A commenter on this blog, Ben, shared how to get the final WebLogic 10.3.6 patch for Hyperion / Oracle EPM 188.8.131.52. We may download this patch without needing to get a password from Oracle Support. The patch number is:
You need to be on an active Oracle Support contract for your EPM 184.108.40.206 in order to access the patch.
Ben also indicated we may pull up an Oracle Knowledge Base article that lists the final patches for various components of the EPM 220.127.116.11 suite. The KB # is:

3.3.22 Oracle Hyperion Infrastructure Technology
If your 18.104.22.168 environment includes Essbase, we can expect more Essbase 22.214.171.124 patches to come out in 2022, because (for now) EPM 11.2.x uses Essbase 126.96.36.199 under the covers.
As of EPM 188.8.131.52, Essbase 12c is still not certified for Hyperion Planning. Once an 11.2.x comes out that certifies Essbase 12c for Planning, I'll take a closer look at it.
As per the 184.108.40.206 README, EPM 11.2.x patches are expected to be released Quarterly according to this rough schedule (Oracle Corporation's Safe Harbor applies here): January, April, July, and October.
On Oracle's EPM 11.2 documentation hub, click "Essbase" on the left-hand side. Among other things, we are explicitly told to use Essbase 220.127.116.11:
"Use Essbase 18.104.22.168, which is compatible with Enterprise Performance Management Release 11.2.x"
Consult the 22.214.171.124 Install+Config Guide for more information about using Essbase 12c in an EPM 11.2.5+ environment.
Many of you are on PTO this week, so you might not notice this post until early 2022.
Have a Happy New Year!

What about EPM 126.96.36.199? Not affected?
I meant to reply about Log4j and if 188.8.131.52 is affected. Can't seem to find answers as everything just says 184.108.40.206. probably because we are last client on 220.127.116.11 😜ReplyDelete
18.104.22.168 is technically out of support. Your primary issue is the newest Welogic patches for 10.3.6 want you to be running Java 7 or higher. Unless my knowledge is outdated on this point, Oracle has not certified a Java upgrade for EPM 22.214.171.124 and prior.
My gut says Java 7 would work in 126.96.36.199, but it won't be certified by Oracle unless they have a change in heart. So at this time, I cannot recommend it.
WLS 10.3.6 and Java 7 patches were released yesterday. Does this mean that they need to be applied on 188.8.131.52? I was under the impression that Q4 2021 were going to be the final ones..ReplyDelete
Patch 33518566: Oracle JDK 7 Update 331
Patch 33494814: SU Patch [HYG5]:WLS PATCH SET UPDATE 10.3.6.0.220118
Hello! You could attempt them, provided the HYG5 patch isn't password-protected. You would absolutely want to back up your system first.Delete
My concern for your specific case is 184.108.40.206 has fallen out of Extended Support, so if something goes wrong and you open an SR with Oracle, they might push back when they learn you getting a patch that dated after the 220.127.116.11 expiration date.
I asked Oracle. Long story short, their reply was: Java YES, WLS NO.Delete
Interesting. Appreciate the update!Delete
