          Is this applicable to EBS users & clients?

          Of course. This is applicable to all Oracle products.

          Check out this document:

           

          Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 Critical Patch Update Knowledge Document (July 2016) (Doc ID 2146140.1)

           

          Regards,

            Thanks bashar,

             

            But I am afraid to apply it to our customer's production instance because they do not want down time and besides they are not aware about the patch, why interrupt their business?

            What if upon applying the patch their instance bugged down? So I will be the cause of blame, telling that their instance is working fine before, why need to touch it?

             

             

            Kind regards,

              Try to raise their security awareness and explain to them how these patches will enhance the security.

              You should never apply patches directly on production.

              Since you are working in this field for long time, you know that patches should be applied on a clone of production and tested thoroughly before being applied on production.

              If the customer does not care about security then you should document that you attempted to follow the best practices but they did not want to proceed with it.

               

              Regards,

              Bashar

                These are mostly security patches which are more important. you have to make client aware about it

                regards

                  Remember that CPU patches are released for all the products which is including DB, Apps, Exadata, BI, MW or any other product.

                   

                  You need to follow the right document based on the products you have.

                   

                  For EBS, they will specify the related EBS Patches (adop or adpatch), MW (FMW or iAS or tools) etc, DB etc.

                   

                  Check what is applicable based on your versions or environment.

                   

                  Check all CPU Documents at one place (Includes EBS as well):

                   

                  Oracle Critical Patch Update - July 2016

                   

                  or only EBS

                    Sometimes even if I  test on DEV it gets error on PROD.
