Siebel Business Applications use Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher (BI Publisher) to generate Siebel reports, to modify the preconfigured Siebel reports and report templates, and to create custom Siebel reports. Siebel Reports supports two environments: a Siebel Reports disconnected environment, for mobile or disconnected clients, and a Siebel Reports connected environment, for connected clients.
In a disconnected Siebel Reports environment, the Siebel BI Publisher Server is a logical component that uses the local XMLP Report Business Service and the BI Publisher Engine to manage report generation. The XMLP Report Business Service and the BI Publisher core libraries are available as part of the Siebel Mobile Web Client and Developer Web Client installations. User authentication mechanisms are not required in a disconnected environment.
In the Siebel Reports connected environment, the BI Publisher is installed separately to Siebel Business Applications. Siebel Web Clients and other connected clients are supported in a Siebel Reports connected environment, but access to the BI Publisher Server is authenticated. For information on the methods available to authenticate user access to the BI Publisher Server in a Siebel Reports connected environment, see Siebel Reports Guide.
