The EPM Foundation Services in Workspace 22.214.171.124.300.20 could not resolve role
Examination of LCM export of all provisioning as well as Users, Groups and Roles indicates this role is not in Shared Services.
Oracle Support indicates:
There is no problem with the user provisioning. Everything is working correctly. In a future release we will address this so that no error message is logged.
This bug won’t not cause any functional problems.
Error messages that repetitively appear in FoundationServices0, the Workspace.log, like:
[2013-08-16T20:51:47.921-04:00] [FoundationServices0] [ERROR]  [oracle.bi.bifndnepm.workspace.security.RoleChecker] [tid: 14] [userId: ] [ecid: 123414233212341234123412340000e,0] [SRC_CLASS: com.oracle.workspace.security.RoleChecker] [APP: WORKSPACE#126.96.36.199] [SRC_METHOD: initializeRoleCache:187] Could not resolve role: native://DN=cn=HUB:23,ou=HUB,ou=Roles,dc=css,dc=hyperion,dc=com?ROLE
When creating a Taskflow in 188.8.131.52 Consolidation Administration, “Add Link” fails, and may open a 404 page not found. The Taskflow will not become visible in Workspace > Consolidation Administration. You will be unable to create Taskflows. You will likely be unable LCM Export or LCM Import Taskflows.
The source of the issue is a missing library; The solution is to add commons-dbcp-1.2.2.jar (‘D:\Oracle\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1\common\JakartaCommons\commons-dbcp-1.2.2.jar;’) to the end of
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Hyperion Solutions\FoundationServices0\HyS9FoundationServices key in Windows Registry that starts with -Djava.class.path=
Restart the HSS Server after adding the reference to the class path.

In 184.108.40.206.305 verified on multiple client environments the scheduler in Taskflows does not work in an EPM installation that includes SOA. There are additional bugs to work through which will get written up as time permits. Furthermore, once the problem is identified using SQL Server trace files a solution creates downstream issues that are interesting to diagnose and resolve.
The source of the issue is a conflict in the version of quartz used by HFM and FCM. An EPM system that includes SOA will create [
D:\Oracle\Middleware\Oracle_SOA1\soa\modules\quartz-all-1.6.5.jar] in the Windows Registry FoundationServices classpath during installation.
Manually changing the value in -Djava.class.path [
D:\Oracle\Middleware\Oracle_SOA1\soa\modules\quartz-all-1.6.5.jar] replacing it with [
D:\Oracle\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1\common\SharedServices\220.127.116.11\lib\quartz.jar] Windows Registry for Foundation Services will cause deployed automated integrations to fail.
using script or starting from command line made no difference
After restart all SysInt*composites in SOA went to a conflicted state, started throwing null pointer exceptions and could not be undeployed, redeployed or retired. Cound not import any of the Integration Types that are automated via Workspace. These issues are related.
work through undeploy in Enterprise Manager, ignoring errors, for all SysInt* composites
Restart the EPMSystem (using the usual script)
Not all SysInt*composites had been removed, however, import HFM integration types succeeded. Null pointer errors in logs stopped.
The integration of so many EPM System products + SOA creates interesting challenges. This one is listed as an unpublished bug on Oracle Support.

Tim Tow’s Outline Extractor Released
On Saturday, July 13, 2013, an outline extractor which only works with 11.1.2.x and higher and provides XML output was released. For those of us who used the old Visual Basic extractor provided by Olap Underground and maintained by Tim Tow’s organization, this is good news.
Joe Aultman presents the importance of being automated in chapter 9 “System Automation The Groovy Way” which jump-starts automation techniques for finance and IT professionals with an example of building an outline extractor in 7 steps.
As Tim noted, “You still have to do something with the XML format for it to be useful.”

Period close in the extended enterprise transitions with intensive processes through ledger\sub-ledger close, data loads, data mapping, and the consolidations, reconciliations, tax, treasury and reporting essential to achieve financial close. Timely results delivered on a daily or weekly basis provide control of compliance and truth while the business conducts audit, analysis and regulatory functions. Oracle’s Financial Close Suite integrates existing:
- consolidation administration
- governance, risk and compliance
- tax provisioning
- data assurance
- document filing and administration
- financial and management reporting
- enterprise resource planning
in automated and managed close that finance users can manage in sustainable accurate and auditable processes.
As ARM and FCM extend the Oracle Fusion Middleware SOA Suite for EPM System products, an experienced resource is recommended to navigate the layers of compexity and challenges to creating an effective FCM/ARM implementation alongside the usual Oracle EPM products.
Having recent and comprehensive experience with implementing Oracle Hyperion Financial Close Suite, I am enthusiastic about the dynamic opportunity for addressing regulatory, compliance and reporting challenges with this solution.
This post is part one of a primer on FCM implementation.
