Recommended Installation for Security
Consider installing Oracle Governance, Risk and Compliance Controls (GRCC) with Oracle Fusion Applications. Although not required, GRCC can serve as part of the user provisioning flow to ensure that proper controls for security exist.

Update netstat Command in the runInstaller.bat file


If the provisioning failed with an IIR installation failure, check the console output for the following error message : Install cannot be Completed. One of the chosen ports is already being used "=================================================== " "IIR Install Failed. Exiting ..." "=================================================== " Check if the IIR ports being used are available. For more details about the ports being used, see Chapter 3 Setting Up Informatica Identity Resolution in the Oracle Fusion Applications Post-Installation Guide, 11g (11.1.2.0.0), Part Number E22380-01. Workaround In the <REPOSITORY_BASE>/installers/iir/runInstaller.bat file, modify the netstat command used under the Port Scan section as follows. 1. Change netstat -an | find /i "%IIR_PORT_1%">nul to netstat -an | find /i ":%IIR_PORT_1% ">nul by inserting a colon before %IIR and a space between 2% and ">. 2. Make the same changes for all the netstat commands used for all the remaining Information Identity Resolution (IIR) ports from IIR_PORT_2 to IIR_PORT_9, resulting in the following. echo ----------------------------------

Oracle Fusion Applications Transaction Database


Before Installing Oracle Database
Before you install Oracle Database using the Provisioning Wizard, you must shut down all Oracle and Oracle-related services. Failure to do so will result in database installation failures.

Unique Identifier Limitation


When installing a transaction database, the database installer requires a unique identifier (UID) of six digits or less. The Provisioning Wizard prerequisite check for the Install an Applications Transaction Database option gives an error if the UID has seven or more digits. Workaround Switch to a user whose UID is six digits or less.

Length of PATH Environment Variable


Before installing Oracle Database, verify that the length of the PATH environment variable is less than 900 characters. Use this following command to check the character count: env | grep ^PATH= | wc -m

Database Installation
When installing a transaction database with the Provisioning Wizard, you must add the following variable to the command line syntax used to start the wizard: export SKIP_ROOTPRE=TRUE

Kernel Parameter Value


Before you install Oracle Database using the Provisioning Wizard, make sure the value of the kernel parameter shmmax is greater than the value of system global area (SGA) Memory. The value of SGA Memory (sga_target) is 9 GB in the default Database Configuration Assistant (DBCA) template. If you are running DBCA using the production DBCA template packaged with Oracle Fusion Applications Provisioning, the value of the SGQ Memory is 18 GB. Ensure that shmmax > (shmall * shmmni) > SGQ Memory, where shmmax, shmall, shmmni are kernel parameters. For example, to retrieve the values of these kernel parameters, use the following command: user@host> /sbin/sysctl -a | grep shm kernel.shmmni = 4096 kernel.shmall = 3145728 kernel.shmmax = 12884901888 To set the value of a kernel parameter: user@host> /sbin/sysctl -w sys.kernel.shmmax=value

Provisioning Process
Absolute File Path of Oracle Fusion Application Home Directory
Due to a known limitation of the WebLogic platform, the absolute file path field in a provisioning plan for APPLICATIONS_BASE, the Oracle Fusion Application Home directory, must not exceed 59 characters. Otherwise, provisioning always fails to patch WebLogic and you cannot use WebLogic Smart Update to patch WebLogic either. This limitation applies to all supported operating systems. Workaround During creation of a provisioning plan, ensure that the absolute file path of Oracle Fusion Application Home does not exceed 59 characters before provisioning a new application environment.

Mandatory Additional Preparation for Provisioning on Linux


Perform the following mandatory steps to prepare the environment on a Linux x86-64 server environment where Oracle Fusion Applications will be provisioned. 1. Verify that provisioning hosts have sufficient entropy values. If the value is less than 1000, increase it to a greater value using rngd command. Run these commands as the root user for the current session: To check the entropy value: cat /proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail To increase the entropy value: rngd -r /dev/urandom -o /dev/random Alternatively, to make the rngd service start automatically after host reboot, enter the following into a script and run the script as the root user. #! /usr/bin/perl -w # minimum required bytes to be happy with the device my $want_bytes = 8192; # list of commands to check my @clist = qw(/sbin/rngd /usr/sbin/rngd); # list of device names to check my @slist = qw( /dev/hwrandom /dev/hw_random /dev/hwrng /dev/intel_rng /dev/i810_rng /dev/urandom ); use Fcntl qw(O_RDONLY); # find the rngd binary my $command; foreach (@clist) { -x && ($command = $_) && last; } # stop if rngd isn't installed defined $command || die "$0 error: rngd is not installed\n"; # look for a hw random device my $source; my $continue = 1; $SIG{'ALRM'} = sub { $continue = 0 }; foreach my $test (@slist) {

To make the change effective immediately but not persist through a reboot set fs.file-max = number to fs.file-max = 6553600. To make the open file limit change permanent (survive after server reboot), edit the /etc/sysctl.conf file as the root user as follows: a. Find the line fs.file-max = number b. Change number to 6553600. c. Save the file. d. Either reboot or as the root user run this command to modify the kernel parameters at runtime (without reboot): /sbin/sysctl p /etc/sysctl.conf

Risk of Stuck Thread in the Business Intelligence (BI) Domain

Enabled SSL Checkboxes Must Be Unchecked


Errors may occur in the postconfiguration phase of provisioning if any Enabled SSL checkboxes are selected (checked) in the Identity Management Configuration page and Access and Policy Management page of the Provisioning Wizard. When creating a provisioning plan, uncheck all Enabled SSL checkboxes in the Identity Management Configuration page and Access and Policy Management page of the Provisioning Wizard. This includes the following checkboxes:
Identity Store Enabled SSL OIM Endpoint Enabled SSL OPSS Policy Store SSL Enabled

If these boxes are checked, you may encounter errors in the postconfiguration phase in the Oracle Business Intelligence (BI) Cluster: [2012-01-17T15:14:03.000+00:00] [OracleBIClusterControllerComponent] [ERROR:1] [] [] [ecid: ] [tid: 77078700] [46137] CSF error encountered.

Installation Locations Specified Using Symbolic Links Causes Provisioning to Fail


On Unix platforms, specifying installation locations using symbolic links instead of full file paths, causes provisioning to fail. You must enter full file path in the Provisioning Wizard when asked to provide any file path, such as Oracle Fusion Applications Home, Application Configuration Directory, and so on. Using symbolic link paths cause provisioning to fail in later phases.

Provisioning Wizard Without Bash Command


On Oracle Solaris systems, when you run provisioningwizard.sh without using the bash command, the following error is displayed: Checking java and fusion repository setting... ./provisioningWizard.sh: CMD_ARGS=: is not an identifier Workaround Run the Provisioning Wizard as bash provisioningWizard.sh instead of ./provisioningWizard.sh.

Port Range Assignment Limitation


A port range assignment that overlaps with port number 11020 prevents successful completion of provisioning. Workaround Before you start provisioning an environment, confirm that the port range assignment in the provisioning plan does not overlap with port number 11020 in any provisioning plan. Otherwise, the provisioning process cannot complete..

Release Notes

Oracle Fusion Applications 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.5.1) February 13, 2012

If you plan to use different languages for SOA Human Workflow, perform the following steps either before provisioning a new environment or to manually enable languages after an environment has already been provisioned. Workaround Before Provisioning a New Environment 1. Create copy of the soa-hwf-configureLocaleList.py file in <FRAMEWORK_LOCATION>/provisioning/provisioning-build/ and name it soa-hwf-configureLocaleList.py.orig. 2. Edit soa-hwf-configureLocaleList.py by changing the two 0's, '0, 0' to '0, 1' in following line from: params = jarray.array([i, languageToCountryDict[i], variantFlag, 0, 0], Object) to: params = jarray.array([i, languageToCountryDict[i], variantFlag, 0, 1], Object) 3. If you plan to use the Arabic (ar) or the Dutch (nl) languages, then add the following lines after languageToCountryDict['fr']=': languageToCountryDict['ar']='' languageToCountryDict['nl']='' 4. Save the file. Then begin provisioning a new environment. Workaround After An Environment Has Already Been Provisioned To enable languages for SOA Human Workflow if your environment has been provisioning without the workaround above, follow the steps described in the "How to Change the Language in Which Tasks Are Displayed" section of the Oracle Fusion Middleware Developer's Guide for Oracle SOA Suite, 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.5.0), Part Number E10224-09. Instead of clicking the Language in the Name column, click Enable. Then set its value to 'true'. You will need to perform this workaround for every SOA cluster in every product family domain for every language where you want to enable additional languages. To ensure the changes take effect, restart the SOA clusters or servers.

If they match and no other error displays in the provisioning wizard UI, then you can safely ignore this error and continue the configure secondary phase on the other hosts, if any, or proceed with the post configure phase. If you see other errors, then resolve them before proceeding to the next step.

Correct Java Platform Security (JPS) Root Node Creation


Provisioning a new Oracle Fusion Applications environment does not create the JPS root node correctly. If you use a pre-existing JPS Root Node provided by Oracle Identity Management (IDM), the following steps are not necessary. You want to create a new policy store JPS Root Node in LDAP during the provisioning process, you must add privileges to the policy store read/write user in the policy store before provisioning a new environment or the provisioning fails. Workaround: 1. Create a file named rwuserpolicy.txt (or any file name of your choice) in a host that connects to the LDAP policy store server 2. Enter the following four lines in this text file. dn: cn=directoryadmingroup,cn=oracle internet directory changetype: modify add: member member: <PolicyRWUser DN> Where <PolicyRWUser DN> is the distinguishing name of the bind user for the policy store created by IDM config tool.

12. Restart Oracle Business Intelligence Presentation Services for the change to take effect.

Oracle Business Intelligence Domain Patches Remove Financial Report Definitions


When patches are applied to the Business Intelligence (BI) domain, existing financial report definitions are removed. Workaround Backup the financial report definitions by exporting the reports, batches, or folders of reports and then reimporting them after the patch has been applied.

Oracle Business Intelligence Patches Fail in Online Mode


ON IBM AIX on POWER Systems (64-bit), Oracle Business Intelligence patches fail in online mode. Workaround Set the LIBPATH in the console windows where you want to execute the fapmgr command. For example, if the Oracle Business Intelligence home is located in the <APPLICATIONS_BASE>/fusionapps/bi directory, then you must set the LIBPATH as: LIBPATH=<APPLICATIONS_BASE>/fusionapps/bi/bifoundatio n/server/bin:<APPLICATIONS_BASE>/fusionapps/bi/bifoun dation/web/bin:APPLICATIONS_BASE/fusionapps/bi/bifoun dation/odbc/lib64:APPLICATIONS_BASE/fusionapps/bi/bif oundation/odbc/lib:APPLICATIONS_BASE/fusionapps/bi/li b

Information Identity Resolution (IIR) Installation on the CRM Host


On IBM AIX on POWER Systems (64-bit) GSI environment, where Oracle Fusion Customer Relationship Management (CRM) host is remote from the main host, if the postconfigure target, private-instal-iir-sw, fails during the Information Identity Resolution (IIR) installation on the CRM host, then you must manually install IIR. Workaround Perform the following steps: 1. In the <REPOSITORY_BASE>/provisioning/provisioning-build/crmbuild.xml file, comment out the following entry: <!-- Last step, install CRM DQ IIR software and startup license server --> <guardedAntCall target="private-instal-iir-sw <guardedAntCall target="private-instal-iir-sw </guardedAntCall> 2. Rerun the postconfigure target after running the cleanup target and the restore target. 3. After provisioning is complete, install Information Identity Resolution (IIR) manually. Perform the following steps: a. Ensure the following prerequisites are complete before you install:
IIR wrapper and native bits are already staged under the

Fusion Applications repository, which is the REPOSITORY_BASE .

1. You can ignore this error but you should review other errors in the Validate phase. If no other errors are found, click Cancel to terminate the provisioning process. The final provisioning summary file that describes the installation and includes the URL to the Oracle Fusion Applications home page is not created. Instead, you can go to the Oracle Fusion Applications home page directly at http://<address of the external virtual host for the common domain>:<external port, if applicable>/homePage. You can find the address and port of the external virtual host in the summary file created by the provisioning plan. 2. Alternatively, you may rerun the validate phase after making the following changes: a. Create a copy of the framework_location/provisioning/provisioningbuild/webgate-build.xml file and name it webgate-build.xml.orig. Then open webgate-build.xml for editing. b. Search for the line that contains the following text: <validateWebPageStatus Url ="http://${${component.key}.host.host.name}:${${compo nent.key}.webtier.port}/${${component.key}.diagnostic s.url}" responseCode="401" /> 3. Replace this text with the following text: <validateWebPageStatus Url ="http://${${component.key}.host.host.name}:${${compo nent.key}.webtier.port}/${${component.key}.diagnostic s.url}" responseCode="200,401" />

Jobs Based on Configuration


Oracle Fusion Applications includes a list of jobs that are relevant to the configuration that you have chosen to provision. These jobs are a set of external groups in the LDAP directory.

Copyright 2011, 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.

Release Notes

Oracle Fusion Applications 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.5.1) February 13, 2012

When provisioning certain configurations, jobs from other configurations are needed to complete some business processes. If you select the Oracle Fusion Sales, Oracle Fusion Projects, or Oracle Fusion Procurement configuration, then you must also select the Oracle Fusion Enterprise Contracts configuration. If you select Sales or Marketing, then you must also select Customer Data Hub configuration.

Enabling Configurations That You Set Up During Provisioning


If the SOA Server is up and running for the Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM), Oracle Incentive Compensation (IC), Oracle Procurement (PRC), Oracle Projects (PRJ), and Oracle Supply Chain Management (SCM) domains at the end of the provisioning startup phase, use the Administration console to restart those servers. This allows certain configurations that were done during provisioning to take effect.

Correctly Starting a Server


In order to correctly start a server in an Oracle Fusion Applications provisioned environment, you must always use Node Manager instead of the generic Oracle WebLogic Server scripts. This ensures that the fusionapps start parameters will always be used by the server process(es). Once the Administration Server is up, you can start the Managed Server by going to the Administration console because this console uses Node Manager to start Managed Servers.

Post-configuration
When you run the postconfigure phase in Provisioning, there is no process to alert you if the Node Managers are not running. Workaround To check the status of Node Managers, run the following command before running the postconfigure phase: ps -aef|grep Nodenetstat -a|grep 5556 If the Node Managers are started, you will receive a message about the status of the Node Managers on that port. For example: <Mar 23, 2011 3:09:26 PM> <INFO> <Secure socket listener started on port 5556>

Oracle Fusion Applications 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.5.1) February 13, 2012

Release Notes

If the Node Managers are not started, start them using the following steps. 1. Enter the following command on the command line. setenv WLST_PROPERTIES "Dweblogic.security.SSL.trustedCAKeyStore=<APPLICATION S_BASE>/fusionapps/wlserver_10.3/server/lib/fusion_tr ust.jks" where <APPLICATIONS_BASE> is the root directory under which the provisioned environment resides. 2. Within a WLST session invoked with wlst.sh/wlst.bat from <path_to_domain_home_of_the_domain>/fusionapps/oracle_common/ common/bin, enter the following commands. a. Connect to the domain. nmConnect('<node_manager_user_name>','<node_manager_p assword>','<node_manager_machine_name>','< node_manager_machine_port>', '<domain name>','<path_to_domain_home_of_the_domain>')
Note: Use the node manager user name and password, which is entered by the provisioning user when entering parameters for generating the provisioning plan.

For example a connection to the Common Domain might be: nmConnect('bootstrap_admin','welcome','weblogi c1. company.com','5556', 'CommonDomain','/oracle/fusion/top/instance/do mains/weblogic1.company.com/CommonDomain') b. Start the server nmStart(<WLS_server_name>) For example a connection to the Common Domain might be: nmStart(AdminServer)

Oracle Fusion Projects Preconfigure Phase Error


On Windows x64 platforms after the install phase, the following error occurs in the Oracle Fusion Projects domain during the preconfigure phase: Exception Reference from config plan WCOWLCSConnection not found in the connections.xml caught during editing WCOWLCSConnection. Workaround You do not need to perform this workaround if your platform is not Windows x64. After the install phase, make these changes on the Microsoft Windows x64 platform: 1. Rename <APPLICATIONS_BASE>\fusionapps\prj\deploy\EARProjectsFiancials _connectionPlan.xml to <APPLICATIONS_BASE>\fusionapps\prj\deploy\EARProjectsFiancials _connectionPlan.xml.orig. 2. Using the user interface of an unzip utility, such as WinZip, or 7-zip, extract EarProjectsFinancials_connectionPlan.xml (case sensitive) from <REPOSITORY_LOCATION>\installers\fusionapps\Disk1\stage\Comp onents\oracle.fusionapps.prj.deploy\11.1.1.5.1\1\DataFiles\filegroup3.j ar to <APPLICATIONS_BASE>\fusionapps\prj\deploy\
Caution: The file names are case sensitive. EARProjectsFinancials_connectionPlan.xml is the old name. EarProjectsFinancials_connectionPlan.xml is the new name.

3. Continue with the preconfigure phase.

Role Segregation of Duties Context Root


The Oracle HTTP Server configuration needs to include the role segregation of duties context root for Oracle Identity Management. Workaround 1. Stop the Oracle HTTP Server. For details, see the Oracle Fusion Applications Administrators Guide 11g, (11.1.1.5), E14496-01. 2. Locate the idm.conf file of the Oracle Identity Management domain supported by the Oracle HTTP Server. <IDM_DOMAIN>/config/OHS/<ohs_name>/moduleconf/idm.co nf 3. In the idm.conf file, copy the <Location/spml-xsd> block and paste it below to create a new block for role-sod. 4. In the pasted text block, replace spml-xsd with role-sod 5. Restart the Oracle HTTP Server. 6. Make this change to all the Oracle HTTP Servers that support the Oracle Identity Management domain by repeating Steps 1-5 for all Oracle HTTP Servers for the Oracle Identity Management domain.

Oracle Fusion Applications Search


Oracle Fusion Applications Search is embedded within Oracle Fusion Applications. This section lists known issues in the following areas: General Issues in Oracle Fusion Applications Search Oracle Fusion Applications Search Filters and Crawls

General Issues in Oracle Fusion Applications Search


Oracle Fusion Applications Search May Become Unavailable
Oracle Fusion Applications Search may become unavailable if a search application for a provisioned product family cannot be authenticated because its associated plug-in has become unavailable. In cases where two or more of the following product families are provisioned, only one search application is used as the identity plug-in endpoint for user authentication.
Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Financials and Supply Chain Management (FSCM) Human Capital Management (HCM)

73

Oracle Fusion Applications 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.5.1) February 13, 2012

Release Notes

Depending on your deployment topology and the order in which product families were provisioned, the actual identity plug-in endpoint varies. The search application registered as the Oracle Fusion Applications Search identity plug-in endpoint needs to be set up for High Availability. Out of the box, each of the three search applications is deployed and installed into a WebLogic Services (WLS) cluster with one server.
Note: Oracle Secure Enterprise Search (SES) provides the fundamental search capability of Oracle Fusion Applications Search.

Workaround Set up high availability by adding more WLS servers into the cluster. See the Oracle Fusion Middleware High Availability Guide, 11g (11.1.1), Part Number E10106-15, for the steps required to add more managed servers into the cluster. Use the following steps to find the search application used as the Oracle Fusion Applications Search identity plug-in endpoint. 1. Log into the Oracle SES Administration UI with the administration user name and password at the following URL. http: <host_name>:<port>/search/admin/control/login.jsp For example: http://adcdab04.us.oracle.com:7016/search/admin/cont rol/login.jsp 2. Click Global Settings 3. Click Identity Management Setup The values for HTTP endpoint for authentication and the User ID identify the search application used. For example: User ID = FUSION_APPS_CRM_ECSF_SEARCH_APPID means that the CRM search application is used. User ID = FUSION_APPS_HCM_ECSF_SEARCH_APPID means that the HCM search application is used. User ID = FUSION_APPS_FSCM_ECSF_SEARCH_APPID means that the Financial search application is used. 4. Change the HTTP endpoint for authentication and the User ID values to the other corresponding active search application.

Oracle Fusion Applications Search May Limit Some Users Access


Users who run searches before all of the components of Oracle Fusion Applications have completely started up, may lose access to data normally found through Oracle Fusion Applications Search. These users continue to have access to the data through other user interface pages, but Oracle Fusion Applications Search ignores their authorization to search for some types of data. Workaround The Oracle Secure Enterprise Search configuration parameter preserveStateSecurityFilterOnError controls this behavior. The default setting is tuned for maximum availability of the Oracle Fusion Applications Search feature, except during the system startup. If it is difficult or impractical to prevent all user access to the system during the short period of time while various components of the Fusion Applications environment are starting up, then you may choose to reset this setting from the default value (false) to true. To alter the default setting, see detailed instructions for setting the preserveStateSecurityFilterOnError in the queryConfig section of the Administration Object Types chapter of the Oracle Secure Enterprise Search Administration API Guide, 11g Release 2 (11.2.1), Part Number E17595-04.

Oracle Fusion Applications Search Wildcard Option


Wildcard search is disabled by default so that the Secure Enterprise Search wildcard characters, ? and *, are treated like any other special character. That is, they are ignored and treated like spaces. Without wildcard search, you are limited to searching word stems. Workaround Set the search:enableWildcardQueries configuration parameter to true. For detailed instructions, see the Oracle Secure Enterprise Search Administration API Guide, 11g Release 2 (11.2.1), Part Number E1759504.

Release Notes

Oracle Fusion Applications Search Security for Items Is Incomplete


The security model for Oracle Fusion Product Information Management is not yet fully reflected in Fusion Applications Search. Some users with access to Item selection UIs are able to find Items through Search, but see an error when they attempt to drill down to the Item workarea for details. Workaround If you have implemented a detailed security model for your Item Master in Oracle Fusion Product Information Management, it may be preferable to leave Items out of your Fusion Applications Search implementation. Only searchable objects that are deployed and crawled using Oracle Enterprise Manager are exposed through Search in the UI, so Items are not available through search until you take action.

Oracle Fusion Applications Search Crawls


Incremental Crawls Fail When No Records Are Present in the ECSF_SEARCHABLE_CHANGE_LOG Table
Before running an incremental crawl, Oracle Enterprise Crawl and Search Framework (ECSF) checks for records in the table ECSF_SEARCHABLE_CHANGE_LOG. If no prior crawl (on any Searchable Object) has entered records in this table, an incremental crawl can fail because zero records are found there. This only occurs if the table has never held any records, not merely because the table is currently empty. Workaround Connect to the Oracle Fusion Applications Database and execute the following SQL commands that insert a record into the change log table and then delete it. Insert into ECSF_SEARCHABLE_CHANGE_LOG (EVENT_INSTANCE_ID,OBJECT_NAME,CHANGE_TYPE,CRAWL_STAT US,ID_TYPE,PK_NAME_1,PK_VALUE_1,CHANGE_DATE,CREATED_B Y,CREATION_DATE,LAST_UPDATED_BY,LAST_UPDATE_DATE) values (9999999999999999,'dummy','ERROR','N','PK','dummy','d ummy',to_date('10-JUN-10','DD-MONRR'),'dummy',to_timestamp('01-JAN-11 12.00.00.000000000 AM','DD-MON-RR HH.MI.SS.FF

Intermittently Incomplete Crawls


Crawling Oracle Fusion Applications data for use by the Oracle Fusion Application Search feature may be intermittently incomplete due to long running HTTP requests. This results in incomplete data being indexed and available for Oracle Fusion Application Search.
Note. Data that is not crawled due to this issue is logged and crawled in the next scheduled incremental crawl.

A WebLogic server configuration setting is available to resolve this issue. Depending on the Oracle Fusion Applications products installed, the configuration change needs to be applied to one or more of the following managed servers:
CRM Search Server (crmSearch) FSCM Search Server (fscmSearch) HCM Search Server (hcmSearch)

Workaround Increase the value of Complete Message Timeout for the search servers. Use the following steps to configure the Complete Message Timeout value to address the issue. Perform the following steps for each of the CRM, FSCM, and HCM domains. 1. Log into the administration console (of CRM, FSCM, or HCM domain). 2. Click Lock & Edit on the left side. 3. Navigate to Environment > Servers. 4. Click on <Search server name> such as CRM Search Server, HCM Search Server, or Financial Search Server. 5. Click on the Protocols tab.

Run the script using the following command: java weblogic.WLST increase-complete-messagetimeout.py <server-name> <url> <user-name> <password> <timeout-value> 14. Restart the servers.

Search Crawl Status May Be Misleading


When incremental crawls are run on a regularly scheduled basis (rather than started by an administrator) the SES Administration page reports an error status upon completion even when the crawl has completed normally. You see the following error after clicking on the Scheduled status link on the details page for the Schedule. EQG-10039: ***Crawler raised the following error for data source [data source] at time [mon dd, yyyy hr:mi:sec]*** oracle.security.jps.az.internal.common.scanner.Policy ChangeScannerThread run INFO: Policy store cleanup thread started. Workaround The correct status is available by drilling down to the log file associated with the Schedule and scrolling to the summary report near the end of the log.

Deadlocked Search Crawls


If multiple crawls are run simultaneously on objects that have not been fully crawled in past runs, deadlocks may occur in the SES code that handles registration of new document attributes not previously seen during a crawl. A typical error of this kind might look like:

Oracle Fusion Applications Search May Not Crawl All Data Correctly in All Languages
The procedure for running crawls in a given language is to set the FND_LANGUAGE Profile Option for the following three pillar-specific crawl APPIDs to the language desired prior to starting the crawl process: 1. FUSION_APPS_CRM_ECSF_CRAWL_APPID 2. FUSION_APPS_FSCM_ECSF_CRAWL_APPID 3. FUSION_APPS_HCM_ECSF_CRAWL_APPID For languages that have more than one locale (such as Simplified Chinese vs. Traditional Chinese) there is an issue with ECSF that prevents translated labels from being correctly incorporated into the body of documents for indexing.

Common Applications Configuration


Manage ESS Job Definitions
The list of Enterprise Scheduler job definitions on the Manage Job Definitions page is not restricted to the job definitions belonging to the Java EE application of the setup task. For example, when users access the Manage Custom Enterprise Scheduler Jobs for HCM Benefits task from the Setup and Maintenance area, all job definitions are available, not just those specific to Oracle Fusion Benefits. Workaround Users must select the setup task for the application that corresponds to the application of the job definition that they want to create or edit. Otherwise, the job will not function properly. For example, the user wants to edit a Benefits job definition, which is available from any job definition task. However, the user must select the Manage Custom Enterprise Scheduler Jobs for HCM Benefits task to open the Manage Job Definitions page and edit the Benefits job definition.

Set-Enabled Reference Data


The Reference Data Set data role template is not automatically invoked when creating a new reference data set. This prevents implementation users from accessing reference data sets to perform tasks such as those for defining work structures in Human Capital Management where set-enabled reference data is required. Workaround Manually generate the Reference Data Sharing data roles in the Authorization Policy Manager using the "Manage Data Role Templates" task in Oracle Fusion Applications.

Profile Options
Profile Option Caching
Multiple successive attempts to launch tasks for managing specific profile option values from the Setup and Maintenance work area within the same session may erroneously result in the previously selected profile option being displayed, or a blank page being displayed, due to caching issues.

Release Notes

For example, within the same session you execute Task A for managing values for a specific profile option A, then Task B for managing values for a specific profile option B. Caching issues may prevent task B from properly displaying the values for profile option B.

Flexfields
A flexfield is an extensible data field that is divided into segments and available for capturing enterprise specific information.

Incorrect Deployment Diagnostics


When a patch containing flexfield artifacts is applied to Oracle Fusion Applications, the Diagnostics report may report that flexfield deployment tasks were successful even if some of the flexfields failed. Workaround To confirm that all flexfields deployed successfully, you must review the log file and check for any error messages related to flexfields.

Required Manual Redeployment After Setup Migration


When exporting or importing setup data for the following business objects from one Oracle Fusion Applications instance to another, flexfields are not automatically redeployed.
Application Descriptive Flexfield Application Extensible Flexfield Application Key Flexfield

Workaround Manually redeploy flexfields after data migration.

Value Set Changes


After value set changes, affected flexfields are not automatically redeployed. The deployment status of extensible flexfields is not automatically updated to Edited based on value set changes, as is the case for descriptive flexfields and key flexfields.

Log Files and Diagnostic Testing


Diagnostic Testing Configuration
You must complete certain manual configuration steps in order to perform diagnostic tests using the diagctl.sh command line interface. Workaround 1. Use an administrative account that is entitled to log in to the operating system of an Oracle Fusion Applications domains primordial host. 2. Navigate to the <APPLICATIONS_BASE>/domains/<primordial_host_name>/C ommonDomain/config/fmwconfig/ directory, where <APPLICATIONS_BASE> is the path to the root directory under which the provisioned environment resides and <primordial_host_name> is the name of the primordial host. 3. Copy the jps-config-jse.xml file to the directory that contains the diagctl.sh file, <APPLICATIONS_BASE>/fusionapps/atgpf/bin. 4. Navigate to <APPLICATIONS_BASE>/fusionapps/atgpf/bin. 5. Using a text editor of your choice, add the following lines to your copy of the jps-config-jse.xml file, placing the new lines between <jpsContexts> and </jpsContexts>. <jpsContext name="appsdiag"> <serviceInstanceRef ref="credstore.ldap"/> <serviceInstanceRef ref="policystore.ldap"/> <serviceInstanceRef ref="idstore.ldap"/> <serviceInstanceRef ref="idstore.loginmodule"/> </jpsContext> 6. Save the jps-config-jse.xml file 7. As a general precaution, Oracle recommends that you make a backup copy of the diagctl.sh file.

8. While still in the <APPLICATIONS_BASE>/fusionapps/atgpf/bin directory, use a text editor to open the original diagctl.sh file and locate the following line in the file: APPLCORE_LIBDIR="${JBHOME}/jdev/oaext/adflib" 9. Modify this line to read as follows: APPLCORE_LIBDIR="${MW_HOME}/atgpf/atgpf/modules/oracl e.applcore.model_11.1.1" 10. Save the diagctl.sh file 11. For any administrative account that needs to use the diagctl.sh command line interface, use a command such as the following to set the DIAGJPSCONFILEFILE environment variable to the location of the modified jps-config-jse.xml file. setenv DIAGJPSCONFIGFILE <APPLICATIONS_BASE>/fusionapps/atgpf/bin/jps-configjse.xml

Note: For successful authentication, the DIAGJPSCONFIGFILE environment variable must be correctly set for any operating system session in which the diagctl.sh command line interface is used.

After you complete these steps, you can run diagctl.sh from the primordial host.

Scheduling Diagnostic Tests


The ability to schedule diagnostic tests is supported only if the Oracle Fusion Applications configuration that you have provisioned includes Oracle Enterprise Scheduler.

Release Notes

This keeps the field read-only, but allows the File Based Data Import process to successfully import data into this field.

Session Impersonation
Restricted Search
User Search for assigning impersonation grants does not return any results when searched for a CRM enterprise role user. The search logic is restricted to the application stripe that the search flow is hosted in, such as FSCM. For example, a search for channel_operations_manager will not return any results in the Search UI. Workaround Impersonation User search for 11g (11.1.1.5.1) checks users for the Impersonation privilege in only a single application stripe, such as Financials and Supply Chain Management (FSCM). Any enterprise roles that need the Impersonation privilege must be mapped to the FND_IMPERSONATOR_DUTY_ROLE. For example, map the CRM Channel Manager job role to the FND_IMPERSONATOR_DUTY_ROLE in the FSCM strip. To map an enterprise role to the FND_IMPERSONATOR_DUTY_ROLE, perform the Manage Duties in the Authorization Policy Manager. You can access the Manage Duties task by starting in the Setup and Maintenance Overview page and searching for Manage Duties.
Note: The environment must be centrally controlled to use the Authorization Policy Manager for this role mapping task.

1. In the Authorization Policy Manager, search for FND_IMPERSONATOR_DUTY_ROLE in the stripe where impersonation needs to be extended to other application stripe users, such as the FSCM stripe. 2. Open the FND_IMPERSONATOR_DUTY_ROLE application role and view the External Role Mapping tab. Two enterprise roles are mapped by default in the FSCM stripe. 3. To add a role to the mapping, click Add and then Search. From the search results, select the enterprise role provisioned to users who require the Impersonation privilege, such as the CRM Channel Manager job role.

Rule-based Assignment Attribute Processing


The Oracle Fusion Assignment Managers Rule-based Assignment feature has known limitations when processing different types of attributes. An error occurs when processing conditions that compare attributes of certain types using the greater than, greater than or equal, less than or less than or equal operators. For example, the error occurs under the following condition: BudgetAmount is greater than or equal to DealSize, where BudgetAmount is of type Long and DealSize is of type BigDecimal. This issue also affects attributes of type Integer when compared with BigDecimal type attributes. Workaround In the case of Assignment Rule Administration, only one user should edit Sales Lead Assignment Rules at a time. The same workaround applies to Opportunity Management Assignment Manager Rules. In the case of Maximum Number of Candidates, set the Maximum Number of Candidates value for each candidate and work object combination to the same value. In the case of the Rule-based Assignment Attribute Processing, there is no known workaround.

Setup
Limitations with Importing Project Types
This issue affects Oracle Fusion Project Foundation and Oracle Fusion Project Costing. You can enter a default capitalized interest rate schedule on the project type. Because project types are imported before capitalized interest rate schedules are imported, the default capitalized interest rate schedule may not exist in the target environment when the project type is imported. If the default capitalized interest rate schedule does not exist in the target environment, the project type will not be imported. Workaround Perform one of these tasks:
Import capitalized interest rate schedules before importing project

types.
Enter capitalized interest rate schedules manually in the target

environment before importing project types.


Enter project types with capitalized interest rate schedules manually in

the target environment.


Enter project types in the source environment without a default

capitalization rate schedule and manually enter the schedule on the project in the target environment after the project types are imported.

Limitations with Importing Resource Breakdown Structures


This issue affects Oracle Fusion Project Foundation. The planning and billing resource breakdown structures that are eligible for import are limited based on the resource type. All resources on a planning or billing resource breakdown structure must be one of the following resource types:
Nonlabor Resource Revenue Category Event Type Person Type Supplier Item Item Category User Defined

If a resource breakdown structure contains a resource type that is not included in this list, the structure will not be imported into the target environment. Workaround Perform one of these tasks:
Remove all resources from the resource breakdown structure in the

source environment that are not one of the resource types listed above before exporting the resource breakdown structure.
Reenter the resource breakdown structure manually in the target

environment for the resource types that are not supported.

Task 3 Start the Administration Servers You must start the Oracle WebLogic Server Administration Server for the CommonDomain domain in the Oracle Fusion Setup product family from a shared disk. The applications and other product families depend on topology information in the Administration Server in the Oracle Fusion Setup product family. For more information about running the Administration Server from a shared location, see Section 3.2. Optionally, if you need to perform administration tasks for other product families, start the Administration Server for those product families. When you start the Administration Server, you also start the applications that run on the Administration Server, including the WebLogic Server Administration Console and Fusion Applications Control. To start an individual Administration Server: 1. Start the host-specific Node Manager for the domain for which you want to start the Administration Servers: a. Set the WLST_PROPERTIES environment variable: setenv WLST_PROPERTIES "Dweblogic.security.SSL.trustedCAKeyStore=WL_HO ME/server/lib/fusion_trust.jks" where WL_HOME is the Oracle WebLogic Server home directory under the fusionapps Middleware subdirectory. b. Start Node Manager with the startNodeManagerWrapper utility from the Oracle WebLogic Server home directory under the fusionapps Middleware subdirectory: UNIX WL_HOME/common/nodemanager/host_name/startNode ManagerWrapper.sh Windows WL_HOME\common\nodemanager\host_name\startNode ManagerWrapper.cmd c. For all the hosts, verify that Node Manager is running. For example, on UNIX platforms, enter the following command: netstat a|grep 5556

Change the first paragraph in the section, which says: "If you are using Active Directory as your directory store you need to disable the Access Control Flag in OVD. To do this perform the following steps:" to say: "To Disable the Access Control Flag in OVD, perform the following steps:"

Update Descriptions of IDSTORE_HOST and IDSTORE_PORT in the Properties Files Used with idmConfigTool.sh prepareIDStore
In Chapter 11 Preparing Identity and Policy Stores, Step 2 in each of the subsections under Section 11.4 Preparing the Identity Store lists contents of a properties file and describe the properties in Step 2. The descriptions of IDSTORE_HOST and IDSTORE_PORT should be updated to say: IDSTORE_HOST and IDSTORE_PORT are, respectively, the host and port of your Identity Store directory. If you are using a non-Oracle Internet Directory directory, then specify the Oracle Virtual Directory host (which should be IDSTORE.mycompany.com). If your Identity Store is in Oracle Internet Directory, then IDSTORE_HOST should point to Oracle Internet Directory, even if you are fronting Oracle Internet Directory with Oracle Virtual Directory.

Add a Read-only User to cn=orclFAUserReadPrivilegeGroup


Add the following steps to Section 11.4.5 Creating Users and Groups for Oracle WebLogic Server.

Changes to Section 11.4.6 Creating Access Control Lists in Non-Oracle Internet Directory Directories
The section 11.4.6 Creating Access Control Lists in Non-Oracle Internet Directory Directories should read as follows: In the preceding sections, you seeded the Identity Store with users and artifacts for the Oracle components. If your Identity Store is hosted in a nonOracle Internet Directory directory, such as Microsoft Active Directory, you must set up the access control information (ACIs) to provide appropriate privileges to the entities you created. This section lists the artifacts created and the privileges required for the artifacts.
Users and groups. ACIs to the users and groups container are

provided in Oracle Internet Directory. Set them manually for other directories. The Oracle Identity Manager/Oracle Access Manager integration and Fusion Applications require the following artifacts to be created in the Identity store.

Group with read privileges to the users container (orclFAUserReadPrivilegeGroup). Configure the local directory ACIs so that that this group has privileges to read all the attributes of the users in the Identity Store. Group with read/write privileges to the users container (orclFAUserWritePrivilegeGroup)

Systemids. The System ID container is created for storing all the

system identifiers. If there is another container in which the users are to be created, that is specified as part of the admin.
Oracle Access Manager Admin User. This user is added to the OAM

Administrator group, which provides permission for the administration of the OAM console. No LDAP schema level privileges are required, since this is just an application user.
Oracle Access Manager Software User. This user is added to the

groups where the user gets read privileges to the container. This is also provided with schema admin privileges.
Oracle Identity Manager user under System ID container. Password

policies are set accordingly in the container. The passwords for the users in the System ID container must be set up so that they do not expire.
Oracle Identity Manager administration group. The Oracle Identity

Manager user is added as its member. The Oracle Identity Manager admin group is given complete read/write privileges to all the user and group entities in the directory.
Reserve container. This container is internally used by Oracle Identity

Manager for temporarily reserving the login IDs of users. Hence, permissions are provided to the Oracle Identity Manager admin group to perform read/write operations

Run pack and unpack on IDMHOST1 when Propagating Domain Changes in Oracle Access Manager Chapter
In Section 12.3.3 Propagating the Domain Changes to the Managed Server Domain Directory, run both the pack and the unpack command on IDMHOST1.

Changing Oracle Access Managers Login Attribute


This content should appear before Validating Oracle Access Manager in Chapter 12. By default, Oracle Access Manager verifies usernames by checking the value of the attribute cn in LDAP. In most cases, you want Oracle Access Manager to validate your user using the uid field instead.

Managing the Password of the xelsysadm User


This section should be added to Chapter 17 Integrating Components, just before Section 17.2.6 Validating Integration. After you integrate Oracle Identity Manager with Oracle Access Manager, two xelsysadm accounts exist. One is the internal account created by Oracle Identity Manager. The other is the account you created in the Identity Store in Section 11.4.4, Creating Users and Groups for Oracle Identity Manager. The xelsysadm account located in the LDAP store is the one used to access the OIM console. If you want to change the password of this account, change it in LDAP. You can use ODSM to do this. Do not change it through the OIM console.
