How to extract & upload your custom code using the code box?

Panaya solution requires running a Java Script on your Oracle Apps Server.
This Script performs the following tasks:
  • Extraction of custom developed code.
  • Identification of the usage of these custom objects within your Oracle Apps system.

  1. Upload panaya-extractor.jar to your Oracle Application Server.
  2. Change your working directory to the location of the panaya-extractor.jar
  3. Using your Oracle Apps OS user, execute the following command:
    java -jar panaya-extractor.jar -prompt [<ETL type>] [-customJavaTop=<Custom Java Top>]

    * The target version is the version you wish to upgrade to

    If you wish to expedite the extraction process when upgrading to Oracle EBS version 12.2 and above, click here


    Parameters explanation
    [<ETL type>] - What data to extract during the ETL 

    [-customJavaTop=<Custom Java Top>] - Path(s) to your framework projects other than $JAVA_TOP.
    If more than one path is defined in the classpath, use ':' as a delimiter - If -customJavaTop is not specified, will use only $JAVA_TOP.

    [-prompt] - this will open up a dialog box for the user to enter the APPS and/or SYSTEM password. This will mask the password for cases where other users attempt to sign in to the system and execute the command ps -ef.

    For Oracle EBS target version up to 12.1.3 (including) the prompt will request the APPS password.
    For Oracle EBS target version above 12.2 (including) the prompt will request both APPS and SYSTEM password.

    F - Full ETL (Customizations & Usage data) Please use this for the first extraction
    C - Customizations only
    U - Usage only

    If no ETL type is specified, a Full ETL will be executed

    During the extraction process, an output directory will automatically will be created for you.
    The name of the directory will be output_<date>_<time>.

    At the end of the process, one ZIP File will be created in your output directory, which you will need to upload to Panaya Code Box.
    If you do not have access from your Application server to the Panaya web site, please copy the file from there.
It is not recommended to use the CustomJavaTop parameter for the $Java_Top path itself.
Instead, use the Custom Java Top Parameter if it points to a different path than the JavaTop you are using. 
Good to Know!
If you run the Concurrent Manager on a different server than the Oracle Application server, a separate extraction must be done from each server.
If you have shared APPL_TOP with your Concurrent Manager server, you do not need to do a separate extraction.
Upload the Extract File
  1. Upload the ZIP file to Panaya Code Box
  2. Click on the Upload button 
  3. Users with the following permissions will be notified by email once the analysis is available (this usually takes 48 hours or less) - 
    - Code Box - Upload ETL and/or Upload PTL permissions
    - Users - Create and Edit permission
