NOW.jpgHave you been asking for a guide on a new install for Agile PLM 9.3.4 on Linux? We've listened.


Our main initiative is to serve you, our customers, better by providing the tools to successfully implement and sustain your Agile PLM environment. Your feedback has influenced more Support collaboration and we have pulled together to get this information from the minds of our engineers to your computer screen.


Master Note: Build all-in-one Standalone Agile Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) 9.3.4 System on Oracle Linux Server (OLS) 6.7 (Doc ID 2058744.1) will help to familiarize you with the process of installing a simple Agile 9.3.4 PLM system on a standalone server. The following assumptions have been made: you have your operating system installed and all patches applied.


Before you begin, ensure that your hardware and software meet the specifications for the Agile Product Lifecycle Management application. The Capacity Planning Guide is a great place to find this information. The configuration you choose is up to you, so pick what will work best for your Agile PLM system.


It is also important to review the Agile System Requirements found in Chapter 2 of the Database Install Guide. If your system meets all the requirements and specifications, you’re ready to install! Review the aforementioned Note to get started.

disk.PNGHave you been trying to figure out a way to free up some disk space?

 

Well, if you are using Agile 9.2.2.5 or above and do not use Agile PLM Data Mart/BI then consider truncating the "A_DW_TXN_LOG" table.

 

This table records all DML actions and can get rather large. So for those not using DM, truncating this table can free up a lot of disk space, especially in larger databases.

 

For more information on how to truncate this table please review the following document:

     Can the "A_DW_TXN_LOG" Table be Truncated in the Agile Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Database? (Doc ID 828904.1)

Have you often hoped you could debug your own Agile issues? Have you often thought to yourself, "I wish Oracle would tell me what they needed before logging the Service Request?"

For Agile File Manager, Attachments, Folders, and Thumbnail Issues, you can.

 

Oracle has been working hard to improve our time to resolution on the service requests (SR) you raise by automating the information and diagnostic gathering steps. 

Agile PLM’s first Guided Resolution with file validation is now available for Agile PLM Framework and Agile Product Collaboration service requests when you select the File Manager, Attachments, Folders, and Thumbnails problem type. This problem type will now automatically ask you to provide a specific set of files, depending on how you answer the questions we ask. 


When logging a new SR for the Agile File Manager, Attachments, Folders and Thumbnail Issues problem type in Agile PLM Framework or Agile Product Collaboration, the Guided Resolution will be triggered and you will see screens similar to the screens below:

You respond to the prompts to come to one or more solutions or to a Data Collection.

You can see all of the selections and the solution. You may also change the edit button to change your selection on any level.

Some options lead to Data Collection

You may give feedback on the Guided Resolution using the Give Feedback button

In addition, several problem types automatically ask for specific files to assist in resolving your service request specific to that problem type.  The system will provide you with a clear action plan shortly after the SR is submitted requesting files e.g screenshots, log files and diagnostic outputs. 

Automation will continue to ask you to provide any missing files, until all the needed files have been provided. At that point, your assigned engineer will be in a position to begin reviewing your issue and analyzing your uploaded files, with the intention to get you your solution faster.
