Monthly Update Schedule

Oracle will apply the latest updates to your test environment on Friday, October 6, 2017 and to your production environment on Friday, October 13, 2017. The update will be applied during your normal 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 available on October 6, 2017.

Migrate Financial Reporting Reports to Management Reporting

You can now migrate reports that were created in Financial Reporting (EPM Cloud release 17.10 or later, on –premises release or later) to Management Reporting by exporting them from Financial Reporting and then importing them into Management Reporting. When the reports are imported into Management Reporting, the system converts the Financial Reporting elements to the Management Reporting equivalents where available.

Enhanced Management Reporting Text Object Editor

The editor for text objects in Management Reporting has been enhanced with new features, including:

Special Characters Added for Library and Management Reporting Names

You can now use the following special characters: [ ] ; = & , ' in names in the Library and Management Reporting.

Ability to Move Tree Branches in Taxonomy Designer

In Taxonomy Designer, if you increase or decrease the indent of an element, all of the elements underneath that element are moved in or out as well. This enables you to move entire branches with one action, instead of moving one element at a time.

Add and Remove Network Sections in Taxonomy Designer

In Taxonomy Designer, after you have added a network to your extended taxonomy, you can now edit it to add, rename, or remove sections from it.
