(Doc ID 1604428.1)

Last updated on MAY 17, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Exalytics Software - Version 1.0.0.0.0 and later
Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition - Version 11.1.1.7.1 to 11.1.1.9.170418 [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) 11g and BI Publisher are being used on an Exalytics server.  In this environment, BI Publisher report bursting is used to automatically export reports to Excel format and save them to a location on the the Exalytics server.  There is no direct method for users to access these files without using FTP and connecting to the Exalytics server. 

Is there any way to access these report files from the OBIEE front end using some feature or functionality available in the system?
