Initial Document Creation

Oracle Enterprise Performance Reporting Cloud, August Update

This document outlines announcements, new features, considerations and defects fixed in the upcoming Oracle Enterprise Performance Reporting Cloud update.

Announcements and New Features

Monthly Update Schedule

We would like to inform you of the upcoming monthly update for your Cloud environments. We will apply the latest updates to your test environment on Friday, August 4, 2017 and to your production environment on Friday, August 18, 2017. The update will be applied during your scheduled daily maintenance window.

The Oracle Help Center, where you can find documentation, videos and useful information about Oracle Enterprise Performance Reporting Cloud Service, will also be updated on August 4, 2017 to reflect the new functionality.

Prompt Support in Management Reporting

Prompts enable a report viewer to select the members for a grid row, column, or point of view (POV) when they run the report. You define the member selections for the prompt when you design the report, and then report viewers choose from the members that you defined when they run the report. You can define prompts in the global POV and the rows and columns of the grids in your report.

Prompts can be also used in reports that are inserted into report packages as reference doclets.

Download Smart View Extensions from the Downloads Page

You can now download Oracle Smart View for Office extensions from the Downloads page. From the User menu on the Home Page, select Downloads, and then select an extension:

Reset to Default Cell Properties Within a Management Report Grid

You can now reset all selected cell formatting in a management report grid back to the default settings.

Copy Formatting In a Management Reporting Grid

You can now copy formatting from a cell, row or column and paste it to a destination cell, row or column.

Grid-Level Alias Table in Management Reporting Grids

By default, management reporting grids use the alias table that was selected at the report level. You can now select a different alias table at the grid level.

Set Date Format in Management Reporting Grids Data Cells

Currently, management reporting grid cells that contain a date are formatted using the User Preference for dates. You can now specify a date format at the grid level.

Report Packages and Management Reports Inherit Edit/Admin Permissions from Folder

Report Packages and Management Reports will now inherit Edit and Administer permissions from their parent folders when inheritance is turned on. (By default, inheritance for report packages is turned off when the report package is created.) This provides a simplified and convenient approach to access management and improves ease of maintenance.

Add Schedule-Type Networks in Disclosure Management Taxonomy Designer

In addition to Statement and Disclosure-type networks, you can now add Schedule-type networks to your taxonomy extension in Disclosure Management Taxonomy Designer.

New Smart View For Office Version

Smart View for Office will be available by mid-August. This version fixes a number of defects. The Smart View Readme, available on the Help Center at the time of release, contains a complete list of the defects addressed in this version.

You must install this version to ensure compatibility with the August 2017 update features and to access the new functionalities. See “Setting Up Enterprise Performance Reporting Cloud in Smart View” in the Oracle® Smart View for Office User's guide for instructions.

New Smart View Extension Version

The Oracle Enterprise Performance Reporting 17.08 extension update is now available. This update fixes a bug where when using the Open and Check Out command on a doclet that was not in the root directory, the doclet was opened but the hierarchy of doclets in the doclet panel was not properly refreshed, resulting in a Microsoft .NET Framework exception.

The 17.08 extension is compatible with Smart View and Smart View
