Send Insight reports over sFTP, REST or other more secure method, rather than email.

I would like the ability to send reports from Insight (OBIEE) via sFTP, REST API or similar method. Currently sending via email is not considered secure enough by the business.


We are currently scheduling weekly reports that contains sensitive data. We send excel files secured with password. We would like to send more securely due to pressures from IT and Legal teams. Currently this is treated as acceptable and a temporary measure until a more permanent and secure solution can be found.

The users that receive the reports often do not have access to Eloqua. This means that dashboards and reports that could normally be accessed securely from within the system are not available.


We would like to see functionality that can export both standard and custom reports and dashboards more securely via sFTP rather than just via an email attached. Also API access or similar method would also be acceptable. I understand that OBIEE has a publisher tool that appears to support this technology. Similar functionality would be useful.

Impact of implementing

- More secure data transfer.

- Improve the file size of reports so we can use more advanced capabilities.

- Drive adoption of Eloqua reporting as more reporting can be provided.

Impact of not implementing

IT and Legal teams might push business to use alternative platforms that can perform this. Or export via sFTP and use other analytics platforms to run and send analysis. Therefore there is no need for an Insight license.
