Oracle Account Reconciliation Cloud, January Update

This document outlines the upcoming Oracle Account Reconciliation Cloud update.

Monthly Update Schedule

Oracle will apply the latest updates to your test environments starting at 22:00 UTC (15:00 PDT) on Friday, January 4, 2019 and to your production environment on Friday, January 18, 2019, also starting at 22:00 UTC. The updates will be applied to your environments during the first subsequent daily maintenance.

The Oracle Help Center, which provides access to updated documentation, has a new look and feel. The updates will be available on January 4, 2019. Some of the links to new feature documentation included in this document will not work until after the Oracle Help Center update is complete.

Reminder: Backing up the daily maintenance snapshot and restoring the environment as needed are self-service operations. Oracle recommends that you download the maintenance snapshot every day to a local server.

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 is 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.

Backing up the daily maintenance snapshot and restoring the environment as needed are self-service operations. Oracle recommends that you download the maintenance snapshot every day to a local server.

Announcements

Drill Through to End Balance Available for Viewers

Users with the Viewer role are now able to drill through from the balance on the reconciliation to see what individual balances make up the total reconciliation balance.

Defects Fixed

Software issues addressed each month will be posted to My Oracle Support.

Considerations

Academy

In the Academy, some pages and icons may appear different in the video and the Cloud service.

Using Refresh

It is a best practice to use Refresh within the Account Reconciliation Cloud user interface rather than performing a browser refresh.
