Oracle Internet Directory (OID) Version 12c Bundle Patch (BP) (Including Directory Integration Platform / DIP) / Bundle Patches For Non-Fusion Applications (NonFA / NonP4FA) Customers (Doc ID 2355090.1)

Last updated on JULY 21, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Announcing availability of bundle patches for Oracle Internet Directory (OID) 12c (including Directory Integration Platform / DIP) for non-Fusion Applications (FA) customers.

   (Reference:  Document 2037090.1 - How to Know if You Have Fusion Apps (FA) OID or Regular OID 11g?)

The new OID bundle patches are cumulative so each new bundle patch contains all the previous fixes from earlier bundle patches. Thus bundle patches can be applied to the base versions or on top of any subsequent bundle patch. 

The bundle patches naming convention end with the .<release_date> suffix.

Bundle patches undergo extensive regression testing by the Oracle Quality Assurance team so are a lot safer to install than interim or one-off patches.

The OID bundle patches are part of CPU recommendations and the most recent CPU Advisory should be used to obtain the latest Patch Availability Document to include the OID bundle patch and other fixes.

If several fixes are needed and some of the fixes are present in a bundle patch then it is valid to request the missing fixes as a one-off patch on top of the latest bundle patch.
Fixes requested this way may go into later bundle patches, but may not, so this should be checked before applying a later bundle patch. One-off patches will not normally be compatible with subsequent bundle patches, but this will be checked when a new patch is requested.

These bundle patches are released and made available for one or more of the five (5) primary delivery platforms: Windows 64bit, Linux 64bit, Solaris SPARC 64bit, Solaris x86 64bit and AIX Power 64bit. They can also be requested for other supported Fusion Middleware platforms.



NOTE:  For OID 11g version, follow:   Document 1614114.1 - Oracle Internet Directory (OID) Version 11g Bundle Patch (BP) (Including Directory Integration Platform / DIP) / Bundle Patches For Non-Fusion Applications (NonFA / NonP4FA) Customers

Bundle patches should first be applied after installation and configuration of the base version is completed.
Bundle patches Do Not update the oidldapd version or the orcldirectoryversion/orclcompatibleversion values, so EM and ODSM console will still show the base version. The only way to know whether a bundle patch is applied is to collect the output of  opatch lsinventory  from the OID home and check the patch numbers listed.

The only way to know which bundle patch version is applied is to run  opatch lsinventory  and verify the applicable bundle patch number is shown as applied.
