E-BI/XMLP: BI/XML Publisher Temporary Folders Are Not Removed By The Distribution Or Purge Process (Doc ID 662636.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 01, 2022

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.48 to 8.50 [Release 8.4]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Each BI Publisher, (XML Publisher), report run via the Process Scheduler produces a folder under PS_HOME\APPSERV\PRCS\<domain>\files\XMLP. After the report is posted, the folder remains. These folders are not removed by the distribution process or by the automatic purge, resulting in the accumulation of empty folders under the PS_HOME\APPSERV\PRCS\<domain>\files\XMLP directory.

Steps to Reproduce:
1) Navigate to ReportingTools > XMLP> Query Report Scheduler.
2) Submit the XRFWIN XMLP report -- runs the report under AE program PSXPQRYRPT.
3) Navigate to Peopletools > Process Scheduler > System Process Requests.
4) Submit the XRFWIN XMLP report -- runs the AE XRFWIN process.
5) Navigate in Windows Explorer to PS_HOME\appserv\prcs\<domain>\files\XMLP\.
6) Observe the addition of 2 temporary directories, one for each of the 2 submissions.
8) Observe that these 2 temporary directories are not deleted.
