New to BI Publisher



I created a RTF template and uploaded to JDE via XML Publisher Object (P95600). I also created a source UBE, and report definition (P95620) and associated the template to the report definition.

When I submitted the RD, only the XML was created in print queue. With the XML data that was created by JDE, I validated and previewed the template in PDF using template builder. Everything came OK.

Could someone please help on how to produce the PDFs in the print queue? I am on E900.

Thanks in advance.



Hi, Where you run? On LOCAL or server?
When LOCAL, then it is OK. Local do not generate PDF output. Only XML.

When server then check:
- View RD Jobs (2 option before Vieew RD Source)
- Check teplate start date
- When you run on older Tools release then you should move XMLP object and RDefinition to the environment setuped as primary. Best way is OMW. (again check there start date for XMLP template)


What were you trying to send to BI Publisher? Some objects need their versions built with the RD for them to work. The two main ones that I know of are Expense Reports (R09E116) and Check/EFT Advices (R04572*).

The reason is that these are submitted from calling programs. All others you should be able to get output by using the Submit on the RD.
