Oracle Enterprise Manager 13.5.0.19 download available on My Oracle Support

Happy New Year, Enterprise Manager and Oracle Observability & Management enthusiasts!  

If you have been following the EM releases for a while, you are familiar with Release Updates (RUs). RUs are the agile way to roll out new EM features and bug fixes, you don't have to wait for a major release. RUs are versioned with a trailing digit indicating the RU version. Note that RUs are cumulative, which means that the most recent RU includes functionality from all previous release updates. Our general recommendation is to apply the most current RU as soon as possible.

Download the latest RU from My Oracle Support:  see the EM 13.5 list of RUs, including plug-ins, in Doc ID 2760230.2 and a complete list of multiple versions of RUs and PSUs in Doc ID 1605609.1

Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit) 2022 Certification

Important reminder on connecting EM to My Oracle Support and Automated Release Update

It is always good practice to update to the latest release of EM. As part of the migration from an on-premises access management system to Oracle Identity Cloud Service effort, you must use EM 13.5 RU 19 to connect to My Oracle Support (MOS) and the Automated Release Update (ARU).

So, RU19 is a must-have to connect to MOS/ARU.  If you have an existing EM installation and you have already set up your connection to MOS/ARU, you must upgrade to RU19 and perform a couple of additional steps at the end of this update.  These steps are detailed in the MOS Note 2998693.1
