Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Applications Manager - Version 12.1.3 to 12.1.3 [Release 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
OAM - Site Map - Maintenance - Register Flagged Files [IS_FLAGGED_FILE]

With the Registered Flagged Files tool, you can record any files in which you have made customizations. The Registered Flagged Files tool replaces the need to maintain the applcust.txt file. In previous releases of Oracle Applications, the applcust.txt file contains the record for all customized files.
The Registered Flagged Files tool displays the following information about customized files:
* Product abbreviation
* Directory where the files are located
* Name of modified file
* Comments you want to include

A .csv format file holds the list of customised files.

Register Flagged Files provides a central register for your customizations. Use it to import, export, add, delete and view records of customized files. This utility replaces the applcust.txt file used in previous releases of Oracle E-Business Suite.Oracle Applications Patching Procedures for details about Registered Flagged Files.

Goal

The files that can be registered appear can only be from product_tops.

For files that appear to be within $COMMON_TOP. Eg: UnitOfMeasuresVO.xml and TrackExpenseReportsVO.xml  both are located under $OAM_TOP/ap/oie/server

Using the navigation: OAM - Site Map - Maintenance - Register Flagged Files  the files from $COMMON_TOP do not get registered.
Import the csv for these $COMMON_TOP files reports "Error" and the line number related to the entries. All other entries get uploaded okay.

It appears that files are under $APPL_TOP register, whereas files under $COMMON_TOP do not register.

Can files under $COMMON_TOP be checked using register flagged files?
