Many of the guides for setting up DRM Web Services API deal with configuration of older versions of WebLogic than what comes with Oracle EPM 11.2 . The EPM 11.2 documentation ‘Deployment Options Guide’ is a fine document but has no screen shots. The other DRM documents out there either say ‘look at these other documents’ (many of which were not yet updated to show WebLogic 12c navigation) or are written for the WebLogic 11 server menus. This document generally follows the Oracle EPM 11.2 DOG.
Part 1, Database Configuration and Installation of OWSM
The RCU, Oracle’s utility for database creation, is straight-forward and has not changed for our purposes. If you have installed EPM already, you should already have run RCU as part of preparation for the EPM WebLogic application deployment steps. Be sure you have deployed at least one WebLogic component (Foundation Services) prior to following this guide. Run these steps on the Oracle EPM server you will be using as your primary WebLogic server.
If you did not already, go back and run RCU again, this time ensuring the checkboxes under AS Common Schemas for ‘Oracle Platform Security Services’ and ‘Metadata Services’ are checked. Note the Schema Owner as these will be required later.
If you should have any questions or concerns with your EPM environment, let us know, we’re here to assist as always!
