EPM 11.1.2.3 Registry cleaner utility bug + fix

Quick update from me today about a bug with the registry cleaner utility in 11.1.2.3.

The utility was introduced and installed by default in 11.1.2.2 though it is also available in 11.1.2.1 once a patch has been applied.

Now I am not going to go through the utility as I have already wrote a blog about it which you can read about here.

FDMEE 11.1.2.3 – ODI Console and Studio

If you are deploying FDMEE 11.1.2.3 and have a requirement to install ODI Studio then you may be slightly confused if you read through the Installation and Configuration documentation as it currently states the following:

11.1.2.3 – Planning Outline Load Utility enhancements

I was looking at the new features for the planning Outline load utility and the following caught my attention -”Administrators can now use the Outline Load utility to export metadata to a relational data source.”

Going back to 11.1.2.2.300 there were quite a few enhancements to the outline utility:

  • Import metadata and data from a relational data source.

EPM Workspace integration with OBIEE update

In a recent blog I went through the process of integrating EPM 11.1.2.2 Workspace with OBIEE 11.1.1.7, as EPM 11.1.2.3 is available I thought I would test out the process covered in the blog to see if there are any issues.

In theory the process should be exactly the same and there is nothing yet to state otherwise but unfortunately I did hit a few problems.

11.1.2.3 – Remove EPM instance

Another new feature to hit the infrastructure side of 11.1.2.3 is the ability to remove EPM instances and the components deployed into that instance, this could be useful if you want to scale down a deployment and say consolidate components onto an existing machine or move an instance to a new machine, it could even be that you messed up and want to remove an incorrectly configured instance.
The following tasks will be performed during the instance removal for the components in this instance:

EPM 11.1.2.3 – Vertically Scaling Java Web Applications

One of interesting new features for EPM configuration in 11.1.2.3 is the ability to vertically scale based Java web applications through the configurator, yes it was possible to vertically scale in previous versions though I am not sure how supported the process was unless you were in the exalytics world and it certainly was not as slick as it is now.

At present the following EPM components do not support vertical scaling:

Planning 11.1.2.3 – Smart View metadata management

One of the new features in planning 11.1.2.3 is the ability to manage dimensional metadata through Smart View which I am sure many are keen to find out more about so here is my take on the new functionality.

The key highlights are:

EPM 11.1.2.3 Installation and configuration changes

For the last five years I have written a blog about the installation of each release of EPM 11 and this year there is going to be no exception as 11.1.2.3 has just been released.

This release brings a large number of bug fixes, new product features and changes to installation and configuration which I will be covering today.

EPM 11.1.2.3 available

Just a quick update from me, EPM 11.1.2.3 is now available on Oracle Software Delivery Cloud.

EPM Workspace integration with OBIEE

The recent release of OBIEE 11.1.1.7 finally added in the ability to provide single sign-on integration between EPM Workspace and OBIEE, yes the functionality has been available for a while if integrating Workspace with 10.1.3.4.2+ though this was a complete hack and required installing Shared Services 11.1.1.4 plus the biggest drawback was that it was not available for OBIEE 11g.
