How to increase the HTTPSleepTime for the Siebel Reports Integration With Oracle BI Publisher (Doc ID 859193.1)

Last updated on MAY 10, 2016

Applies to:

Siebel Reports - Version 8.1.1 [21112] and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The integration to Oracle BI Publisher uses an Outbound Web Service call, invoking the PublicReportService web service on the Oracle BI Publisher server.

Siebel Outbound Web Services use the "EAI HTTP Transport" business service for sending the HTTP request.

The "EAI HTTP Transport" business service has a parameter called HTTPSleepTime ,which controls how long the business service waits for a response for the webserver. HTTPSleepTime defaults to 120000 milliseconds (2 minutes).

If the generation of the Oracle BI Publisher report, takes over 2 minutes, then an error will occur as a result of the timeout. This may occur in the case of very large and complex reports.

In the XMLPReportServer*.log file the following error message will be displayed:

SBL-EAI-04311: Operation 'runReport' is expecting a response but no response was received.
