Just last week I installed OBIEE 18.104.22.168 and patched it to version 22.214.171.124.1 which was released back in July, I believe. I went to my trusty Oracle Support document (Doc ID 1488475.1), and found that someone from Oracle had gutted the article of virtually all helpful information on the various OBIEE patches available for versions 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52. Thankfully, I was able to find Doc ID 1566124.1, which states the patches that make up OBIEE 184.108.40.206.1.
The six OBIEE-specific patches are combined into one download as patch number 16556157. Also required during the patching is patch number 16569379. These patches are available on the My Oracle Support site (https://support.oracle.com) and are installed as previously covered on this blog. Be sure to read the readme file in the Patch 16453010 folder for any questions.

Oracle states the following caveats as well:
- Be aware that a small number of the bug fixes that became available in the 22.214.171.124.9 through 126.96.36.199.11 Suite Bundle Patches are not available in the 188.8.131.52.1 Suite Bundle Patch. Carefully review the list of bugs that are fixed in this Suite Bundle Patch before applying it to your system.
- Oracle Exalytics customers must not install this Oracle Business Intelligence Suite Bundle Patch unless it is certified for the specific Oracle Exalytics Patch or Patchset Update that they are applying. For more information see Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation and Administration Guide for Oracle Exalytics In-Memory Machine and the Oracle Exalytics certification information.
- For Oracle Fusion Applications customers, this Oracle Business Intelligence Suite Bundle Patch will be applied as part of a Fusion Applications installation or upgrade. Oracle Fusion Applications customers must not apply this Suite Bundle Patch independently.
- The Oracle Business Intelligence Suite Bundle Patch 184.108.40.206.1 is cumulative and might include patches that you might have already applied to the Oracle BI system. Therefore, when you install the Suite Bundle Patch, you might see warning messages that indicate that earlier patches are being rolled back. These warnings simply indicate that oPatch is working correctly, and do not require any action.
- If you have horizontally scaled out the Oracle BI system on to multiple machines, then you must apply the Oracle Business Intelligence Suite Bundle Patch 220.127.116.11.1 and the Dynamic Monitoring Service patch to all machines in the cluster.
