The May updates for Oracle's Account Reconciliation Cloud Service (ARCS) are here. In this blog post, we’ll outline new features in ARCS, including accessing exported transactions file, updates to snapshot retention policy, and more.
We’ll let you know any time there are updates to ARCS or any other Oracle EPM cloud products. Check the US-Analytics Oracle EPM & BI Blog every month.
The monthly update for Oracle ARCS will occur on Friday, June 15 during your normal daily maintenance window.
ARCS New Features
Accessing Exported Transaction Files
In Transaction Matching, you can now access the exported transactions file directly from Unmatched Transactions in addition to going to Jobs History.
Updates to Snapshot Retention Policy
The daily maintenance process has been enhanced to prevent large accumulation of snapshots (over 150 GB) in EPM Cloud environments.
By default, the snapshots that you create through the export process or upload to an environment are stored for a period not exceeding 60 days after which they are automatically removed. Starting with this update, the daily maintenance process will automatically remove snapshots prior to sixty days, oldest first, to prevent the total size of all snapshots from exceeding 150 GB, which may adversely impact your environment. The daily maintenance snapshot, irrespective of its size, is always retained in EPM Cloud environments.
In the Academy, some pages and icons may appear different in the video and the Cloud service.
It is a best practice to use Refresh within the Account Reconciliation Cloud user interface rather than performing a browser refresh.
