Whilst running the exportServiceInstance WLST API command on an OBIEE 184.108.40.206 instance to generate an OBIEE 12c BAR file, I got this warning message:
In 220.127.116.11, however, the warning is now an error message:
There doesn't appear to be any Oracle documentation about what the replacement APIs are other than the location in the 18.104.22.168 error message (see above). The importServiceInstance WLST API command is also impacted by this.
A list of files in the /bitools/bin directory shows there are 2 scripts called import_bar.sh and export_service_instance.sh.
The export_service_instance.sh script takes the following parameters:
For the import_bar.sh script, the parameters are as below:
These new APIs are available in 22.214.171.124 as well as 126.96.36.199. They appear to be more straightforward to execute as the old WLST API commands took up to 8 parameters!
The import_bar.sh command is deprecated in OBIEE 188.8.131.52. If it is used, custom application roles will not be imported and there are no errors by the way.
In 184.108.40.206, you will need to use the import archive.sh command which is located in the bitools directory.
The parameters for this command are as follows:
Location of BAR file to be imported
There is a list of optional parameters as well which determine what content of the BAR file is required for the import.
