    After each upgrade of ebs some or other sql changes its execution plan and started performing poorly. Can this analyzer identity those sql whose plan has changed before and after the upgrade, and help in proactive fixing for those.

    Hi Elke,
    quick question about
    "Oracle Database 19c Upgrade Analyzer
    for Oracle E-Business Suite (Doc ID 2704990.1)"

    It seems to me it only applies to 12.2

    Oracle Applications DBA - Version 12.2 to 12.2.9 [Release 12.2Cloud to 12.2]
    Oracle E-Business Suite Technology Stack - Version 12.2 to 12.2.9 [Release 12.2]

    could it be applied to 12.1? or is there a similar doc for 12.1?

    Thanks for your attention.

    YZ - Thanks for the comment.

    The "APPLIES TO" section of MOS Note 2704990.1 states - Version 12.2 to 12.2.9; however, this is misleading.
    I will request that the owner of the MOS Note update this to clarify that
    Database 19c Upgrade Analyzer described in MOS Note 2704990.1 applies to both EBS 12.1 and EBS 12.2.

    Please refer to the details in the MOS Note as the interoperability MOS Note for 12.1 is analyzed and example upgrade guidance is provided for both EBS 12.2 and EBS 12.1.

    YZ - I wanted to provide you an update on the support of EBS 12.1.3 with the DB 19c Upgrade Analyzer.

    The APPLIES section of MOS note 2704990.1 has been updated as follows:
    Oracle Applications DBA - Version 12.1.3 to 12.2.9 [Release 12.1 to 12.2]
    Oracle E-Business Suite Technology Stack - Version 12.1.3 to 12.2.9 [Release 12.1 to 12.2]

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

    Hello Roy,

    There was a similar post on out Technology Stack community page about this same issue. I am looking into this request to be added into the analyzer in the very near future.

    Thank you for you suggestion to improve the analyzer.
