Learn about commands that you can use with the repository and the Oracle BI Presentation Catalog.
You can use the following commands to update application roles and users stored in the repository and the Oracle BI Presentation Catalog:
The remaining upload and update commands, for example, Upload Repository Command and Update Repository Variables Command, update the repository, only.
The application roles and users update commands use two plugins, the RPD plugin, which updates the application roles and users in the repository, and the WEBCAT plugin, which updates application roles and the users in the Oracle BI Presentation Catalog.
These plugins function separately, and therefore the failure of one does not impact the other. In the event of a partial failure, or one of the two plugins failing, Oracle recommends that you address the root cause of the failure and then re-execute the command as you initially ran it. Note that re-applying the successful plugin has no impact on the results, but re-executing the command re-runs the failed plugin.
By default, the application roles and users update commands run the two plugins, and the order in which they are run is RPD and then WEBCAT. However, the commands include the
-L option which allows you to specify an individual plugin or to reverse the default order in which the plugins are run. In most cases you will run the commands in the default order, but in some cases you may need to run only one plugin or reverse the order of the plugins.
