Oracle Talent Acquisition (TEE) 15B End of Life is effective September 30, 2018. All customers must upgrade to release 17 prior to this date when 15B will be decommissioned.


If you have not already done so, request your upgrade to release 17 as soon as possible by creating a Service Request via My Oracle Support. If your upgrade is not scheduled prior, your staging and production upgrades will be scheduled in July through September 2018. This is to ensure that your upgrade is complete prior to the 15B End of Life date for service continuity.



Many exciting features and critical functional and security fixes have been incorporated in the latest release.


  • Release readiness information such as the What's New, tutorials and other resources are available on Cloud Release Readiness.
  • Release documentation is available on Oracle Help Center.
  • Bug fix, technical configuration, and data dictionaries are available in My Oracle Support document 1496352.1.
  • Upgrade policies and release lifecycle status can be found in My Oracle Support document 1603034.1.

When you conduct testing on release 17 it is advisable to retest any open defects that you reported on 15B and prior. In many cases you will find that the defect has been resolved. If the issue is still reproducible, update the Service Request to inform Customer Support that the behavior still occurs in the current release, otherwise it is likely that the defect will be closed without being fixed.
