There are three ways, JDE users can use the BI Publisher
- Embedded BI Publisher Reporting
- BI Publisher Reporting with JD Edwards Data Access Driver
- EnterpriseOne One View Reporting
Embedded BI Publisher Reporting
Embedded BI Publisher reporting is driven by a JD Edwards EnterpriseOne batch application (UBE)
When to use Embedded BI Publisher Reporting
The report needs to update, insert, or delete JD Edwards EnterpriseOne data.
Examples of report processes that update JD Edwards EnterpriseOne data are: updating the product shipped date, advancing the sales order status, and updating the statement print date.
The report needs to perform JD Edwards Enterprise One business logic.
Examples of business logic include: determining the correct pricing for a product, computing an employee's salary or benefits, and calculating commissions for sales staff.

Creating a Embedded BI Publisher Report…
- Report definitions specify the information that BI Publisher requires to process and deliver output.
The details in a report definition include:
- The UBE and optional version to use as the source of data
- Associated templates, transformations, and localizations
- Output types
- Language options
- Bursting options
- Delivery options
Creating customized reports using BI Publisher involves these steps:
Step 1 – Use Oracle’s BI Publisher Template Builder, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, or Adobe Acrobat to create a blank template file. In Word, this would be a blank .rtf file.
Step 2 – Add an object to the JD Edwards XML Publisher Object Repository (P95600), using the template name for the object name.
After clicking OK, you will be prompted to upload the rtf file.
Then you need to set the Effective dates for the template. Pick the current date/time for start, and leave the end date blank to specify no expiration.
Step 3 – Using a FAT client, create a report definition in the JD Edwards XML Publisher Report Definition application (P95620), associating the source batch application (UBE) and the template. Use Blind Submission here as an option.
Name and description
Source UBE that will extract the data
Optionally select a version if the Report Definition is limited to one specific version
Step 3 (cont) –
After clicking “Next”, set the types of outputs you want to allow, and which one is the default.
Set the Language preference to use.
Step 3 (cont) –
After clicking “Next”, set the bursting and delivery options. These are actually optional, NOT required.
Select whether to burst
Select which field to burst on
Requires full XPath to be typed Typically want to burst based on a level break header section
Printing: only supported for PDF output & PostScript printers
Email: based on single email address, Addr. Book number, or by data from the report (via Xpath)
Finally, click “End” to finish the RD
Step 6 – Use the XML data to design the template in the desktop application that you used to create the template (such as Word).
In Word, after loading your blank document, from the BI Publisher Ribbon, “Load Data” section, click “Sample XML” to load the XML the server generated in the previous step.
Proceed with template design. (*part of the next session)
