Installing EPM Automate

EPM Automate installer for Windows and Linux/UNIX, and Mac OS X is available from your Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud environment.

EPM Automate can be installed on virtual machines and Integration Cloud Service machines that can access external hosts over a secure HTTP connection.

Note:

  • EPM Automate may be used only on 64-bit operating systems that are currently supported by the operating system vendor.
  • EPM Automate does not work with SOCKS proxy; it works only with HTTP/HTTPS proxy.

On Linux and UNIX computers, EPM Automate looks for the following environment variables to determine proxy settings:

  • proxyHost
  • proxyPort
  • https.proxyHost
  • https.proxyPort

Examples of http proxy settings:

export proxyHost=host.example.com

export proxyPort=8000

Examples of https proxy settings:

export https.proxyHost=host.example.com

export https.proxyPort=8080

Note:

EPM Automate does not work with corporate SSO (identity provider) credentials. Because users cannot sign in using corporate credentials, the user accounts for accessing EPM Automate must be maintained in the service.

If you configured your subscription for SSO, you must also enable users to sign-in with their identity domain credentials. See Enabling Sign In With Identity Domain Credentials in Administering Oracle Cloud Identity Management.

Java Runtime Environment and EPM Automate

Installing EPM Automate on Windows installs the required Java Runtime Environment (JRE). However, a JRE is not included in the Linux, Unix, and Mac OS X installers. You must have access to a JRE installation (version 1.7 or higher) to use EPM Automate.

You are entitled to use Oracle Java Standard Edition (SE) with EPM Automate without the need to separately purchase a Java SE subscription. For details about Oracle JDK licensing with EPM Automate, refer to Oracle Support Document 1557737.1: "Support Entitlement for Java SE When Used As Part of Another Oracle Product" .

Using OpenJDK

You may use OpenJDK version 14 or higher instead of JRE on Linux, Unix, and Mac OS X platforms.

OpenJDK, Oracle's free, GPL-licensed, production-ready JDK, can be downloaded from https://openjdk.java.net. Instructions to install OpenJDK are also available on this web site.

Before starting an EPM Automate session, set the JAVA_HOME environment variable to point to your OpenJDK installation:

Mac OS X example (Bash shell assumed) to use OpenJDK version 14 installed in your home directory.

cd ~/
export JAVA_HOME=$(/usr/jdk-14.jdk/Contents/Home)

Linux example (Bash shell assumed) to use OpenJDK version 14 installed in your home directory

cd ~/
export JAVA_HOME=/openjdk/jdk-14.0.2
