Oracle EBS Report Manager

What is Report Manager?

In Oracle EBS "report manager" is a product that has been offered to manage your reporting needs.

Report Manager is basically a secure point-in-time report repository offering centralized management and distribution of reports.

There are different levels of access that you can assign to reports that are generated by the Report Manager.

You can tie these access rights to your department assignments, to employees, or can build your own.

The report manager reports are stored in the database and can be published to a wider audience. The good is that you can manage access/availability to multiple groups of people. This is run as a menu option from the main menu of a specific application (AP, AR, etc.).

Report Manager benefits

R12 Report Manager

The Report Manager seeded functions need to be assigned manually by the System administrators to appropriate responsibilities based on the types of reports a user submits and publishes in their job. For example, a system administrator might assign the Financial Report Template Editor and Financial Report Submission functions to an existing General Ledger responsibility already used for submitting Financial Reports by General Ledger users.

The seeded Report Manager functions are:

Release 12, ADI & Report Manager

In Applications Release 12, WebADI and Report Manager must be used instead of ADI, as client/server ADI is not supported for that release. Also in Release 12 the WebADI functionality for GL is integrated into the standard GL menu structures. These functions are 'Launch Journal Wizard', 'Launch Budget Wizard', and the spreadsheet upload of Currency Rates, via 'Currency Rates Manager'.

i would like to know, how FSG’s can be taken, and enhanced w/ report manager, and WEB ADI.

Yes, ramg the drill down functionality is available with Report Manager. You have to first make a Web ADI template from the template editor and while loading the web template back make sure you click the enable drill down button and then once you have done this…just use the same template to publish any FSG report via RM and there you have it.

When you publish reports to the Report Repository, how do you get the reports to be secured based on the security for the Responsibility that is viewing it? Also, does that then reduce the LOV to just the ones that responsibility has available to them?

I note that the last 5 seeded Report Manager functions do not appear on the menu. So they are seeded exactly where? Thanks.
