How to create an Unattended Setup using the P6Professional-setup.msi (Doc ID 1580264.1)

P6 has the ClickOnce option which we’ve developed to help the end user install and get updates with no IT intervention. Customers can also modify the installation process and create their own unattended setup that would be similar to ClickOnce. However, the unattended setup does not automatically account for upgrades and patches. I would suggest that a customer use ClickOnce.

Where can I find information on backup and restore of database?

What is Oracle Secure Global Desktop (SGD)?

Oracle Secure Global Desktop
Oracle Secure Global Desktop (SGD) is a secure remote access solution for any cloud-hosted enterprise applications and desktops running on Microsoft Windows, Linux, Solaris and mainframe servers, from a wide range of popular client devices, including Windows PCs, Macs, Linux PCs, and tablets such as the Apple iPad and Android-based devices.  Oracle Secure Global Desktop gives users the ability to work securely from any device and anywhere, while providing administrators the tools they need to control access to applications and desktop environments resident in the data center.
Oracle Secure Global Desktop is great for users inside the corporate firewall, and via the SGD Gateway, for users outside the firewall too. No VPN is required.
And SGD is certified for use with Oracle’s web-based applications such as Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle Siebel CRM, Oracle Primavera and many others- and is also certified for use with Oracle’s Exalogic Elastic Cloud system to provide secure access directly to Oracle Applications co-resident in Exalogic for an exceptionally responsive user experience.

How Can Microsoft Azure Active Directory be Configured As The Identity Provider For Primavera P6 EPPM Cloud Environments?

In case any of your customers ask about this integration. They can use this doc/link as a starting point, but eventually may need to submit a SR for assistance.

In P6 cloud I want to set the default number of activities.

Your administrator can set a default value for the max number of activities that appear on the activities page. On prem can be done by someone local, but cloud will need to be done by Oracle Support via the SR process. It is not always allowed as this can impact performance because of load time.

Here is a link to the documentation that is pretty comprehensive.  The second link is a video of Team Member.

If you want to upgrade from version earlier than 7.0 to 18.x.

If you have a version of P6 on premises that is prior to 7.0, it will need to be upgraded to 7 before it can go to the current version.

If a user's email address is deleted, will their access be denied?

No, they will still be able to access P6. The only way to disable them is to go into the cloud administration section>select user>disable.

Can you create another cloud administrator once provisioning is complete in the cloud?

Yes, you can create another cloud administrator in the cloud administration area. You can get there from the cloud portal screen. It is located on the lower left hand corner. Once there, you can go to the user>application access>select cloud administrator and move it to the right for the user to have that access.
