So I heard about the R12.1.3+ EBS Wide RPC, how is that different than the 12.1.3 Procurement Rollup Patches?

For 12.1.3 most of us follow Doc ID 1468883.1 and apply the current Procurement Rollup Patch (RUP) listed, but lately there has been a lot of information being circulated about the Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.3+ Recommended Patch Collection 1 (RPC1).

The last RUP for Oracle Procurement was released in January 2014 (18120913:R12.PRC_PF.B) and the good news it is included in the new RPC1!  So if you are running R12.1.3 but have not yet applied the January 2014 RUP that is specific for Procurement then you can instead choose to apply this latest R12.1.3+ patch.  RPC1 includes rollup patches for many of our Product Family groups in the EBusiness Suite like ATG, CRM, HRMS, Supply Chain Management and more!

Applying this patch in a single downtime patching window saves effort and time, rather than applying each recommended patch individually.

For more information on the R12.1.3+  RPC please refer to Doc ID 1638535.1 - Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.3+ Recommended Patch Collection 1 (RPC1)

Should You Apply The R12.1.3+ EBS Wide RPC or Wait for a Payables Specific RPC?

Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.3+ Recommended Patch Collection is Available!

The last RPC for Oracle Payables was released in September 2013 (Doc ID 1397581.1) and usually at this time of year we see development release the next RPC for Payables.   However, this year there will not be a new Payables RPC released until much later in the year.

Instead of a March 2014 Payables RPC development have released the 12.1.3+ RPC that is EBS wide.  This patch includes ALL the recommended patches along with their dependencies. 


If you are running R12.1.3 but have not yet applied the September 2013 RPCs for Payables then you can instead choose to apply this latest R12.1.3+ patch which includes all the RPCs for Payables and the companion RPCs for Workflow, PCard and iSupplier in addition to Cash Management and EBTax RPCs.  

Applying this patch in a single downtime patching window saves effort and time, rather than applying each recommended patch individually.


For more information on the R12.1.3+  RPC please refer to Doc ID 1638535.1 - Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.3+ Recommended Patch Collection 1 (RPC1) 

Note: Before upgrading to Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.3 and applying 12.1.3+ E-Business Suite RPC1, refer to Doc ID 761570.1 - Database Preparation Guidelines for an Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1 Upgrade - and ensure that all patches for your specific database release are applied to your environment.

Diagnostic: HCM Technical Analyzer Now Available!

The HCM Proactive Support Delivery Team is introducing the HCM Technical Analyzer, a Health-Check script which reviews your overall HCM footprint by analyzing your current configurations and settings for your HCM environment.  The HCM Technical Analyzer is a non-invasive script which is designed to provide proactive feedback and recommendations associated with the HCM instance on which the analyzer is executed.

This Analyzer / Health Check / Data Collection tool is a PL*Sql script which will check the E-Business Suite environment and can be executed on all currently released / supported application versions  (i.e. 11.5.10.2, 12.0, 12.1, and 12.2).   As the process executes, it will output diagnostics advice and proactive recommendations within an .html output file.

When reviewing the analyzer output, you can immediately see where issues are identified as they are displayed in red (errors), orange (warnings) or blue (best practices), so that they can be easily seen.  In addition to identifying areas of concern, the analyzer will also identify My Oracle Support (MOS) articles which can be utilized to resolve the issue.

The Analyzer can be executed using one of two 'Run Type' parameters: 

  • Run Type = ISSUES, which will execute the Analyzer / Health Check with the output geared to customer problem resolution. This option will display only those sections where an issue or potential issue is identified so that you the customer can proactively address them.
  • Run Type = ALL, which will execute the Analyzer as a Data Collection tool which can be used to assist an Oracle Support Engineer in resolving an issue.

 The Analyzer is designed specifically to be used with the Human Capital Management (HCM) products, which is driven by the following input parameter values:

  • BEN - Benefits
  • HR - Human Resources
  • IRC - iRecuitment
  • OTL - Oracle Time and Labor
  • PAY - Payroll
  • SSHR - Self Service Human Resources
  • ALL - All HCM products above.

When the Analyzer is executed an environment review is performed and feedback provided on: 

  • Performance related setups and checks
  • Invalid objects, disabled triggers, and database issues
  • Profile settings
  • Packages and java classes version
  • Patching status.

It is recommended that this script be setup as a concurrent request from the E-Business Suite interface so that it maybe executed by either Functional or Technical representatives from your business.

  • How to run the HCM Technical Analyzer as a Concurrent Request (Doc ID 1575663.1)


Download the HCM Technical Analyzer Script (Doc ID 1562530.1) Today, and Provide us your Feedback!

Oracle E-Business Products New Search Helpers for Guided Resolution of Customer Issues

Oracle E-Business Proactive Support has created many new guided resolution documents that you may find helpful in resolving issues in your EBS applications.  These new documents are called “Search Helpers” and they guide you through your issue to a solution.  They are meant to be an easy and fast method to finding a relevant, complete solution.

Hundreds of notes and service requests were reviewed and the best solutions to these known issues were selected.  For some issues, notes were updated to better clarify the solution.  In other cases, if a note with a solution did not already exist, one was created.

You start the process by selecting the scenario you have encountered.  You may have received an error message, or there may be a particular area of the application in which you have encountered an issue.  Based on your selection of the issue, the Search Helper will present one or more additional possible symptoms.  When you have selected from both of these two sections, you are then presented with one or more articles known to have fully solved this issue in the past. 

Several EBS products have produced Search Helpers documents.  Take a look at Doc ID 1501724.1 for an index of the current EBS Search Helpers. 

Here is an example of a Search Helper from the Receivables Transactions area:

Receivables Transactions Search Helper

After selecting the Functional Area of "Entering / Updating Transactions" a list of Known Symptoms is presented:

Receivables Transactions Search Helper - Symptoms

And, when "Transaction numbers are not in sequence" is selected, a solution link is provided for Document ID 197212.1: How To Setup Gapless Document Sequencing in Receivables.

Receivables Transactions Search Helper - Solution

The EBS applications that currently have published Search Helpers are:
Advanced Pricing
Applications Technology
Configurator
General Ledger
Human Capital Management
Inventory Management
Order Management
Payables
Process Manufacturing
Purchasing
Receivables
Shipping
Value Chain Planning
