You can customize your Oracle E-Business Suite environment running on Oracle Cloud in the same way as you are used to doing on-premises. In addition, you can migrate your Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2 or 12.1 customizations to Oracle Cloud, whether you are performing a lift and shift either to Oracle Compute Cloud Service only, or to Oracle Compute Cloud Service and Oracle Database Cloud Service.
When customizing an Oracle E-Business Suite instance running on Oracle Cloud or on-premises, you must always follow our development guidelines. Be aware that there are differences in the customization standards between Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2 and Release 12.1.
