Highlights: JD Edwards Release 9.2.2.5


The latest release of JD Edwards (9.2.2.5) is packed full of important updates. What does this mean for you? Our team of Oracle Certified Experts has reviewed the enhancements, providing highlights for both User Experience and Tools:

User Experience

  • Enhanced UX One Roles: Drilldown Navigation Capabilities on Analytic Components
    Additional roles and their Analytic Components now provide drilldown and right-click options on context menus with a selection of applications that can be launched. This allows users to easily navigate from analytic graphical presentations to review and act upon detailed master data or transaction information.
  • Adding Business View Columns to Form (query only)
    EnterpriseOne continues to empower citizen developers by providing frameworks to personalize and extend their EnterpriseOne implementation. Citizen developers can add available business view columns on the form header, grid, or both dynamically as user defined objects (UDOs).
  • Grid Personalization
    EnterpriseOne now supports the capability to personalize grid labels as part of the Grid Format user defined object. This will be very helpful for customers to personalize grid labels with more intuitive names for their user base without the need of development.
  • Application Exit Personalization
    This enables customers to further simplify form navigation and personalize their experience to meet specific role, industry, and user requirements. With the User Defined Object citizen developers can show, hide, and rename form exits as part of the Personal Form experience.

Tools

  • Delivered Notifications
    In October 2017, JD Edwards announced our EnterpriseOne Notifications capabilities. This new functionality is more than just a pop-up alert; the notification system enables workers to remain in touch with critical conditions and events that happen continuously throughout the enterprise. Notifications are available to subscribers even when not signed in to the JD Edwards system, raising awareness and enabling quick action. In this TR JD Edwards has delivered 35 EnterpriseOne notifications that will make it easier to quickly adopt this new functionality and bring immediate business value to our customers.
  • Assigned Subscriptions
    This allows a manager or business analyst can assign subscriptions by role to groups with a common interest or common security settings, removing the requirements of an end-user to individually subscribe to a notification.
  • Delivered Orchestrations
    This release includes business orchestrations to help automate a Procure-to-Pay process with a supplier portal system that previously would have required integration customizations. Customers can quickly adopt these orchestrations and drive immediate business value in your organization.
  • Orchestrator Process Recorder
    This tool provides a simple, intuitive method for a business analyst to create an Orchestrator form requests from within JD Edwards EnterpriseOne applications; making the process of creating service requests a very natural, familiar process for any user who knows how to use JD Edwards EnterpriseOne applications.
  • Launch a Report (UBE) as an Orchestration Step
    This enhancement adds the ability to launch a JD Edwards EnterpriseOne report or batch job as an orchestration step, thereby giving the business analyst even more capability to automate and simplify business processes.
  • Confirmed Completion of Orchestrations
    This feature enables Orchestrator to record the status and details of its successful and unsuccessful REST service requests, allowing successful requests to be confirmed and unsuccessful requests to be retried or debugged.
  • Orchestrator File Transfer
    With this feature business analysts can use Orchestrator file transfer features to either retrieve a file or send a file to a known location using FTP, SFTP, or REST protocols.
