When trying to access Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher (BIP) Report directly providing Report Name, UserName and Password in Oracle BI Publisher (e.g. http://<BIP_Hostname>:<port#>/xmlpserver/Report_1.xdo?id=XXXXX&passwd=YYYYY&_xmode=2) the error below occurs:

Error 405--Method Not Allowed
From RFC 2068 Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1:
10.4.6 405 Method Not Allowed
The method specified in the Request-Line is not allowed for the resource identified by the Request-URI. The response MUST include an Allow header containing a list of valid methods for the requested resource.

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

1. Get a Report Name - eg: Report_1
2. Build the URL as: http://<BIP_Hostname>:<port#>/xmlpserver/Report_1.xdo?id=XXXXX&passwd=YYYYY&_xmode=2
3. Error 405 occurs
