EBS Accounts Payables Customer Advisory

Blogging to let you know of an important set of Oracle Payables patches that were released in January for R12.1 customers. 


Accounts Payable Customer Advisory




Dear Valued Oracle Support Customer,

Since the release of R12.1.3 a number of recommended Payables patches have been made available as standalone patches, to help address important business process incidents. Adoption of these patches is highly recommended. To further facilitate adoption of these Payables patches Oracle has consolidated them into a single Recommended Patch Collection (RPC).

The RPC is a collection of recommended Payables patches created with the following goals in mind:

  • Stability: Help address issues that are identified by Oracle Development and Oracle Software Support that may interfere with the normal completion of important business processes such as period close.
  • Root Cause Fixes: Help make available root cause fix for data integrity that may delay period close, normal invoice flow and other business actions.
  • Compact: Keep the file footprint as small as possible to help facilitate the install process and minimize testing.
  • Granular: Collection of patches based on functional area that allows customer to apply, based on their individual needs and goals, all three RPC’s at once or in phases.

The following three new RPC patches are available for Payables:

Patch 13563472:R12.AP.B - Core AP
Contains recommended fixes for the following core functional modules: Payables (AP), Payments (IBY) and EBTax (ZX)

Patch 13563481:R12.AP.B – ISP

Contains recommended fixes for AP iSupplier integration. This RPC does not provide fixes for Procurement iSupplier)


Patch 13563489:R12.AP.B – WF and PCARD
Contains recommended fixes for the following non-core functional modules: Workflow and PCard

Every R12.1.x customer is highly encouraged to apply the recommended RPC’s. Please review R12.1: Payables Recommended Patch Collection (AP RPC), January 2012 (Doc ID 1397581.1) for more details on the contents of this highly recommended patch.


Sincerely,
Oracle Software Support

Support - Advisor Webcasts December 2011

From ATGNEWS,

We want to invite you to our Advisor Webcast sessions scheduled for December 2011.

In December we are presenting 2 Webcasts, which could be interesting for you. From the EBS Technology area we are presenting a Webcast about the 'Workflow Analyzer Healthcheck'. This is a check script which has been developed by William Burbage for the Proactive Support area. It is checking your Workflow Installation of the E-Business Suite, which creates a report with possible issues and which actions you should follow to solve them. William Burbage will be the presenter for this Webcast.
The second Webcast is presented under the Order Management area, but is also interesting for any technical oriented engineer, as it is around the Upgrade Advisor and the Patching Advisor. These are documents created to support you with your Upgrade- and your maintenance work. This Webcast will be presented by Doreen McMahon. Please see the details for these 2 sessions:
