Patch Set Update .700 - IE11 Support Comes To EPM

Oracle seems to be in the process of releasing patches belonging to Patch Set Update There is a handy list of all .700 patches in the readme file for the Financial Reporting patch that is already downloadable. Note that all of the packages mentioned in the list are not yet available as I'm writing this post and I'm also not sure whether or not PSUs will also be issued for Essbase.

Update on July 2nd: Added the patches for Shared Services and Workspace that were missing from the original list

Product Name PSU Patch Number
Oracle Data Relationship Management
Oracle Financial Reporting
Oracle Hyperion Calculation Manager
Oracle Hyperion Disclosure Management
Oracle Hyperion Financial Close Management
Oracle Hyperion Financial Data Quality Management Enterprise Edition
Oracle Hyperion Financial Management
Oracle Hyperion Performance Management Architect
Oracle Hyperion Planning
Oracle Hyperion Profitability and Cost Management
Oracle Hyperion Reporting and Analysis Framework
Oracle Hyperion Tax Provision
Oracle Hyperion Web Analysis
Oracle Hyperion Shared Services
Oracle EPM Workspace

The most important update in this PSU is native support for Internet Explorer 11:
"Apply this patch to use Internet Explorer release 11 in standards mode instead of in Enterprise Mode. After you apply this patch, you can no longer use Enterprise Mode. You must apply the PSU for all EPM products in your deployment."
The EPM System Certification Matrix document will undoubtedly be updated to match this information soon. The .700 patches must be applied to all EPM products in each environment so you have to be patient and wait for all of them to become available. Have a look at the readme files for each individual patch as there are numerous fixes made to the products. Also note the prerequisites as some of the patches seem to rely on newly released ADF patches.


  1. Hi Henri, we were very excited about IE11 native support at first, but found out it does not work properly. Workspace and RAF are fine, but once you open HFM application you cannot expand any [+] or open Member Selector. We submitted a BUG with development team: BUG 21441488 - IE 11 STANDARD MODE ISSUES WITH HFM RELEASE

    1. Hi Henri and Igor, are there any news about bugs or issues regarding the patch updade

    2. One issue that I have seen happening a lot with (and as well) is that users have browser's zoom level to a level like 120%. This breaks EPM web functionality in many places... Oracle recommends all users to keep the zoom level at 100% at all times and there is no fix planned for this "feature".
