Reproducing the Issue

First scenario:

  1. Log into instance
  2. Go to Employee Profile
  3. Try to Generate a PPTC Report
  4. Cannot Publish the PPTC

Second scenario:

  1. Go to Reports > Publishing
  2. Select the filters
  3. Click on Publish Talent Card
  4. Go to Scheduled Reports
  5. See that the report will get stuck or will fail


  • The PPTC reports are still in the previously used template format (Batch Publish)
  • The Batch Publish option is being selected to create the PPTC


The Batch Publish option was used for the older template built with BI Publishing technology (BIP). After 1802 release, the BIP server is sunsetted and no longer in used.

You should convert the PPTC template to BIRT technology and use the BIRT option to create the card or to run the batch.
