Fixing Output Post-processor actions failed issues in EBS R12

Tip of the week:

Environment: Oracle EBS 12.1.3, Oracle Database 11gR2, RedHat Linux5


Users unable to open the out files.

Concurrent requests failed with “Post-processing of request failed error message”

One or more post-processing actions failed. Consult the OPP service log for details.

No further attempts will be made to post-process this request.


The concurrent manager process was able to successfully invoke the Output Post-Processor (OPP) but encountered a timeout as the OPP takes longer than the value assigned to complete the job.


Increase the value of profile Concurrent: OPP Response Timeout . Bounce Apache and retest.

If the issue still exists, perform the following steps.

Increase the number of Output Post Processors as follows:

Increase the number of processes for Output Post Processor.

Additionally, ensure there is a setting of  oracle.apps.fnd.cp.opp.OPPServiceThread:2:0:max_threads=5 under Parameters.

    Sunthar, EBS shows my Output Post Processor down, when I try to restart via OAM, and look at the Log I receive an “Error occurred while fetching file”. Where would the log file be located and/or what env variable should I be looking at ?

  2. Please run the below query to get the logfile
    SELECT fcpp.concurrent_request_id req_id, fcp.node_name, fcp.logfile_name
    FROM fnd_conc_pp_actions fcpp, fnd_concurrent_processes fcp
    WHERE fcpp.processor_id = fcp.concurrent_process_id
    AND fcpp.action_type = 6
    AND fcpp.concurrent_request_id = yourrequestid
