We have mentioned this before in a number of blogposts. But as the functionality is on the rather new side and as people tend not to read old blogposts, I have decided to give you another round of "How to use the certification tab in on "My Oracle Support"".
You may or may not have noticed the tab "Certification" on MOS. Chances are, you never clicked on it, as you were too busy logging a new Service Request for your current issue.
Let us discover what this can do for you in four easy screenshots.
Clicking on this tab will not only take you to the certification search part, but also sports a number of links on the left. These include information about the state of the certification tool, the Oracle lifetime policy and a link to the video outlining the use of this tool.
In this case we are looking for information on Essbase v 188.8.131.52 on Windows 2008 R2 (64-bit) - let us see what we can get back from the certification tool
Not only can we instantly see that this version of Essbase is compatible with Win2K8R2x64 but we also see a list of Supported Databases and the versions supported, the OS itself and the JDK that can be used.
With a search that goes for the entire EPM System, we get the following result - note the additional information you find at the bottom that can take you to a more specific product related view.
I have had a look at earlier blogposts here and found a few related to certification / supported platforms - so in case your product is not yet covered by the MOS tab, you may want to give these a visit to find the information you are looking for:
- Where are your questions now?
- OBIEE certification update
- Official Oracle Certification Definition
- Five minutes to lunch and no idea what to spend them on?
- KM Doc EPM Support Matrix - Product Compatibility Information [ID 1507504.1]
