We are pleased to announce availability of a new consolidated patch for our EBS cloud automation for the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic (OCI Classic) cloud platforms.

All customers running EBS on either OCI or OCI Classic are encouraged to install this patch and take advantage of the updates and bug fixes included.

Patch Features

Most notably, this patch provides a new, sparse cloning capability for EBS 12.2 and DB environments on Compute Classic and Exadata Cloud Service created with the EBS Cloud Admin Tool. In other words, these are environments where:

  • The application tier services reside in OCI Compute Classic
  • The database tier resides on the Exadata Cloud Service

With this new feature, you create an EBS Snapshot Master and then use it to create a new, cloned environment.

For full instructions, see the Oracle By Example Tutorial Managing Oracle E-Business Suite on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic Using the EBS Cloud Admin Tool.

Obtaining the Patch

If you are using the EBS Cloud Admin Tool to provision Oracle E-Business Suite, perform a lift and shift operation, or manage an environment created using the tool, follow the appropriate instructions below to uptake these important fixes:
