Oracle Database Patches Information

A number of questions has been asked here and in Oracle Community Forum When/What/Date for Next Database patches ?

in the all way you should have valid account for http://support.oracle.com.

I see it’s worth it to post and share the information how to find the desire patch number and how to know next patch release, i will only share MOS document number that will help you understand what i mean.

How to Find Patch ? 

  • Oracle Recommended Patches — Oracle Database (Doc ID 756671.1)
  • Quick Reference to Patch Numbers for Database PSU, SPU(CPU), Bundle Patches and Patchsets [1454618.1]
  • Release Schedule of Current Database Releases [742060.1]
  • Introduction to Oracle Recommended Patches [756388.1]
  • Oracle Database Patchset Information, Versions 10.2.0 to 12.1.0 (Doc ID 268895.1)
  • ALERT: Oracle 11g Release 1 (11.1) Support Status and Alerts (Doc ID 454507.1)
The above MOS document will guide you and help you to know the next release of database patch, also as you see i included some document that helps for recommended patch.
REGISTRY$HISTORY contains information about the applied patches PSU, SRU or CPU and you can use Oracle Base Script from here.
