Viewing Process Request Results

You can view the results of a process request in one of two ways:

Process Request Tab

The Process Request tab displays information regarding all the object management requests submitted to the Oracle Agent, including:

The Process Request tab in the Change Management/Version Control window displays the same information as the Process Request tab in the Management Console except for the following differences:

The Process Request tab in the Change Management/Version Control window features an Impact Obj. button that lets you view the list of objects returned by an impact analysis or patch apply process request.

Click Impact Obj.

The Impacted Objects window lists all the objects that were either returned during an impact analysis request or were modified by a patch application request. The information includes the class, type, name, product and language of each object, its pre- and post-patch version number, application name, modification date for the record, and the name of the requestor. The Custom Object column indicates if the object has been customized, and the Indirect Impact column indicates if the object was used as the source of a new object.

If applicable, you can view the navigation paths that access an object (for example, the responsibilities and menus that access a form) by selecting the object and clicking Nav Path. Stat displays the navigation paths in the View Navigation Path window. Only active navigation paths associated with one or more active users are included.

In the Process Request tab, you can view the log files and messages generated by the Stat Oracle Agent while processing object management requests (including patch applications, backouts, and impact analysis as well as archiving and migrating objects). These log files include detailed information that pinpoint the source of warnings and errors generated during processing. For more information, see Viewing Log Files and Agent Messages .

Environment History Tab

The Environment History tab displays a record of all the patch application, patch backout, and impact analysis requests that are either pending or have been completed in each active environment.

If any of the environments displayed in the Environment History tab have been refreshed, you can view the information in the tab in either a state-based or activity-based format. A state-based report takes into account changes made to an environment due to a refresh event. It shows the impact analyses and patches that have been applied to an environment at a particular moment in time. This is in contrast to activity-based reports that show all the impact analyses and patches that have been applied to an environment, even those that have been overwritten due to a refresh event. For more information on environment refresh events and state-based and activity-based reporting, see Change/Service Requests .

The Environment History tab also features an Impacted Objs. button, which functions the same way as the Impacted Analysis button described in the section, Process Request Tab .

To switch the view between patch application, backout, or impact analysis requests, click Patch Apply or Impact Analysis. Patch backout requests are displayed with patch application requests. To switch between state-based and activity-based reporting, select the corresponding check box.

In the Environment History tab, the Process Status column shows if AutoPatch encountered an error when processing a patch. Possible statuses include Completed, Completed with Warnings, and Completed with Errors (Pending requests have a status of Pending/New, Sent to Agent, Received by Agent, or In Process. The status Not Processed means AutoPatch failed the process event before processing the driver). There are many reasons why AutoPatch may fail to process a patch, some of which are trivial and can be disregarded. However, because failed patches are treated differently by other functions within Stat (such as environment compare), you can manually change the status of a patch if you determine the reasons it failed are insignificant (as indicated in the AutoPatch log file). You may also want to assign a patch that completed successfully an error-type status. This feature works in conjunction with manually changing the status of process events and patch driver files. To properly change the status of a patch, users must also change the status of the process event and associated driver files, in addition to the patch itself. For more information, see Changing Process Event Statuses and Viewing Patch Approvals and Patch Drivers .

Available options include Completed, Completed with Warnings, and Completed with Errors.

In the Required Explanation field, describe the reason why you are changing the status in sufficient detail. Then click Save.

You can view driver files or approval information concerning a patch application or backout request by right-clicking it and in the pop-up menu selecting either View Patch Approvals or View Patch Drivers. The Patch Approvals window shows the name of each user that has approved the patch, if any, and the date when the approval was made. The Patch Drivers window shows the driver files that were processed when AutoPatch executed the patch application request.

In the Patch Drivers window, the Process Status column shows if AutoPatch encountered an error when processing a driver file. Possible statuses include Completed, Completed with Warnings, and Completed with Errors (Pending requests have a status of Pending/New, Sent to Agent, Received by Agent, or In Process. The status Not Processed means AutoPatch failed the process event before processing the driver).

There are many reasons why AutoPatch may fail to process a driver file, some of which are trivial and can be disregarded. However, because patches with driver files that failed to process may be treated differently by other functions within Stat (such as environment compare), you can manually change the status of a driver file if the reasons it failed to process (as indicated in the AutoPatch log file) are insignificant.

You may also want to assign a patch that completed successfully an error-type status. This feature works in conjunction with manually changing the status of process events and patches. To properly change the status of a driver file, users must also change the status of the process event and the patch, in addition to the driver files. For more information, see Changing Patch Process Statuses and Changing Process Event Statuses .

Available options include Completed, Completed with Warnings, and Completed with Errors.

Rescheduling Requests

If the Stat Central Agent is for some reason unable to process your patch application or impact analysis request (for example, because the server that hosts the target environment is down), you can reschedule the request and have the Agent process it a second time. You can initiate a reschedule request from the Process Request tab of either the Oracle Applications Management Console or the Change Management/Version Control window.

Click Reschedule.
Stat opens the Schedule Request window. The Process Type and Environment fields display in read-only format the same values as the original request.
