About Oracle Applications doens’t display Forms Server Information

Filed under: 11i, Techstack — kkempf @ 3:18 pm

After a recent upgrade to Forms 6.0.8.28, I expected to go into Help->About Oracle Applications and be rewarded with the new version number; instead I got the screen on the left below.

Did a little digging and it took me quite some time to find the answer. As of ATG RUP5, it seems this has been purposely hidden for security purposes via a profile option value. This is detailed in Note 438274.1. Setting FND: Diagnostics to “Yes” at the site level and bouncing Apache yields results I’m more accustomed to seeing, on the right below.
