Monthly Update Schedule

We would like to inform you of the upcoming monthly update for your Oracle Cloud environments. We will apply the latest updates to your test environment on Friday, November 3, 2017 and to your production environment on Friday, November 17, 2017. The update will be applied during your normal daily maintenance window.

The Oracle Help Center, which provides access to updated documentation, will also be available on November 3, 2017.

NOTE: Account Reconciliation Cloud does not support migration of snapshots from the latest service version to an earlier service version (for example, when moving snapshots between test and production pods during the window when test is upgraded before production.)  Migration between the same versions will still be supported.  Some objects, such as Profiles, may still be moved from the latest to an earlier version outside of migration snapshots by exporting them from the latest service version and importing them into the earlier version.

Integrations Between EPM Cloud Services

Financial Consolidation and Close Cloud and Tax Reporting Cloud customers that have subscriptions to multiple EPM Cloud services can create connections between services and enable integrations between these EPM Cloud services using Close Manager functionality.

The pre-built and end user integrations enable customers to perform tasks within FCCS and TRCS that access other EPM Cloud functionality.  For example, you can create end user integrations in FCCS to an Account Reconciliation Cloud (ARCS) environment, so that users can easily monitor reconciliation status from FCCS tasks. 

Pre-built integrations and end user integrations are provided within Close Manager for the following EPM Cloud services:

For more information on these integrations, see Appendix A of the Financial Consolidation and Close Cloud Administrator’s Guide or the Tax Reporting Cloud Administrator’s Guide.

Changes to CSV Version of the Provisioning Report

This release reverts the changes made to the CSV version of the Provisioning Report in the September monthly update (17.09) so that it now lists the application roles that are mapped to the predefined identity domain roles assigned to users. It also lists the groups to which users are assigned, even if the group is not assigned to any role.  For example, if the user is assigned the Service Administrator role, the CSV version of the report lists one row for each application role mapped to the Service Administrator role.

For information on creating the CSV version of the Provisioning Report, see Generating Service-Level Provisioning Report” in Administering Access Control for Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud.

Reusing Target Application Names

Data Management supports the registration of target applications with the same name multiple times. This feature enables you to take an existing target application and assign it a unique identifier. It addresses the requirements of those customers who must manage identical target applications in multiple cloud and hybrid deployments and environments.

A target application with a prefix name is not backward compatible, and cannot be migrated back to a 17.10 or earlier release. Only target applications without prefix names can be migrated to an earlier release.

See the "Reusing Target Application Names Multiple Times" topic in the Administering Data Management for Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud guide.
