Step by Step details of Oracle BI Publisher FTP Setup
A deliver method must be configured in BI Publisher for schedule a report. FTP is one of the best delivery optional available in BI Publisher because the report is saved in a network location like a shared folder and can be accessible by anyone in the organization. Although BI Publisher EMAIL delivery is another best option and widely used but the delivery of report in email is limited to 14MB. We cannot increase the limit.
An FTP Server must be available before proceeding this instruction. Click on FTP Server configuration on Windows to see how to set up an FTP Server on Windows if you don’t have one.
