Last updated on JULY 01, 2019

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Base Platform - Version 12.1.0.4.0 and later
Enterprise Manager for Fusion Middleware - Version 11.1.1.7.0 to 11.1.1.9.0
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The general steps are as follows:

  1.     Download the BI Suite Bundle Patch (see <Note 1276869.1> for latest releases)
  2.     Extract (unzip) the Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher (BIP) patch from the BI Suite Bundle Patch.
        NOTE: You ONLY need to apply the Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher (BIP) patch.  You MUST NOT attempt to apply the entire BI Suite Bundle.
  3.     Download the Overlay Patch 17888172
  4.     Setting Environment Variables
  5.     Stop the OMS
  6.     Rolling back the Overlay Patch 17888172
  7.     Applying the BIP Patch
  8.     Apply the NEW Overlay Patch 17888172
  9.     Start the OMS

    Further details about the Overlay Patch are included in the following defect:

    - <Bug 17888172> - ORACLE BI PUBLISHER PATCH BUG FOR PRIVATE EMCC PS3 MANDATORY INSTALL PATCH

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 11.1.1.9 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 12.2.1.3.

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 11.1.1.7.180717 is the Terminal Release of Patch 17888172 (there will be no more created), so the latest version of Oracle BI Publisher Enterprise 11.1.1.7.x you can apply is: Patch 28119130 - BI Bundle Patch 11.1.1.7.180717 containing patch 27916893 - Oracle BI Publisher 11.1.1.7.180717

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 11.1.1.9.171017 is the Bundle Patch for 11.1.1.7, release on Oct-17-2017.

EM 12c NOTE: Enterprise Manager 12c uses BI Publisher Version 11.1.1.7.x and ONLY the 11.1.1.7.<yymmdd> BI Publisher Patch (included in the BI Suite Bundle Patch) can be used to patch the BI that ships with EM.
