My Oracle Support Patch and Update screen has been enhanced with a new tool called Patch Conflict Checker.

 

The Patch Conflict Checker Tool enables you to upload an OPatch inventory and checks whether the selected patches conflict with those already applied to your environment.

  • If the tool finds "no conflicts", you can safely download the selected patches.
  • If conflicts are detected by the tool, the tool will then locate existing resolutions for you to download.
  • If no resolution is found, the tool offers you to request a new resolution and you can monitor the availability of the new patch conflict resolution in the Plans and Patch Request region.

 

 

The Patch Conflict Checker Tool is available from the Search Results screen

 

 

as well as via the Patch Detail screen, which automatically opens when you click on a patch number from within a knowledge document or when you click on the patch name from the patch search results view.
