Note:

For those pages that include a Help icon, click the Help icon to access the page-level help. Complete the elements on the page using the descriptions in the Help topic for the page.

While you are accessing the Reports application configuration pages in Enterprise Manager, if an application is shut down from Enterprise Manager, you may see an error message that states that the Reports configuration Mbeans are not found. This message is displayed because the Reports configuration Mbeans are not available when an application is down. When you refresh the page or return to the page again, Enterprise Manager displays a user-friendly message about the Reports application being down and the inability of Enterprise Manager to edit the configuration of the applilcation. When you start the Reports application again, the editing of its configuration becomes possible.

Starting with the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11.1.1.3.0 release, the version of the Reports application in Enterprise Manager is shown as reports (11.1.1.2.0) (WLS_REPORTS).
