Oracle announced yesterday that PeopleTools 8.57.04 Product Patch is now available for on-premises downloads. Go to the PeopleTools 8.57 Home Page on My Oracle Support (doc 2433119.2) for more information and a link to the PeopleSoft Patches Home Page. This patch is also available on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). All customers using PeopleSoft Cloud Manager will be able to subscribe to the PeopleTools 8.57 channel and have the new patch automatically downloaded to their cloud repository and ready for one-click upgrade/patching.
I'd like to extend thanks to all the customers and partners that took the time to upgrade a PeopleSoft instance to 8.57 using PeopleSoft Cloud Manager. Many have shared their stories in webinars, conference sessions and blog posts. One of my favorites is a blog post from Graham Smith, Cedar Consulting, who in this post 'PeopleTools 8.57 Upgrade Magic' coined the term 'Magic Upgrade PeopleTools Button'. The name is going to stick.
Visit my previous post PeopleTools 8.57 is Available on the Oracle Cloud for more information and links to additional resources on the new Tools release. Also, don't forget to stay informed with the Tech Updates (doc 764222.1). There are important updates about how 8.57 is the last PeopleTools release that will support MAP technology and the DB2 LUW platform.
For those of you that would still like to try the 'Magic Upgrade Button' in the cloud, you can still do that with a free trial account. Instructions have been made into a spotlight video, Upgrading to 8.57 on Oracle Cloud using PeopleSoft Cloud Manager. You can find a link to that video and all spotlight videos here.
