Certification for Discoverer and Oracle DB 12.1

Is Discoverer Certified to run with/against Oracle 12.1 Databases?

The Certification Matrix only lists as a certified version with 12.1 Databases. There is no DB  version listed for Oracle Discoverer

    Hello Paul,

    The trick to reading the Certification matrix is the Version Supported column will identify the "lowest" version of the product and for Discoverer the Install Type of must be "ALL". 

    For example, take a look at the certification matrix, the "FMW on WLS - DB" tab.  The third row has Install type of ALL, naming the version as  The plus sign means any version higher in that digit, meaning Fusion Middleware (FMw),, etc..  It is important to always read the "Exceptions and Additional Information" column as well as the foot note for the * in DB version column. 

    You will see for this row it clearly states you must be at WebLogic Server (WLS) 10.3.6 and FMw to use a database.  This column also shows the 12.2 DB requires FMw  Discoverer is not a part of that release.

    To directly address your question, No version is not certified for any 12c database.  Version is certified for Database versions:




    Please review the matrix footnotes for added information / restrictions.

    --- Important Information

    Premier support for Discoverer 11g ended June 2014.  Version is the final / terminal release of the Discoverer product.  Discoverer is under sustaining support, which limits our ability to assist you.  Please review the alert section at the bottom of this update.

    Discoverer is at end of life.  Any software update (OS, browser, Java, WLS, EBS, etc.) released after June 2014 has not specifically been certified or tested and may cause issues for Discoverer.  Therefore, it is important to maintain a stable Discoverer environment for as long as it takes to move to OBIEE or other replacement.
