Patch Set Update: Hyperion Profitability and Cost Management 11.1.2.4.100

The following Patch Set Update (PSU) has been released for Hyperion Profitability and Cost Management (HPCM) 11.1.2.4.x.

This PSU download is available from the My Oracle Support | Patches & Updates section.

Hyperion Profitability and Cost Management PSU 11.1.2.4.100
Patch 20466127

This patch can be applied to HPCM 11.1.2.4.000 only.

Prerequisites:

  • Requires Essbase 11.1.2.4.002 or greater
    - check for latest Essbase patch in Knowledge Article Doc ID 1396084.1


New Features:

The New Features in the HPCM 11.1.2.4.100 release include:

  • Financial Close Management Integration for Management Ledger Profitability Applications
    Tasks for HPCM Ledger applications can be incorporated into Hyperion Financial Close Management (FCM) schedules & templates. Users of FCM can create HPCM workflows or include HPCM tasks in workflows with other Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management System (EPM) and non-EPM products to create an end-to-end workflow management solution for all EPM solutions. Users of FCM can find tasks assigned to them within a FCM schedule, access appropriate HPCM screens directly from the scheduler, perform the necessary tasks, and update their scheduled tasks with a status change.

  • Dimension Load Through Profitability Application Console
    The Profitability Application Console, now supports dimension load using flat files for Management Ledger applications. The Console allows users to create shell applications, load dimensions, and validate and enable applications for use with HPCM. 

  • Profitability Application Console UI Enhancements
    The Profitability Application Console has a simplified user interface and Job Library.

  • Essbase Data Load
    One or more data files can be chosen to load data into a Management Ledger calculation cube after it has been deployed. This feature uses the same data file formats supported by Essbase Administration Services (EAS) Console and data load rules.

  • Automated Database Upgrade
    Upgrade SQL scripts for HPCM patches now run automatically as needed when restarting the Profitability service after applying a patch that requires a database upgrade. A manual rollback script is also included.

  • Management Ledger Rule Data Validation Report
    This new system report for Management Ledger applications assists in validating the data present for the key elements in a calculation rule. For the selected rule, it shows all of the dimension intersections for the source and for the driver, along with the source or driver input value that is used to calculate the rule, for each intersection.

  • Capture Essbase Debug Scripts
    Management Ledger application users can check a new box in the Manage Calculation screen to request that the Essbase commands issued to calculate each rule be written to files on the server, one file per rule. This provides quick access to Management Ledger calculation instructions for troubleshooting calculation issues.

  • Save Job Library Messages
    The Profitability Application Console and Management Ledger Job Libraries contains a Save button in the message pop-ups, which allows the messages to be saved to a file. This is useful for multiple errors in Essbase Data Load and for Validation and Impact Analysis messages.

  • REST API Enhancements
    Representational State Transfer (REST) API was introdcued in release 11.1.2.4.000, and provides automation of processes with scripts instead of action by on-site personnel. This release contains the following enhancements:
    • Prepare Detailed Views for Reporting (DP) resource is enhanced to create all DP reporting tables and views for one application in a single call, instead of requiring a separate call for each dimension.
    • Essbase Data Load resource supports the new Essbase Data Load feature in the Manage Calculation screen.
    • The following resources support the new flat file dimension load feature for Management Ledger applications:
      • Create File based HPCM Application,
      • Enable File based Application,
      • Update File based Application using a Flat File.

  • Dimension Files for the Management Ledger Sample Model
    Dimension flat files are now packaged with sample application BksML12 so users can create the Management Ledger sample model using the File Import method.


Additional Information:

Additional summary information for the listed New Features is contained in the Readme file.

For detailed information on these features, see the Oracle Hyperion Profitability and Cost Management Administrator's Guide and Oracle Hyperion Profitability and Cost Management User's Guide, available from:

When only some Essbase portfolio products are included in a patch release, the last released versions of the products that are not included in the patch are supported.

After a patch is applied within the same release codeline, Oracle recommends as a best practice that you export the data from your databases, clear the data from the databases, and then reload the data.
