I have a colleague that has become quite the OBIEE expert over the last few months. She loves OBIEE sometimes more than others, especially given the amount of patches that have come out.
A couple of months ago I upgraded her OBIEE implementation at a client to 126.96.36.199.7, but I noticed today that a new round of OBIEE patches were available. So, how do you find out what patches are available? Log into Oracle Support (https://support.oracle.com) and search the Knowledge Base for article 1488475.1. This article lists the patches available for various releases of OBIEE 11g.
OBIEE 188.8.131.52.8 consists of the following:
- Patch 16094198
- Patch 16094192
- Patch 16080520
- Patch 16094205
- Patch 16094211
- Patch 16067995
