E1: ESU: The Visual Compare for UDC Descriptions and DD Glossary Tool - P96472 Application (Doc ID 1082000.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 30, 2023

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools - Version 8.98 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The Visual Compare for UDC Descriptions and DD Glossary Tool was added at application release level 8.11 base to enable you to review and apply text updates for Data Dictionary Glossaries and UDCs. You can see a side-by-side comparison of the new and old text values, which enables you to choose whether to accept the changes. When you install an ESU containing UDC Description and Glossary changes, an <esuname>_ASI.XML file is extracted to the Special Instructions folder on the Deployment Server and is located in the following directory:

The Visual Compare for UDC Descriptions and DD Glossary Tool, application P96472, is run from an Administrative client workstation within EnterpriseOne and applies the changes to the current environment.

During a Software Update (ESUs and ASUs) installation, new Data Dictionary glossaries and UDC descriptions are automatically done by the update, as seen on the Data Dictionary Glossary merge (R98403XB for GT92002) and UDC Merge (R9600042). For those changes that are not considered to be owned by JDE, such as existing glossaries and descriptions, you need to use the Visual Compare for UDC and Glossary application (P96472) to apply those changes.


This tool was first introduced in E1 systems over <Bug 10874128> : AUTOMATE SPECIAL INST - ITER 2 - SAR: 7481054
