EPM System Update and Upgrade Policies

This topic outlines the update and upgrade policies for Oracle Enterprise Performance Management System.

Update Policies

An EPM System update is applied on top of Release 11.2.x, from another Release 11.2.x update. For example, you can update from Release 11.2.4.0.000 (Release 11.2, Update 4) to Release 11.2.5.0.000 (Release 11.2, Update 5). You can apply one or more patches on top of an update.

  • EPM System updates are released on a quarterly basis, generally in January, April, July, and October.
  • Updates include changes for all embedded components, such as WebLogic and Java, as needed.
  • You can directly apply an update from the previous two updates.
  • Updates are applied in place.
  • Any customer patches that were released are rolled into the next update.
  • Applying an update removes all patches applied to the previous update.
  • Updates are expected to be easy to apply and have minimum impact for you to absorb.

When you apply an update, use the Apply Update option in EPM System Installer, and then perform any required configuration tasks in EPM System Configurator. See Applying an Update to EPM System Products in the Oracle® Enterprise Performance Management System Installation and Configuration Guide.

Upgrade Policies

Oracle supports direct upgrade from Release 11.1.2.4.xxx to any of the updates. For details, see Supported Paths to Release 11.2.

To upgrade, you deploy EPM System Release 11.2.x software on a new machine and migrate EPM System Release 11.1.2.4.xxx artifacts (such as applications, metadata, and security) and data to the new deployment. See Upgrading EPM System in the Oracle® Enterprise Performance Management System Installation and Configuration Guide.

Financial Close Management New Features

Begining with Release 11.2.5, you can configure a content management system for Oracle Hyperion Financial Close Management.

Planning New Features

Support for Adding Dynamic Members in Smart View

Support for adding dynamic members is now extended to Smart View.

Note:

Dynamic members are sometimes referred to as "on-the-fly" members.

In Smart View, Oracle Hyperion Planning users can now add on-the-fly members by running business rules that administrators create on members that are enabled for dynamic children.

Dynamic children are members that users can create when working with business rules in the web or in Smart View. An administrator designs a business rule for creating dynamic children. The administrator then enables end users to launch this rule and refreshes the database to create the required placeholders for these members. In business rules with runtime prompts, Smart View users create members by entering the desired member names in the runtime prompt. Subsequent database refreshes will rename used dynamic children to the names specified by the end users and recreate the required placeholders in the database. The same processes can be followed to create and use business rules for deleting dynamic members.

Service Administrators: See the following topics for more information on setting up business rules for dynamic members:

Smart View users: See the following topics for information on adding or deleting dynamic members in Smart View:

Upcoming Changes

Essbase Studio Support

Beginning with Release 11.2.6, EPM System will no longer distribute Essbase Studio. For further details, see the Essbase Studio Statement of Direction (https://support.oracle.com/epmos/faces/DocumentDisplay?_afrLoop=81935405509356&id=2731169.1&_afrWindowMode=0&_adf.ctrl-state=rbcbyuw9y_4).

If you have any questions regarding this decision, please create a Service Request.

  • 32086440 -- For Management Ledger calculations, the Oracle Essbase debug scripts were always getting generated, even when the runtime option was not selected. This situation could cause some rules to be skipped when running parallel rule sets. Now the Essbase debug scripts are only captured when the runtime option is selected.

  • 31974684 -- For Management Ledger applications there was a performance regression that prevented calculations and other operations from using the dimension cache. That issue is corrected in this release.

  • 31838361 -- In Trace Allocations for Management Ledger applications, when doing a forward trace on a calculation rule that has an alternative offset location specified, the rule node now correctly displays a value for "Allocation Out".

Defects Fixed in Release 11.2.3

Release 11.2.3 resolves the following Profitability and Cost Management defects:

  • 31753598 - In Trace Allocations for Management Ledger applications, when doing a backwards trace on a calculation that had an alternative offset, the node would display a value that was double the actual value because it was combining the allocation offset amount and allocation out. Now, the correct value is displayed when alternate offsets are involved.

  • 31555438 - For Management Ledger applications, when the Template Import job cannot create and deploy the Essbase cube for the imported application, the job now completes with Success with Warnings and an appropriate error message, rather than as Success with no message about the failure to deploy the cube.

  • 31560568 - For Management Ledger applications, in the Model Summary screen, the Essbase Cluster value was editable but was not showing the valid values in the environment other than the current value, so there was no way to select a different value in order to correct an incorrect value. That problem is resolved in this release.

  • 30575404 - For Management Ledger applications, the Essbase Cluster application preference used to be included in exported template files and was always used during template import, leaving no option to select a different value during import into another environment. In this release, the Essbase cluster value is enabled to select in the application creation dialog box, from the list of Essbase clusters that are present in the current environment. This improves the portability of template export files from one environment to another, and aids in the migration of Management Ledger applications from previous releases or to Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud.

Defects Fixed in Release 11.2.2

There are no Profitability and Cost Management defects fixed in Release 11.2.2.

Defects Fixed in Release 11.2.1

Release 11.2.1 resolves the following Profitability and Cost Management defects:

  • 30830579 -- From the Profitability Applications console, creating a new Detailed Profitability application using the Native method was blocked by an error in the New Application dialog; that error is fixed in this release.

  • 30793278 -- For Management Ledger applications, the Rule Sets and Rules tab in Model Validation was initially only showing the first 6 errors; the remaining error lines were displayed only after clicking the Query by Example icon. In this release, all of the errors are shown directly after running the validation, as expected.

  • 30776134 -- The Export Dimension feature in the Profitability Applications console was creating a comma-separated-values (csv) dimension text file with correctly-formatted contents, but without the expected ".csv" file suffix. In this release, the Export Dimensions feature correctly creates the dimension text file with the .csv file suffix.

  • 30774672 -- For Standard Profitability applications, in the Manage Queries screen, changes to the Suppress #Missing and the Dimension Aliases check boxes were not correctly saved; that problem is fixed in this release.

  • 30665293, 30670795 -- For Standard Profitability applications, the Job Status => Search Task screen was not accessible; it is restored in this release.

  • 30382303—ON-PREM - IN CERTAIN CASES ASO FORMULA VALIDATES SUCCESSFULLY WITH SEMICOLON CHARACTER. A member formula validates successfully when it shouldn’t in this circumstance: You enter a formula that ends with a semicolon character for an aggregate storage (ASO) cube.

  • 30386969—UI HANGS SAVING A VALUE IN A COMPOSITE DATA FORM. If a composite form contains duplicate component forms, the user interface freezes when you save data in the composite form.

  • 32311710—LCM MIGRATION FAILED FOR THE FOLLOWING REASON - 28. The migration failed because you can't use dimension names that are the same name as a member property or a column header in the metadata load file (for example, Data Type). The "Naming Restrictions" appendix of the Oracle Hyperion Planning Administrator's Guide does not state this.

Profitability and Cost Management Known Issues

Oracle Hyperion Profitability and Cost Management Release 11.2.5 includes the following known issues:

  • WSDL-based web services are not supported in Release 11.2 for Profitability and Cost Management. REST web services are supported. Customers using the WSDL sample client must convert to using the REST sample client hpm_ws_rest_client.bat/hpm_ws_rest_client.sh. For more information about using the REST sample client or developing your own REST API integration, see Oracle Hyperion Profitability and Cost Management REST API Developer's Guide Version 11.2.5.0.000.

  • 32698046 -- This release includes performance enhancements involving a dimension cache. In clustered environments, the cache must be refreshed on each Profitability and Cost Management managed server node. The cluster-enabled cache refresh is not enabled by default. If your system is configured with multiple managed servers, then you will need to issue the following SQL statement in the Profitability and Cost Management database, to add the installation preference which enables the cluster-enabled cache refresh.

    For an Oracle database, execute this statement in SQL Developer as the schema owner and commit the change, then restart the Profitability and Cost Management service on each managed server:

    INSERT INTO HPM_INSTALLATION_PREFERENCE
        (ID, NAME, VALUE, HPM_INSTALLATION_ID, CREATED_TIMESTAMP,
         CREATED_USERID, MODIFIED_TIMESTAMP, MODIFIED_USERID,
         DISPLAY_ORDER)
     VALUES (46, 'dimension.cache.cluster.refresh.enabled', 'Y', 1, SYSDATE,
    'INIT', SYSDATE,'INIT', 46);

    For an SQL Server database, execute this statement in SQL Server Management Studio as the database owner, then restart the Profitability and Cost Management service on each managed server:

    INSERT INTO HPM_INSTALLATION_PREFERENCE
        (ID, NAME, VALUE, HPM_INSTALLATION_ID, CREATED_TIMESTAMP,
         CREATED_USERID, MODIFIED_TIMESTAMP, MODIFIED_USERID,
         DISPLAY_ORDER)
    VALUES (46, 'dimension.cache.cluster.refresh.enabled', 'Y', 1, getDate(),
    'INIT', getDate(), 'INIT', 46);
    go

    To revert this setting, delete the same row or update the value to N.

  • 32525244 -- For Standard Profitability and Cost Management applications that were created by duplicating an existing application, you get an error such as "Error processing calculation scripts" the first time you run a calculation. This can be avoided by first running the application with only the Clear Calculated Data option selected, and then running the calculation in a separate job.

  • 32123383 -- In the Manage Queries screen for Management Ledger applications, if you try to edit a query that belongs to an application other than the current application, you will get an error message when you try to save the changes. The workaround is to only edit queries from within the application they belong to.

  • 32109059 -- While calculating parallel rule sets (with a Calculation Threads preference value greater than 1) and with the Capture Essbase Debug Scripts runtime option selected, some of the rule executions can get skipped without any errors or warnings reported. To avoid this problem, if you need to capture Essbase debug scripts, you can temporarily change the Calculation Threads application preference to 1.

  • 31721173 -- Oracle Essbase is now expecting all dimensions specified in the left-hand side of the formula to be specified in the right-hand side as well. Prior to Release 11.1.2.4.036, it was not mandatory. If you do not specify the left-hand-side dimensions in the right-hand side, you will receive the following message: "Error: The argument [Script] is missing one or more dimensions."

  • 30445644 -- For Detailed Profitability applications using SQL Server, the Total Output and Unassigned Cost values in the Stage Summary section of Stage Balancing do not display the correct values.

  • 30440499, 30462134 -- In APS connection mode on distributed systems, where Essbase is installed on a different server from Profitability and Cost Management, Essbase connection errors can occur during cube deployment, calculation, rule balancing, and so on if APS is not correctly installed and configured.

    The main requirement here is that for distributed systems, Analytic Provider Services must also be installed on the Profitability and Cost Management server.

  • 20421528 -- For Management Ledger applications using the "APS" connection type, the Cells Updated statistic is missing from the Execution Statistics system report. Oracle strongly recommends you use the "Embedded" Essbase connection type.

Shared Services Known Issues

Oracle Hyperion Shared Services Release 11.2.5 includes the following known issue:

Lightweight Directory Access Protocol Channel Binding for Microsoft Active Directory Hardening

The default configurations for Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) channel binding and LDAP signing has known vulnerabilities that let LDAP clients communicate with them without enforcing LDAP channel binding and LDAP signing.

Microsoft recommended safe default configurations for LDAP channel binding and LDAP signing on Active Directory Domain Controllers that supersedes the default unsafe configurations are available in ADV190023 Microsoft Guidance for Enabling LDAP Channel Binding and LDAP Signing.

Oracle recommends that Oracle Enterprise Performance Management System deployments that use MSAD follow the procedures in the Microsoft advisory to manually update LDAP channel binding and LDAP signing configurations until a fix is available from Microsoft.

After manually updating LDAP channel binding and LDAP signing configurations on the MSAD server, use only SSL connections in EPM System to access MSAD.
