An Oracle blog about BI Publisher

Oracle BI Publisher is available !!!

Hi Everyone,

I am happy to announce that Oracle BI Publisher is released, although I admit that this is almost a week old news now and I am sure some of you may have already known this by now from the BI Publisher homepage in OTN or from other sources. My sincere apologies for the delay here.

Thank you Tim for helping me to get back into this blog membership and being patient to allow me put this word out. My activity in the blog has been so less in the past that I am as good as a new member here. When I tried to login last week, I was greeted with this message -

"Sorry, you do not have the privileges necessary to access the page
you requested.
This system is available to Oracle Employees only. Oracle Employees who would like to request a blog account should
click here."

So I had to start all over and get a fresh access created. Thanks to Tim and Phil from IT support for helping me with this. I will now make sure to use this space more often and share more features, tips and tricks.

Oracle BI Publisher was GA on May 19th and you can get the download, documentation, certification matrix and release notes here at the BI Publisher home page in OTN. Here is a quick snapshot of new features in this release. The download is also available at Oracle Software Delivery Cloud site. The documentation page has also been given a fresh new structure where in the left navigation you will notice "Task" and "Books" as two menu items. The task will provide quick reference to role based activities under different sub menu items such as "View & Publish", "Design Reports" etc. The "Books" menu will take you to the complete set of books. You can select Administrator's guide, or Developer's guide, Data Modelling Guide, Report Designer's guide and User's Guide for BI Publisher here. If you are looking for any feature, and do not find information under "Tasks" then check for the same under "Books" or use the search option.

Stay tuned for more updates on new features. Wish you have a good time exploring the new features!!

    Does the Word template addin now support MS Word 2013 ? The earlier releases did not have this support.

    @Ranjith, the MS Word 2013 certification for BI Publisher will be included in upcoming patches.

    How about excel 2013 support? I'd especially like to be able to export more than 65,000 records!
