Information in this document applies to any platform.
Over the next several months, your products will be migrating to the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). Your assigned CSM will be contacting you regarding specific details and timelines for the migration. The migration will require downtime and will be scheduled at a time that is convenient for your organization. At the time of migration, you will be upgraded to the most recent version.
Once the migration is complete, you will receive a new URL to access your Primavera products. Users will continue to log in using the same username and password.
This article will be updated with new information as it becomes available. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding
FAQ for OCI Migration
What is Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and why are we moving to it?
Oracle set an ambitious goal in building its second-generation cloud infrastructure: to create an infrastructure that matches and surpasses the performance, control and governance of enterprise datacenters, while delivering the scale, elasticity, and cost-savings of public clouds. The result, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, is built from the ground up to be an Enterprise Cloud, equally capable of running traditional multi-tiered enterprise applications, high-performance workloads, and modern serverless and container-based architectures. For more information, please see: https://cloud.oracle.com/en_US/iaas
Will the URL change as customers are migrated to OCI?
Primavera (P6, Unifier, Gateway, Analytics)
Oracle Primavera Cloud
New URL will be the OCI region plus the customer’s company name
There will be one URL per OCI region. Customers will default to their most recent tenant and have the ability to switch tenants from within Primavera Cloud.
How will customers know that their URL has changed?
Customers will receive an email when the migration is complete that includes the new URL. The admin will receive a password reset email at the same time. A static notification page will be available providing the new URL(s) for a temporary period of time post migration to help advise end users and update their bookmarks.
Will customers need to change their password after migration?
No, customers' user names and passwords will be migrated automatically. Only the designated service admin will need to reset their password as part of the migration process.
Will all inactive users be migrated as well with active users?
Yes, inactive and active users will be migrated.
Are there changes to the maintenance groups?
There will be no changes to the maintenance groups at this time. This may change as we improve our operations in OCI.
Are there any certificate changes that customers need to be aware of?
Customers using P6 Web Services for integration will need to import a new certificate. There are no other certificate impacts. A Knowledge base article will provide instructions for downloading the new certificate.
For more information, see: Certificate Updates Needed for Migration to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) (Doc ID 2491906.1)
Do customers need to update or modify their integrations?
All integrations will need to be modified to point to the new URLs.
Primavera Cloud customers will need to switch to OAuth 2.0 for authentication as the Primavera Cloud APIs no longer supports Basic Authentication - Primavera Cloud REST API Authentication In OCI (Doc ID 2510665.1)
Note: Custom integrations require TLS 1.2.
Are there any impacts to the mobile applications?
From GBUCS to OCI, the authentication method for Primavera Cloud service mobile apps has changed from Basic auth to OAuth 2.0, which has been on the mobile technical roadmap for some time as OAuth is a more secure approach. It's uncertain right now whether we can seamlessly make this transition or whether users will have to log out, update the URL, and log back in.
Primavera Cloud Mobile users MUST sync their devices in GBUCS prior to the migration so that they do not lose unsynced data on the their devices. This includes Primavera Cloud Portfolio, Primavera Cloud Projects, Primavera Cloud Progress, and Primavera Cloud Field
OCI uses Identity Cloud Service (IDCS) for identity management. What improvements does this offer customers?
Primavera P6, Unifier, Gateway, Analytics customers will continue to manage their user administration via the Cloud Administration Portal.
Primavera Cloud customers can continue to create users from within Primavera Cloud but management of user accounts can now be done by each customer via IDCS
All customers will have some additional functionality:
- Identity Federation (the ability to connect to Customer's LDAP) is now available in Primavera Cloud with IDCS integration.
- Customizable email templates and logos for email notifications such as welcome email and password resets
- Customizable log in screen that will allow customers to use their own logos and images
- IDCS Administrators have access to all of their users accounts and can unlock user accounts
- Customers can update and change their password policy in IDCS.
- SEE IDCS Documentation for more info - https://docs.oracle.com/en/cloud/paas/identity-cloud/uaids/manage-oracle-identity-cloud-service-password-policies1.html

- Performing Self Service Tasks - https://www.oracle.com/webfolder/technetwork/tutorials/infographics/idcs_selfservice_gs_quickview/index.html#
IDCS has many features that customers could access. What is included with their CEGBU subscription?
Our customers are entitled to the functionality that is included in the Oracle Identity Cloud Service Foundation service. If features outside of the Foundation Service are utilized, there will be charges incurred. The following document explains what functionality is included in the Foundation licensing and other options: https://docs.oracle.com/en/cloud/paas/identity-cloud/uaids/oracle-identity-cloud-service-pricing-models.html
What changes are needed for SAML to work with P6 and Unifier in OCI?
SAML metadata will need to be re-imported. IDCS provides a wizard to help customers configure. Customers will now have the ability to self-manage their SAML configuration.
Unifier and P6 EPPM are available to be configured with SAML via IDCS self service at this time. P6 Professional and P6 Web Services can be enabled for SAML via SR.
See the following Knowledgebase Article for more information and instructions - Enabling Federated Identity Single Sign-On (SSO) Through SAML 2.0 For Primavera Products Hosted In Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) (Doc ID 2497983.1)
If an admin updates the email templates to include their application URL/landing page, does that same template apply to all products associated with the IDCS domain?
IDCS Tenant is shared by all applications. Any change in template will be reflected for all products using that IDCS domain. This includes all Oracle products and not just within the CEGBU.
Is there only one IDCS admin? What if there are different organizations using different products and have unique admins for each such product?
One service admin is created during initial provisioning. Once provisioned, the service admin can add multiple IDCS admins. This Service Admin cannot be disabled through Primavera Administrator (Formerly Cloud Admin) unless a new one has been added.
