Patch Set Update: FDMEE PSU 20648390 11.1.2.4.100 has been released

The following Patch Set Update (PSU) has been released for Hyperion Financial Data Quality Management (FDM) Enterprise Edition.

FDMEE PATCHSET UPDATE 11.1.2.4.100
Patch 20648390

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


Prequisites

Required Microsoft Patch

Microsoft has identified a security issue that could compromise Windows-based systems.  Before installing this patch, verify that the Visual C++  2005 Redistributable Package installed on the computer is current.  You may search and download the latest Visual C++  2005 Redistributable Package from:

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/default.aspx

Required User Rights

The user applying the patch should be the user who was set up to install and configure EPM System products. Required user privileges or rights:

Windows:

Use the user account that has Local administrator rights and was set up for installation and configuration. This user is an administrator and is the same for all EPM System products. Assign local policies if required by the product. Such assignments typically are: “Act as part of the operating system, Bypass traverse checking, Log on as a batch job, Log on as a service.”

UNIX/Linux:

Use the account that was used to install EPM System products and has Read, Write, and Execute permissions on $MIDDLEWARE_HOME. If you installed other Oracle products, the user who installed EPM System products must be in the same group as the user who installed the other Oracle products. OPatches are not intended to be applied using a root user.

New Features / Readme:

Universal Data Adapter
The Universal Data Adapter enables you to integrate external source table/view information directly into FDMEE, bypassing the open interface table. This feature allows the user to easily connect to any source data where they have access to the underlying database in the case where a prepackaged adapter is not available, or if the pre-packaged adapter does not provide the required data. This feature effectively provides direct integration to any source table or view.

Testing Check Rule Expressions
Check rules have been enhanced so that you can now test a rule in the Test Expression tab of the Rule Logic screen and validate conditions for a combination of dimensions. When a test check rule is submitted, you can display errors that were found in the rule being tested.

Loading Exchange Rates to Financial Management
You can now load exchange rates from EBS and Peoplesoft to Hyperion Financial Management.

Extracting Financial Management Journals

Source parameter and source filters have been enhanced to extract the type of journal.

Purge Scripts

FDMEE now supports system processes that enable you to maintain and cleanup all runtime artifacts, such as the Process tables, Staging tables or Inbox / Outbox folders. Often these tables and folders contain vast amounts of data, which you may no longer need. With the Purge Script feature, you can purge standard tables and folder by scheduling system processes and executing them.

Map Monitor Reports
Two new Map Monitor reports have been added to the Audit Reports report group: Map Monitor for Location and Map Monitor for User. Map monitor reports show changes made to the data load mapping rules using any of the methods data load mappings UI, Excel template imports, text file imports, and Lifecycle Management imports.

The Map Monitor reports do not capture historical data earlier than release 11.1.2.4.100. Map Monitor reports are enabled only if the Enable Map Audit is set to “Yes” in System Settings.
