Hyperion Essbase Patch Set Update 11.1.2.4.021 is Available

By: Tanya Heise | Sr Principal Technical Support Engineer

The Hyperion Product Management recently advised the release of Patch Set Updates (PSU) for Oracle Hyperion Essbase 11.1.2.4.x.

These PSU downloads are available from the  My Oracle Support > Patches & Updates section.

Hyperion Essbase Server 11.1.2.4.021

Hyperion Essbase Client 11.1.2.4.021

UNSUPPORTED FEATURES:

  • 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.
    • 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.
    • Review the readme for more information.

RECOMMENDATIONS:

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 11.1.2.4.020, Provider Services 11.1.2.4.020, and Essbase Studio 11.1.2.4.016 are supported for use with Essbase 11.1.2.4.021.

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.

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.
