Autoconfig templates ?

The company I work right now uses autoconfig. No problem off course, but they also have a lot off custom templates. Autoconfig uses templates to generate the configuration files so the EBS can work properly. When you want to add customizations the a template, you place that template in the ‘custom’ directory in the $product_top/template, and autoconfig uses this custom template instead of the default Oracle template…

But how do you know which templates are customized ?
I ran into the following script in the $AD_TOP/bin directory….

Use the following syntax
./ contextfile= ‘path to your contextfile’

And you get a report with all the templates used by autoconfig, the target directory and if there is a custom version of the template. Very nice script…

So for example the adovars.env file and its custom version…

TEMPLATE FILE : /opt/software/applmgr/EBS/appl/ad/11.5.0/admin/template/adovars_ux.env
TARGET FILE : /opt/software/applmgr/EBS/appl/admin/adovars.env

TEMPLATE FILE : /opt/software/applmgr/EBS/appl/ad/11.5.0/admin/template/APPLSYS_ux.env
CUSTOM TEMPLATE : /opt/software/applmgr/EBS/appl/ad/11.5.0/admin/template/custom/APPLSYS_ux.env
TARGET FILE : /opt/software/applmgr/EBS/appl/EBS_ebs-p01.env
