Have you ever wondered how frequently Oracle releases New Features for OIC, well…the answer depends on what OIC product you are using.
As of October 2023, OIC has two offerings:
Oracle Integration, also known as OIC Gen2
Oracle Integration 3, also known as OIC 3 (OIC3)
The patching model for these two products is different.
OIC Gen2 Instances receives updates every quarter during the following months: February, May, August, and November.
OIC3 instances receives updates bimonthly during the following months: February, April, June, August, October, and December.
Please notice that a patching cycle may last several weeks (especially in Gen2) hence is not uncommon that an instance will get the update in the next month, for example some instances will get October Release in early November.
As usual, check the announcements section in the OCI Cloud Console to know exactly when you will receive an update.
