HCM: Three New Troubleshooting Assistants for HCM...and One Gets a New Look

You may be familiar with the term "Search Helper".  A Search Helper for iRecruitment was introduced last year as an easy and fast method to finding a relevant, complete solution to common issues encountered by our customers.  Search Helpers exist for many products across the E-Business Suite.

Search Helpers have been re-tooled to provide an improved customer experience within My Oracle Support.  Part of that re-tooling includes reformatting and renaming the Search Helpers to one or more Assistants that more clearly define the intent or purpose of the guided resolution.  Whether you are using the Assistant within My Oracle Support to resolve an issue through Search/Browse or as part of SR creation, you will notice a different look to the Assistants, but the same information as was previously available via the Search Helpers will be provided via the Assistants.


Here's a new look at the Troubleshooting Assistant for iRecruitment (Doc ID 1451641.1):

Three new Troubleshooting Assistants have been published to help you resolve errors in HR and Payroll.
Check out the new assistants:
ORA Errors in HR - Doc ID 1561356.1
ORA Errors in Payroll -  Doc ID 1561515.1
APP Errors in Payroll - Doc ID 1566491.1

For a full listing of all assistants in EBS check the index note Doc ID 1501724.1.

These patches can be downloaded from My Oracle Support (MOS).  Be sure to review the README for important prerequisite, patching, and post-install information (including data installer and hrglobal.drv ) BEFORE applying the patch.

Why is the RUP important to your business? 

Keeping up with application of the current HRMS RUP is important so that your system has the latest HR & Payroll features and bug fixes.  Also, the current RUP patches listed above are all a mandatory requirement for Year End processing in the Oracle Payroll localizations delivered by Product Development (known as 'Tier 1') legislation's and US Federal HR products. For more information, review MOS Document.295406.1

What’s included in these RUP patches?

Typically the RUP includes changes for new features or functionality that Oracle Development is releasing at that time.  The RUP also includes bug fixes for various issues that have been discovered & resolved over the last several months since the last RUP update.  Also, depending on your legislation, the RUP may include legislative specific changes or updates which are timely and necessary for staying current with HR and Payroll functionality in your legislation.

For a list of the new features, changes, and bug fixes, review the README documents on My Oracle Support.  There you’ll find details explaining what is being delivered in the patch, as well as important information regarding the application of the patch. These documents include links to legislative specific README notes, where you can also review what has been delivered specifically for your legislation.  As mentioned before, review the README information BEFORE applying the patch.

Here are the README documents which are available on My Oracle Support (MOS) for the 2013 RUP releases:

  • Doc ID 1540662.1  About Oracle 11i HRMS Family Pack K Rollup 8(RUP8) (14488556 11i.HR_PF.K.DELTA.8) - Global
  • Doc ID 1564126.1 Oracle Human Resources Management Systems Readme, HRMS Release Update Pack 11 Release 12.0
  • Doc ID 1549442.1  Oracle Human Resources Management Systems Readme, HRMS Release Update Pack 6  Release 12.1


Are there any issues with applying these latest RUP patches?

Yes, please be aware that there could be some issues that were discovered after these RUP patches were released.  There is a ‘known issues’ document for each release version, to give you a heads-up on what might impact your environment.  So be sure to review these documents as well, in conjunction with the patch README documents.

  • Doc ID 1538593.1  Known Issues on Top of Patch 14488556 - 11i.HR_PF.K.DELTA.8 (HRMS 11i RUP8)
  • Doc ID 1538635.1 Known Issues on Top of Patch 16077077 - R12.HR_PF.A.DELTA.11 (HRMS 12.0 RUP11)
  • Doc ID 1538636.1 Known Issues on Top of Patch 16000686 - R12.HR_PF.B.DELTA.6(HRMS 12.1 RUP6)


So don’t delay! Year End processing is just around the corner for some legislations, so you want to be prepared by having the latest RUP patch already tested & applied! If you have any issues or questions when applying the RUP patch, please do a Knowledge search on My Oracle Support (MOS) , and review the known issues documentation.

As always, if you can’t find the solution there, please log a new Service Request for assistance from Oracle Support.
