BI Publisher Reports Disappear from Catalog When Using Swedish Characters Å Ä Ö in Filename

(Doc ID 2401170.1)

Last updated on JULY 06, 2018

Applies to:

BI Publisher (formerly XML Publisher) - Version 12c and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Customer is using Oracle Solaris Operating System.

Symptoms

When trying to set up a new BI Publisher server version 12c ( 12.2.1.3.0) and moving reports and datamodels from an older 11g server, all reports and data models containing Å Ä Ö characters are not visible in BI Publisher's Catalog.
Also if the report is being renamed to contain ÅÄÖ characters it will disappear on save.

To make it visible again one must remove the Å Ä Ö characters from the report's name.

Attempting to create a new report using the character is showing the same behavior.
