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.

Did you know the Sep 2013 RPC's for AP, IBY, CE, EBTax, Workflow and iSupplier are available?

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.
