An interesting article on My Oracle Support, "Updates Lost to Fast-Refresh Materialized Views with Joins After Upgrade to 12c" from document ID 2186836.1, tells us that an upgrade from 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11 can negatively impact your fast-refresh materialized views with joins! It seems that the system "covers up" the problem by having the last update date updated while the data does not get updated!!

No I am not talking about Elvis, J. R. R. Tolkien, or even Peter Jackson! It has been a few months since I last posted, but I am back and ready to reclaim my throne of being a leading expert on the Oracle e-Business Suite application!! In the last 6 months I have been thinking quite a bit about the future of the blog, and how best to deliver content, but I have not made any changes or decisions right now beyond the fact that I do not think I can do another 365 days straight of posting. I am going to target 3-5 posts per week, and if I meet the target, or miss it, I am not going to let it discourage me going forward into the next week!

On R12.1.1 "Canceled PO Lines Are Getting Validated During PO Approval" in Purchasing per My Oracle Support note ID 2169842.1 when at least one line is cancelled from a PO that has already been approved! The good news is that there is a patch, and that you can design a testing scenario to validate that this issue does not come back in the future!

As you may remember when we celebrated the blog's fourth anniversary, I reached 100,000 views and am approaching 1,000 posts, which is why last month I was SO surprised to get over 10,000 hits with 85% of those coming from Russia alone! I wonder if other people are experiencing this type of traffic increase as well, and I also wonder if that type of pattern will be maintained going forward!

Read up on MOS article 376700.1 to learn how to start working on "Enabling TLS in Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1" for your environment today so you can get away from SSL as many third party vendors are going away from SSL due to all of the issues like POODLE.

In past years I have been rejected by the Oracle OpenWorld, and last year I was positive I would get selected, but this year I was even MORE positive I would get selected yet it was not to be! Maybe next year, since I just gave my AppsTech presentation, which was really well received and pushed me a bit so if I add some more polish it I could get accepted for OOW17!!

Did you know that Asset books that are not secured show up in the application? That is exactly what My Oracle Support document "All Asset Books Appear in the List Of Values in FA After Doing Security By Book Setup for Some Asset Books" via note ID 1582935.1 teaches us as the key here is not all books have been secured, and the unsecured books will show up in the LOV while in the other books!

Look no further than My Oracle Support note "How To Reverse An Amortized Adjustment?" via document ID 1251976.1 for the short steps on how to do this for 18.104.22.168 and after (which I will assume applies for R12 as well)!
