We have successfully integrated Oracle BI 11g with Oracle eBS R12. We log into Oracle BI 11g via Oracle eBS R12. One of the additional requirements is to have a Log out Link in Oracle BI 11g which takes us back to Oracle eBS R12. Therefor we have added the following to our instanceconfig.xml
<!--Adding Logout Link--> <SchemaExtensions> <Schema name="EBS-ICX" logonURL="http://<Oracle eBS R12 Server:port>/OA_HTML/OA.jsp?OAFunc=OAHOMEPAGE" logoffURL="http://<Oracle eBS R12 Server:port>/OA_HTML/OA.jsp?OAFunc=OAHOMEPAGE"/> </SchemaExtensions> <!--Adding Logout Link-->
This works like expected, but every time we do a restart of the BI service, the instanceconfig.xml get’s backed up and replaced a ‘new’ instanceconfig.xml, without the Log out Link.
This ‘problem’ is related to the following BUG; 14249563 on My Oracle Support. The good news is that it will be fixed in 188.8.131.52. The bad news is that at present the only workaround is to manually re-set the link.
