Oracle Hyperion Financial Data Quality Management, Enterprise Edition PSU Patch 25312033


About the Patch:

  • Available from the My Oracle Support > Patches & Updates section.
  • You can apply this patch to Release and later.
New Features in this Release:
  • Import and Export of Mapping Scripts in Text Mapping Files
    • FDMEE now supports the export and import of mapping scripts in a text file. This support includes both Jython and SQL scripts. The scripts are enclosed in a <!SCRIPT> tag.
  • Registering Duplicate Target Application Names
    • FDMEE now enables you to register target applications with the same name. This may be the case where a customer has multiple service environments and the application name is the same in each environment, or the application names are identical in development and production environments. This feature enables you to add a prefix to the application name when registering the application so that it can be registered successfully in FDMEE and be identified correctly in the list of target applications.
    • Target applications with prefixes are not backward compatible, and cannot be migrated to an or earlier release. Only a target application without a prefix name can be migrated to an earlier release.
  • Support Member Names with a Comma When Exporting to Planning
    • When export to Planning, you can now export a dimension member name that contains a comma (,).  A new Member name may contain comma setting has been added to Target options, which enables the feature.
  • Support for REST APIs
    • REST API can be used now in FDMEE to execute various jobs that run data load rules, batches, scripts, reports, and the import and export of mapping rules.
