Database Engine: 12.2.0.1

For Oracle 12c version 12.2.0.1, Oracle changed the way it releases Oracle Database updates. Instead of Patch Set Updates (PSUs), Oracle supplies Release Updates (RUs) and Release Updates Revisions (RURs). RUs contain optimizer changes, feature additions, and security fixes. RURs only contain security fixes for the two preceding quarterly patch cycles. With this new system, you have more control over the features that you install with each update.

The naming conventions have also changed for Oracle 12c version 12.2.0.1 versions. In previous versions, Amazon RDS for Oracle used the PSU naming convention of oracle-version.vpatch-version. The patch-version corresponded with an Oracle PSU. For example, in Oracle for Amazon RDS version 12.1.0.2.v13, the v13 part of the version number corresponds with an Oracle PSU.

Oracle 12c version 12.2.0.1 naming conventions account for both RU and RUR updates. For example, the first Amazon RDS for Oracle version available is 12.2.0.1.ru-2018-10.rur-2018-10.r1. In this example, 12.2 is the major version, and 0.1 is the minor version. The revision version has the following parts:

  • ru-2018-10 – the October RU

  • rur-2018-10 – the October RUR for the October RU

  • r1 – Internal Amazon RDS revision, which lets Amazon RDS differentiate between emergency patches of pre-existing RU/RURs

For more information about the new Oracle Database versioning system, see the posts Differences between PSU / BP and RU / RUR at the Upgrade your Database – NOW! blog and RU and RUR patches for Oracle 12.2 at the Oracle–Help blog.
