There is new utility in HFM – 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 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

Link to the patch:

“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.”
