New HFM Index Utility Available
There is new utility in HFM 188.8.131.52.500 – PSE 18921957-- It checks the corresponding HFM database and reports the index issues and its corresponding actions to be taken!
In a recent patch set update, Oracle provides a new utility that will analyze HFM Indexes.
This is for release 184.108.40.206.500 via Patch Set Exception (PSE): 18921957. However, you can use this utility on any 11.1.2.x version. The patch:
- Examines the indexes on the database tables and compare them against the required indexes to see if any changes should be made
- Can be used to repair an issue that may have been caused by certain versions of the HFM Copy Application utility

“The index update utility operates in three modes. The first is to examine the existing database table indexes on an HFM application and generate a report outline any potential problems that may exist. The second option will generate a report and a file of SQL commands to drop and recreate any possibly missing or incorrect indexes. The third form generates a report and instantly executes the commands to drop/recreate indexes."
