Patch 24466619

This is a patch set update (PSU). This patch set update is a partial installation. It
replaces files in the existing installation, and does not require a full
installation. This patch set update is cumulative and does include fixes
from previous patches.

New Features in
Financial Reporting Web Studio enhancements to achievemore parity with the Windows Studio functionality:

  • Conditional formatting and suppression
  • Auto-Calculation
  • Ability to Save Objects
  • Related Content
  • Row/Column templates

Removal of Support for Financial Reporting Studio Desktop Client:

Oracle is committed to providing a simple and intuitive experience to the users of the service. To achieve this goal, Financial Reporting Web Studio, a component available since the release, will be established as the only tool for designing and building reports. As a result, Financial Reporting Studio desktop client support will be fully transitioned to Financial Reporting Web Studio, tentatively in mid-2017. With a planned mid-2017 update, Financial Reporting Studio desktop client is planned to no longer be distributed.

Starting with the release, Financial Reporting Web Studio will achieve functional parity with most of the capabilities provided with Financial Reporting Studio desktop client. You will be able to create new reports and modify existing reports using Financial Reporting Web Studio.

Oracle recommends that you transition to using Financial Reporting Web Studio at the earliest opportunity.
