Download Assistant for RUs, RURs, BPs, PSUs, Patch Sets and Releases

Download Assistant for RUs, RURs, BPs, PSUs, Patch Sets and ReleasesHow often did I launch a search in MyOracle Support (MOS) for a specific Bundle Patch or Patch Set Update. And usually the MOS search results don’t get me what I’m looking for no matter how clever I search. But there was relief. A MOS Note combined all PSUs and BPs and much more into table format including the links. But what if there would be a Download Assistant for RUs, RURs, BPs, PSUs, Patch Sets and Releases?

I did blog about the previous magic note a while back:
Where is the Jan 2017 PSU for Oracle Database 11.2.0.4?

But it has been revised and transformed now into a Download Assistant.

The New Download Assistant for RUs, RURs, BPs, PSUs, Patch Sets and Releases

This is the MOS Note you must bookmark and/or add to your Favorites:

MOS Note: 2118136.2
Assistant: Download Reference for Oracle Database/GI PSU, SPU(CPU), Bundle Patches, Patchsets and Base Releases

Start by choosing the type of patch or release you’d like to download:

Let’s try to download the most recent Bundle Patch for an Oracle Database 12.1.0.2 installation. Click on “Oracle Database PSU, SPU (CPU), Bundle Patches“:

Afterwards you’ll choose the version. “12.1.0.2” in my example. A frame to the right will appear now offering all the available PSUs, SPUs and Bundle Patches for Oracle Database 12.1.0.2.:

On Windows you have no choice: pick the newest Bundle Patch in the rightmost column. On all over platforms I’d highly recommend you to pick the Proactive Bundle Patch – and of course the newest one.

In case you need more advice or clarification whether to use PSUs or BPs or RUs or RURs please read here:
PSU or BP? Patch Set Update or Bundle Patch? RUR or RU?

And just in case you’d like to change your selection or download a second patch – click on the Change tag.

Thanks to my Support colleagues who maintain this note – this is SUPER HELPFUL!
