLPReportServer log file.
