E1: ESU: CHA: What Are Special Instructions? Understanding Special Instructions (SI) and Automated Special Instructions (ASI) When Installing a Software Update (ESU or ASU) (Doc ID 1496449.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 27, 2019

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools - Version SP24 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Purpose

Special Instructions (SI) are additional steps that must be taken to enable certain functionality related to certain BUGs (previously known as SARs) as there are some actions that can not be automated in the Software Update Application Process. Special Instructions steps are included under the BUG/SAR documentation. They describe a series of actions that you must follow and execute in conjunction with a Software Update (ESU or ASU) install. As these actions are unable to be executed by the Software Updates install process, the user will follow manual procedures in order to correctly complete a Software Update install. The SI can be pre and/or post package instructions, however no matter what, they should be followed for each environment that you apply or promote the Software Update (ESU or ASU) to (unless the instructions say differently).

There are two types of Special Instructions:

  1. Manual Special Instructions, where the user needs to follow manual steps within the E1 software to achieve the desired results. Examples of Special Instructions are "Table Generation", "Index Generation", "OCM Mappings", "Data Entry", "Enabling Localization".
  2. Automated Special Instructions, where the Software Update Special Instructions are executed automatically, implementing the changes in the system. Examples of Automated Special Instructions are UDC Description Changes and Data Dictionary Glossary Changes.

This document lists concepts and information on what it is and how / when to apply Special Instructions (SI) / Automated Special Instructions (ASI) during a Software Update (ESU or ASU) patch install. 

Scope

Information pertains to all customers installing any Software Update (ESU or ASU) patch from EnterpriseOne XE to 9.2 application release level.
