Path Used for FND: Personalization Document Root Path R12.2

  • 1.  Path Used for FND: Personalization Document Root Path R12.2

    Posted 04-29-2020 10:59
    ​We have our System Profile - FND: Personalization Document Root Path set to the recommended Path per Oracle Application Framework Profile Options, Release 12.2.9 (Doc ID 2567030.1) Which says - We recommend you set this profile to the $APPL_TOP staging area ($APPL_TOP/<CompanyIdentifier>/<CustomProductShortName>/<product-version>.

    We have this set to our registered  Custom Top /u01/oracle/DB1/fs1/EBSapps/appl/xxcust/12.0.0/mds. After each patching cycle we need to update the System Profile - FND: Personalization Document Root Path to the new run file system.

    We are curious what other customers have the path set to in EBS R12.2 so they don't need to update the path to fs1 or fs2 after each patching cycle.

    Thanks
    Jeff

    We have set ours to a non-editioned file system.  In our case $APPLTMP, which is set to the same file system where we write our concurrent logs and output.  It would also work to put it somewhere in $APPS_NE.

    Thanks Tom! I appreciate your feedback. We are in the beginning phases of our 12.2 upgrade project and were trying to stay with the Oracle recommended path but after a few patching cycles, manually changing this system profile every time is not a good option.  We will make that change as you suggested. Thanks again, Jeff

    I don't have 12.2.X to check, but if there is an autoconfig setting for this and there is a  template for this feature, you can copy the template to the $FND_TOP/admin/template/custom or $AD_TOP/admin/template and make the change there, ensure you run autoconfig and patching should leave it alone.  The caveat is if there is a template that you can customize.  I don't have 12.2.X to verify but you can check

    I reached out to Oracle and below is the response from Maher Muhanna...

    "You bring a valid point. The recommendation that we have in our documentation are from the 11i days and not taking Online Patching into consideration. We will file a doc bug on your behalf and replay back to you with the reference. In the mean time, your recommendation to set the profile option to a non editioned path is a correct and supported approach that customer can follow."

    One option would be to create a custom autoconfig driver and template/script that would correctly update the profile option with the appropriate path (fs1/fs2) whenever AutoConfig is executed.

    Thanks Susan for filing a bug with Oracle!  I really appreciate it. James also provided a great suggestion via a custom autoconfig driver entry​.
