Let me know if you need any further info.
Thanks for the update vishnu
We are using only finance modules.Is there any pre upgrade tasks to perform apart from applying pre-install patches?
It looks like no big functional changes for R12.1.3 to R12.2. upgrade
Not specifically from the DBA perspective for sure. But ensure that the functional team tests all critical business transactions and also any 3rd party integrations such as GLWAND etc. if present. Ensure custom applications are created post upgrade if they have financials related forms, reports etc.
Thanks for the update.
You are right,they have some custom reports.can we apply the online patching readiness patch in existing R12.1.3 to test what all objects have any code violations,instead of applying it on R12.2
Upgrade guide directs that we can apply and run reports on existing R12.1.3 environment.But not sure if my understanding is wrong
I mean can we run these reports as a preupgrade step
From upgrade guide
Important: As part of planning and preparation, the Oracle E-Business Suite Online Patching Readiness and GSCC Report patch corresponding to your existing Oracle E-Business suite instance must be applied using adpatch. For example, if you are at the Oracle E-Business suite Release 12.1.3 level, then you must apply the patch marked for Release 12.1.
Please let us know if i am not clear
I will try to make it clear.
In process of upgrading from R12.1.3 to R12.2,can we apply the below patch and run the readiness reports in existing R12.1.3 instance as a pre upgrade step and correct all customizations as a pre upgrade step?
