New ORAchk Version 12.1.0.2.5 Released!

The new ORAchk release 12.1.0.2.5 is now available to download.

New Features in ORAchk 12.1.0.2.5

- Create your own checks

Would you find it useful to easily run your own environment or business specific checks?

Now you can use ORAchk to write, execute and report on your own custom user defined checks.

  1. Use the Collection Manager interface to write your checks
  2. ORAchk’s built-in email notification and diff reporting
  3. View the results of your checks in the new “User Defined Checks” section in the ORAchk html report
  4. Collect and easily view all results enterprise wide using the ORAchk Collection Manager

- Expanded Oracle Product Support

ORAchk 12.1.0.2.5 now brings wider and deeper support throughout the Oracle product stack, with newly added support for the following product areas:

  • Oracle Identity Manager
  • Oracle E-Business Suite Customer Relationship Management
  • Oracle E-Business Suite Project Billing
  • Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance
  • Oracle Virtual Networking
  • Oracle PeopleSoft Applications
  • Application Continuity

- Easily Run or Exclude Specific Individual Checks

New command line switches have been added so you can easily exclude or run only specific checks.

- Shorter ORAchk Execution Time

ORAchk now has the ability to cache discovered databases, meaning database rediscovery is skipped and execution time is faster. If databases change you can simple issue one command to have ORAchk refresh the cache.

- Support for Custom EBS APPS User

ORAchk will now dynamically determine the APPS user, enabling all EBS checks to be used even if you have changed the name of the APPS user.

See Document 1268927.2 for further details of the new product support.

- Over 100 New Health Checks

This release of ORAchk adds more than 100 new checks for some of the most impactful problems seen to Oracle Customer Support specifically in the areas of:

  • Database best practices for patching, performance, scalability and high availability.
  • Oracle Identity Management pre-install settings, post-install configuration and runtime environment.
  • E-Business Suite best practice configuration settings for Human Resources and CRM (forecast, payment worksheets and service contracts).

Configuring OAM SSO for ATG BCC and Endeca XM

by 2 Comments

Introduction

Single sign-on, or “SSO” as it’s commonly referred to, is an authentication method that allows a user access to multiple applications through a single, secure, point of entry. Rather than authenticate separately for each application, users authenticate once through a centralized service. The benefits of SSO to end users are obvious, but there are also many cost and compliance advantages that are of interest to large organizations, which is why Oracle’s enterprise customers have increasingly demanded SSO integration with Oracle Access Manager (OAM). With the introduction Oracle Commerce 11 they now have it, and in this blog I will be demonstrating how to use OAM to enable SSO between the ATG Business Control Center (BCC) and Endeca Experience Manager (XM).

Note: The above document is from our A-Team chronicles page. To access full article go here:
