This document was created to assist customers on troubleshooting the different scenarios, causes and resolutions for issues involving application P97610 - Impact Analysis Tool.
Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Software Update Impact Analysis Tool (P96710) has been added to help manage your software update patch install. This tool is used to gauge the level of impact a software update will have on your existing system. Users may access this tool from a client workstation or the deployment server.
You perform an impact analysis when you download ESUs. If you are performing a new installation, or if you are performing an upgrade, you do NOT need to do an impact analysis. If you do need to perform an impact analysis, you do so after you have installed the update on the deployment server, but before you deploy the update to another environment.
This is a list of features that this tool provides:
Identification of what Software Action Requests (SARs), objects, and control files will be applied to the system.
Special instructions for Bug / SARs.
List of objects associations with a SAR.
List of any dependent software updates.
Identification of any table conversions within a Software Update.
It can also be used to manage the application of the software update to your system. A system administrator may assign specific objects, control files, and SARs to individual users. Users who have been assigned objects can update the status of approved objects, SARs, and control files that have been assigned to them. They can also keep track of the status of their approvals. More details on understanding and use of the Software Update Impact Analysis Tool can be found under the Software Update Guides / Chapter 5 - Using the Software Update Impact Analysis Tool or E1: ESU: IAT: Understanding Software Update Impact Analysis Tool - EnterpriseOne 9.x (9.0, 9.1 and 9.2) <Document 1327643.1>. Refer to <Document 741506.1> - ESU Installation Guides.
