The OAC 17.3.5 (August 2017) release extended connectivity to PBCS / EPBCS.
The configuration / setup instructions can be found here. OAC PaaS Docs
I followed each of these and when I attempted to connect and import metadata I received the following:
the NQSAdminTool.log file was not too helpful
However, I got to thinking; for the connectivity to Essbase Cloud I needed to open up ports on my Cloud Compute. I checked with my contact within my contact within Product Development and this was confirmed.
So after logging into myCloudService and switching to the Compute Console / Network
I created a new Security Application with connectivity on port 9506
Next, I created a Security Rule with the Destination ANALYTICS/instance/ora_bi_infraadmin
Then back to my OAC Client Admin tool. I provided all the necessary connection information and Voila! I am able to import my EPBCS cubes into my RPD.
Until next time!
