Information in this document applies to any platform.


This document details information and necessary setup for customers running application P96710 - Software Update Impact Analysis Tool.

Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Software Update Impact Analysis Tool (P96710) has been added to help manage your software update. 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 a ESU patch. 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 Bus/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.

This document provides detailed information about the "Software Update Impact Analysis Tool" extracted from the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools - Software Update Guide - "Chapter 6 - Using the Software Update Impact Analysis Tool".
