EPM 11.1.2.4: Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome browsers support patching : Part-2

You may like to read Part-1 first to understand the background of Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome browsers support patching in Hyperion/EPM 11.1.2.4 setup. 

In this post, I will tell how it worked for us. We have recently applied these browsers (Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome) compatibility patches in our EPM/Hyperion 11.1.2.4 environment. 

As discussed in last post, below is what we need to apply in order to make your EPM/Hyperion 11.1.2.4 environment working on Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome browsers:

EPM 11.1.2.4: Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome browsers support patching
Important Notes:
  • Above list provides the minimum patch version for each Hyperion application you need to install, If you want, you can go for higher version too. 
  • I assume your EPM/Hyperion 11.1.2.4 environment is up-to-date in terms of patches and you have all the prerequisite patches already applied.
  • Its recommended to have EPM/Hyperion application schemas backup and if possible, backup of the existing installation/configuration directory to handle unforeseen critical issues.
  • You should apply these patches in below given order. 
  • I have all these Hyperion applications installed and configured on Windows server 2012 R2, therefore below given steps are applicable for Windows machines. For other operating systems, you can refer 'README' document of the respective patch number.
  • Stop all the Hyperion services and WebLogic Admin server of your environment before proceeding further.
Lets start the patching now. 

Hyperion Workspace 11.1.2.4.825 (Patch 31124100)

Download the patch and place it under apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1\OPatch directory.

Open command prompt and apply the patch using below commands:

cd E:\apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1\OPatch 
opatch.bat apply E:\apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1\OPatch\28557058 -oh E:\apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1 -jdk E:\apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\jdk160_35

On the server where Oracle Hyperion Calculation Manager is installed, delete the cached files in the following directories:

<Middleware_Home>/user_projects/domains/<DOMAIN_NAME>/servers/<CalcMgr0>/tmp 
<Middleware_Home>/user_projects/domains/<DOMAIN_NAME>/servers/<CalcMgr0>/cache

Hyperion Financial Reporting 11.1.2.4.712  (Patch 30670918)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This patch needs to be applied on all your Financial Reporting servers, Web servers and also on HFM application server (if you use HFR for reporting) of the Hyperion environment. 

To apply this patch first Uninstall the Financial Reporting Studio by going to Control Panel, Add or Remove Programs, and then uninstall Financial Reporting Studio. 

On the Financial Reporting server machines, download the patch and place it under apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1\OPatch directory.

Open command prompt and apply the patch using below commands:

cd E:\apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1\OPatch

opatch.bat apply E:\apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1\OPatch\30670918 -oh E:\apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1 -jdk E:\apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\jdk160_35

Delete the Financial Reporting precompiled jsp files located at:
<ORACLE_HOME>\Middleware\user_projects\domains\EPMSystem\precompiled\hr

Use the EPM System configurator to redeploy the Financial Reporting Web Application.  If RA Framework, OHS, or IIS are installed on a separate host, it must be patched also.

In order to run the new Oracle Hyperion Financial Reporting Web Studio, you must enable proxying. I am sure it would have already been enabled in your environment too. If not, kindly refer 'README' document of the patch.

At the end, when you start your EPM services, remember to connect to the EPM Workspace machine on patched Financial Reporting server machine. Download the Financial Reporting Studio installer from the EPM Workspace menu: From the Tools menu, select Install and then select Financial Reporting Studio and then launch the installer. Follow the installation guide to install the Financial Reporting Studio to the location you want.

Hyperion Financial Management PSU 11.1.2.4.209 (Patch 29343616)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This patch needs to be applied on all your Hyperion Financial Management application servers, HFM Web servers and also on HFR application server (if you use HFR for reporting) of the Hyperion environment.  

Download the patch and place it under apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1\OPatch directory.

Open command prompt and apply the patch using below commands:

cd E:\apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1\OPatch

opatch.bat apply E:\apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1\OPatch\29343616 -oh E:\apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1 -jdk E:\apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\jdk160_35

If you are applying this patch to version 11.1.2.4.208 or an earlier version, also execute the following sql command to upgrade the HFM schema against the Financial Management database. Use appropriate sql as per your database type.

<EPM_ORACLE_HOME>\products\FinancialManagement\Server\conf\<DB Type>_from_11.1.2.4.208_to_11.1.2.4.209_SchemaUpgrade.sql

E:\apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1\products\FinancialManagement\Server\conf\Oracle_from_11.1.2.4.208_to_11.1.2.4.209_SchemaUpgrade.sql

In addition, you must run below by login to HFM schema:

<EPM_ORACLE_HOME>\products\FinancialManagement\Server\conf\Oracle_Create_ImportApp.sql

<EPM_ORACLE_HOME>\products\FinancialManagement\Server\conf\Oracle_Create_InsightDetails.sql

This step is required for 'Importing Application' feature. 

If you are using the extract data to database functionality with Oracle database as the target database, you will need to reconfigure DSN. To reconfigure:
  1. Select Navigate, then Administer, and then Consolidation Administration.
  2. From Admin Tasks, click Configure DSN. 
  3. Select any data source that has Oracle database as database type, and then click on Edit.
  4. Enter the database connection information, including the database server network address as Host.
  5. Click Test Connection. If successful, click on Save.

Hyperion Financial Close Management and Hyperion Tax Governance 11.1.2.4.253+ (Patch 29060830)
Hyperion Tax Provision 11.1.2.4.202+ (Patch 25316913)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
We don't use these two components in our EPM setup. You can follow README document to apply these patches, if there components are there in your EPM/Hyperion environment.

Hyperion Data Relationship Management 11.1.2.4.350  (Patch 31420887)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This patch needs to be applied on all your DRM application server and DRM Web services servers of the Hyperion environment.  

Make sure you have stopped the DRM services. 

Take a backup of DRM schema (Must!) before applying the DRM patch.

Save a backup copy of the drm-config.xml file found under directory
E:\apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1\products\DataRelationshipManagement\server\config

Uninstall the existing 11.1.2.4 release:
a.    Stop the Data Relationship Management service.
b.    Verify all processes are shut down.
c.    Run the installer from that release and choose the Remove option.

Run the new setup.exe to install this patch release.

If a multiple-machine configuration is being used, repeat the uninstall and install steps above for each machine.

When using an Oracle repository and upgrading from a Data Relationship Management release prior to 11.1.2.4.330, run the following statement for the current schema owner for each application to be updated: GRANT CREATE TYPE, CREATE SEQUENCE TO <user>;

In the Configuration Console on the application controller machine, select Application, then 'Apply Updates' for all existing applications.

Make sure to save any configuration changes made in the Data Relationship Management Console. Click on save configuration to do so. 

Redeploy the Data Relationship Management Web service application (oracle-epm-drm-webservices.ear) to Oracle Weblogic. The oracle-epm-drm-webservices.ear file is located in the %EPM_ORACLE_HOME%\products\DataRelationshipManagement\api directory. This step is only required if applying this patch to an installation where the Web service application has been previously deployed. See the “Redeploying a Web Services Application” section in the Oracle® Fusion Middleware Security and Administrator's Guide for Web Services for instructions to redeploy using Oracle Enterprise Manager. 

FDMEE (Hyperion Financial Data Management) Patch Set Update 11.1.2.4.220 (Patch 25312033)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This patch needs to be applied on all your Hyperion Financial Data Management application servers (FDMEE) of the Hyperion environment.  

Download the patch and place it under apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1\OPatch directory.

Open command prompt and apply the patch using below commands:

cd E:\apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1\OPatch

opatch.bat apply E:\apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1\OPatch\25312033 -oh E:\apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1 -jre E:\apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\jdk160_35

Additional Installation Instructions:

1.    Copy the following script files.
For Windows, copy from:
EPM_ORACLE_HOME/FinancialDataQuality/bin/executescript.bat.template 
to:
EPM_INSTANCE_HOME/FinancialDataQuality/executescript.bat

2.    If your deployment is a distributed environment where Hyperion Financial Management and Planning are on different servers than FDMEE, copy the following jar files:

Copy files from the Hyperion Financial Management server folder EPM_ORACLE_HOME\common\hfm\11.1.2.0\lib to the same directory on the FDMEE server.
Copy files from the Planning server on the EPM_ORACLE_HOME\common\planning\11.1.2.0\lib to same directory on the FDMEE server.

3. Now, on the servers where FDMEE is installed, you must delete tmp and cache files in the following directories:

<MIDDLEWARE_HOME>/user_projects/domains/<DOMAIN_NAME>/servers/<MANAGED_SERVER_NAME/tmp/

<MIDDLEWARE_HOME>/user_projects/domains/<DOMAIN_NAME>/servers/<MANAGED_SERVER_NAME/cache

Hyperion Profitability and Cost Management (HPCM) 11.1.2.4.131 (Patch 31159372)
-----------------------------------------------------
This patch needs to be applied on all your Hyperion Profitability and Cost Management (HPCM) of the Hyperion environment. 

Perform a full system backup, including EPM Architect and the Profitability and Cost Management databases. If you have Management Ledger applications, you should back them up using Life Cycle Management (LCM) in Shared Services. 

This patch must automatically re-register your Profitability and Cost Management applications, which will delete native non-Admin user provisioning.  Use Life cycle Management (LCM) in the Shared Services console to export the Native Directory under Foundation, usually located at Foundation => Shared Services => Native Directory, so you can restore it later.  
 1)  From the Shared Services console, open the Application Groups folder.
 2)  Open the Foundation sub-folder and select Shared Services.  
 3)  Export the Native Directory artifact and all content under it.  

You will need the resulting LCM export file later to restore the user provisioning.

Download the patch and place it under apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1\OPatch directory.

Open command prompt and apply the patch using below commands:

cd E:\apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1\OPatch

opatch.bat apply E:\apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1\OPatch\31159372 -oh E:\apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1 -jdk E:\apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\jdk160_35

Clear the WebLogic cache under
E:\apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\user_projects\domains\EPMSystem\servers\Profitability0

When you will start the Profitability service (Hyperion Profitability - Java Web Application) it automatically performs any required database updates after applying a new patch - there is no need to run a manual SQL script.

Invoke Profitability and Cost Management, open an application, and check in the System Information tab under Model Summary to verify that the Schema Version is 11124.153. If instead you get a Schema Version Mismatch error, report this to Oracle Support.  You can also search the hpcm.log file for SQL errors following the first recent occurrence of the string '11124.153'. If you find an error that you can resolve, the database upgrade can be performed manually after resolving the error, to complete the installation (see the Performing Manual Database Updates section below).

From the Shared Services console, import the LCM file you created earlier, to restore the native user provisioning.

Note also that any changes made previously to the hpm_ws_client.properties file to customize either of the web services sample programs will be overwritten by the patch and must be reapplied.

Optional – Performing Manual Database Updates (only when there are errors in the automatic update):
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If errors occurred during the automatic database updates performed during service startup, and you have identified and corrected the problem, you can follow these instructions to complete the required database updates manually.

1.    Shut down the Profitability service (Hyperion Profitability – Web Application).

Run the appropriate database update patch script for your database type.  Run the script from the Profitability and Cost Management product database/schema/user.  Capture the SQL script log output and save it.  If there are any errors, report them to Oracle Support.

Database Type: MS SQL Server 
Database Patch Files: Run the following database update script using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio against the Profitability and Cost Management product database: <EPM_ORACLE_HOME>\products\Profitability\database\Common\MSSQLServer\create_11.1.2.4.131.sql

Database Type: Oracle
Database Patch Files: Run the following database update script in the Profitability and Cost Management product schema/user using Oracle SQL Developer:<EPM_ORACLE_HOME>\products\Profitability\database\Common\Oracle\create_11.1.2.4.131.sql

2.    Start the Profitability service (Hyperion Profitability - Java Web Application).

3.    Invoke Profitability and Cost Management, open an application, and check in the System Information tab under Model Summary to verify that the Schema Version is 11124.142.  

4.    For each Detailed application, you must re-deploy the Reporting Tables and Views.

5.    Complete any remaining steps you have not performed in the Applying this Patch section above.

Once all the patching steps are completed, do the following:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.    Stop all EPM services.

2.    For each of the following folders, create a backup copy of the folder, then delete all the contained files within the original folders:

apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\user_projects\domains\EPMSystem\servers\FoundationServices$\cache

apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\user_projects\domains\EPMSystem\servers\FoundationServices$\tmp

apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\user_projects\domains\EPMSystem\servers\RaFramework$\cache

apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\user_projects\domains\EPMSystem\servers\RaFramework$\tmp

apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\user_projects\domains\EPMSystem\precompiled\raframework

apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\user_projects\domains\EPMSystem\precompiled\workspace

[NOTE: The value of the above strings will actually be a digit in your environment (e.g., FoundationServices0). Depending on the deployment, the number could be 0, 1, 2, etc.]

3.    You need to clear browser's cache and temporary files on all the client/users machines.

4.    Start all EPM services and WebLogic Admin server of your EPM environment.

5.    Validate the Hyperion applications on Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome 80+ browsers.

Post patching, all EPM applications like Workspace, Essbase, HFM, HPCM, DRM, FDMEE are working fine in our environments (DEV/TEST/PROD). We haven't faced any showstopper issue/error in these applications as such. 

There is one issue observed in EPMA that you can read about in below article:



That's all for this post. 

I hope this article has helped you. 
Your suggestions/feedback are most welcome.

Keep learning and Have a great day!!!

EPM 11.1.2.4: Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome browsers support patching : Part-1

Note: This is Part-1 of 'Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge Browser Support' patching blogs . You can read Part-2 here.

In April 2020, one of our clients (on EPM 11.1.2.4) informed us that effective immediately, their IT team would begin supporting Microsoft’s new Edge* web browser making it the default browser on user machines. Users were recommended to use Edge for day-to-day browser activities. However, they did mention that there are several apps that are not yet compatible. So if you use one of those apps that have known compatibility issues, then you can continue using Internet Explorer (IE11) in these cases.

*Microsoft Edge is based on the Chromium open-source engine, just like Chrome. Compared to IE, with Edge, you can look forward to significantly faster browsing performance and compatibility, better overall security, and a slew of helpful new features.

We checked the EPM 11.1.2.4 certification matrix and informed the client that currently (as of May 2020), Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge Browsers are not supported by all the EPM applications so we should use IE11 only to smoothly access all the Hyperion apps.

But this whole picture got changed when in June 2020, Oracle notified that Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge Browser Support has been added to Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) 11.1.2.4 (click here to read).

Oracle updated the EPM 11.1.2.4 certification matrix to reflect the new changes, as shown below:

EPM 11.2.2 and 11.1.2.4: Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge Browser Support

In order to make your EPM 11.1.2.4 environment compatible with Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge Browsers, you must update to the following supported releases:
  • Hyperion Shared Services 11.1.2.4.100+ (Patch 31319089. Use Patch 31574562 for release 11.1.2.4.9xx) 
  • Hyperion Planning, Hyperion Capital Asset Planning, Hyperion Workforce Planning, Hyperion Project Financial Planning 11.1.2.4.009+ (Patch 29889455) 
  • Hyperion Calculation Manager 11.1.2.4.014+ (Patch 28557058) 
  • Hyperion Financial Reporting 11.1.2.4.712+ (Patch 30670918. Use Patch 30671119 for release 11.1.2.4.9xx) 
  • Hyperion Financial Management 11.1.2.4.208+ (Patch 28511735) 
  • Hyperion Financial Close Management and Hyperion Tax Governance 11.1.2.4.253+ (Patch 29060830) 
  • Hyperion Tax Provision 11.1.2.4.202+ (Patch 25316913) 
  • Hyperion Financial Data Management 11.1.2.4.220+ (Patch 25312033) 
  • Hyperion Profitability and Cost Management 11.1.2.4.130+ (Patch 29461894) 
  • Hyperion Workspace 11.1.2.4.825+ (Patch 31124100. Use Patch 31486872 for release 11.1.2.4.9xx) 
  • Hyperion Data Relationship Management 11.1.2.4.350+ (Patch 31420887)
  • Additionally, you must also update Oracle JDeveloper / Application Development Framework 11.1.1.7.1 (Patch 31246831).

EXCEPTIONS

  • Oracle JDeveloper / Application Development Framework does not apply to Hyperion Data Relationship Management or Hyperion Workspace.

For more information, read the following knowledge article: Browser Support Added for Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge with EPM System Releases Beginning with Release 11.1.2.4 - Doc ID 2675883.1

So we planned to apply these compatibility patches in our EPM 11.1.2.4 environment starting with DEV to make it work with Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge browsers.

As an obvious next step, we started looking for known issues/errors faced by any users after applying these compatibility patches.

Then we came to know about one technical issue reported as Hyperion Shared Services not working in Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge (Doc ID 2698535.1).

Notably, as per the Doc ID 2698535.1, this issue is reported not only in EPM 11.1.2.4 but also in the very latest EPM 11.2.1 and EPM 11.2.2 releases (Let me know in the comment section if you have a functional EPM 11.2.1 or 11.2.2 environment and face this issue on Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome browser.) 

As per Doc ID 2698535.1, after applying these compatibility patches mentioned in Doc ID 2675883.1, from Shared Services Console, attempting the following tasks results in an "empty" grey screen or grey pop-up:

  • create new Native User
  • provision existing user
  • LCM import/export
  • Migration Status Report

In short, you will be having issues while using Hyperion Shared Services Console on Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge browsers post applying these patches.

Oracle has already raised two bugs for this problem as mentioned in Doc ID 2698535.1:

  1. Unpublished bug created for 11.1.2.4 Bug 31686588
  2. Unpublished bug created for 11.2.1 Bug 31546643
As a workaround for this issue in Hyperion Shared Services console, the following is suggested in Doc ID 2698535.1:

  • For 11.1.2.4, workaround is to use Internet Explorer 11.x or Firefox 31+ ESR
  • For 11.2.1, workaround is to use Internet Explorer 11.x or Firefox ESR
  • For 11.2.2, workaround is to use Firefox ESR 

We decided to first clear the air about this compatibility patches and reported bugs before we patch our systems.

To that effect, we recently had a call with Oracle, and below is what we can summarize based on our discussion:

As far as these two bugs are concerned, there is still no solution provided for EPM 11.1.2.4, EPM 11.2.1, or EPM 11.2.2. Most probably, these bugs will be fixed in the EPM 11.2.3 release (as of Oct 2020). 

For EPM 11.1.2.4, you should go-ahead and patch your EPM 11.1.2.4 environment with these compatibility patches. As post patching there will be no impact on EPM 11.2.4 functioning with IE11 browser i.e. all the features/functionalities will continue to work fine on IE11 browser regardless of whether you have applied the new compatibility patches or not to make your EPM 11.2.4 environment compatible with Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.

Post compatibility patching, the reported issue of "empty" grey screen in Doc ID 2698535.1 is limited to Hyperion Shared Services Console only for the tasks like create new Native User, provision existing user, LCM import/export, Migration Status Report. Other functionalities/features/consoles in EPM 11.1.2.4 work fine on Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge browsers. 

For the end-users, there are hardly any issues because Hyperion Shared services Console is mostly used by Hyperion Admins for user management and LCM related tasks.


The above summary gives a sense of security that at least there is nothing to lose after applying these compatibility patches mentioned in Doc ID 2675883.1 in your EPM 11.1.2.4 environment. After applying these patches in your EPM 11.1.2.4 environment, you can use:

  • Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge browser for all the activities except on Hyperion Shared Services console
  • IE11 for Hyperion Shared Services console activities only (mostly by Hyperion Admins)

As for the client, upgrading the current EPM version 11.1.2.4 to EPM 11.2 is still a good 6 months away (as of Oct 2020) and their IT team has already made Microsoft Edge the default browser, we are going to apply these compatibility patches in our 11.1.2.4 DEV environment for Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome compatibility. 

That's all for this post. 

I hope this article has helped you. 
Your suggestions/feedback are most welcome.
