Required and Recommended Patches and Patch Sets For Oracle Business Intelligence 12c and Oracle Analytics Server (Doc ID 2070465.1)

Last updated on MAY 14, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Analytics Server - Version 5.5.0 and later
Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition - Version and later
Business Intelligence Server Enterprise Edition - Version to [Release 12g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The purpose of this document is to describe the available and recommended patches, including their release dates, for versions of Oracle Business Intelligence (OBI) 12c and Oracle Analytics Server.


Note: Oracle Analytics Server (OAS) is a "rebranding" of Oracle Business Intelligence.  The versions of Oracle Analytics Server align with the versions of Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC) and Oracle Analytics Desktop (OAD) under the "umbrella" of Oracle Analytics. You can think of  OAS 5.5 in conceptual terms or equivalency as OBI


The releases are cumulative releases; therefore due to the frequency and timing of the releases, there may or may not be an interim quarterly bundle patch released. Also, be mindful of the one year grace period of the error correction policy.

Both 'in-place' upgrades and new install 'out-of-place' upgrades are supported; therefore, you are encouraged to 'uptake' the patch sets regularly.

In addition to the listed specific patches, we would recommend the latest Infrastructure patches: Java, Weblogic, MapViewer, ADF (select JDeveloper in patch advisor), Oracle Platform Security Services (OPSS|OSS), Oracle HTTP Server (if used), etc. See the CPU|PAD document below.

*Note: OBI uses FMw infrastructure and common components.
*Note: OAS 5.5 uses FMw infrastructure and common components.
