11g to 12c BAM Upgrade clarifications (Doc ID 2817569.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 28, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle BAM (Business Activity Monitoring) - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Creating a New Oracle BAM 11g Domain is part of 11g to 12c BAM process upgrade


Creating a New Oracle BAM 11g Domain Before You Upgrade

You will continue to use your existing Oracle Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) 11g domain after the upgrade, so you must install BAM 11g in a new domain home before you upgrade. If you do not create a new (separate) BAM 11g domain, you will not have a functioning BAM domain after the upgrade and you will lose many of your artifacts and configurations.


If you do not create separate domain for Oracle BAM 11g, then you will lose BAM artifacts and BAM-related configurations only (SOA artifacts will not be impacted).

In addition, any composites referring to BAM artifacts (such as adapters) or new instances will be faulted during runtime.

Documentation above doesn’t have a clear explanation for these questions/scenarios

Q1) Can existing 11g binaries(Installed software WLS/Middleware) be used to create a new BAM11g domain or it is required to fresh install new 11g Middleware home and then create a new Oracle BAM 11g Domain ?
Q2) While creating a new 11g BAM domain, can existing 11g BAM specific schema be used or a new BAM11g schema needs to be created using RCU 11g ?
