Key Features (very similar to 13.1.1.1.0):

System Management

Oracle Application Management Pack provides monitoring alerts and notifications for Oracle Application Framework, Concurrent Processing, Forms services, concurrent managers and requests, Oracle Workflow services, Oracle Database, and middle tier/web servers.

Standardize monitoring settings across your Oracle E-Business Suite environments by utilizing templates to initially specify the monitoring settings and apply those to your monitored targets. You can save, edit, and apply these templates across one or more targets. A monitoring template is specified for a particular target type and can only be applied to targets of the same type.

Use the Concurrent Processing dashboard for a complete picture of concurrent processing on your Oracle E-Business Suite system of both current activities as well as usage statistics. Add concurrent programs and managers as user-defined targets and the system will collect metrics on activity and usage for them.

Configuration Management

Oracle Application Management Pack collects and stores the technology configurations of Oracle E-Business Suite to help centralize monitoring and tracking of changes to Oracle E-Business Suite technology stack configurations including host configuration, database configuration, middleware configuration, patches applied, key profile option changes, versions of technology components, and custom object changes.

Compare configurations between two or more Oracle E-Business Suite systems directly or by comparing configuration snapshots taken at different time intervals.

Configuration templates help to standardize the configuration standards across the company and reduce the configuration drift between various Oracle E-Business Suite instances.

Administrators can track changes by setting up notifications when any unauthorized changes occur to technology stack configurations.

Compliance Management

Compliance framework integration allows you to ensure your Oracle E-Business Suite is compliant with your IT audit requirements, as well as industry and regulatory requirements. Compliance Management dashboards show trends and compliance violations. Proactive, real-time compliance monitoring can significantly reduce the operational risk to business.

Change Management

Change Approval Framework

All changes made with Oracle-delivered patches or customizations in Change Management are processed through a change approval mechanism. A multi-level, hierarchical list of approvers can be set up for each Oracle E-Business Suite target. Auditors can review the change requests as welll as the approvals.

Patch Management

Patch recommendations for Oracle E-Business Suite application products and the technology stack components are made for specific Oracle E-Business target instances to help reduce or eliminate the research work by administrators. These patch recommendations help to ensure all Oracle E-Business Suite systems are current with Oracle-recommended patches. You can deploy database and WLS patches by creating Oracle Enterprise Manager patch plans directly from the patch recommendations user interface.

Using the Patch Management dashboard, you can manage all patching activities of your Oracle E-Business Suite instances and view patch worker logs. Patch Manager simplifies the online patching process and reduces human intervention to a great extent, eliminating the need for continuous monitoring of the patching process.

Patch Manager makes it easier for administrators to check for prerequisite patches and to download the patches in offline mode or directly from My Oracle Support.

Customization Management

Create and deploy custom packages across Oracle E-Business Suite instances similar to Oracle-delivered patches. Customization Manager can help ensure all customizations follow Oracle development standards and/or user-defined customization standards specific to your IT organization. Easily integrate Customization Manager with any third-party source code version control software. This feature also supports the creation of National Language Support (NLS) patches.
Customization Manager can discover customizations within your Oracle E-Business Suite systems and provide detailed reports online or in a spreadsheet format. This helps your organization keep track of the inventory of customizations and use the data for further analysis.

Cloning


Automated Cloning allows you to clone your Oracle E-Business Suite applications for testing, training, or development purposes, leveraging the Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Provisioning Framework. A step-by-step interview guides an administrator through the cloning process and facilitates scheduling of Oracle E-Business Suite instance. Administrators can modify the standard cloning procedure to include pre- or post-custom steps, seamlessly automating their cloning process from beginning to end.

Instance Administration

Administrators can use the Instance Administration user interface when adding and removing (scale in and scale out) application services, application nodes, and managed servers.

Google forms and regular expressions for response validation

I was kind of shocked with the proliferation of teachers now using Google Classroom to conduct classes, that the documentation for the Quiz sections of the Classwork assignments is quite insufficient (or presumes you’re an IT geek like me, and can just figure out what programming is available to you.)

The example situation is given by this Blog entry related to Google Classroom and students’ answers being marked Incorrect because on Short Text responses, every answer is matched as a “literal” string – that is, upper and lowercase letters MATTER (a lot!)

Link to:
Student’s answers were marked wrongly in a short answer quiz by Google Forms.

https://support.google.com/edu/classroom/thread/39155344

The odd thing is while Google provided a solution for simple e-mail address validation, and various numerical responses, it’s been horrible at dealing with text answers.

The answer is in the 3rd category of Response Validation: Regular Expressions. RegEx’s are commonly used in programming languages and OS shells (like Linux, Unix, HPUX, etc.) since when scripting various commands, we often need to parse parameters and do things with various input like file directory listings, and long lists of things separated by some arbitrary character (like a comma or a vertical bar character.)

Thus here in my example, dealing with a student who was marked with Incorrect answers simply because they didn’t provide the exact case required by the 3 answer versions entered by the instructor (e.g. “Any Dog”, “any dog”, “ANY DOG”) – and the student typed “Any dog” and got it marked Incorrect.

One more typical way to prevent this is specifying in the Quiz preamble the exact format responses you want as an instructor for the short answers. For example, “Please enter all short answers in lowercase letters only, with no leading or trailing space or tab characters.”

But a more practical way is exercising that Regular Expression engine that’s built into Google Forms.

My example question wanting a response from the student like “inner core” (preferably providing a graphic picture of the planet’s layers and just labeling them A/B/C/D/E would have been simpler, but maybe I’m testing vocabulary at this point.)

Selecting the Response Validation type “Regular expression” and using “Matches” the pattern: “^[A-Z]” is interepreted as meaning, “if the Short answer text contains any uppercase letters from A to Z” then display the warning text “Please use all lowercase answers only!” – and do not accept the answer, as submitted.

Regular Expressions can get really complicated, but if you think of them as basically describing what’s in a string of text and matching it as either TRUE or FALSE (and preferably keeping your Answer expectations limited unless you happen to be teaching a course in OS-level scripting, in which case, go ahead and get as complicated as you’d like…) I think you’ll find your student’s will be gently guided into providing the answers in the form you were thinking of when you prepared the Quiz.

And isn’t that what this was all about in the first place?

Here’s a link to a more thorough (and lengthy, and complicated) discussion of the power of Google Forms using Regular Expressions:

Westbound on the 15
Leaving Vegas behind
Plexiglas on the tables
Buffets politely declined
Up ahead in the distance
An agricultural stop
But instead of looking for fruits
Thermographic cameras pop

Checking out at TJ’s
Got my cauliflower rice
Karen comes in screaming
No masks, freedom and vice
Seems like peace and quiet
Are so far away
Yet only six months have passed
Since I heard them say

Welcome to our COVID California
Such a lovely place,
A chaotic space
Masking it up in our COVID California
Any time of year,
You’re not welcome here

Facebook’s full of bullies
Twitter’s gone insane
Newsom’s got himself a recall
Garcetti’s in his own lane
Health officials calling it quits
They can’t stand the heat
Hoping for some better stats
But Rona’s got us beat

Keeping socially distanced
Working from home all the time
Try to vacation out of the State
Find a 2 week mountain to climb
The health commissioners
All showed us the way
We ignored all the warning signs
Just to hear them say

Welcome to post COVID California
Such a lovely place,
An infected trace
Masking it up in post COVID California
Any time of year,
we’re infectious here

Silicon Valley’s tripping
Last year was so nice
“We are all just prisoners here
Of our own device”
Bears, coyotes and cougars
Have replaced the police
Nature’s just taking back it’s land
And we’re just here on lease

Is there a new vaccine
Can there be a cure
Acoording to the internet
You can never be sure
Here in the Golden State
You get what you receive
You can check out any time you like
But you can never leave”

EBS 12.2 Thousands of Invalid Objects from one Grant? Yes…

Remember that editioning support introduced the concept of stub objects – those that point to the “real” version of the object when multiple editions are present (which is pretty much all the time in 12.2).

This is why the synonym for an object like APPS.FND_USER points to a current editioned object named APPLSYS.FND_USER#, which may exist in different forms in multiple editions.

The trouble is when you perform a simple grant DDL:

SQL> grant SELECT on APPS.FND_USER to XXCUSTOM;

Even if you have the whole middle-tier services down, or follow the instructions in Granting Privileges On An Object May Cause Invalidations (Doc ID 1987947.1) if you then check your usual source for invalid objects (such as using $AD_TOP/sql/adutlrcmp.sql) you’ll be blessed with hundreds and perhaps thousands of invalid stubs, all of which need to be re-compiled lest you start receiving the dreaded ORA-04062: signature of package “APPS.FND_GLOBAL” has been changed (meaning it was automatically re-compiled while in-use by another process), or ORA-07445: exception encountered: core dump (something was valid, but a bunch of dependent stub objects no longer are valid.)

What I’ve discovered in 12.2.6, with an 11.2.0.4 DB, even if you issue the DDL commands in a proper patching cycle, you still get thousands of invalid stubs.  So, really there’s only one solution – use the new API (introduced in patch 19674458:R12.AD.C) and present generally after AD.Delta.6

--As APPS:
SQL> exec AD_ZD.revoke_privs('SELECT','FND_RESPONSIBILITY','MSC');

Syntax:
————
ad_zd.grant_privs(
X_PERMISSIONS in varchar2, /* comma-seperated permission list */
X_OBJECT_NAME in varchar2, /* name of APPS object or APPS synonym */
X_GRANTEE in varchar2, /* grantee schema or role */
X_OPTIONS in varchar2 default NULL); /* grant options, example: ‘WITH
GRANT OPTION’ */

exec AD_ZD.grant_privs(‘SELECT’, ‘FND_RESPONSIBILITY’, ‘MSC’,X_GRANT_TO_TABLE=>TRUE)
PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.

Instead of:

SQL> grant SELECT on FND_RESPONSIBILITY to MSC;

#C19TX Collaborate 2019 Networking Opportunity Events

Where I can keep track of the special events (note: these are not “parties” as so many people are misled to believe) at Collaborate (April 7-11, 2019 – San Antonio, TX). To attend one of these events:

  1. You’re registered as an Collaborate Attendee.
  2. You’re either a prospect, customer, or goodwill contact for the host.
  3. You visit the host’s booth at Collaborate in order to pick up whatever is required for entry.
  4. Do not just show up at the event and attempt to “crash” it – just spend your time at a regular #C19TX reception the same evening and you’ll still get plenty of party time.

Okay, an Autonomous Database is one that Wanders Off by Itself.

An odd Windows User Access Control error message.
Used without express permission from windowsinstructed.com

In a 2014 VoucherCloud.net (a coupon website) survey of the non-technical U.S. general public:

  • 11% believed HTML wss a sexually-transmitted disease
  • 51% believed a stormy weather condition would affect their access to the Cloud
  • 27% thought a gigabyte was a common insect in South America
  • 18% thought Blu-ray was a marine animal
  • 23% thought an MP3 was a Star Wars robot
  • 12% thought USB is the acronym for a European country
  • 42% said they believed a motherboard was “the deck of a cruise ship”
  • 77% could not identify what SEO means
  • 15% say software is comffortable clothing

However, 61% of the 2,392 respondents (18 and older) all thought it was important to have a good knowledge of technology.

That explains why in ZDNet’s Oracle’s Next Chapter: The Autonomous Database and the DBA (https://www.zdnet.com/article/oracles-next-chapter-the-autonomous-database-and-the-dba/) takes a bit of chewing to understand that when a vendor says “you’ll save $250K by moving to the Cloud,” that’s akin to someone saying, “You’ll save $40,000 by not buying a car, but renting it at $40/day from Hertz/Avis/Thrifty/Dollar.”

Well, yes, but not quite.  Rental agencies have those add-ons such as a Collision Damage Waiver, which can be thought of as the same as that 15% mandatory support fee needed on top of the core/sizing/machine-size fee, providing coverage in case something goes awry (or buggy, or BSOD’s for no known reason.)

And simply, if you stop paying, you don’t have a car/database/middleware/website.  If you do decide to opt for the rent-to-own option, just like the ubiquitous furniture rentals used by many seasoned relocation workers, doing so does cost much more than buying the furniture outright (but you don’t have to move it, and you get to turn it in, and trade-up or down when you wish, subject to the terms of your rental agreement.)

[Terms are important, as you will notice in the new Cloud On-Premise agreement, it does have a 4-year minimum term – similar to a limited term car lease.  And it comes with an early termination cost. And similarly it has “limited mileage” conditions, which if you go over your CPU/sizing/feature limits, you’ll simply be billed extra for that.  Convenience has costs.]

An autonomous database at this stage is similar to self-driving cars – given super-precise limitations, on a controlled environment, with well-defined conditions, yes, the Optimizer stays within the lanes and keeps the database engine humming along. Whence the odd situation is encountered, back to the driver/DBA to figure out what to-do and what went wrong.

R12.1 R12.2 Oracle eBusiness Suite – Moving FNDLOAD files by script

Oracle eBusiness Suite Logo
Oracle eBusiness Suite Logo

Most administrators become familiar with the FNDLOAD utility ($FND_TOP/bin/FNDLOAD) which is used to move various objects between instances that have been defined and set up using the front-end (Menus, FlexField setups, Users, Alerts, Concurrent Programs, et.al.)

Yes, you can manually re-enter all that information using the front-end forms and OAF pages, but you do have a utility to do that for you: FNDLOAD.

Typing FNDLOAD by itself with no parameters gives you a general idea of what kinds of parameters it takes:

You have not provided the required arguments for this program.
Usage: FNDLOAD logon 0 Y mode configfile datafile [ entity [ param ... ] ]

where
logon is username/password[@connect]
mode is either UPLOAD or DOWNLOAD
configfile is the configuration file
datafile is the data file
entity is an entity name, or - to specify all values in an upload
param is a NAME=VALUE string used for parameter substitution

But you can, like most of these utilities, create a script wrapper which makes the process more driven to support repetitive change migrations.

Here’s an example using many of the various parameters in a format that simply downloads the object from the source instance and uploads the resulting *.ldt file into the target instance.  Just comment out things you don’t want (or isn’t supported by your particular EBS version) and add new objects as they become supported by FNDLOAD in the future.

Top 7 Reasons Organizations Should Not Automatically Switch to Hosted Enterprise Technology

Cloud with No Symbol
Not Cloud?

A college education can make you think differently.  As I read the original article, the many times my Statistics professors pointed out that anyone can basically lie with numbers to make them support whichever position they want. This was equally true in a class I took on Mass Persuasion and Propaganda.

Thus I present this same article, with an inversion of the concluded statistical results of the IDG survey, with minor modifications to the explanations given to suit the results of the measures.  Respect given to the original author, Tori Ballantine, who is a product marketing lead at Hyland Cloud.  No offense is intended by this grammatical exercise in statistical results inversion.

Top 7 Reasons Manufacturers Should Host Enterprise Technology

Top 7 Reasons Organizations Should Not Automatically Switch to Hosted or Cloud Enterprise Technology

As one of the leading industries that was an early adopter of process automation, manufacturing is often ahead of the curve when it comes to seeking ways to improve processes — yet still has work to do in the technology adoption realm. While the trend for cloud adoption is increasing over on-premises solutions overall, some organizations, including manufacturers, are hesitant to make the transition to the cloud.

There are countless compelling reasons to transition to hosted enterprise applications. According to a recent survey from IDG, IT leaders at companies with 250+ employees, from a wide range of industries and company sizes, agreed on seven areas where cloud computing should benefit their organizations. These included:

Disaster Recovery

Disasters, both natural and man-made, are inherently unpredictable. When the worst-case scenario happens, organizations need improved disaster recovery capabilities in place — including the economic resources to replicate content in multiple locations. According to the IDG survey, about 33 percent, of IT leaders did not find disaster recovery as the number one reason they would move, or have moved to hosted enterprise solutions. By switching to a hosted solution, about 1/3 of organizations could not get their crucial application running as soon as possible after an emergent situation, and are therefore unable to serve their customers.

Data Availability

IT leaders know that data and content are essential components of their daily business operations. In fact, according to the IDG research, 45 percent of survey participant listed data availability as the second leading limitation cited about cloud enterprise applications being unable to provide. Access to mission-critical information, when they need it, wherever they are, is essential for organizations to stay competitive and provide uninterrupted service. With no noticeable increase to uptime compared to on-premises applications, hosted solutions did not provide 24/7/365 data availability.

Cost Savings

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the third most popular reason IT leaders seek cloud solutions is because of cost savings. Hosting in the cloud eliminates the need for upfront investment in hardware and the expense of maintaining and updated hosting infrastructure by shifting the cost basis to long-term operational costs. While hosting software solutions on-premises carries more than just risk; it carries a fair amount of operational costs. By hosting enterprise solutions in the cloud, organizations will reduce capital costs with a possible reduction in operating costs — including staffing, overtime, maintenance and physical security when centralized under a hosting provider.

Incident Response

The IDG survey found that 55 percent of IT professionals listed incident response as another area where cloud solutions provided no significant benefit over on-premises options. Large-scale systems can develop more efficient incident response capabilities, and improve incident response times compared to smaller, non-consolidated systems. As seconds tick by, compliance fines can increase along with end-user dissatisfaction. So having a quick incident response time is essential to reduce risk and ensure end-user satisfaction.

Security Expertise

The best providers that offer hosted solutions constantly evaluate and evolve their practices to protect customers’ data. This is crucial because up to 59 percent of IDG survey responders noted that security expertise as another leading reason they do not select cloud applications. Organizations with cloud-hosted applications could take advantage of the aggregated security expertise from their vendors to improve their own operations and make sure information is safe, but only by complying with externally-driven security standards that were either not enforceable due to application restrictions (legacy versioning, design constraints, third-party non-compliant architecture, et.al.) To ensure your content stays safe, it’s important to seek cloud providers with the right credentials — look for certifications such as SOC 1 and 2 or 3 audited, ISO 27001 and CSA STAR Registrant.

Geographical Disbursement

The IDG survey found that over 63 percent of IT professionals were not seeking geographical disbursement in where their data is stored. In the event of data unavailability in a local data center, having a copy of the data in a separate geographical area ensures performance and availability of the data sources, though resources to use the data may not be readily available as they are co-located in the local region of the primary data.

Expert Access

IT professionals seek hosted solutions because the best hosted software applications employ top-notch security professionals. Gaining access to these professionals’ insight helps ensure concerns are addressed and the software delivers on the organization’s needs.

In order to facilitate the best possible experience for your customers, it’s important to keep up with technology trends that give you the data and insights you need to provide quality service. For many firms, it means not only focusing on process automation on the manufacturing floor, but also within the internal processes driven by data. There’s a huge shift happening with how organizations choose to deploy software. In fact, according to a recent AIIM study, almost 25% of respondents from all industries are not seeking to deploy cloud software in any fashion. 60 percent of those surveyed plan to focus on a non-hybrid approach, focusing primarily on leveraging on-premises deployments, while 38 percent said they will deploy cloud solutions.

As noted in the seven areas above, the reasons for the lack of shift to selecting hosted enterprise applications are diverse and compelling. The cloud provides users with greater access to their information, when and where they need to access it — and doesn’t confine users to a on-premise data source. When combined with the other benefits of improved business continuity, cost savings, incident response, security expertise and expert access, organizations should carefully consider that their important information and content is more available and secure in the cloud.

 

R12.2 eBusiness Suite EBS – During ADOP phase = prepare data dictionary corruption missing parent

Adop-PrepareDuring an online patching session with ADOP, when the prepare phase checks the data dictionary integrity, you receive the following error:

R12.2 eBusiness Suite EBS – During ADOP phase = prepare data dictionary corruption missing parent:
Verifying data dictionary.

[UNEXPECTED]Data dictionary corruption detected. Provide details to
[UNEXPECTED]Oracle Support and ask for a bug to be opened against the
[UNEXPECTED]Online Patching component of Oracle Application Install.

[STATEMENT] Please run adopscanlog utility, using the command

“adopscanlog -latest=yes”

Issue:

The corruption is detected with the $AD_TOP/sql/ADZDDBCC.sql scriptis executed just prior to setting up the ADOP session.  This is also a mandatory check performed during pre-upgrade readiness checking for R12.2 upgrades.

Solution:

There is a rudimentary, but effective script supplied in $AD_TOP/patch/115/sql named adzddmpfix.sql (and a number of other adzd___ named scripts that address other data dictionary issues, such as the common TimeZone timestamp issues (Doc ID 2017686.1))

This script is run as SYS and requires all middle-tier services to be shutdown because it’s rebuilding all of the APPS synonyms for objects and recompiling afterwards.

#C18LV Collaborate 2018 Networking Opportunity Events

Where I can keep track of the special events (note: these are not “parties” as so many people are misled to believe) at Collaborate (April 20-26, 2018 – Las Vegas, Nevada). To attend one of these events:

  1. You’re registered as an Collaborate Attendee.
  2. You’re either a prospect, customer, or goodwill contact for the host.
  3. You visit the host’s booth at Collaborate in order to pick up whatever is required for entry.
  4. Do not just show up at the event and attempt to “crash” it – just spend your time at a regular #C18LV reception the same evening and you’ll still get plenty of party time.

My sessions for this year:
