Symptoms

1. After enabling https on Siebel side, reports functionality stopped working

2. Then found the document "BI Publisher Reports Failing When WSDL and Web Service End Point Use HTTPS (Doc ID 1326291.1)" which says to import the SSL certificates from the Siebel Web Server(s) need to be imported in the Java         keystore located on the BIP server.
