How to Connect Oracle EPM Cloud Subscriptions

If you own multiple Oracle EPM Cloud subscriptions, you can connect them to each other. This allows users to easily toggle between different subscriptions when they log into one solution.

This functionality is provided through “EPM Connections.” By using EPM Connections, you will be able to:

  • Use the “Navigator” capability to move from one application to another

  • Use clusters and cards to open forms, reports, etc. from another application

It is important to mention that at this time, not all the EPM applications can act as a source connection.

The source subscriptions can include:

The target subscriptions can include:

Let’s look at “Connections” first, and then we will quickly review the clusters and cards. “Connections” is under “Tools.”

From this screen, you will be able to create, edit, or remove connections.

How to Create a New Connection

As we mentioned earlier, nine different subscriptions can act as a target application.

I will use Oracle Financial Close and Consolidation Cloud (FCCS) as an example. Once you have provided the application information seen below, click “Validate” to validate the connection.

If the settings are established correctly, you will be able to see the applications when you click the “Navigator” button.

There are some caveats:

  • If the target and source subscription instances are not on the same identity domain, then you will not be able to establish a connection between them.
