Create ESS Job in fusion for BIP Report

In Fusion applications ESS jobs can be run on demand and as per schedules. These jobs are analogous to concurrent programs in Oracle EBS applications. There are many ESS jobs that are delivered as part of Fusion applications, and users can also create and run ESS jobs. The best part of ESS jobs in fusion is that they can be created very quickly following simple steps. In this post let me consider running a Cloud BI report that was already created by me. The reason behind considering Cloud BI report is that these reports are supported on many different kinds of data sources, for instance they are supported with JDBC, JNDI, File, LDAP, OLAP, Web Services and HTTP. The blog post Create datasource on webservice in Oracle BI Cloud details about creation of data source based on a webservice. ESS job can be created by following below sequential steps.

Figure 1 Process flow to create an ESS job in Fusion Application

  1. Navigate to Setup and Maintenance

  1. Search for Manage Custom Enterprise Scheduler Jobs for {application name}

    For example, search with Manage Custom Enterprise Scheduler Jobs for Financial Common Applications

  2. Click on Go to Task column.

  1. Click on Create button to navigate to create ESS job page

  2. Enter Display Name, Name, path, Job application name. Select Job Type as BIPJobType. Provide report ID. To get the report ID, go to BI Publisher and place the report under /Shared Folders/ folder. You can keep it in any folder or it’s subfolders. Copy the part after /Shared Folders/ till .xdo

  3. Under parameters section click on create button, and enter parameters. Save and close the popup. Save and close the ESS Job page as well.

  4. Now you can run the job. Navigate to Scheduled Processes.

  1. Click on Schedule New Process. Select the job just created, enter input parameters and submit the job.

  2. Check the status of the job and analyze the output and log files.

      There are no document for naming conventions as such, but you can follow the naming conventions used for Oracle RICEW components. In this case you can use the one used for CPs. The other way is to use global coding development standards. For example any entity name would be of type Camel case and parameters start with small case followed by Camel case. Good practice is to have the customer short name prefixed.

      Hi Prabha,

      Yes you can map the ESS job parameters to BIP report parameters. In this post the Country parameter value is mapped to the BIP report input parameter CountryName. In turn generates a report with list of cities in the country. Basically I have create a report based on a data source, and used method GetCitiesByCountry. For your reference, you can have a look at the other blog where I have discussed data source creation using web service.

        Hi Uday,
        Thanks for your response. We have enabled bursting in our report. The report has 4 parameters. I want to create an ESS job which will pick value from those parameters to enable condition based bursting. I am not sure about web services as we are working with reports and their datamodels. Can you suggest how can we link the report parameters in job or vice a versa as I do not see in the above blog how countryname is linked with the report. 🙁

    Hi Uday,
    I am also looking for creating an ESS job which will call two jobs directly. I have created two individual jobs which will schedule my reports when called.
    Now i want to create a job set using them. If there is any blog/possibility on that, it would be very helpful.

    Spot on with this write-up, I really suppose this website needs much more consideration. I’ll probably be again to learn far more, thanks for that info.

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a
    little bit, but other than that, this is excellent blog.
    A great read. I’ll definitely be back.

    Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? Thanks
