I’m trying to find what is the ‘OTM System Name’ when I install Financial PIP (OTM -Oracle EBS).
Can you help me?
A lot of thanks,

Atul Kumar says August 9, 2010

@ Oksana,
This is optional field which can be ignored.

If you can’t proceed further then please share which version of AIA you are installing and which version of OTM with which version of EBS ?

Ksundel says August 9, 2010

Thank you!
I’m trying to install Financial PIP for OTM 6.1.1 and OEBS 12.1.1 (SOA, AIA 2.5).
And what about field:’Workflow Business Event System Name’? Is it optional?

p.s.. this post helped me easy install AIA FP, but I get problems with PIP.

Atul Kumar says August 9, 2010

@ Ksundel,
As name suggests this is name of Workflow BES of your E-Business Suite.

Note that We also provide remote installation/configuration service (this is paid service) . Do let me know if you or your employer would like to do remote installation/configuration for PIPs
