GoldenGate Cloud Service (GGCS): Applying Patches to GoldenGate

Introduction

This document will walk you through how to patch the Oracle GoldenGate (OGG) in the GoldenGate Cloud Services (GGCS).

When there is a patch available for install in to your environment, you will see a message similar to one shown in Figure 1, in your GGCS environment. Before proceeding to apply the patch, stop the processes which are in running state (extract/replicat and manager). The patch process will fail if there are any processes in running state. Although not mandatory, it is a best practice to perform a backup of your GGCS environment before applying the patch.
