Planning 11.1.2.2.300 Outline Load Utility Enhancements

I noticed that the recent patch release of planning 11.1.2.2.300 includes some additional functionality for the outline load utility that is worth going through.

With each release the outline load utility seems to gain extra functionality and it has just grown from strength to strength since its first appearance in 11.1.1.0

It is a utility that I know has made consultants lives much easier, it is simple to use and is now packed with functionality.

The enhancements in this patch release are

EPM 11.1.2.2 – Compact deployment

I thought I would put together a write up on compact deployment in 11.1.2.2 as judging by some of the posts on the OTN forums lately there is a bit of confusion around this area.

EPM Shared Services Registry cleaner

No doubt you aware of the EPM Shared Services registry but if you are a little unsure on what it is all about then here is the official Oracle description.

Created the first time that you configure EPM System products, the Shared Services Registry simplifies configuration by storing and reusing the following information for most EPM System products that you install:

External authentication with Microsoft Active Directory in ODI 11g – Part 3

Previously I went through setting up the Studio to use to external authentication and then the standalone alone agent, to be complete I briefly want to go over the process to enable authentication for the J2EE components so that means the agent and console.
