    Which OPatch release should I go for ?

    Muhammad Kamal

      Hi all,

       

      I have OBIEE v12.2.1.2.0 installed on Oracle Linux 7.3 x86-64, I'm planning to apply the "Patch 25353706: ACTION LINK IS NOT WORKING WITH HIDDEN/FIXED OPTION IN COLUMN PROPERTIES" to fix "Bug 25353706 : ACTION LINK IS NOT WORKING WITH HIDDEN/FIXED OPTION IN COLUMN PROPERTIES", in sake of checking my OPatch version I found that:

       

      $ $ORACLE_HOME/OPatch/opatch version

      $ OPatch Version: 13.9.1.0.0

       

      the readme instructions for the patch say that and I quote "Oracle Fusion Middleware 12.2.1 products are installed with OPatch NextGen 13.3 to apply interim patches, ... Checking Patch 6880880, if a new version is available , download "OUI NextGen 13.3" for your platform"

       

      when I follow the link for the "Patch 6880880" I get confused:

       

      1st: no ability to select "OUI NextGen 13.3" as a release !!! os does this mean no new version of this release is available ??

      2nd: if "OUI NextGen 13.1" or "OUI NextGen 13.2" selected, it says that both for FMW 12.1.x, which is older version than mine "12.2.1.2.0" !!

      3rd: selecting "OPatch 13.9.0.0.0" as a release, it says the latest version is 13.9.1.3.0 which is a newer OPatch version than mine "13.9.1.0.0", but in full quote "OPatch version 13.9.1.3.0 (Reuploaded with fix for -silent mode) for Oracle Homes with OUI version 13.6.x and higher" !! is this even what I'm looking for ??

       

      so please give me the right direction, thanks in advance
