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, October 6, 2017 and to your production environment on Friday, October 20, 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 October 6, 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.

Transaction Matching Now Allows Multiple Match Processes and Data Sources

Transaction Matching has no limit on the number of match processes that you can create and no limit on the number of data sources that can be created and used during a match process. This gives much greater flexibility and is especially useful for situations where greater than two data sources are needed in order to perform your Account Analysis or Balance Comparison reconciliation. Up to now, only up to two data sources and one match process was allowed. For example, you may want to perform a match between General Ledger (GL) –Point of Sale (POS) and POS – BANK (Bank Statement).

These new features allow:

Due to the changes in this new feature, customers should note the following:

New EPM Automate Utility Version

A new version of the EPM Automate Utility is available with this update. This version includes updates to the login command, which now accepts internet proxy server domain, user name, and password as optional parameters. This enhancement enables you to use the EPM Automate utility in corporate network environments with internet proxy server configuration that require users to authenticate with the proxy server before establishing communication with resources outside the corporate network.

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