The following announcements and considerations are outlined in the upcoming Oracle Account Reconciliation Cloud (ARCS) update:
Oracle Account Reconciliation Cloud (ARCS)
Monthly Update Schedule:
Oracle will begin applying the latest updates to EPM Cloud Test environments starting at 22:00 UTC-8 (2:00pm Pacific Time) Friday, January 5, 2018 and to Production environments on Friday, January 19, 2017, also starting at 22:00 UTC-8. The updates will be applied to your EPM Cloud environments during the first subsequent Daily Maintenance.
The Oracle Help Center, which provides access to updated documentation, will also be available on January 5, 2018.
NOTE: Account Reconciliation Cloud does not support migration of snapshots from the latest service version to an earlier service version (for example, when moving snapshots between test and production pods during the window when test is upgraded before production.) Migration between the same versions will still be supported. Some objects, such as Profiles, may still be moved from the latest to an earlier version outside of migration snapshots by exporting them from the latest service version and importing them into the earlier version.New Features:
- Detailed Information Now Available in Transaction Matching Balancing Report
- Relocate EPM Cloud Environments from One Identity Domain to Another
- Migrating From On-Premise Account Reconciliation Manager to Account Reconciliation Cloud
- New EPM Getting Started Guides
Removal of Support:
- Enhanced User Experience in Reconciliation Compliance - As of early calendar year, 2018, the old method of accessing the Reconciliation List, Transactions List, and Profiles List will no longer be available. Enhancements to the Reconciliation Compliance user interface that were introduced several months ago provided a more intuitive and improved user experience, including Reconciliation, Transaction and Profile List Views, Manage Reports, and common use of a filter bar across multiple EPM Cloud services. These changes provide you with quick, easy navigation.
