EPM 11.1.2.x in 2022

As 2021 is rapidly drawing to a close, it is appropriate at this time to shame remind people to either move to the EPM Cloud or upgrade on-premises Hyperion / Oracle EPM to Release 11.2.x.

While the official support documents say EPM is supported through Dec 31, 2021, the truth is it is already out of support.  Good luck getting a new patch for it.  Security patches for EPM effectively ended with the October 2021 Critical Patch Update (OCT2021CPU).

Due to the log4j security headache, we might see some new patches trickle out, but these are targeted toward EPM 11.2.x and things seem to evolve daily (as of this writing).

Multiple people have contacted me about how difficult it is to gain access to the last Oracle WebLogic 10.3.6 security patch.  You CAN get it.  The trick is you have to convince the person working your Oracle SR that, yes, you are paying your support contact, and thus, yes, you are entitled to the WebLogic 10.3.6 patch that is included with your support.

If you are still on, or Lord forbid an earlier version, you want to wrangle your 2022 fiscal budget to accommodate an upgrade to 11.2.x.  Your IT department will thank you because you'll be moving off of Java 6 or Java 7 (assuming you did the 6->7 swap earlier in the year).

And if you are still running Hyperion Enterprise 4, I award you no points.


  1. If you mean WebLogic (patch 33172858), you can get it via EPM Patch 33471254 with no password, and no arguing with Oracle!

    Under 2796575.1, they have a list of EPM friendly patches under "3.3.22 Oracle Hyperion Infrastructure Technology"
