    Certification for Discoverer 11.1.1.6 and Oracle DB 12.1

    1868169

      Hi

       

      Is Discoverer 11.1.1.6 Certified to run with/against Oracle 12.1 Databases?

       

      The Certification Matrix only lists 11.1.1.7 as a certified version with 12.1 Databases. There is no DB  version listed for Oracle Discoverer 11.1.1.6

       

      Regards

          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 11.1.1.1+.  The plus sign means any version higher in that digit, meaning Fusion Middleware (FMw) 11.1.1.2.0, 11.1.1.3.0, 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 11.1.1.7.0 to use a 12.1.0.1+ database.  This column also shows the 12.2 DB requires FMw 11.1.1.9.0.  Discoverer is not a part of that release.

           

          To directly address your question, No version 11.1.1.6.0 is not certified for any 12c database.  Version 11.1.1.6.0 is certified for Database versions:

            *Oracle 10.2.0.4+

            *Oracle 11.1.0.7+

            *Oracle 11.2.0.1+

          Please review the matrix footnotes for added information / restrictions.

           

          Best Regards,
          Sharon

           

          --- Important Information

          Premier support for Discoverer 11g ended June 2014.  Version 11.1.1.7.0 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.
