Useful Tools for Determining Your Current Patch Level

Oracle Configuration Manager

The Oracle Configuration Manager (OCM) centralizes configuration information based on your Oracle technology stack. OCM uploads this information to Oracle Customer Configuration Repository and replicates it to My Oracle Support so you can view the information. OCM informs you about alerts and lets you perform health-checks against your Oracle database. The Configuration Manager tracks important Oracle and system details and collects essential system data to help you manage and service your configurations. Collected data is sent via HTTPS to Oracle Support.

For more information on OCM:

  • <Document 728989.5> - Oracle Configuration Manager Installation and Administration Guide

E-Business Suite Patch Wizard

The Patch Wizard is a tool which comes installed as part of the E-Business Suite (EBS) products and can be accessed via Oracle Applications Manager. This utility allows EBS customers to compare the patches already applied against a list of all recommended EBS patches. Recommended patches can include high-priority patches or patches that update to a new code level, such as release update packs (RUPs), product family RUPs, and pre-upgrade patches. The Patch Wizard will not apply the patches but it enables you to do an impact analysis before you decide to apply the patches.
