October EPM patch set updates released

(in via Greg)

Greg has passed me the list of the October patch set updates for the EPM system.

The list reads:

I would be too much to cover all fixes of these patch sets here, and they are covered in the readme files of the patch sets anyway. Just remember to read the installation instructions first. As  Henri mentions on his blog, for some patches more than just one of these patch sets is necessary.

Among the fixed issues we see:

  • A fair number of drill issues with SmartView / Essbase
  • EAS login issues
  • APS enhanced ODL logging
  • 25 Bugs in Disclosure Management
  • 19 Issues in Hyperion Planning
  • and many more

As always we have also updated the list in the recommended patch KM notes under the overview KM Doc:

Available Patch Sets and Patch Set Updates for Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management Products (Doc ID 1400559.1)

For OBIEE as a closed system an overview KM note is:

KM Doc 1488475.1 - OBIEE 11g: Required and Recommended Patches and Patch Sets

Although patching and upgrading are two completely separate tasks, that may require attention to detail, and follow different workflows, some of the procedures around patching and upgrading are identical.

I would therefore like to point you to our KM Note: Upgrade Advisor: Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) System Upgrade from to 11.1.2.x (Doc ID 324.1) as a first reference and starting point to keep your system current.

EPM September patch set released

(in via Greg)

Greg just informed us of the release of the September patch set (,, and for the EPM System. 

The detailed list of released patches is:

The list of defects fixed and the installation documentation can be found in the readme for the patches.

You find the readme if you follow the links to the patch(es), click on your chosen patch and select "readme" in the pop up in MOS.

The list is a little too long to be posted here, and I will not go into detail of it. But I would like to mention that this patch ( is cumulative, and contains all fixes from the patches,,, so there is no need to install these once you have installed the latest one.

The same goes for the patches to R&A ( - cumulative) and BR ( - cumulative).

HSS ( - LCM fix only) fixes only one issue and there was no previous patch to that code line.
