Modifying BI Publisher reports in Oracle Enterprise Manager 13c, e.g. ‘Database Usage Tracking Summary’;
Recently I bumped into an annoying bug in the code of a report, wrote about it a while ago, notified Oracle. And they has confirmed that a new version of this specific report is in development phase.
But.. a report can be modified, so if it’s not that hard, why wait for a patch when you want to use a report you need in the meantime? It is is not advisable to modify a standard report, because undoubtedly there will be other changes in a patch to come (e.g. the datamodel), but as long you are aware of this…..
So I chose to modify my favourite report ‘Database Usage Tracking Summary’ for this blog. And it turned out to be surprisingly simple.
