Stay Up-to-date With Your Inventory Patches by Using the Patch Wizard

I'm sure all EBS Inventory Customers can relate. There's one question all Customers hear repeatedly from Inventory Support Engineers: Are you patched to the most recent file version(s)? There's a good reason why you hear this question over-and-over. Support Engineers know for Customers to get the most out of their Inventory investment, it's critical that they avoid known issues by being patched up to the most recent Product patches available. One key tool for keeping up with the most recent recommended patches for all EBS Products, is the Patch Wizard, R11i / R12 : Patch Wizard Utility [Video] (Doc ID 976188.1).

The Patch Wizard is an interface that analyzes and compares patches currently applied in your instance to the patches included in the Recommended Patch List (RPL). It allows you to set your execution preferences, then performs impact analysis, and allows easy download of the patches you decide to apply. And to top it off, the Patch Wizard can easily be accessed from the Oracle Applications Manager menu using the System Administrator Responsibility.



When conducting the analysis, the Patch Wizard retrieves current patch information directly from My Oracle Support (MOS) and compares this list with the patches you already have installed in your system. The final report will provide an output of recommended EBS patches and new code level patches for your version and the impact of installing them. You can also specify other patches for which you want Patch Wizard to perform an impact analysis.

As usual, Support strongly encourages you to keep your E-Business Suite system up-to-date with the latest recommended patches. Here's some additional document resources for the patch Wizard Utility, and here's to successful patching:
