The OneCloud BizApp for Oracle Essbase streamlines the integration and management of on-premises Essbase cubes with other systems that co-exist in the cloud or on-premises. OneCloud provides easy out-of-the-box commands to orchestrate important Essbase operations including high-speed data load and extract, execution of calculations and management of system settings. When combined with OneCloud’s support for other technologies, the cloud becomes seamless from an application perspective.
OneCloud connects to Oracle Essbase via the published Java API. To automate functionality within your Oracle Essbase environment from OneCloud, you'll need to navigate to the connection manager to create a connection.
This connection requires a OneCloud GroundRunner. Learn more about the GroundRunner Configuration.
From here, choose Oracle Essbase from the service drop-down, select the appropriate Runner, and use the Oracle Essbase Connections Parameters to complete the setup.
Oracle Essbase requires access to the following Essbase client JAR files:
These files can be located where Oracle Essbase is installed. Default location as follows:
- Microsoft Windows: C:\Oracle\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1\common\EssbaseJavaAPI\188.8.131.52\lib
- Linux: /User/<username>/Oracle/Middleware/EPMSystem11R1/common/EssbaseJavaAPI/184.108.40.206/lib
Configure a OneCloud GroundRunner to interact with Essbase on the same server
If the installation of GroundRunner is on the same server than the server that is hosting Oracle Essbase, then simply set the Java API Path to the folder location of the Essbase client Jar files.
Configure a OneCloud GroundRunner to interact with a remote Essbase server
If the installation of GroundRunner is on the different server than the server that is hosting Oracle Essbase, then copy these files to a new folder on the server that hosts the GroundRunner and set the Java API Path to this folder.
The following is an example of a working connection. Please substitute your own values.
The Embedded Mode option should be used only when Oracle EPM products are installed with the "Embedded Mode" option which is typically used for standalone Hyperion environments.
For documentation on all available commands, see the Oracle Essbase Command Reference.
