Oracle will begin applying the latest updates to EPM Cloud Test environments starting at 14:00 UTC-7 (2:00pm Pacific Time) Friday, December 1, 2017 and to Production environments on Friday, December 15, 2017, also starting at 14:00 UTC-7. The updates will be applied to your EPM Cloud environments during the first subsequent Daily Maintenance.
The Oracle Help Center, which provides access to updated documentation, will also be available on December 1, 2017.
Starting in this update, you can migrate from Oracle Hyperion Financial Close Management’s Account Reconciliation Manager module to Oracle Account Reconciliation Cloud. The Financial Close Management release must be at 126.96.36.199.250 or later to perform this migration. See the “Administering Oracle Accounting Reconciliation Cloud” guide for detailed instructions.
Starting with this update, Service Administrator and end-user “getting started” information for all EPM Cloud Services is available from the following new guides:
- Getting Started with Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud for Administrators
- Getting Started with Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud for Users
Getting Started with Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud for Administrators contains information on the tasks that Service Administrators can perform with EPM Cloud Services. This guide, which provides common administrative information for all EPM Cloud services, is now the primary source for tasks related to EPM Cloud administration including managing users and roles, setting up single sign-on, and backing up and restoring environments. This guide replaces the following guides:
- Using Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud
- Getting Started with Oracle Financial Consolidation and Close Cloud
- Getting Started with Account Reconciliation Cloud for Administrators
- Getting Started with Oracle Profitability and Cost Management Cloud for Administrators
- Getting Started with Oracle Tax Reporting Cloud
- Getting Started for Administrators for Oracle Enterprise Performance Reporting Cloud
Getting Started with Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud for Users introduces end-users to Oracle EPM Cloud and provides information that enables them to quickly become proficient. This guide replaces the following guides:
- Getting Started with Account Reconciliation Cloud for Users
- Getting Started with Oracle Profitability and Cost Management Cloud for Users
- Getting Started for Users for Oracle Enterprise Performance Reporting Cloud
Links in the Cloud Help Center and Oracle Learning Library have been modified to direct users to these guides. Please change your personal bookmarks and shortcuts so that they point to these new guides.

As of early calendar year, 2018, the old method of accessing the Reconciliation List, Transactions List, and Profiles List will no longer be available. Enhancements to the Reconciliation Compliance user interface that were introduced several months ago provided a more intuitive and improved user experience, including Reconciliation, Transaction and Profile List Views, Manage Reports, and common use of a filter bar across multiple EPM Cloud services. These changes provide you with quick, easy navigation.
Check this list again for the latest information when the update is applied to your test environment.
