R11i/R12 Potential Workaround For Publishing XML Reports When The OPP (Output Post-Processor) Fails (Doc ID 858132.1)

Last updated on JUNE 24, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle General Ledger - Version 11.5.10.0 to 12.1 [Release 11.5.10 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Trying to publish an XML report and it fails with an error in the Concurrent Process log such as :-

==========
Post-processing of request <Request Id> failed at <Date and Time> with the error message:
The Output Post-processor is running but has not picked up this request.
No further attempts will be made to post-process this request, and the request will be marked
with Warning status.
Setting the profile option Concurrent: OPP Response Timeout to a higher value may be necessary.
==========

The OPP (Output Post-processor) cannot not be restarted easily and the report has to be published.

This is a possible workaround - success cannot be guaranteed but it works for certain types of errors.
