These are test performed:

Categories typically align with the product menu structure and include both activity and data collection tests.

How many tests are available?

How to get started

The diagnostic tests are delivered in a standard Oracle patch and area applied using adpatch utility.

Support diagnostic patches may be safely applied to any instance without integration and functional testing. As noted above, they do not alter data or configuration

Once required patch is applied then you assign the "Oracle Diagnostic Tool" Responsibility which is seeded responsibility that comes to EBS suite, last year and accessible to all EBS user.

Once you login to the system, you will notice, that is only one menu inside that responsibility as fig 2:

Once you click to the menu, it will call a self-services page that will have all list of test available with respect to application module. The good is that Oracle does provide test for most of the popular modules for diagnostic.

These activities are listed on the left hand side, where as right hand area will have the parameter form to run the report as figure below:

 

 

once you click to report, we get the entire report which looks like:

There are three options available for the user, either they can print, save or upload the same to support.

2. When a well formatted html page containing the output is generated save it in your local machine using your browser standard functionality to save a page
3. Upload the saved page (output) to Metalink updating the TAR if required.

hello Grant Cohn ;

This is very common problem, I am not very sure which version are you are running this Diagontic test in Oracle.Looking to my old note, I did get sometime in 11.5.9 and I did get the same many times, and outcome this resolution end up with some patches.

No Groups have been registered for the Advance Test or No Groups have been registered for the Basic Test, a very common , last time I did manage by applying
Patch 5529008, so could you please make sure is applied or not at your end.

run this
select * from ad_bugs where bug_id=5529008
if not there is must need to apply a patch, else i would advice to log SR with Oracle.

Meanwhile just checkit out in note Note:235307.1 might you get some link.

thanks
sanjit
