Error reading list files response: invalid character '<' looking for beginning of value

When executing a Chain using the (E)PBCS BizApp, you may encounter an error:

Error reading list files response: invalid character '<' looking for beginning of value

This is often caused by specifying a Base URL override in the BizApp Connection that includes /HyperionPlanning

The (E)PBCS BizApp Connection will create the URL based on the properties defined:

  1. Service Name

  2. Domain Name

  3. Data Center

For example, using the input in the above screenshot would generate the following URL:

If your organization has a non-standard URL, then the Base URL Override can be used but should not include any additional pathing after .com


What is the difference between Run Data Load Rule and Run Plan Type Map?

Helping to answer the difference between a Run Data Load Rule command and Run Plan Type Map are crucial. They both may deploy a common technology (Data Management) to achieve this goal; they go about it in different ways.

The EPBCS Run Plan Type Map is mostly used to copy data between databases within the same application. Example provided by Oracle: Copies data from a block storage database to an aggregate storage database or from a block storage to another block storage. Most all of the settings, configurations are performed automatically because you are within common metadata/applications. The system then behind-the-scenes builds and executes a Data Management processes it will execute as necessary.

There are technical limitations to Plan Type Maps that are covered in the Oracle documentation.

The run Data Load Rule is a lot more flexible in that it opens up and exposes the full extent of the Data Management application. This requires the end user, or Administrator, to have fully configured source/target systems, defined mapping, system settings, system properties, etc.

Run Data Management Rule Command returns an error when trying to execute a Data Map

Issue Solution

Data Maps within the Oracle EPM Cloud Service are not Cloud Data Management components. They are a separate integration component that require the use of the Run Plan Type Map Command in order to be executed. Utilize the Run Plan Type Map Command to execute a Data Map.
