Important Notes:

ALL Releases: Please follow the same steps to apply the BIP patch on each and every additional OMS system.

EM 13c NOTE: The BIP 12.1.3 Bundle Patch is based on the terminal bundle patch, no further one-offs would be possible for BIP 12.1.3.  No further BIP  12.1.3 Patch Bundles will be provided.  EM 13.4 is scheduled to implement BI Publisher Version

NOTE: DO NOT follow the README provided with the BI Suite Bundle Patch since it does not consider an EM-Integrated BIP Installation.

EM 12c NOTE: ONLY APPLY the Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher (BIP) patch extracted from the main BI Suite Bundle Patch to the EM-Integrated BI Publisher. DO NOT apply any other components of the BI Suite Bundle Patch to your EM-Integrated BI Publisher installation.

EM 12c NOTE: The BI Publisher used for Enterprise Manager 12c requires another MANDATORY (Overlay) PATCH (Patch 17888172) for EM compatibility. This patch needs to be applied along with the BIP Patch.
EM 12c NOTE: Version is the Terminal Release of Patch 17888172 (there will be no more created), so the latest version of Oracle BI Publisher Enterprise you can apply is: Patch 28119130 - BI Bundle Patch containing patch 27916893 - Oracle BI Publisher

EM 12c NOTE: Regarding Versions and Release Dates, Beginning with the October 2013 BI Suite Bundle Patch, Patches will have a suffix of .YYMMDD appended to the Patch Number.  For example, the BI SUITE BUNDLE PATCH is the Bundle Patch for, release on Oct-17-2017.

EM 12c NOTE: Enterprise Manager 12c uses BI Publisher Version and ONLY the<yymmdd> BI Publisher Patch (included in the BI Suite Bundle Patch) can be used to patch the BI that ships with EM.
