Try Our New Inventory Transactions Analyzer!

Back in our early November 2015 post, we announced the release of the EBS Inventory Consignment Analyzer Doc ID 2048039.1. The Inventory Social Media Team is now excited to announce the release of the EBS Inventory Transactions Analyzer Doc ID 1499475.1.

You may be familiar with Doc ID 1499475.1, it used to offer the Inventory Analyzer. The Inventory Support Team upgraded the Inventory Analyzer to the new Transactions Analyzer to offer a more transactions specific focus.



The new Transactions Analyzer provides the same Inventory patch level checks and Inventory Administration information as the Inventory Analyzer, but it then takes transactions solution capabilities to a different level. It provides a snapshot of your current transactions tables in the 'Transactions Summary' section, then provides definitive solutions to known data issues in the 'Common Data Issues' section.

All of our EBS Analyzers are Support Tools designed to help Customers find quick solutions. We hope you take advantage of the EBS Inventory Transactions Analyzer as another tool to help manage and prevent roadblocks for transactions processing. By the way, don't forget to provide Feedback using the Feedback button at the bottom of Doc ID 1499475.1. We welcome suggestions for improving the Transactions Analyzer. Here's to using the Transactions Analyzer and successful transactions processing!

The new ORAchk release 12.1.0.2.5 is now available to download

The new ORAchk release 12.1.0.2.5 is now available to download.

New Features in ORAchk 12.1.0.2.5

Create your own checks

Would you find it useful to easily run your own environment or business specific checks?

Now you can use ORAchk to write, execute and report on your own custom user defined checks.

  1. Use the Collection Manager interface to write your checks
  2. ORAchk’s built-in email notification and diff reporting
  3. View the results of your checks in the new “User Defined Checks” section in the ORAchk html report
  4. Collect and easily view all results enterprise wide using the ORAchk Collection Manager

Expanded Oracle Product Support

ORAchk 12.1.0.2.5 now brings wider and deeper support throughout the Oracle product stack, with newly added support for the following product areas:

  • Oracle Identity Manager
  • Oracle E-Business Suite Customer Relationship Management
  • Oracle E-Business Suite Project Billing
  • Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance
  • Oracle Virtual Networking
  • Oracle PeopleSoft Applications
  • Application Continuity

Easily Run or Exclude Specific Individual Checks

New command line switches have been added so you can easily exclude or run only specific checks.

Shorter ORAchk Execution Time

ORAchk now has the ability to cache discovered databases, meaning database rediscovery is skipped and execution time is faster. If databases change you can simple issue one command to have ORAchk refresh the cache.

Support for Custom EBS APPS User

ORAchk will now dynamically determine the APPS user, enabling all EBS checks to be used even if you have changed the name of the APPS user.

See Document 1268927.2 for further details of the new product support.

Over 100 New Health Checks

This release of ORAchk adds more than 100 new checks for some of the most impactful problems seen to Oracle Customer Support specifically in the areas of:

  • Database best practices for patching, performance, scalability and high availability.
  • Oracle Identify Management pre-install settings, post-install configuration and runtime environment.
  • E-Business Suite best practice configuration settings for Human Resources and CRM (forecast, payment worksheets and service contracts).
  • E-Business Suite early detection of incompatible configurations in Project Billing.
  • Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance best practice configuration for performance and resilience.
