    EBS 12.2.7 enabling/installing (I) a Module

    Beauty_and_dBest

      EBS 12.2.7

      12c

      OL 6.8

       

       

      We are enabling/installing (I)  additional Modules in our EBS instance.

       

      Do I need to run all options below? For all  Message, Forms, Reports, Jar files?

       

       

       

      Kind regards,

      jc

          Hi ALL,

           

          Do I need to run all below as well? Compile apps schema, compile menu, compile flexfield, and reload JAR files?

           

           

           

           

          Thanks,

            Hi,

             

              Not needed. All forms, reports, objects are compiled by default.

             

              When you license new products using License Manager and you start using new products, keep in mind below things:

             

            • Its possible that there are latest product RUPs/patches. Use recommended patches and select product in MOS
            • It might be possible your Functional team might face issues so apply patches as needed.

             

            Thanks,

            Vishnu

              Vishnu,

               

              I am not sure I agree on 12.2.7.  When I fresh installed 12.2.0, all forms and binaries are delivered as compiled executables and fmx files in the product homes at that 12.2.0 version.  If I go into adadmin and relink executables or recompile form files and select an unlicensed product, adadmin does not recompile or relink anything.  If I recompile all forms, only a small amount of forms are compiled (the licensed ones).  Once I license a product or module, I can then select that module and relink executables or recompile forms in adadmin.

               

              JC,

               

              Please compile the first 3 objects (messages, forms, reports) and relink executables after licensing a product in EBS.

               

              Regards,

              Michael

                Hi,

                 

                   If a customer applies 12.2.7 on top 12.2.0, I believe the Generate portion will definitely generate all forms. However generating these is not of any harm so we can.

                 

                   I have seen several instances of registering new products for teams and products went live after several testing without compiling any new objects (DB or Forms or Reports or Messages)..

                 

                "If I recompile all forms, only a small amount of forms are compiled (the licensed ones).  Once I license a product or module, I can then select that module and relink executables or recompile forms in adadmin.'

                 

                This sounds reasonable though..

                 

                   I will do an exclusive exercise on this and update my observations.

                 

                Thanks,

                  This is what forms versions look like in 12.2.7 for an unlicensed product.  Notice the fmb is higher than the fmx.

                    Thanks Vishnu, Michael,

                     

                    We encountered forms error in our UAT instance when we enable or update License Manager to  (I) for some modules like

                    CM

                    FUN

                    GL

                    AP

                    IBY

                     

                    But we did not encounter these forms error  in our CRP instance because they are already installed during the Rapidwiz install process.

                     

                    So It is positive that we need to recompile (messages, forms, reports) and relink executables after licensing a product in EBS.

                     

                    My question is:

                     

                    Do I still need to : compile apps schema, menu info,  flexfield, and JAR files?

                      Hi,

                       

                            Though not mandatory, better you do it to ensure we avoid any related issues.

                       

                      thanks,
