RPD Deployment in OBIEE-12c server

RPD Deployment in Obiee 12c server is unlikely different from 11g. In 12c, EM does not have any option for deployments of rpd.We should be using weblogic scripting command “uploadrpd’ to upload repository to Oracle BI Server.

Steps to follow:

  1. Open the command prompt and type “cd \”to change the directory and press Enter
  2. Type “cd /user_projects/domains/bi/bitools/bin”, press Enter
  3. Do “Ls”, to find the utility, data-model-cmd.sh on UNIX and data-model-cmd.cmd on Windows.
  4. Run the data-model-cmd.cmd utility along with the upload rpd parameters below:

Syntax:
uploadrpd -I .rpd -W -U -P -SI

Example:
uploadrpd -I BI1_SAMPLE.rpd -W Ora234 -U weblogic -P weblogic17-SI ssi

If the operation completes successfully, you will see the following message:

“Operation Successful. RPD upload completed successfully. ”

To understand further these parameters, see below. Along with above parameters, yiu can also use S, N, SSL etc.

  • I specifies the name of the repository that you want to upload.
  • W is the repository’s password. If you do not supply the password, then you will be prompted for the password when the command is run. For security purposes, Oracle recommends that you include a password in the command only if you are using automated scripting to run the command.
  • SI specifies the name of the service instance.
  • U specifies a valid user’s name to be used for Oracle BI EE authentication.
  • P specifies the password corresponding to the user’s name that you specified for U. If you do not supply the password, then you will be prompted for the password when the command is run. For security purposes, Oracle recommends that you include a password in the command only if you are using automated scripting to run the command.
  • S specifies the Oracle BI EE host name. Only include this option when you are running the command from a client installation.
  • N specifies the Oracle BI EE port number. Only include this option when you are running the command from a client installation.
  • SSL specifies to use SSL to connect to the WebLogic Server to run the command. Only include this option when you are running the command from a client installation.
  • H displays the usage information and exits the command.

Example: data-model-cmd.sh uploadrpd -I <RepositoryName.rpd> -SI ssi -U weblogic -S server.example.com -N 8003 -SSL
