IMPORTANT: My Oracle Support Community and OTN Profiles Merge January 31, 2014

IMPORTANT: My Oracle Support Community and OTN Profiles Merge January 31, 2014

Dear My Oracle Support Community User,

On January 31, 2014, we plan to migrate My Oracle Support Community to the same platform used for the Oracle Technology Network (OTN) forums. This platform will bring new community features to help make it easier to find information through a more intuitive interface, and enhance the way you connect with Oracle experts and industry peers. We have identified you as a user who has the same email address to access both My Oracle Support Community and OTN forums. As part of the migration to a single platform these profiles will be merged and the following will occur:
  • Activities and points from both accounts will be combined into a single consolidated account
  • Your OTN handle will be preserved and you will continue to use your email address to access My Oracle Support Community and OTN forums
  • Your existing username will become visible to both My Oracle Support Community and OTN forum members, however, we will set all of your other profile information to be private
  • Some of your existing profile information will not be migrated and will need to be re-entered into your new account profile
We encourage you review your username and profile information once the migration is complete and make the necessary updates based on your privacy preferences.

SEPARATE MY ORACLE SUPPORT COMMUNITY AND OTN ACCOUNTS
If you prefer to maintain two separate accounts (one for OTN forums and the other for My Oracle Support Community), you will need to select a different email address to access OTN forums and update your OTN profile. You must take the following action before January 31, 2014:
  • Log into forums.oracle.com
  • Click on the arrow beside your username at the top right corner of the page
  • Click "Edit Profile and Privacy"
  • Click "Edit Manage your Oracle.com Profile account" located beside your email address
  • Select the Change Username link at the top of the page
  • Enter your current password and the new email address
  • Log out and log back in to confirm that you are able to log in with the new email address
We look for forward to enhancing your Oracle community experience and appreciate your patience as we implement these changes. For more details about My Oracle Support Community features and enhancements, please read the My Oracle Support Community Spotlight.

Sincerely,

Oracle Support

Where is the OUD Certification Matrix?

OUD was it's own product (separate certification matrix, download, etc.) until 11.1.2.0.0 when it was merged with the Identity and Access Management 11gR2 release. Since then, there has been an Identity and Access Management 11.1.2.1.0, and OUD continues to be part of it. It is also part of the upcoming 11.1.2.2.0 release.

Because OUD previously had its own certification matrix, it is natural to look for one in current versions, separate from the Identity and Access Management cert matrices. This is no longer the case.

Be aware that OUD certifications have been consolidated into the overall Identity and Access Management 11.1.2.0.0 certification matrix & the Identity and Access Management 11.1.2.1.0 certification matrix. Both of these are available from the Certification Central Hub on OTN. In addition, OUD details have also been loaded into MOS Certify.

Please reference the certification matrices when making decisions regarding new installations or upgrades.

Happy Trails!
