FA Patch: Need Clarification On The Flexfield NameSpaces Merge After Applying Patch

(Doc ID 2101306.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 01, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Fusion Functional Setup Manager - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


After applying a patch the following output is displayed, which is not very clear on what steps need to be taken.

"This patch contains JEE changes. You must manually stop and restart the managed servers on which these applications are deployed.
Refer to the Diagnostics report that is generated at the end of the patching session to find the location of the JEE file(s)

This patch contains Flexfield changes. You must manually Perform the Flexfield NameSpaces Merge using the "flex_namespaces_merge.py"
 WLST command.
Refer to the Oracle Fusion Applications Patching Guide for more information."

The patching guide provides only vague information and more explicit instructions are needed in order to perform this step.

If a patch is applied in offline mode which includes flexfield changes that require a NameSpaces merge, then the manual steps in this section must be performed.
