Oracle released patch set updates (details) to the EPM Suite in October 2015, including a lot of defect fixes for DRM (readme).

While this patch set update does not include any new functionality, there are some important issues that have been addressed, which may help with day to day operations. Highlights:

  • Issues with Firefox 38.x Support – which is a big one for EPM customers as this is one of the only browsers that is supported for PBCS as well.
  • Transaction history & Audit functionality issues – needed to get this fixed, because one of the biggest benefits of DRM is the transaction history being correct!
  • Various issues with saving/restoring/importing versions.
  • Orphans not showing up in orphan lists – if your organization runs on placing orphans or not having any orphans, this could be a major issue without this patch.
  • And as always, fixing various issues with DRG and Workflows.

Below are a list of the defects fixed in this patch. There is another patch that should be arriving in January 2016 that has new functionality and insight into DRM/DRG that I can’t wait to talk about! Watch for a post soon on the new DRM Analytics module!
