HCM: Introducing the 'HCM Person Analyzer' for EBS Human Capital Management

HCM Product Support is introducing the HCM Person Analyzer - an Analyzer/Data Collection tool to assist in displaying information for a specific person or multiple persons.  The information can be used by both customers and Oracle Support to analyze and troubleshoot issues for a person and their related HCM data (including assignments, elements, periods of service, etc). 

The analyzer provides similar information currently gathered from Diagnosing Oracle HCM Person Issues Using PER.zip Doc ID 168181.1 but in an HTML format.  

 Additional benefits of the HCM Person Analyzer include:

  • Parameter driven, so can be executed for a single person_id  or multiple person_ids
  • Ability to execute the analyzer at any time 
  • Can be setup as concurrent request

 

This is the initial delivery of the analyzer.  Over time, we expect to release enhanced versions of the script which identify potential data issues and highlight My Oracle Support (MOS) articles which can be used to resolve an issue.   

The Analyzer is a PL*Sql script which can be run for all supported application versions (11i, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2) and provides the following types of information:

  • Instance, database and installation details
  • Patching status
  • Person complete information
  • Common Information

 

To obtain the HCM Person Analyzer, go to

EBS Human Capital Management (HCM) Person Analyzer Doc ID 1675487.1

When reviewing the analyzer output, you can immediately see complete person(s) information.



Instructions on how this Analyzer can be set up as a concurrent request so that functional users will have the ability to run the Analyzer as required are available in:

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.

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
