1.0 OVERVIEW

Oracle provides Database patches for both proactive and reactive maintenance:

For more information on Database Patch Delivery Methods see "Oracle Database - Overview of Database Patch Delivery Methods - 12.1.0.2 and older", <Note 1962125.1> and "Patch Delivery Methods for Oracle Database 12c Release 2 (12.2.0.1) and Later Versions"
Oracle releases multiple types of Database patches for the Database and Clusterware installations:

  1. Quarterly Release Updates (Updates) and Quarterly Release Update Revisions (Revisions) - Applies to Database 12.2.0.1 and later
  2. Quarterly Patch Set Updates (PSUs) and Quarterly Proactive Bundle Patches (BPs) - Applies to Database 12.1.0.2 and prior
  3. One-off Patches - Applies to all Database versions

The Database PSU is available for Database installations and the Grid Infrastructure (GI) PSU / Database Proactive BP for Clusterware installations for Database 12.1.0.2 and prior. Starting with Database 12.2.0.1, the Quarterly Release Updates (Updates) will replace Bundle patches and Quarterly Release Update Revisions (Revisions) will replace the PSU's to improve the quality and experience of proactive maintenance.
For more information on Database Release Update (Update) and Release Update Revision (Revision) see My Oracle Support <Note 2285040.1> Release Update Introduction and FAQ.

These patches are released quarterly (Jan, Apr, Jul, Oct). There may be Monthly updates released in the first few months of a new release to accelerate stabilization.

Customers can get standalone one-off patches and diagnostic patches as Oracle has delivered for many years for Update, Revision, PSU or BP. Emergency patches will be delivered on request on top of any Updates or Revisions or PSUs or BPs for a supported release as long as technically feasible. If a fix has severe impact or issue is encountered by many customers, then fix will be considered for inclusion into the various bundles. Customers should update to the latest bundle that includes their emergency fix once it is available.

 

1.1 OJVM PSU can be installed in "Conditional Rolling Install" manner in certain use cases

Starting in January 2017, the OJVM PSU for 12.1.0.2 may be installed in a "Conditional Rolling Install" fashion for the following use cases:

  * No OJVM usage
  * OJVM used by non-critical jobs and programs
  * OJVM used by critical functions isolated as services
  * OJVM used extensively, not isolated, and downtime is tolerated
  * OJVM used by critical functions and minimal downtime is required

See My Oracle Support <Note 2217053.1> for more details.

Additionally, OJVM RU patches for 12.2.0.1 and 18c and greater which are dated after September 2018 may be installed in a rolling fashion as detailed in their respective README file instructions..

 

 

1.2 Proactive Replacement Interim Patches for Conflicts with Database Proactive Patches

So that customers can quickly consume new quarterly Database Proactive Patches, Oracle determines any existing interim patches that conflict with the new proactive patches, and generates replacement interim patches as needed.

For more information, see My Oracle Support <Note 1998563.1> Proactive Replacement Interim Patches for Conflicts with Database Proactive Patches.

1.2.1 Some Database Proactive Interim patches for Oct2021 are delayed

While the goal is for all proactive interim patches to be available on the release date, some interim patches are delayed for October 2021. The current estimate is that all of them will be available by 31-Oct-2021. We will update this note as interim patches are completed for each version.

 

1.3 Interim Patch Pros and Cons

Interium Patches (aka one-off patches) are special exception fixes provided for a specific bug. While it may be good to have an immediate fix for a bug, it also has severe future implications that a customer should consider before immediately requesting an Interium Patch. The better option is often to wait for the next quarterly Release Update patch bundle, where the fix is already included. For an additional discussion of the pros and cons of asking for one-off bug fixes instead of waiting on the next Release Update, see MOS <Note 2648544.1>.

 

1.4 Policy to obtain older Oracle Database Bundles, Updates & Revisions

Through our review of customer Service Requests (SRs), we find that customers frequently run into issues because they have unknowingly downloaded older database bundles. To help mitigate this going forward, when a customer tries to download bundles, updates (RUs), or revisions (RURs) older than 12 months, they will be redirected to information on newer versions. We will password-protect these older versions to prevent customers from unintentionally downloading them. Customers are still entitled to download these older versions, and can obtain them by logging an SR to request the password. This will also allow us to capture reasons for these requests so that we can formulate corrective actions to improve delivery and uptake of the latest versions.

 

1.5 Documentation of New Features and New Database Parameters

Small, important Cloud features or new database initialization parameters are not routinely introduced in quarterly patch bundles. When they are included, the new items are documented as follows:

  • Any 'Small, important Cloud feature' that might be included into a quarterly patch bundle would be included in a bug fix.. Therefore, the "Bug Fixed List" for each Release (cited in the tables below) would list any new features.
  • Any new or changed database initialization parameters that might be included into a quarterly patch bundle would be documented in the Oracle Database Reference manual section on initialization parameters. For example, for Release 19c refer to E96196-09

 

2.0 What's New

2.1 Bug fixes that may change an existing Optimizer execution plan

Beginning with database version 12.2.0.1 and beyond, database Bug fixes that may change an existing Optimizer execution plan will be delivered with the Bug fix disabled by default. Such fixes will have to be explicitly enabled after the patch has been applied. Details on this, including the commands to explicitly enable such Bug fixes are presented in MOS <Note 2147007.1>.

3.0 Post Release Patches

Oracle strives to complete preparations and testing of each database Quarterly Security Patch for each platform by the quarterly release date. Occasionally, circumstances beyond our control dictate that a particular database patch be delayed and be released a few days after the quarterly release date. The following table lists any current database patch delays and the estimated date of availability.
