Announcing JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools Release 9.2.5.3 and Application Enhancements that Drive Business Transformation



What are we Announcing?

Today we are announcing the availability of EnterpriseOne Tools Release 9.2.5.3, which supports EnterpriseOne Applications 9.2. Oracle JD Edwards continues to invest in digital transformation, user experience, system automation, security, and open platforms by delivering Tools Release 9.2.5.3.

We are also announcing the availability of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Applications enhancements that make JD Edwards applications easier to use, more powerful, and more comprehensive in their support of our customers’ business processes. These customer-driven product improvements focus on eliminating pain points by providing more flexible business process configuration and by simplifying the user experience. In addition, legislative, regulatory, and localization enhancements are available that help customers maintain compliance in all the countries they operate in across the globe.

Combined, these JD Edwards Tools and Applications enhancements empower companies on their business transformation journey.





    Digital Transformation

    Digital transformation platform enables you to participate in the digital economy, transform business processes, and adopt new technologies. It greatly simplifies how you integrate with third-party systems and cloud services, receive real-time accurate data from Internet of Things devices, and build alternative user interfaces such as mobile applications. JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools features that drive digital transformation ultimately transform how you use your EnterpriseOne system and enhances its value to your business.

    The following enhancements support customers on their continuous path to digital transformation:

  • Select Multiple Rows in a Form Request

    This feature expands the options for the orchestration designer when selecting and operating on grid rows in a form request.

    Form requests are a fundamental element of orchestrations, enabling the orchestration designer to automate interactions with EnterpriseOne application forms, including forms with grids. Prior to this enhancement, the only options for working with grid rows were to select the first row or to select all rows. This feature enables the orchestration designer to pass in a specific list of grid rows for the orchestration to operate upon or to specify filtering criteria for the rows that the orchestration will act upon. Particularly in cases where the rows to be acted upon are not consecutive or cannot be filtered in the query-by-example row, this feature gives the orchestration designer more control over selecting grid rows.

  • Pass a Version to a Report Service Request

    A report service request enables an orchestration to submit a report to the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Universal Batch Engine (UBE). The orchestration designer can create the report service request and specify certain attributes of the report such as data selection criteria, processing options, and report output options. When the orchestration runs, the report is submitted just as a user would have done manually.

    This feature now enables the orchestration designer to dynamically pass a report version into the report step as a variable. For example, for a report that has many versions, an orchestration designer can build a single report request and pass a version into that step from an orchestration input, or even from a value that is derived in a previous orchestration step. In this way, a single report step can serve to run any version of a report, giving orchestrations even more flexibility and intelligence.

  • Array Variables for External REST Calls

    The JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Orchestrator includes the powerful capability of making outbound calls to external REST-based services and returning data from those services. Sometimes the external service returns the data as simple variables, such as strings or numbers; other times the service returns an array of data, for example, a list of customer names, account numbers, and addresses. With this enhancement, those returned arrays can be mapped to orchestration variables, which can then be acted upon and iterated over by subsequent orchestration steps.

  • Return REST Header Parameters as Orchestration Variables

    A powerful feature of Orchestrator is the ability to integrate with external REST services. Orchestration designers can identify values in the response from those REST services, which are often carried in the body of the response, and pass those values to subsequent orchestration steps. This feature extends that capability to parameters that are passed through the response header instead of the body. For example, after successful authentication, a REST service may return an authentication token in the response header. With this enhancement, that token can be passed as a variable to subsequent orchestration steps to maintain an authenticated session.

  • Pass OAuth 2.0 Client ID and Client Secret in the Request Body of an Orchestration

    Orchestrations can securely invoke REST APIs from external systems by using industry-standard authentication protocols such as OAuth 2.0. The OAuth 2.0 protocol requires that a client ID and a client secret be exchanged between the two systems.

    This enhancement gives the orchestration designer the choice of sending the client ID and client secret in the request header or in the request body, as is required by some third-party systems. With this added flexibility, Orchestrator can interact securely with a broader range of third-party systems.

  • Secure Session Balancing Across AIS Servers

    This enhancement improves the scalability and fault-tolerance of the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne architecture by distributing the load of session requests among multiple AIS servers.

    The AIS server is the entry point of orchestrations and AIS REST APIs. For scalability and fault-tolerance, a common architecture is to place a group of AIS servers behind a load balancer to distribute the incoming traffic. However, in implementations in which a single user account, such as a service account, is used to run many orchestrations, the user is authenticated to only one AIS server in the group, thereby causing requests to other AIS servers to fail. This enhancement provides a secure mechanism for a set of AIS servers to share authenticated tokens, thus providing a secure scale-out and a fault-tolerant architecture for high-volume requests.

  • Health Check for Basic Auth Configuration for the AIS Server

    Basic Auth is the most common and fundamental method of authenticating to the AIS server; however, the steps to configure Basic Auth in Server Manager are often overlooked.

    This Health Check provides a quick and easy way to validate that Basic Auth has been configured properly, thereby simplifying the initial configuration, server restart, and troubleshooting processes.

  • User Defined Object Dependencies with Orchestrator Components

    This feature enables users to discover the User Defined Object (UDO) dependencies among orchestrations and orchestration components without having to navigate to Orchestrator Studio.

    Orchestrations and the various orchestration components, such as form requests, data requests, rules, and so on, are managed as part of the EnterpriseOne UDO framework. When these objects are created in Orchestrator Studio, dependencies are established. For example, a rule might be used in multiple orchestrations, and one orchestration might embed another orchestration. In some cases these dependencies might become quite complex, making the UDO management tasks of sharing, approving, and promoting these objects tedious and error-prone.

    Prior to this enhancement, the individual UDOs for orchestrations could be listed and managed using the UDO Admin application; however, the View Dependencies feature was not enabled in this application. Users had to return to Orchestrator Studio and open each orchestration component to discover the orchestrations in which the component was used.

    This enhancement enables the View Dependencies feature in the UDO Admin application for orchestrations and orchestration components, thereby simplifying the former tedious process to view the chain of UDO dependencies for orchestrations.

    User Experience

    User experience enhancements enable you to optimize the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne user interface and align it with the requirements of your user community and their business processes-without further technical development and future debt associated with traditional application customizations. Empowered with a platform for extending and personalizing the application forms and the data they act upon, your technical staff, business analysts, and end users can collaborate to streamline the user interface for simple and optimized business processes.

Form Extension - Add Associated Description to Edit Control on a Form

This feature enables a business analyst to add an associated description to an edit control on a form as a form extension without needing to create a custom modification in the Form Design Aid (FDA) development tool. For example, if a business analyst creates a form extension and adds Item Number to the form, they can now also include the item’s associated description. Having the associated description available on the form eliminates the need for the end user to know specific codes in the system, creating a better user experience. Traditionally, if a business analyst wanted to add an associated description to an edit field on a form, they would have to work with a developer and make custom modifications in Form Design Aid (FDA)-a process that involves a complicated and tedious development, deployment, and management lifecycle.

With this feature, the business analyst or developer can now add the associated description for an item “on-the-glass” as a form extension, without having to create, build, and deploy a custom modification in FDA. This feature significantly reduces the dependency on FDA and the need to create custom modifications, thereby decreasing the time, effort, and cost involved in making this simple improvement to the end user experience.

Learn more about Form Extensions on the Extensibility page, and other User Defined Objects, on the User Defined Objects (UDOs) page on LearnJDE.

Enhanced Browser Support for Media Objects

Media objects are often critical components of customers’ business processes, perhaps as important as the transactions and business data to which they are associated. To create and edit media objects, some customers have historically relied on Microsoft’s ActiveX technology, which enabled users to interact with content using the Microsoft Internet Explorer web browser.

This feature, while ensuring continuity of the ability to create, edit, and manage media objects, provides a similar user experience when customers perform these tasks using any of the JD Edwards certified browsers. In addition to the rich user experience, this feature enables customers to use certified browsers to access the same capabilities that ActiveX historically provided, including support for Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Google Docs.

    System Automation

    System automation provides your technical team with the tools they need to automate manual and repetitive administrative processes such as object management, troubleshooting, and batch management. This frees up your IT resources to partner with other departments of your organization to improve processes and drive innovation.

    Security is ensured through secure authentication, access, and monitoring at every layer of the architecture while adhering to ever-changing industry security standards.

    Open platform offers you choice and control over the underlying computing architecture on which you run your EnterpriseOne system. General industry trends are constantly changing and specific releases of hardware, operating systems, databases, middleware, and browsers are frequently updated. JD Edwards continually certifies the latest platforms to ensure that customers have a stable, modern platform for adopting future innovation.

  • Improved Business Continuity with Native Oracle Database Connection Management

    This feature introduces the Oracle Database native connection management for Oracle Database customers, which provides more control over the state of the Oracle Database connections compared to the JD Edwards database connection pool. Oracle Database native connection management significantly accelerates the process of obtaining database connections, promotes efficient connection reuse, minimizes the number of stale connections, and ensures efficient connection management. Customers can use the Oracle Database native connection management for an efficient and graceful connection management capability and improved business continuity. This feature is currently available only for customers using Oracle Database 19c on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure or Oracle Autonomous Database 19c on Dedicated Exadata Infrastructure and Exadata Cloud@Customer.

  • Default Browser for Web Development Client

    This feature enables JD Edwards EnterpriseOne developers to use any JD Edwards EnterpriseOne certified web browser for the web development client; previously the browser option was limited to Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE). With this feature, developers are able to develop and test their solutions on the development client with a browser that matches the browsers used by the users. Additionally, administrators no longer need to provision and support IE just for the development client if IE is not part of their corporate strategy.

    Platform Certifications

    JD Edwards EnterpriseOne deployments depend on a matrix of interdependent platform components from Oracle and third-party vendors. The product support lifecycle of these components is driven by their vendors, creating a continuous need to certify the latest versions of these products to give customers a complete technology stack that is functional, well-performing, and supported by the vendors.

Manufacturing

Work Order Bill of Material and Routing Type Default Selection

New processing options have been added to enable the default selection of bill of material and routing types, other than the standard “M’ type, when a manufacturing work order is entered. Prior to this enhancement, users had to manually overwrite the bill of material and routing type if they wanted to use something other than the standard type. This enhancement benefits organizations that need to routinely adjust the bills of material and routings used for production work orders but do not want to update the standard types that are used as often for product costing. Download Feature

Option to Exclude Scrap When Determining Work Order Status

Make-to-order manufacturers often need the work order status to be based only on completed quantities, without considering scrap. A new processing option has been added to the Work Order Completions program to specify whether scrap quantities are included when determining if a work order is complete. Prior to this enhancement, work orders were always updated to the specified complete status code when the quantity completed plus the quantity scrapped was greater than or equal to the quantity ordered. Download Feature

Prevent Obsolete Item Entry on Bills of Material and ECO Parts Lists

An error message is now displayed when an attempt is made in a bill of material or an ECO parts list to enter items that are coded as obsolete (Stocking Type O or U). Prior to this enhancement, an item could be entered despite being coded as obsolete. Download Feature

Quality Management

Serial Number Selection for Test Results Entry

When users exit from the Hours and Quantities program or the Super Backflush program to the Test Results Entry application, the system displays serial numbers for selection if the numbers have already been assigned to the work order. Prior to this update, for items with Lot Process Type 5 or 6, a new serial number was automatically generated for Test Results Entry even if serial numbers were already assigned. Download Feature

Inventory Management

Quantity On-Hand Field Made Visible on the Item Availability by Location Form

The Work with Item Availability by Location form has been enhanced to display the On-Hand Quantity field. This enhancement enables users to quickly see if there is stock on hand and eliminates a common customization. Download Feature

Support for Non-Blank Approved Lot Statuses

System administrators can now set up non-blank approved lot statuses and enable all applications that validate lot status to recognize these statuses. Batch programs have also been delivered to update existing lot statuses to support adoption of this feature. Prior to this enhancement, only a blank lot status was considered as approved which could lead to confusion as users could not tell if the blank value was intentional or not

Warehouse Management

Improved Item Availability Calculations for Move Requests

The Location Selection Driver program and the Manual Planner application within the Request Inquiry program now include an option to exclude inbound quantities from the item availability calculation and to create suggestions only for locations that have on-hand quantities. Benefits include increased productivity and warehouse utilization as well as improved labor efficiency because pickers can now make only productive trips in the warehouse. Download Feature

License Plate Batch Print

The Warehouse Management System has been enhanced to include a new License Plate Print Batch report. This report includes processing options that enable you to print the report as a ready-to-use PDF document or to specify a version of a customized report and create an XML label output that contains user-defined license plate information. Additionally, the new report can be launched from the License Plate Workbench. Download Feature

License Plate Attachments

The License Plate Workbench, License Plate Cross-Reference, and License Plate History programs have been modified to provide the option to add attachments enabling users to update license plates with key information and retain attachments history. This capability eliminates the need to store this information in external documents. Download Feature

Grower Management

Allow Harvest Dates to Overlap

The Grower Management system has been enhanced to allow the start and end dates of a harvest record to overlap with the dates of another harvest record for the same block. This flexibility enables operations to begin in preparation for the next harvest for a given block of land while current harvest operations are winding down for that block. Download Feature

Ability to Edit Planted Area

The Block and Harvest programs have been modified to enable you to edit the Planted Area field after a grower operation has been created. This capability eliminates the need to create new block and harvest records because of unforeseen changes in the planted area such as an unexpected change in demand, floods, drought, and so on. Download Feature

Ability to Change Contract Header and Block End Dates to an Earlier Date

The Grower Contract Header and Contract Block programs have been modified to enable the user to change contract end dates to an earlier date. This capability provides the flexibility to update the contract end dates when conditions of the contract are met sooner than expected. Download Feature

Contract and Service Billing

Ability to Process Zero Dollar Invoices in Contract and Service Billing

Configuration options have been added in Contract and Service Billing to allow zero-dollar invoices to be created in the Accounts Receivable system for zero-dollar billable contracts and service work orders. These processing options in the Journal Generation and Create AR Entries reports help to eliminate gaps in invoice numbers for VAT reporting and ensures compliance with regulatory requirements. Download Feature

Homebuilder Management

Eliminate Customization with Improved Supplier Determination Process for Takeoff Contracts

The Supplier To-Be-Determined process for takeoff contracts is improved to closely mimic the Supplier To-Be-Determined process for bid contracts. Underlying functionality changes have been made to simplify the assignment process by providing the option to dynamically select eligible suppliers for takeoff contracts. This change can eliminate a customization that many customers have added to manually restrict the assignment of non-eligible suppliers to the takeoff contract. Download Feature

Improved Framework for Closing Entries of a Home Sale at the Community Level

The framework for completing the closing entries for a home sale has been improved.

These multifaceted changes boost the accuracy of the lot allocation process involving indirect or land costs, refines pro-forma forecasting to determine the true profit for a community, and aids in drawing up the project projections based on the actual or estimated cost per square footage. These changes also help to generate the budget for a statistical account maintained for the plan's square footage data. Download Feature
