Oracle finally released a reporting tool that reports on the differences in E-Business Suite database objects between one release and another. That's a very useful reference to Tech users to understand EBS dictionary at a module level, but EBS defaults are delivered as seed data within the database objects themselves. What about the differences in this seed data between one release and another?
Oracle announces the availability of a new tool that provides comparison reports of E-Business Suite seed data between EBS 184.108.40.206, 12.0.4, 12.0.6, 12.1.1, and 12.1.3. This new tool complements the information in the data model comparison tool.
The EBS ATG Seed Data Comparison Report shows EBS ATG Seed data Entity changes between two EBS Releases. This report can assist advanced users with reviewing changes prior to an upgrade.
This comparison report is available for the following combinations of EBS releases:
220.127.116.11( with 11i.AD.I.4 & 11i.ATG_PF.H.Delta.4) vs. 12.1.3
12.0.4 vs. 12.1.3
12.0.6 vs. 12.1.3
12.1.1 vs. 12.1.3
