    This note provides information about Fusion OTBI R12 PB10 (2017 October monthly patch bundle).
    Over the weekend of Oct.7, 2017, OTBI R12 October monthly patch bundle (PB10) was rolled out to all Stage pods setup for monthly patching and Production pods setup for concurrent patching. After the patch bundle rollout, it was discovered that the PB10 RPD had been generated with an invalid version of BISERVER, and the issue caused custom OTBI reports and dashboards to return incorrect data. Oracle development has cancelled the planned OTBI PB10 rollout to the remaining R12 Production pods.
    For the R12 stage pods that have been affected, a one-off patch will be executed on the stage pods to revert the OTBI PB10 RPD to OTBI PB9 RPD on the weekend of October 28, 2017.
    Since OTBI PBs are cumulative, fixes that were to be included in the OTBI PB10 will automatically be included into the next monthly patch bundle, R12 OTBI PB11. R12 OTBI PB11 will go out to the stage pods as planned on Nov 4th, 2017.
    Given the short 2-week time window, between now and OTBI PB11, we encourage customers who need PB10 fixes to wait for the November PB11. However, if a critical issue demands a one-off fix, customers can submit a request to Support for a one-off PB10 backport.
