Oracle EBS installation and upgrade

The Oracle EBS connector is managed through the Delphix Continuous Data Engine’s connector framework. Connectors are distributed separately from the engine. The connector must be installed before Oracle EBS Environments can be added, and before attempting any Oracle EBS virtualization operations.

Downloading the connector 

Perform the following steps to download the Oracle EBS connector to your Desktop system.

  1. Log in to the Delphix Download Portal using your credentials from the Delphix Support Portal.

  2. Find the Oracle EBS plugin folder by navigating to the Delphix Product Releases >Continuous Data Connectors > Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) > EBS 12.2 path and select the desired version’s folder.

  3. Download the .zip plugin file by clicking EBS_Plugin_<version>

  4. After the download is complete, extract the contents of the downloaded .zip file to obtain the JSON files. You must find two files named as ebs122app-<version>.json and ebs122db-<version>.json

Installing the connector

Perform the following steps to upload and install a new connector.

  1. Log in to the Delphix Management application.

  2. Navigate to the Manage > Plugins page.

  3. To upload a plugin, click the oracle_ebs2.png icon. This action displays a "Upload or Upgrade a Plugin" dialog window.  

  4. Browse to the JSON  files on your desktop which you downloaded and extracted in the previous step

  5. Upload the downloaded JSON (for example, ebs122db-<version>.json) files one by one. Once the first upload is successful, close the dialog box and then start a new upload for the second file.


    For more information, refer to the Delphix Continuous Data Engine connector management section.

Upgrading the connector

Users must upgrade their connectors to use new features and apply bug fixes. 

Connectors are not upgraded through engine upgrades. However, some connector upgrades are only compatible with a minimum Delphix Continuous Data Engine version. Please ensure your engine is upgraded to a compatible version before upgrading the connector. For full compatibility details, refer to the Oracle EBS support matrix

Perform the following process to upgrade your Oracle EBS connector to a later version.

Warning! Since v4.0.2, connector upgrades have been streamlined. However, skipping a version upgrade step before upgrading to v4.0.2 may lead to configuration issues. If upgrading from a pre-v4.0.2, follow the Upgrade matrix instructions closely.

Upgrade process 

Perform the following steps when upgrading your Oracle EBS connector.

  1. Disable all Oracle EBS dSources and VDBs.(Only required for upgrades of EBS connector version lower than v4.0.2 )

Note: Consult the Upgrade matrix instructions for more details.

  1. Upload the newer connector version into the Delphix Continuous Data Engine. For more information, refer to the Installing the Oracle EBS connector documentation.

  2. Refresh all the associated Oracle EBS environments to trigger the discovery workflow. Verify that the workflow is completed.

  3. Enable dSources and VDBs, if disabled, and create new dSource and VDB snapshots.

  4. Review the newly created snapshot’s metadata for the new plugin version to confirm the upgrade was successful.

Upgrade matrix

This section lists Oracle EBS connector versions that a user can upgrade from and to.

Warning! You must adhere to the following upgrade considerations. Ignoring the below upgrade matrix may result in incompatible Oracle EBS data sources.

  • It is mandatory to upgrade to the v4.0.2 version of the Oracle EBS connector and then upgrade to only  v4.1.0. of the Oracle EBS connector.

  • After upgrading to v4.1.0, you may upgrade directly to any higher version.

Follow the matrix below to avoid connector corruption:
