Last updated on AUGUST 30, 2023

Applies to:

Identity Manager - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


This document describes the end to end steps needed to manually apply the October 2020 CPU/SPU/BP patches and any prerequisite or co-requisite patches for the underlying components used in an Oracle Identity Manager installation.

  • These steps do not include specific backup or testing steps which are assumed to be performed as needed on a case by case basis.
  • The steps in this document assume Linux variables and pathing. For Windows environments, adjust your steps accordingly.

  • For OIM 12c clustered environments which are *not* using shared storage for the binaries, these steps must be performed on each binary installation location.
  • While applying or rolling back patches using the opatch apply and opatch rollback commands, responses will be needed, as you will be prompted to verify the patch should be applied (or removed) and then verify that the servers are down and the environment is ready for patching. The prompts and responses are not shown in the examples below.

For details on obtaining these patches as a single bundle and applying them using the stack patch bundle automation tool, see Document 2657920.1 - Stack Patch Bundle for Oracle Identity Management Products.
