The following announcements and considerations are outlined in the upcoming Oracle Profitability and Cost Management Cloud  (PCMCS) update:

Oracle Profitability and Cost Management Cloud  (PCMCS)
November 2017

Monthly Update Schedule:

Oracle will apply the latest updates to your test environment on Friday, November 3, 2017 and to your production environment on Friday, November 17, 2017. The update will be applied during your normal daily maintenance window.

Announcements and New Features:

  • Express Editing for Calculation Rules  
  • Adding Alias Tables with Dimension Management  
  • A New REST API Automatically Generates Program Documentation Reports 

Defects Fixed:

  • 26789795 - Profitability and Cost Management Cloud trace allocation reports are now generated as expected.
  • 26754786 - Aliases now are displaying correctly in model views and rule set contexts.
  • 26753971 - You can now load multiple dimension files with EPM Automate.

Removal of Support for Financial Reporting Studio Desktop Client:

  • Oracle is committed to providing a simple and intuitive user experience. To achieve this, Financial Reporting Web Studio, available since March 2016, will become the only environment for designing and building reports.

  • Oracle is providing additional time for users to transition from Financial Reporting Desktop Studio to Financial Reporting Web Studio. Tentative plans call for functional parity between Financial Reporting Web Studio and Financial Reporting Desktop Studio in early 2018, at which time, support for the desktop Studio will transition to the Web Studio and distribution of the Desktop Studio will cease.

  • Oracle recommends that you transition to using Financial Reporting Web Studio at the earliest opportunity. Please send questions and concerns to Oracle using the Provide Feedback option in the service.

Considerations:

  • Mozilla Firefox  
  • Microsoft Excel Known Issue That Affects Smart View for Office  
  • Oracle Profitability and Cost Management Cloud Supports Smart View Private Connections  
  • Avoid Special Characters in Artifact Names, Including Calculation Rules
