The latest Recommended Patch Collections (RPC's) for EBS Financials were released for many EBS Financials products in September 2013.
Oracle Support highly recommends that all R12.1.3 customers apply these RPCs. Each RPC is a collection of recommended patches created with the following goals in mind:
- Stability: Address issues that occur often and interfere with the normal completion of crucial business processes, such as period close - as observed by Oracle Development and Global Customer Support.
- Root Cause Fixes: Deliver a root cause fix for data corruption issues that delay period close, normal transaction flow actions, performance and many more..
- Compact: Whilst bundling a large number of important corrections, we have kept the file footprint as small as possible to facilitate uptake and minimize testing.
- Reliable: Reliable code with multiple customer downloads and comprehensive testing by QA, Support and Proactive Support.
For Oracle Payables products, there are RPC's for the following areas:
|Core AP||Doc ID 1397581.1|
|iSupplier/Suppliers||Doc ID 1397581.1|
|Workflow/Procurement Card||Doc ID 1397581.1|
|Payments||Doc ID 1481221.1|
|Cash Management||Doc ID 1367845.1|
|E-Business Tax||Doc ID 1481235.1|
|Subleger Accounting||Doc ID 1481222.1|
For Payables in particular, these are strongly advised to prevent known data integrity issues from resurfacing. The Generic Data Fix (GDF) patches that are available to fix issues detected by the Master GDF (Doc ID 1360390.1) will only fix existing data but the root causes for these data integrity issues cannot be eliminated until the code is upgraded by applying the specific Root Cause Analysis (RCA) patch or the latest RPC.
