Initial Document Creation

Oracle Account Reconciliation Cloud, October Update

New Features

New EPM Automate Utility Version

A new version of the EPM Automate Utility is available with this update. This version supports the following new commands for Data Management:

You must install this version of the utility to use the new commands. See these sections in Working with EPM Automate for Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud:


Importing and Exporting Data Maps and Executing Reports

You can now use EPM Cloud REST APIs to perform these tasks: Import Data Map, Export Data Map, and
Execute Report. This allows you to use Data Management to import and export data maps for a selected
dimension or all dimensions, and to execute a report. The Import member mappings API supports merge and replace modes as well as validate or no validate options for target members.

Updating the Scheduled Maintenance Window Time

You can now use EPM Cloud REST APIs to view and update the scheduled maintenance window time by performing these tasks: Get Build Version and Maintenance Window Time and Update Maintenance Window Time.

See the Oracle® Cloud REST API for Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud Guide and the Oracle® Cloud Enterprise Performance Management Integration Guide.

Changes to Daily Maintenance Screen

The navigation path to the Daily Maintenance screen where you set the maintenance window start time has changed. Additionally, Daily Maintenance screen no longer contains the Version number of the current update, which linked to the readiness web site.

To view update version number and access readiness information:

  1. Access the service.
  2. Click your user name at the top right corner of the screen to open Settings and Actions.
  3. Select About, and then Version.
  4. To view readiness information, click Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Readiness.
    The Enterprise Performance Management Readiness web site is displayed.
  5. Click Account Reconciliation and then a readiness document format (HTML, PDF or ePUB).

About Daily Backups

The service, during daily maintenance, automatically creates a backup of data and artifacts. This service replaces the daily backup every time the maintenance is completed.

Set up an automated job using the EPM Automate Utility to download the backup to a local computer.

Multi-Column Loading of Numeric Data and Multi-Period Loading of Header Records

Data Management now supports a multi-column load of numeric data for any dimension. Prior to this update, Data Management supported only the loading of multi-period column data. In addition, a multi-period load using the header record is now available.

Enhanced Data Integration with Fusion Financials Cloud

The current integration between the Fusion Financials Cloud (GL) and EPM Cloud applications has been enhanced to provide a more seamless integration experience. The updated integration allows users to pick the desired source ledger from the Fusion Financials Cloud, set up a few simple mappings, and then push a button to pull the data into EPM Cloud applications. Additionally, you can set up simple mapping between your Planning application and Fusion Ledger to write-back Budgets from Planning to Fusion Financials. This integration, which can be run manually or scheduled for a specific time, no longer requires manual steps in Fusion Financials Cloud and EPM Cloud. The updated integration also sets up the drill definition automatically, which eliminates errors that may be caused when manually defining a drill definition.

If you are using an earlier version of the integration, you can continue to use it. You cannot automatically migrate an existing integration to the enhanced version of the integration. You can create a new integration definition with the new method as needed. This integration is available for customers using Fusion Financials Cloud Release 11 or higher.


This update applies routine maintenance and infrastructural updates.

You can now use email sender policy framework to configure your corporate email system to ensure that important Oracle notifications regarding your service are not filtered out by your corporate email filtering system. See “Configuring SPF Record for Oracle Cloud Email Verification” in the Getting Started with Account Reconciliation Cloud for Administrators guide.
