Are you planning to upgrade to 9.2.4 this year to benefit from any of these cool new features?

With the turn of this new ‘roaring’ decade, 2020 brings not only at least 10 more years of premier support for 9.2, but also the new Apps & Tools 9.2.4 – and with the realization that ~87% of JDE customers will be on the latest version by the end this year (Quest Survey 2018), there has never been a better time to take advantage of #ContinuousInnovation with JD Edwards #2020LetsDoThis

Here are some of the highlights from the latest Apps Release and Tools Release 9.2.4. For those looking to see some of these features in action, CE has several demo replays available on demand including What’s New in Tools 9.2.4 and JDE Orchestrator What’s New. You can also find these enhancements – in addition to a holistic overview of all available 9.2 updates – latest 9.2 Capabilities Whitepaper. These are also great resources to share with your team 😊

Digital Transformation

Redesigned Orchestrator Studio that simplifies the process of creating complex orchestrations for technical & nontechnical users, as well as making it easier to deploy, maintain & secure:

  • Top-level access to all orchestration components directly from the Orchestrator Studio homepage
  • Orchestrations are now displayed in a graphical flow model
  • Run orchestrations directly from within the Studio without requiring a separate sign-on
  • Lists of orchestrations & notifications can now be grouped & sorted by name, date, product code or user-defined category
  • Nested import & export
  • Simplified deployment – the Orchestrator Studio is now deployed as a component of the AIS server
  • Simplified security – users no longer need to be added to an AIS whitelist to access Orchestrator Studio (aligned with the standard E1 application security model)

New Orchestrator Scheduler User Interface that makes it easier to start, stop and monitor scheduled jobs:


  • Single-click start & stop of scheduled jobs
  • Metrics for last run time, next scheduled run time, successes/failures of scheduled jobs
  • Toggle button to automatically start a job whenever the AIS server is restarted

One View Watchlist has been enhanced with an option to mark a Summary Row in an application


User Experience

  • Form Extensibility – orchestrations can now run iteratively over each selected row in a grid and map the output back to header & grid fields
  • Form Personalization – system administrators can now restrict access to the base form, removing the need to customize applications
  • Color Coding of Environments – color schemes for each JDE environment (Production, Test, Development) can now be customized to more easily identify which environment users are logged in to

Operational Simplification

  • Terraform Stage Server Image – additional automation now available for OCI that accelerates the provisioning of the JDE reference architecture through One-Click
  • 64-Bit Enablement for the Deployment Server
  • New Merge Tools to help manage customizations in UBEs, table indexes and business views
  • Support of File Path Encryption for Downloads
