Objectives • Describe how to install Discoverer 10g into an existing Oracle E-Business Suite 11i Environment. • Describe how to upgrade an existing Discoverer End User Layer from earlier versions. • Discuss supported architectures for integrating Discoverer 10g with Oracle 11i Environment. • Learn how to load the Application specific contents and workbooks into the Discoverer 10g End User Layer. 3
Overview • Discoverer 10g enables Report Builders and Analysts to create and execute ad hoc queries. • Users can view and navigate through predefined reports and graphs through business views. • Release 11i users can use Discoverer to analyze Data from selected business areas in Financials, Human Resources, Purchasing, Process Manufacturing etc. 4
Supported Architectures • Discoverer 10g must be installed in a separate ORACLE_HOME on an existing application tier node or on a stand-alone server with access to Oracle E- Business Suite 11i database. • Component Name Version OracleAS Identity Management Infrastructure 10.1.2.0.2 OracleAS Business Intelligence and Forms 10.1.2.0.2 Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i 11.5.8 to 11.5.10 5
Supported Architectures • Each one of the above component can be installed on the same machine or each component can be installed on standalone machines. • Each component must be installed under a separate ORACLE_HOME. • For the purpose of this discussion following assumptions have been made: • Database SID: VIS • E-Business Suite Release: 184.108.40.206 • Apps User Name: sysadmin • Infrastructure Release: 10.1.2.0.2 • Business Intelligence and Forms: 10.1.2.0.2 • Operating System: UNIX/Linux 6
Installation Tasks • Install Oracle Application Server 10g Release 2 (10.1.2.0.2) • First install OracleAS Identity Management Infrastructure 10g in a separate ORACLE_HOME • On the Install screen, choose Oracle Application Server Infrastructure 10g. • Next choose Identity Management and Metadata Repository. • Next choose components - Oracle Internet Directory and Single-Sign-On. 7

Post Installation Tasks • The following slides will discuss post installation steps - • For configuring Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i to use Discoverer 10g. • For loading the Application specific contents and workbooks into the Discoverer 10g End User Layer. • Post installation tasks will be performed on Business Intelligence and Forms Node. 19
Post Installation Tasks • Copy Database Connection file • Create the directory $ORACLE_HOME/discoverer/secure. • Copy the dbc file from the $FND_TOP/secure directory of the 11i instance to the $ORACLE_HOME/discoverer/secure directory. • Update tnsnames.ora file • update file $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin/tnsnames.ora and include the tnsnames entry to connect to your Oracle E- Business Suite Release 11i database. • Verify you can establish a connection to your Oracle E- Business Suite Release 11i database using sqlplus. 20
Post Installation Tasks • Migrate your existing Discoverer End User Layers to Discoverer 10.1.2. • If you have an existing Discoverer 4i or Discoverer 9.0.4 End User Layer, upgrade to Discoverer 10.1.2 by using the following command on Business Intelligence and Forms Node. • Use the following command to upgrade the End User Layer $ORACLE_HOME/bin/eulapi -CONNECT EUL_US/EUL_US @VIS - AUTO_UPGRADE 21
Post Installation Tasks • Create new Discoverer 10.1.2 End User Layer • For new installations, you must create a new End User Layer. • Use the following command to create the End User Layer $ORACLE_HOME/bin/eulapi -CREATE_EUL -APPS_MODE -CONNECT system/manager@VIS -USER EUL_US -PASSWORD EUL_US -DEFAULT_TABLESPACE discoverer - TEMPORARY_TABLESPACE temp -EUL_LANGUAGE US - APPS_GRANT_DETAILS apps/apps 22
Post Installation Tasks • Apply necessary Oracle Applications Interoperability patches • You can skip this step if the environment was created using 11.5.10 Rapid Install. • AD patch 3440628 – contains utilities for EUL maintenance. • ICX patch 3133021 – contains support to invoke Discoverer from E-Business Suite functions. • Apply the latest AutoConfig patch. 23
Post Installation Tasks •Set Applications Profile Variable name Value options for Discoverer s_disco_standalone true •Set the following values in the context s_disco_machine <machine.domain> file for AutoConfig. •Run AutoConfig. s_disco_port <port number> s_disco_protocol http | https s_disco_ver_comma 10,1,2 s_disco_eul_prefix EUL 24
Post Installation Tasks • Verify Applications profile options in Oracle Applications • Login to Oracle 11i with System Administrator responsibility. • Navigate to the Profile System. • Query %Discoverer% profile options. 25
