Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Cloud - Using Flex Forms Thank you to Shankar Viswanathan for the presentation on this topic. Check out the presentation for the following information. Business Problem Forms are not flexible enough for end users Sheets are protected - users can’t redefine metadata in rows and can't use native excel features in forms: cut/copy/paste, sort and filter Can’t stack too many dimensions on rows on data entry grids Ad-hoc is too unrestricted (not templatized) and can’t force calcs Users should not be able to pivot definitions or use other native ad-hoc features. Business and groovy rules and smart push can’t be used with ad-hoc Typical Use Cases Enable suppress missing for rows on large forms Use copy, paste, filter, sort to enter data for members defined in form grid   Flex Forms in Smart View Best blend of Forms and Adhoc Unprotected rows on sheet Run (groovy) business rules/smart push Use Excel features in row axis dimensions Copy, paste, sort, filter Enable Flex Forms in Form Design Exposed as Flex Forms only via Smart View Acts As Regular Form In Web Flex form can be opened in flex mode (default) or in regular form mode Reference: Working with Oracle Smart View for Office - Flex Forms   Action (Right Click) Menu Changes Action menu for Forms Define right click menu at member level Use Case Have Expense Statement form with each expense line item being planned in a different target form for each expense line item Usage: Allow form association to vary for each member in a form Member A target = Form A Member B target = Form B   Flex Form Guardrails Any modification to a flex form will not be persisted between sessions Some form features are not supported for flex forms You cannot modify columns in flex forms Filtering does not disable Submit Data Sorting disables Submit Data as it changes member order in the column.

Hyperion Essbase Server 11.1.2.4.040 31206864 - HYPERION ESSBASE SERVER 11.1.2.4.040 Hyperion Essbase Client 11.1.2.4.040 31206851 - HYPERION ESSBASE RTC 11.1.2.4.040 31206855 - HYPERION ESSBASE CLIENT 11.1.2.4.040 31206859 - HYPERION ESSBASE CLIENT MSI 11.1.2.4.040 Hyperion Analytic Provider Services 11.1.2.4.040 31206874 - HYPERION ANALYTIC PROVIDER SERVICES 11.1.2.4.040   README FILE: Refer to the Readme files prior to proceeding with these PSU implementations for important information that includes the supported paths per component, along with a full list of the defects fixed, additional support information, prerequisites, details for applying patch and troubleshooting FAQ's. It is important to ensure that the requirements and support paths to this patch are met as outlined within the Readme file. The Readme file is available from the Patches & Updates download screen for each of the Hyperion Essbase components. Recommendations: Caution: Oracle recommends using the same version of all Essbase portfolio products (Essbase, Essbase Administration Services, Hyperion Provider Services, and Essbase Studio) and components (server, client, runtime client, API, and JAPI). When only some Essbase portfolio products are included in a patch release, the last released versions of the products that are not included in the patch are supported. Essbase Administration Services 11.1.2.4.037, Provider Services 11.1.2.4.039, and Essbase Studio 11.1.2.4.031 are supported for use with Essbase 11.1.2.4.039. Recommendation: After you apply a patch within the same release codeline, Oracle recommends as a best practice that you export the data from your databases, clear the data from the databases, and then reload the data. Unsupported Features MaxL Perl Module Will No Longer Be Supported in 12.2.1.3.0 MaxL Perl Module will not be supported starting with Release 12.2.1.3.0. Essbase Native Security Mode Is No Longer Supported Caution! Oracle strongly recommends not using Essbase native security mode because of security concerns. If you are currently using Essbase native security mode, you should convert Essbase Server to EPM System security mode and migrate users to EPM System security using Administration Services Console. See “Converting Essbase Server and Migrating Users to Shared Services” in the Oracle Essbase Administration Services Online Help. After you complete the conversion and migration tasks, Essbase security is managed as described in the Oracle Enterprise Performance Management System User Security Administration Guide. ========================================================================================= Why not share your experience about installing this patch ...

Check out the updated Enterprise Deployment Guide and the new Enterprise Deployment Workbook for Oracle Analytics Server (OAS). Enterprise Deployment Guide: The Enterprise Deployment Guide (EDG) provides detailed, validated instructions that help you plan, prepare, install, and configure a multi-host, secure, highly available, production topology for selected Oracle Fusion Middleware products. An updated copy is located in the Books section of the Oracle Analytics Server (OAS) Library. It is important to understand the tasks that need to be performed to prepare for an enterprise deployment. Check out the new section related to the Enterprise Deployment Workbook that can help you with your deployment. What is the Enterprise Deployment Workbook? The Enterprise Deployment Workbook is a spreadsheet that is used by architects, system engineers, database administrators, and others to plan and record all the details for an environment installation (such as server names, URLs, port numbers, installation paths, and other resources). The Oracle Analytics Server Enterprise Deployment workbook is available as a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet in the Oracle Fusion Middleware documentation library. It is available as a link on the Oracle Analytics Server page of the library. The Enterprise Deployment workbook serves as a single document that you can use to track input variables for the entire process, allowing for: Separation of tasks between architects, system engineers, database administrators, and other key organizational roles. Comprehensive planning before the implementation. Validation of planned decisions before the actual implementation. Consistency during implementation. A record of the environment for future use. Typical Use Case for Using the Workbook It is important to understand the roles and tasks involved in a typical use case of the Enterprise Deployment workbook. A typical use case for the Enterprise Deployment workbook involves the following roles and tasks, in preparation for an Oracle Fusion Middleware Enterprise Deployment: Architects read through the first five chapters of this guide, and fill in the corresponding sections of the workbook. The workbook is validated by other architects and system engineers. The architect uses the validated workbook to initiate network and system change requests with the system engineering departments. The Administrators and System Integrators who install and configure the software refer to the workbook and the subsequent chapters of this guide to perform the installation and configuration tasks.   Understanding the Contents of the Oracle Analytics Server Enterprise Deployment Workbook The following sections describe the contents of the Oracle Analytics Server Enterprise Deployment workbook. The workbook is divided into tabs, each containing a set of related variables and values that you need to install and configure the Enterprise Deployment topologies. Using the Start Tab Using the Hardware - Host Computers Tab Using the Network - Virtual Hosts & Ports Tab Using the Storage - Directory Variables Tab Using the Database - Connection Details Tab Who Should Use the Enterprise Deployment Workbook? The details of the Enterprise Deployment workbook are filled in by the individual or a team that is responsible for planning, procuring, or setting up each category of resources. The information in the Enterprise Deployment workbook is divided into categories. Depending on the structure of your organization and roles that are defined for your team, you can assign specific individuals in your organization to fill in the details of the workbook. Similarly, the information in each category can be assigned to the individual or team that is responsible for planning, procuring, or setting up each category of resources. For example, the workbook can be filled in, reviewed, and used by people in your organization that fill the following roles: Information Technology (IT) Director Architect System Administrator Network Engineer Database Administrator ============================================================================================= References: Enterprise Deployment Guide for Oracle Analytics Server Using the Enterprise Deployment Workbook Oracle Analytics Server (OAS) Library Oracle Analytics Server Enterprise Deployment workbook

Learn Faster with Learning Paths - Take Advantage of the Learning Library and Tutorials

Learning Paths What are they? What are the Benefits? Where can I find them? The Oracle Learning Library (OLL) is an online resource for content about Oracle products. You can access videos, tutorials, articles, demos, step-by-step instructions, and self-paced interactive learning modules all written by Oracle developers and trusted community members. Learning paths are available for EPM Cloud and Oracle Analytics Cloud. They typically teach a use case or an end-to-end example. They sequence information to answer a question or perform a task and some introduce concepts and getting started information. Note: For EPM Cloud customers, refer to the presentation given by Kathy Day, Angela Vermeer and Dave Roberts about EPM Cloud Learning Paths. Learning paths can include: Documentation Videos Oracle By Examples (OBE) Zip files Sample data Quizzes   Learning Path Benefits: The documentation contains details and  procedures for all the features for a business  process.The videos contain feature overviews and  procedures for specific tasks. Learning Paths tie together all the task  procedures to provide a step-by-step guide to accomplish a larger flow or set of  procedures. They also include links to pertinent documentation and videos for each task. Why are learning paths valuable? Learning paths are valuable because they offer: Free training Industry standard Combine learning styles - For example, learners can read documentation topics, work through hands-on  tutorials, use zip files with sample data, and watch video demos. Interactive Step-by-step instructions to perform a task Quizzes to assess learning Allow learners to progress at their own pace and track their progress   Where are learning paths located? Learning paths can be found in the following locations - refer to screenshots below for examples. Oracle Learning Library.- Search the library for a topic OR click on "View Learning Paths". Apply filters to narrow your search. EPM Cloud - Learning Paths EPM Business Process Tutorials - Select a Business Process to access the Help Center and then click on the Tutorials tab Oracle Analytics Cloud Tutorials Oracle Analytics Cloud - Learning Paths   What environments are required to complete a learning path? If the learning path consists of a use case or an end-to-end example, you will  need an environment with a sample application installed, and you may need to upload a snapshot with data. If the learning path sequences documentation and videos, you do not need an  environment.   =========================================================================================== References: Presentation - presented by Kathy Day, Angela Vermeer and Dave Roberts - This presentation relates to EPM CLOUD.

This is the historical behavior, before a recent change was made to separate the output folders between Snapshots and PDFs. A new MBean property was added to specify if the Snapshot path is used for PDF external ouput: "UseSnapshotSaveAsPathForExternalPDFPath = true/false", by default this is true, which will keep the previous, original behavior.
