OBIEE 11.1.1.6.x: Error Correction Support has Ended - What to do to keep receiving bug fixes and enhancements

A reminder that Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) 11.1.1.6.x "Error Correction Support" ended in April 2014.

OBIEE 11.1.1.6.x: End of Error Correction Support
Doc ID 1642219.1

Although already outlined in previous posts, the support team is still receiving numerous requests for patchsets on older versions of OBIEE.

Every version within a product's life cycle has an "End of Error Correction Support after a defined Grace Period" date.  The grace period for OBIEE 11.1.1.6.x expired one year after the release of OBIEE 11.1.1.7.0. 

With OBIEE 11.1.1.6.x now supported under the Oracle Lifetime Support Policy (PDF), it is important to be aware that development will no longer provide the following for OBIEE 11.1.1.6.x:

  • one-off patches
  • back-port fixes
  • patch sets or bundle patches

This means there is no further addressing of errors, bugs or enhancements within OBIEE 11.1.1.6.x.

Further information on OBIEE Error Correction Support is outlined in knowledge article:
