Using the Activity Report

The Activity Report enables Service Administrators to understand application usage. It also helps streamline application design by identifying user requests, calculation scripts, forms, reports, and so on. Two versions of the report; an HTML version and a JSON version, are available.

Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud retains Activity Reports for the last 60 days only. Oracle recommends that you download and create backup copies on a local computer to analyze them for historical trends.

The Activity Report is automatically generated in these three situations:

  • Every day during daily maintenance of the service
  • Each time you submit a Provide Feedback submission
  • Every time you execute the resetService EPM Automate command to restart an environment

EPM Cloud generates an additional Activity Report each time a user submits a feedback using the Provide Feedback Utility. This report, additionally, displays information that the user submitted, for example, screen shots and problem description.


  • The JSON version of the Activity Report is not accessible from the service. Use the downloadFile EPM Automate command to download it.
  • Narrative Reporting Activity Reports are generated and stored in the Narrative Reporting server. While Activity Reports are not accessible from Narrative Reporting screens, they can be downloaded using the downloadFile EPM Automate command.

You can generate a System Audit log, a CSV file, to identify changes to the service over a period of time. See "Performing an Audit" in Administering Narrative Reporting for detailed information.
