IdM 7.2 on Oracle 12 - is it supported?

Hi All

With SAP IdM 7.2 being out of support I can no longer see the entry in PAM. I can find one thread that implies that Oracle 12 was supported.

I would like to find a more official statement of what is (was!) supported. We need to upgrade from Oracle 11 to 12 as part of an upgrade from 7.2 to 8.0. We will do the DB upgrade first, so ideally we would confirm the system still works with a round of testing post-Oracle upgrade and pre-IdM 7.2 to 8.0 upgrade. Side-car approach is not an option here.

Any ideas how I can confirm which Oracle 12 versions (patch levels) were supported for 7.2, without the PAM entry? It's a quick question, looking for a quick answer, so logging an incident is something I have considered but am hoping to get a speedier response here.

    Hi All

    Seems to be implied that it is supported. Since 12 is not supported by 7.2 and 11 is not supported by 8 there is a part of the upgrade process in which you must be unsupported to move to a supported version. My assumption is that very few companies have upgraded in-situ and most opt for side-car, (aka. side-box, i.e. installing a fresh IdM 8.0 system and using migration tools to bring data across) so the chances of finding anyone with experience of in-situ and this exact Oracle version are narrow. Still, let me know how you have approached an in-situ upgrade on Oracle including a change of Oracle version if you have done it? I would be very interested in hearing about it.
