Goal

All of customer's custom permissions for folders in the reporting catalog got wiped out when their POD was upgraded,

the permissions on the folders default to the default permissions as they see BI Administrator and BI Consumer application permissions on nearly every folder.

 

They have also noticed that all the shared folders besides the custom ones revert back to the default settings by Oracle.

Meaning the Fusion Tap, Marketing, Project, Sales, Service, etc. all revert back to everyone seeing these.

Customer was purposely hiding these folders from their consumers and users since these folders don't apply to them, Do Customers have to revert back every time they have a patch to their custom permissions?


Customer stored their custom reports in /shared/Human Capital Management/Core HR,

the expectation is that customers are not supposed to modify permissions
on /shared/XYZ folder.

During patching, when our code detects conflicts (implying customer modified it), the folders get copied to /shared/backup_p<PatchNumber> and then the original contents get overwritten by the patch.

So Customers need to keep this in mind that whenever they modify any Oracle shipped content (i.e. factory), the new patch would overwrite it while moving their modified copy to /shared/custom folders.
