    There is nothing about REST? (As a replacement for the very ugly XLMA stuff)
    Implies Oracle 12.2 also 19.0 (essencenly only the new branding)?
    (I ask that because of the life time support for Oracle DB versions)
    Thak you and Regards

    Will 11.2 still have EAS console for essbase? Will it still include MaxL and csc scripts?
  • admin Friday, July 26, 2019
    Hi Kyle;

    I reached out to product management and they stated that there is no change in the version of Essbase with the EPM 11.2 release. Everything that is available in will continue to be available in 11.2.

    Please keep in mind that Oracle Safe Harbor applies. Stay tuned for more information about the exact details of 11.2 once it is officially released.

    Thank you.

  • Jared Wong Thursday, August 8, 2019
    Hi Tanya,

    With Essbase remaining at, will that version be certified for Windows 2016 and the other 3rd party certifications mentioned?

    Thank you!
  • Jared Wong Thursday, August 8, 2019
    Additionally, will Essbase support JDK 1.8?

  • admin Thursday, August 15, 2019
    Hi Jared;

    I reached out to the product manager and below are his responses:

    Essbase with EPM 11.2 will support the same matrix as 11.2.

    11.2 for windows is focusing on Windows 2019. Matrix is finalizing shortly.

    Once 11.2 is released, everything will be posted to the matrix regarding support and compatibility.

    Thank you.
