Testing Your EBS Environment After Database Upgrades

Steven Chan
Senior Director

Customers often ask, "What should I test after I upgrade my EBS database?" Your environment is, by definition, unique to you, with your own architectural configurations, setup data, and customizations.  You should always concentrate your testing efforts on the areas that may differ from our generic EBS tests.  Until now, our generic common-sense answer has always been, "Test what is important to your business."  

Our Quality Assurance group in EBS Development has just published some guidance on the things that you might consider adding to your post-upgrade test plans:

They discuss things such as memory-intensive concurrent requests, compliance with new standards for initialization parameters, custom workflows, and more.

Your feedback is welcome.  I'll make sure that the Note's authors are notified if you drop me an email or post a comment here.

    This is a step in the right direction. It would benice if this note would point to other ebs specific issues and to the parameter settings for different database version e.g note id 396009.1.

    Hi, Robin,

    Thanks for your comment.

    We have plenty of documentation about how to perform your database upgrade; that documentation discusses EBS-specific issues and things like parameter settings.

    This new Note focusses on what to do after the upgrade, so it serves a complementary purpose.
