- Your Oracle E-Business Suite environment is located in the affected country or region OR
- Your Oracle E-Business Suite environment is located outside the affected country or region but you conduct business or have customers or suppliers in the affected country or region
In case you haven't been following our previous time zone or Daylight Saving Time (DST)-related articles, international timezone definitions for E-Business Suite environments are captured in a series of patches for the database and application tier servers in your environment. The actual scope and number of patches that need to be applied depend on whether you've applied previous DST or timezone-related patches. Some sysadmins have remarked to me that it generally takes more time to read the various timezone documents than it takes to apply these patches, but your mileage may vary.
Proactive backports of DST upgrade patches to all Oracle E-Business Suite tiers and platforms are not created and supplied by default. If you need this DST release and an appropriate patch is not currently available, raise a service request through support providing a business case with your version requirements.
The following Note identifies the various components in your E-Business Suite environment that may need DST patches:
- Complying with Daylight Saving Time (DST) and Time Zone Rule Changes in E-Business Suite 12 (Note 563019.1)
Our certification of this DST timezone patch with Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 is currently underway.
Oracle's Revenue Recognition rules prohibit us from discussing certification and release dates, but you're welcome to monitor or subscribe to this blog. I'll post updates here as soon as soon as they're available.
