Luckily, you were not afraid to ask. AutoConfig supports the automated configuration of E-Business Suite technology stack components, but tracking down specific AutoConfig variables in their associated configuration files can be a daunting task.
The AutoConfig Search Utility (formally known as the TXK Context Variable Information Utility) scans your AutoConfig infrastructure for a requested string and generates a detailed report about the relevant AutoConfig variables and their usage. The report
contains, among other things, the following information about relevant AutoConfig variables:
You can use the utility to search for:
For example you can enter either "s_contextfile" or even the word "context." If you search for just a word the report will include information on all context variables that have the given word in
their name or in their definition.
We delivered the first version of the AutoConfig Search Utility in E-Business Suite Release 11i and 12.0.x. We've enhanced and updated Phase II of the tool in Release 12.1.1.
In the first version, the scope of the AutoConfig Search Utility is limited to AD and FND products. In the latest version included with Release 12.1.1, we've expanded the tool's scope to include ALL product tops. We've also enhanced the 12.1.1 version
to allow you to drill down into all configuration files that include the variable. The tool generates the report in HTML format on the application and database tier.
Running the AutoConfig Search Utility
Here's an example report generated when running the AutoConfig Search Utility from the Application tier for the search string "java" using the following command:
perl <FND_TOP>/bin/txkrun.pl -script=GenCtxInfRep -keyword=jdbc -outfile= txkContext_Apps.html
The 12.1.1 report looks like this:
