Do you have the most recent version of your favorite EBS analyzer? Oracle Support is constantly improving analyzers so that you have the latest solutions, warnings, and information available to you. The EBS Inventory Transactions Analyzer (Doc ID 1499475.1) for instance, is at current version 200.20. Always look at the upper left-hand portion of your analyzer output to see your analyzer version:
It's easy to get the most recent version of an analyzer. First, you can check out all available single analyzers from note, Get Proactive with Oracle E-Business Suite - Product Support Analyzer Index (Doc ID 1545562.1). Just click on the analyzer note you'd like to review, and download the analyzer from the specific analyzer note.
Second, you can always get the newest analyzers and versions available by using the EBS Analyzer Bundle Menu Tool (Doc ID 1939637.1). The Bundle Menu Tool provides all EBS analyzers in one download. Support provides a new bundle around the first of every month, with the latest analyzers available. Just update your bundle once a month, and you get the latest. Many of our Customers just update their bundle around the middle of the month.
As a very important side note, Oracle Support has a new analyzer framework version coming soon, and Service Request (SR) automation will require an analyzer have the new framework. So soon it will be required that you provide the latest analyzer in your SR’s. We’ll certainly give you an update in this blog space and from a Support level when the new analyzer framework is released. Keep your eyes open.
There's huge advantages to using the most recent version of an analyzer. So whether you're downloading and using analyzers individually, or using the Bundle Menu Tool, be sure to take advantage of the best an analyzer has to offer, and use the latest version.
