WebLogic Server 12.2.1.3.0 - Get Patch List with RESTful Management Services

Posted by Dirk Nachbar on Friday, September 08, 2017 with No comments
Yesterday, I discovered a new field within the RESTful Management Services under serverRuntime - patchList.

This new field contains the list of applied patches to your Oracle WebLogic Server 12.2.1.3.0 installation, so I thought, I will not longer need to access opatch lsinventory to retrieve the list of applied patches on my WebLogic Server installation ...

You can check the list of applied Patches with following URL call within a browser or just use a curl command:
http://<servername>:<port>/management/weblogic/latest/serverRuntime?links=none&fields=patchList


Now lets compare the above list with opatch lsinventory.

cd $ORACLE_HOME/OPatch
./opatch lsinventory

OPatch succeeded.

Looks so far so good. 4 applied Patches are reported with the RESTful Management Services URL access and the same 4 patches are reported with opatch lsinventory.

Now lets perform the same on an Oracle WebLogic Server 12.2.1.3.0 (Infrastructure) hosting Oracle Forms & Reports 12.2.1.3.0.

RESTful Management Services access http://<servername>:<port>/management/weblogic/latest/serverRuntime?links=none&fields=patchList give me a list of 11 applied patches:


And now the usual crosschecking with opatch lsinventory

cd $ORACLE_HOME/OPatch
./opatch lsinventory

OPatch succeeded.

Unfortunately opatch lsinventory reports me 14 applied patches on my environment while the RESTful Management Services reports only 11 patches :-(

Seems that there is a small unexpected feature (some people would call it a bug ...) within the WebLogic Server 12.2.1.3.0 Infrastructure version. I have already started a SR with Oracle about that, lets see what will be the result ..

So summing up, its a really nice enhancement to retrieve your applied patches via a simple URL call or curl command, but be careful depending on your version of the WebLogic Server (Generic or Infrastructure) you might not see the correct list.
