Supported Paths to this Release

You can upgrade to EPM System Release 11.1.2.3 from the following releases:

Note: For upgrading instructions, see the Oracle Enterprise Performance Management System Installation and Configuration Guide, “Upgrading EPM System Products.

Table 1. Supported Paths to this Release

Upgrade Path From Release ...To Release 11.1.2.3

11.1.2.x

Apply the maintenance release to Release 11.1.2.3.

For Oracle Hyperion Financial Close Management, applying the maintenance release is supported only from Release 11.1.2.1 and 11.1.2.2.

11.1.1.4.x

Upgrade to Release 11.1.2.3.

Release 11.1.1.0.x to 11.1.1.3.x

Apply the maintenance release to Release 11.1.1.4 and then upgrade to Release 11.1.2.3.

Release 9.3.3.x

Upgrade to Release 11.1.2.2 and then apply the maintenance release to Release 11.1.2.3.

An environment that includes multiple releases, which can include an environment with one instance of Oracle Hyperion Shared Services or an environment with two instances of Shared Services

See "Upgrading from an Environment with Multiple Releases" in the "Upgrading EPM System Products" chapter in the Oracle Enterprise Performance Management System Installation and Configuration Guide.

Note: If you are starting from Release 9.2.0.3+, 9.3.0.x, 9.3.1.x (except for Oracle Essbase 9.3.1.4.1, 9.3.1.5, 9.3.1.6, and 9.3.1.7), or 11.1.1.x, Oracle recommends that you first upgrade to Release 11.1.1.3, then apply the maintenance release to Release 11.1.1.4, and then upgrade to Release 11.1.2.3. If you are starting from an earlier release, Oracle recommends that you upgrade to the highest level release that directly supports upgrade from your starting release.

Security Synchronization between Essbase and Shared Services was removed in Essbase Release 9.3, starting with Release 9.3.1.4.1. Essbase and Oracle Hyperion Shared Services Release 11.1.1.3, however, still synchronize security information. For this reason, if you are using Essbase Release 9.3.1.4.1, 9.3.1.5, 9.3.1.6, or 9.3.1.7, you must first upgrade all products to Release 9.3.3, then upgrade to Release 11.1.2.2, and then apply the maintenance release to Release 11.1.2.3.

  • 16463772 -- In Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 and 8, the text in table rows may have truncated descenders. As a result, letters such as lowercase “g”, “j” and “p” may not be displayed correctly. This problem does not occur with Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 or in Mozilla Firefox.

  • 16224034 -- In Internet Explorer 9, the option "Save as My Workspace Page" is missing from the “Save As” dialog.

  • 16045749 -- For the ARM menu item to be displayed, Financial Close Management must be installed, and the logged-on user must be provisioned for Oracle Hyperion Financial Close Management.

  • 15963916 -- Setting Preferences for the WORLD group is not working.

  • 14751808 -- Emails are not sent from EPM Workspace if network authentication is required.

  • 14231774 -- Sometimes the “Show Scrollbars” option fails in Workspace Pages.

  • 13971124 -- When selecting reports for a new Financial Reporting book, sometimes an already-added report is displayed in the selection list.

  • 13961560 -- Sometimes when the “More” link is displayed on the Home Page for listing additional My Workspace Pages and Shared Workspace Pages, the link is not active.

  • 13872149 -- When launching OBIEE 10.1.3.4.2 from EPM Workspace 11.1.2.2, a message about the inability to load blank.html may occur. To resolve this problem, edit the httpd.conf that EPM System Web server uses. Just below the line that reads:

    RewriteRule ^/interop/bpmstatic/(.*) /epmstatic/bpmui/$1 [PT]

    add this line:

    RewriteRule ^/workspace/thirdparty/bindows/html/blank.html /epmstatic/bpmui/thirdparty/bindows/html/blank.html [PT]

    This directive must be on one line, starting with RewriteRule and ending with [PT].

  • 13870280 -- In Mozilla Firefox 10, an error message may be displayed when saving EPM Workspace Pages with double-byte characters in the page name. Ignore the message; the page is saved correctly.

  • 13857317 -- Sometimes, users cannot add Production Reporting jobs or job output to an EPM Workspace page.

  • 13799595 -- Compatibility View must be disabled for EPM Workspace. By default, Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 enables Compatibility View for Intranet sites. When Compatibility View is enabled with EPM Workspace, problems such as truncated dialogs, incorrect object selection, and tree views expanded unexpectedly may occur. Also, error messages are displayed when Oracle Hyperion Financial Management and Planning applications launch.

    The default Compatibility View Setting in Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 cannot be changed for hosts. To resolve this problem, clear all boxes in the Compatibility View Settings dialog. This ensures that Compatibility View is disabled for EPM Workspace. To enable and disable Compatibility View, Administrators can create group policy settings using the policy name “Use Policy List of Quirks Mode” at the path Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Compatibility View. See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg699401.aspx.

  • 13733894 -- For Mozilla Firefox version 4 or higher, you must install the Mozilla Firefox XUL add-on to view the EPM Workspace logon page. The add-on uses XUL technology when Mozilla Firefox connects to the EPM System Web server. The add-on can be installed and configured by the end user, or an administrator can configure the add-on before distributing it to users.

    For users to install and configure the XUL add-on:

    1. Install the Remote XUL Manager add-on from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/remote-xul-manager/ into Mozilla Firefox, and then restart Mozilla Firefox.

    2. In Mozilla Firefox, select Tools, then Web Developer, and then Remote XUL Manager to open the Remote XUL Manager dialog.

    3. In Remote XUL Manager, click Add..., and then add an entry for each host or domain name the EPM System Web server uses, then select File, and then select Close. For example, a typical deployment might have a test EPM System Web server at epmtest.example.com and a production server at epm.example.com. The Remote XUL Manager can be configured with both host names (epmtest.example.com and epm.example.com), or with just the domain name (for example, example.com). If the EPM System Web server is accessed using a short host name (for example, http://myserver/) or an IP address (for example, http://10.12.1.2/), add these names or IP addresses.

    For Administrators to install, configure, and distribute the add-on to users:

    1. Perform Steps 1 through 3 from the user procedure to install and configure the XUL add-on.

    2. Open the Remote XUL Manager dialog, then select File, then Generate Installer, then select the domains, optionally customize a message for users, and then generate an XPI file.

    3. Distribute the XPI file using any convenient method, such as copying the XPI file to a shared network location or by email.

    4. Direct users to open Mozilla Firefox, and then drag the XPI file into the Mozilla Firefox window. In some cases, Mozilla Firefox will need to be restarted.

      A standard message or the message you specified is displayed with the list of domains, and then Remote XUL Manager uninstalls itself from the users' machines. EPM Workspace then functions normally.

  • 13794606 -- When using Microsoft Internet Explorer 9, users cannot open objects from the Recently Opened list. To resolve this issue, log off EPM Workspace, and then log back on.

  • 13793825 -- When using Internet Explorer 9 with a bidirectional language, the Batch Scheduling Wizard and the Book Editor display a short "Selected Items" list when the Wizard is first opened. Resizing the browser window displays the UI correctly, making the Selected Items list easier to navigate.

  • 13769862, 13714812 -- In EPM Workspace Pages, layout areas that contain Favorites, Alerts/Exceptions, Applications, or URLs have nonfunctional Edit and Launch buttons. To change the URL layout area to use a different URL, the layout area can be removed, and then added again.

  • 13769770 -- When editing Workspace Pages, if the Data Source field is not fully visible, highlight the text and scroll to view the full path.

  • 13719326 -- If Oracle BI EE is integrated into EPM Workspace, logging off and logging back on to EPM Workspace may cause the browser to close unexpectedly. To resolve this problem, close the browser after selecting Logoff from the File menu. This error does not occur if a product that uses Oracle Hyperion Reporting and Analysis is configured.

  • 13714992 -- When using EPM Workspace pages with bidirectional language locales, resizing layout areas does not work correctly. To resolve this problem, edit the page in English, and then view the page in the bidirectional language locale.

  • 13714759 -- When using bidirectional locales, layout areas may not be positioned correctly when creating EPM Workspace pages.

  • 13709641 -- When using bidirectional locales in Explore, column order cannot be changed.

  • 13704836-- When using the Explore feature to browse the repository in Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 and 8 with a bidirectional language, the display does not scroll correctly. To resolve this problem, use Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 or Firefox instead.

  • 13704532 -- When using bidirectional locales, adding layout areas to EPM Workspace pages results in stacked and overlapping layout areas.

  • 13704493 -- When using bidirectional locales, dragging content to layout areas in EPM Workspace pages fails. To resolve this issue, drag the content to an empty space on the EPM Workspace page. This action creates a new layout area that contains the dragged content.

  • 13704443 -- Intermittently, new EPM Workspace pages are not displayed in the Home Page Workspace Pages layout area. To resolve this issue, log off EPM Workspace, and then logon again.

  • 13704310 -- When using bidirectional locales, moving layout areas during EPM Workspace page design fails.

  • 13107982 -- The right mouse context menu does not work correctly when editing a new EPM Workspace page in the Arabic locale. To place layout areas in a new EPM Workspace page, use the main Edit menu to insert layout areas (for example, Favorites, or Application list).

  • 12865271 -- When using Mozilla Firefox, users cannot log off after opening a Financial Reporting report in PDF and a Planning application.

  • 10359325 -- Sometimes when you assign user or group default preferences using Manage Preferences and then select Document as the default Start Page, the following error message is displayed:

    The startup document specified does not exist in the repository. Select a new startup document on the General Preferences tab.

    You can ignore this error message.

  • 10239838 -- For the Home Page, objects are not added to Recently Opened when the parameter bpm.logoff=false is used in the URL.

  • 9788411 -- When an administrator selects a user in Manage Preferences, then clicks Next, the Manage Preferences Wizard does not display the user's preferences correctly. Specifically, the type of startup content (for example, Document or Explore) is displayed, but not the content details (for example, document MyReport, or folder /Users/MyName).

  • 8940113 -- If EPM Workspace servers are in a clustered configuration, changes to EPM Workspace server settings take effect only after the clustered EPM Workspace Web applications are restarted.

  • 7483255 -- If you edit an EPM Workspace page by selecting File, and then Save As, you save the changes to a new EPM Workspace page and the existing EPM Workspace page. To save changes only to the new EPM Workspace page, open the existing page, and before making any changes to the page, select File, then Save As, then save the page with a new name, and then open the new page and edit it.

  • 6585295 -- In certain instances a tree with content wider than the visible area displays scrollbars that have no effect. To resolve this issue, move the vertical splitter to the right to resize the visible area, allowing for more content.

  • 6581290 -- When Mozilla Firefox is used with Linux or Apple Macintosh OS X operating systems, clicking the mouse to select an object in Microsoft Internet Explorer sometimes selects the wrong object. To resolve this issue, you must install and use the Liberation family of TrueType fonts.

    For Linux, the recommended font package is the Liberation-fonts package. This package can be installed using the command:

    yum install liberation-fonts

    The X Windows server must be restarted for the change to take effect.

    For Apple Macintosh OS X, copy the Liberation fonts to the user's $HOME/Library/Fonts directory.

  • 6566264 -- In Internet Explorer 7 and later, menus sometimes overlap or have unnecessary scroll bars. Internet Explorer 7 introduced a feature to enable users to control whether Web applications can open windows of any size. By default, this feature prohibits Web applications from opening windows of any size, causing menus to display incorrectly in some circumstances. To display menus correctly:

    1. Select Tools, and then Internet Options.

    2. On the Security tab, select the Web application zone, and then click Custom Level.

    3. From Miscellaneous, scroll to Allow script-initiated windows without size or position constraints, and then click Enable.

    4. Click OK, then Yes, and then click OK again.

    2. On the Security tab, select the Web application's zone, and then select Custom Level.

    3. Under Downloads, navigate to Automatic prompting for file downloads, and then click Enable.

    4. Click OK, then Yes, and then click OK again.

  • 6540172 -- Group preferences are applied only to current group members, not to users who are added to the group after the group preferences are set.

  • 6539333 -- When creating Interactive Reporting documents with the New Document wizard, you can select a file to which you do not have access (such as a file imported by another user). If you select such a file, you get an error message that you do not have permission to access the document, and the New Document wizard closes.

  • 6537899 -- In Mozilla Firefox, documents in common spreadsheets and Microsoft Word processing formats open in a separate window. The documents are not embedded in the browser like they are when using Microsoft Internet Explorer.

  • 10326386 -- Arabic characters may be displayed incorrectly in a Financial Reporting Studio grid even if Financial Reporting Studio is installed on an Arabic client. To resolve this problem, change the font manually.

  • 10279716 -- If you select Save As after modifying an existing report, and then rename the modified report, the report name and location are not updated until the modified report is closed and reopened.

  • 9315489 -- The Financial Reporting Studio logon page uses the default Microsoft Windows font to render the logon page characters. To view Korean characters rendered correctly in a Japanese operating system, for example, you must change the default system font for your Japanese machine to Korean.

    Some common system dialog boxes are rendered using the default language. These are Microsoft Windows dialog boxes that use the default language font and not the Financial Reporting user's language.

    The best practice is to use a foreign language operating system that matches the user's preferred language, or to set the default Microsoft Windows language to the preferred language.

  • 9312531 -- If Financial Reporting books contain external Microsoft Word documents that contain the FRExecute function, then the book Table of Contents page numbering may be incorrect. To resolve this issue, insert page breaks in the Microsoft Word documents containing the FRExecute functions.

  • 9113605 -- The GetCell function may not retrieve the correct data if the target cell has conditional formatting applied.

  • 8439336 -- Multiple logon dialog boxes are displayed on the export section from EPM Workspace to Microsoft Excel if authentication through SiteMinder is installed.

  • 7452671 -- When using Mozilla Firefox 2 browser with EPM Workspace, the widgets temporarily do not respond to slider input in the following cases:

    • Viewing the widgets for the first time when the document is opened

    • After viewing LiveCharts that are positioned outside a certain footprint

    To resolve this issue, navigate to another section of the document and then return.

  • 7452638 -- In Mozilla Firefox, Live Charts outside a footprint of approximately 8 1/2 inches wide or 3 1/2 inches high in the Dashboard workspace are not drawn correctly. If you are deploying the dashboard on Mozilla Firefox, design the dashboard within this footprint constraint.

  • 7342404 -- On Linux/UNIX platforms, sometimes loading the ODBC driver for Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition fails, causing query processing to fail. To resolve this issue, run Data Access Service on a Microsoft Windows platform.

  • 7317044 -- Widget transparency is not supported in export output. The widget footprint appears as white regardless of the background color of the dashboard.

  • 7204915 -- You cannot stop DAS after processing certain types of BQY documents.

  • 7182583 -- Some widget-specific Script Editor context-sensitive Help file links do not work. Attempting to open them generates a “file not found” message. To access these Help topics, open the Help file from the Help menu and search by name.

  • 7173000 -- Sometimes opening BQY files in Smart Space fails. If this occurs, add the following command to your startup script:

    ActiveDocument.Sections["Results"].Activate()

    This command switches to the Results section when opening the document.

  • 7117551 -- There is no Object Model functionality for the EventScript on the Slider Widget. You cannot use dynamic creation, reading or writing for this script event.

  • 7111535 -- The Gradient-Horz (horizontal) and Gradient-Vert (vertical) properties are not applicable for Live Line Charts even though the properties dialog box displays them.

  • 7036539 -- For an ODBC/ODBC MERANT Oracle Wire Protocol driver connection, the timestamp WITH TIME ZONE data type is recognized as a string. To resolve this issue, manually set the data type.

  • 6982405 -- The data model connection property “username” returns a null value. The Oracle Hyperion Interactive Reporting Web Client retrieves the user name from the Object Model when the user name is specified using the Object Model, or when the OCE/Query section setting prompts for the user name. In all other scenarios, the user name and password is read by the server and sent to the database. For security reasons, the user name is never sent to the client.

  • 6614851 -- Interactive Reporting does not start on systems using 64-bit kernel mode on AIX 5.3 ML6.

    The issue with AIX 5.3 ML6 affects all current and previously released versions of System 9 (through 9.3.1) and all versions of Hyperion Performance Suite 8. There is an IBM compatibility issue with ML6 in 64-bit kernel mode. IBM may also refer to 5.3 ML6 as 5300-06.

    Because versions 8.5 and System 9 supports AIX 5.3, customers could assume that this includes all Technology Level (TL) and Maintenance Level (ML) levels. This notice is to inform you that 5.3 ML6 is not supported in versions 8.5 and System 9.

    Action Required: If you have already installed AIX 5.3 ML6, you must upgrade to AIX 5.3 ML7. IBM may also refer to 5.3 ML7 as 5300-07. Alternatively, you may change the kernel mode to 32-bit if using 5.3 ML6. However, Oracle recommends upgrading to AIX 5.3 ML7.

  • 6588245 -- When you set a Pivot Cume data function of “Function of Percent of Row,” the percentage of the grand total is returned.

  • 6583475 -- An unknown error is displayed when an individual member value is dragged into the data layout from an SAP BW alternate hierarchy. This issue is specific to the OLAP Query section in an SAP BW data source and occurs only with an SAP BW GUI 6.4 OLE DB for OLAP (ODBO) driver.

  • 6540929 -- When exporting the Report section of a BQY file to an existing file in Microsoft Excel (.xls format), the export fails if the target file is locked. However, users are not alerted with an error message when this occurs. This is not an issue for Results or Table sections.

  • 6540605 -- At least one Results or Table column must be present to enable the shortcut menu that contains the option to add or modify a computed item. When no columns are present, select the menu option Actions, and then Add Computed Item... to create a computed item.

  • 6534426 -- You cannot control the Layer or Layering function when one object is an embedded browser. This is a limitation of Windowed controls and non-Windowed controls where Windowed controls, like an embedded browser, cannot go behind non-Windowed controls like shapes or graphics.

  • 6533806 -- Special characters that are not allowed in naming JavaScript identifiers or functions must not be used in column names and control names. For example, do not use white spaces, “ |”, “$”, “” (euro), or “\” (backslashes) (same as half-width Yen and half-width Won). Using such characters in control names is not supported and can cause document rendering useless in EPM Workspace.

  • 6533573 -- Incorrect SQL is generated using outer join ODBC options in OCE. This is a known issue with MSSQL and nested outer joins when the Use Outer Join Escape Syntax option is selected. If nested outer joins are needed, clear the option.

  • 12820911 -- The sample program included in the online Help runs correctly with Production Reporting on an Oracle database, but fails when using Production Reporting with ODBC.

  • 6940273 -- If a report includes two master queries from two different DDO data sources, Oracle Hyperion SQR Production Reporting Studio results in UAE when attempting to edit the second master query.

Reporting and Analysis Framework

  • 16342444 -- Before an application is opened, sometimes rights for users assigned the Reviewer role are changed from None to All.

  • 16043426 -- Manage Job Schedules lists schedules owned by several users, instead of just the user viewing the schedule.

  • 14549398 -- Users cannot retrieve Standard Form on Microsoft Windows-based hosts using Microsoft Internet Explorer.

  • 13814094 -- Some dialogs accessed from the Administer menu include a Reset button. Clicking this button causes the dialog to become blank. To resolve this issue, close the dialog and then open it again.

  • 13438034 -- Load balancing is not supported for generic jobs across machines in a distributed environment. To resolve this problem:

    1. Stop Reporting and Analysis Framework Agent Services.

    2. Go to Repository Database and then open V8_PRODUCT table.

    3. Assign the same names for same-type products.

      For example, suppose the system is configured to have two Brio Query products on two servers. If one product is named BrioQuery1, and the other is named BrioQuery2, load balancing fails. To repair load balancing between these two hosts enter the same name for each product in the NAME field in V8_PRODUCT table.

    4. Start Reporting and Analysis Framework Agent Services.

  • 12823826 -- The default value of the Oracle Hyperion Reporting and Analysis Framework Cache property “Cache Folders For” is 60. This property specifies the number of seconds to cache folders.

  • 12316913 -- The API method com.sqribe.rm.SessionFactory.getInstance(String account, String password, String rmhostAddress) was replaced with com.sqribe.rm.SessionFactory.getInstance(String cssToken, String gsmHosts, String gsmPorts) in 11.1.2.1. Both functions have the same signature (getInstance(String, String, String)) but different behavior. After upgrading to EPM Workspace, Release 11.1.2.1, applications created prior to Release 11.1.2.1 that use method getInstance(String account, String password, String rmhostAddress) now use the new method, and return java.lang.NumberFormatException. To resolve this problem, use other methods that have different signatures, for example, getInstance(String account, String password, String rmhostAddress, int port).

  • 11695328 -- Administrators may notice a larger virtual memory footprint for the Reporting and Analysis Framework Web Application and possibly other Java components of Oracle Fusion Performance Management, Release 11.1.2.1 as well. If insufficient memory is available on your system, try reducing the maximum heap setting. The optimum heap setting varies based on system usage. For 100 users, for example, a maximum heap setting of 512 MB for the Reporting and Analysis Framework Web application may be sufficient.

  • 9194960 -- If Reporting and Analysis Framework is disabled in the Enabled Products dialog, disable any other products that depend on Reporting and Analysis Framework, such as Explore.

  • 9089790 -- The Job Service Job Limit property works only after you restart Reporting and Analysis Framework.

  • 8875550 -- On Windows platforms, when replicating common Reporting and Analysis Framework services and using the network shared folder for the repository location, run the Oracle Hyperion Reporting and Analysis Framework agent windows service under a user account with sufficient privileges for the network shared folder (not under a Local System account).

  • 7555645 -- Due to shared resource files between certain features and functions in EPM Workspace, the following languages have English and translated portions in the Administrator screens: Russian, Turkish, Danish and Swedish.

  • 7552741 -- In Korean, a document’s modified time is displayed as a.m. or p.m. on the search result page.

  • 6959959 -- If a security agent with a cookie-based session management mechanism is used, opening Microsoft Office documents from Microsoft Internet Explorer sometimes prompts for credentials. This occurs because Microsoft Office issues an HTTP OPTIONS request when attempting to open documents. This OPTIONS request does not contain the same session-related cookies as requests made from the browser, so the security provider issues the prompt for credentials. See http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb;en-us;838028 for details about how Microsoft Office and Microsoft Internet Explorer open documents.

    To resolve this issue, reconfigure the security provider by disabling authentication for OPTIONS requests.

Search

  • 13256842 -- Microsoft Office 2007 documents (.docx, .xlsx, .pptx file formats) are indexed for Search by Metadata only. Searching by document contents for these files is not available.

Smart View

  • 6871481 -- If an Oracle Hyperion Interactive Reporting document contains non-unique Oracle Essbase members in a CubeQuery section, then it cannot be exported to a Oracle Hyperion Smart View for Office client using the Query Ready data export option, or using the Launch Smart View menu command.

Web Analysis

  • 16581538, 16489948 -- No hybrid members stored in an Oracle 11G database are displayed in reports.

  • 9897495 -- Exported Web Analysis reports do not open in Microsoft PowerPoint 2010. To resolve this issue, save the exported file to your hard drive, change its extension to .html and then open it with Microsoft PowerPoint 2010.

  • 9320523 -- Shortcut menu items are truncated when using Oracle Hyperion Web Analysis Studio with Microsoft Windows Vista or Microsoft Windows 7 client operating systems if Microsoft Windows Vista theme or Microsoft Windows 7 theme are set. To resolve this problem, switch to Microsoft Windows Classic theme.

  • 9210933 -- There is a limitation for editing data in reports built against a BSO cube with a Typed Measures enabled outline. It is not possible to edit data if Date or Text Measures members are selected in Dimension Browser.

  • 8527669 -- ARUUtil does not create user preferences when regional settings are set to Turkish.

  • 6575786 -- Refresh and Refresh All do not work if two pages of an Oracle Hyperion Web Analysis report are imported sequentially. To resolve this issue, use the All Pages option to import multiple report pages.

Documentation Updates

Accessing EPM System Product Documentation

The most recent version of each EPM System product guide is available for downloading or viewing from the EPM System Documentation area of the OTN website (http://www.oracle.com/technology/documentation/epm.html). You can also use the EPM System Documentation Portal (http://www.oracle.com/us/solutions/ent-performance-bi/technical-information-147174.html), which also links to EPM Supported Platform Matrices, My Oracle Support, and other information resources.

Deployment-related documentation is also available from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud website (http://edelivery.oracle.com/EPD/WelcomePage/get_form).

Individual product guides are available for download on the Oracle Technology Network website only.

Copying and Pasting Code Snippets from PDFs

When you cut and paste code snippets from a PDF file, some characters can be lost during the paste operation, making the code snippet invalid. Workaround: Cut and paste from the HTML version of the document.

Location of Web Application Deployment

The location of Web application deployment has changed. All references to this location in the documentation should be updated from:

MIDDLEWARE_HOME/user_projects/epmsystem1/domains/domainName

to:

MIDDLEWARE_HOME/user_projects/domains/EPMSystem/servers/serverName/logs

where serverName is the name of the WebLogic domain.

Location of ODL Logging for Web Applications

The ODL logging location for Web applications has changed. All references in the documentation should be updated from:

MIDDLEWARE_HOME/user_projects/epmsystem1/domains/domainName

to:

MIDDLEWARE_HOME/user_projects/domains/EPMSystem/servers/serverName/logs

where serverName is the name of the WebLogic managed server.

Passing Data Using Streams Instead of Files

The documentation for the “Passing Data Using Streams Instead of Files” property has been updated in the Oracle Hyperion Reporting and Analysis Framework Administrator's Guide as follows:

This property alters the way data is transmitted between services and the Web application.

If yes is selected, servlets retrieve files from services using streamed input and output (I/O) and direct connection instead of temporary file system storage. Data is transferred over a separate socket connection between the Repository Services and the servlets.

If no is selected, data is transferred and stored in a file (or in memory if the data is less than 500 KB) for servlets and the Service Broker.

In general, you should enable this option because streamed I/O is more efficient. If your system has a firewall between the servlets and the services, however, you should disable this option since it will randomly allocate the use of any available port on the service host. With the option disabled, files are sent directly through the Reporting and Analysis service ports already in use instead of creating new socket connections for the file transfer.

Repository Item Names

When entering names for items in the repository such as files and folders, you can use uppercase and lowercase letters and numbers. Spaces cannot be used at the beginning or end of folder names. File and folder names can only use alphanumeric characters and underscores.

EPM Workspace

Replacing the Logon Panel Image

The procedure in “Replacing the Logon Panel Image,” in the Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management Workspace Administrator's Guide, fails when using Microsoft IIS with Weblogic.

Financial Reporting

Multiple Financial Reporting Studio Versions on One Client Machine

Starting with Financial Reporting Studio, Release 11.1.2.3, users can install more than one version of Financial Reporting Studio (for example a test and a development version) on one client machine. The installed versions of Financial Reporting Studio are displayed in the Microsoft Windows Start menu folder and shortcuts, as well as the Uninstall panel.

Before accessing one of multiple Financial Reporting Studio versions, make sure that the versions are installed on the client machine.

Note:

Each Financial Reporting Studio version installed on a client machine must be installed in a different directory.

To install Financial Reporting Studio:

  1. In Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management Workspace, select Tools, then Install, and then Financial Reporting Studio.

  2. After the download is complete, close all browsers and then run the Financial Reporting Studio installer as an administrator.

Note:

If a machine has multiple versions of Financial Reporting Studio installed, only one release can be accessed at a time.

To access a Financial Reporting Studio version:

  1. From the Microsoft Windows Start menu, select Oracle, then Financial Reporting Studio <version number>, and then Register Financial Reporting Studio <version number>, where version number is the Financial Reporting Studio release to use.

  2. From the Microsoft Windows Start menu, select Oracle, then the folder Financial Reporting Studio <version number> and then Financial Reporting Studio <version number>, to launch the Oracle Hyperion Financial Reporting Studio version registered in the previous step.

Variance and Variance/Percent Functions Results for #missing and #error

Replace the current descriptions in the sections in “Variance / Var” and “Variance Percent / VarPer” in the Oracle Hyperion Financial Reporting Studio User's Guide for #missing and #error results with the following information:

Although every formula can have different results depending on the scenario, the following is the expected behavior when the functions return #missing or #error results:

  • Formulas with a single reference to a #missing value return #error

  • Formulas with a single reference to a #error value return #error

  • Formulas with a reference to a #missing value and a #error value return #error

  • Compound formulas with a reference to one or more numeric values (for example, non-error and non-missing) are evaluated even though there are other references to #error or #missing values.

Cover Page File Restrictions

The list of files types for cover pages in “Adding a Cover Page” in the Oracle Hyperion Financial Reporting Workspace User's Guide has changed. Currently, Microsoft Word files and PDF files are the only possible choices.

The Datasource() Function and Planning Database Connections

Add the following note to the description of the Datasource() function in the Oracle Hyperion Financial Reporting Studio User's Guide:

Note:

When using Datasource() with Oracle Hyperion Planning database connections, the function does not return the server name.

Web Analysis

Export Excel Wizard

In the Oracle Hyperion Web Analysis Workspace User's Guide, in Step 6 of “Export Excel Wizard,” disregard the sentence “For each selected view, a preview of the exported view is displayed.” This feature is not currently available.

In that same procedure, Step 6, part “a” should state:

View the list of check box items for a page dimension, and then select the box next to each page dimension member to include in the export.
