EPM Automate enables Service Administrators to automate many repeatable tasks including the following:

  • Import and export metadata, data, artifact and application snapshots, templates, and Data Management mappings

  • Upload files into environments, list files, and delete files from the service

  • Download snapshots, reports, and metadata and data files from the service

  • Run business rules on data, and refresh the application

  • Copy data from one database to another; typically, from a block storage database to an aggregate storage database or from a block storage database to another block storage database

  • Run a Data Management batch rule

  • Generate Data Management reports, provisioning report, and user audit report

  • Import pre-mapped balance data, currency rates, pre-mapped transactions, balances data, and profiles into Account Reconciliation

  • Copy profiles to a period to initiate the reconciliation process

  • Deploy the calculation cube of an Profitability and Cost Management application

  • Clear, copy, and delete Point of Views in Profitability and Cost Management applications

  • Replay Oracle Smart View for Office load on an environment to enable performance testing under heavy load

  • Import supplemental data from a file into Financial Consolidation and Close

You can create scripts that are capable of completing a wide array of tasks and automate their execution using a scheduler. For example, you can create a script to download the daily maintenance backup from environments to create local backups of your artifacts and data.
