This guide outlines the announcements and fixed issues in the upcoming Oracle Financial Consolidation and Close Cloud update.

Announcements and New Features

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, March 3, 2017 and to your production environment on Friday, March 17, 2017. The update will be applied during your normal daily maintenance window.

New EPM Automate Utility Version

A new version of the EPM Automate Utility is available with this update. In this version, replay command has been enhanced to support the replay of Financial Reporting report launch loads on a service instance to enable performance testing under heavy load to verify that user experience is acceptable when the service is under the specified load.

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

Activity Report Now Includes Smart View Version Information

The Application Activity Report, which presents information on application usage, has been enhanced to include information on the versions of Oracle Smart View that are used to access the application. The report lists Oracle Smart View versions older than as Unknown Version. This enhancement allows users, especially Service Administrators, to ensure that they are using the newest version of Oracle Smart View which incorporates new features and bug fixes.

See Viewing Activity Reports in Administering Oracle Financial Consolidation and Close Cloud for detailed information on the Application Activity Report.

Translated Help and Guides Now Available

The on-line Help and guides are now translated into French, German, Italian, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Japanese, Korean, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese. You can see the translated guides on the Financial Consolidation and Close Cloud Help Center’s Translated Books tab. Please note that the translated documentation covers all features up to December 9, 2016, except for Working with Smart View for Enterprise Performance Management Cloud, which covers features up to October 6, 2016.

Account Member Property Exchange Rate Type

Users can now change the Exchange Rate property on a pre-seeded shared member, such as FCCS_Common Stock. Previously, the Exchange Rate property was read-only for pre-seeded members.
