    It's great that we can now keep our EBS environments up to date with the database updates, but when will we be able to go from 12.1.3 on 19c to 12.2.x? Trying to put together the plan for the coming year, but currently RapidWiz doesn't work with the upgraded database.

    Tammy -

    Thanks for the feedback. We are currently working on updating our upgrade documentation to include a path for an EBS 12.1 with Database 19c upgrade to EBS 12.2.

    Hi Elke,

    Is DB 19.6 certified with R12.1.3? I see the contents of 19.6 is already added to the Interoperability document# 2580629.1.

    This blog still shows as R12.1.3 is certified with 19.5 only

    Please clarify

    Mukarram, Thanks for the inquiry. MOS Note 2580629.1 is correct. Database Release Update 19.6 is certified with EBS 12.1.3 and EBS 12.2.

    The timing of the initial certification of EBS 12.2 and 12.1.3 with 19c and the release of Database Release Update 19.4 required us to provide guidance and a blog post regarding certification with Database Release Update 19.5.

    With prior Database Releases (,, we did not publish a blog article with each certification of database bundle patches. The plan for 19c was to continue with this established model and not announce each certification of Database Release Updates.

    For EBS 12.2, when ETCC updates are announced with a blog article, the latest certified Database Release Update is included. Given your post, I will consider if publishing a blog article to cover certification of EBS 12.1.3 and later Database Release Updates is required.
