    Overview Oracle User Productivity Kit v11.1 improves existing and provides powerful new features that further the value

    and benefits that UPK brings to the enterprise application implementation lifecycle. UPK 11.1 includes new and

    improved features for recording, testing, collaboration and communication, as well as Player support for Apple

    iPad and support for tracking usage of third party content in Knowledge Center

    Release 11.1 The following features are included in release 11.1.

    Recording Oracle User Productivity Kit

    v11.1 provides new feature

    enhancements focused on

    enabling virtually anyone in the

    enterprise to participate in the

    UPK content development

    lifecycle. Whether capturing

    institutional knowledge,

    documenting the current state

    or capturing the steps to

    recreate an issue in an

    enterprise system, Record It!

    and the streamlined topic editor

    simplifies content creation and

    enables any user to quickly

    create and edit content in

    minutes without having to learn UPK. Subject matter experts, testers and business process owners can review

    topics, add author notes, and assign content for review making content contribution and knowledge sharing more

    efficient across the enterprise.



    Testing Ease the burden of user acceptance testing by using UPK to create and deploy test plans and in-application tester

    support. With the addition of the new Comments Pane in the Topic editor, Authors can now add expected results to

    populate Test Case, Test

    Document and Test It! outputs

    with the expected behavior for

    each step of the test plan.

    To assist in the execution of

    UAT, UPK 11.1 introduces real

    time performance support

    specifically designed for

    testing. Test It! simulations

    guide the tester through a test

    plan and streamline the

    capturing and compiling of test

    step results and tester

    comments. When issues are

    discovered, they are easily

    documented through a Test Step

    Notes editor which is linked to each

    test step. The process of logging defect reports is simplified with the ability to automatically generate the text of

    the steps necessary to recreate the problem.




    Available as a publishing option for the UPK

    Player, Test It! can be published in any existing

    combination of Player modes enabling the tester

    to review test procedures in a simulated

    environment prior to running the actual tests.

    UPK content review can be accelerated using

    Test It! as a content review tool. Content

    reviewers can review topics in the Test It!

    player assigning pass / fail to each topic frame

    and provide feedback using the Test Step Notes

    to direct UPK authors to the issue or needed

    correction. At the completion of each Test It!

    topic, UPK generates a test summary and

    detailed report which can be used to correct the


    Test It! Detailed Report



    Topic Frame Commenting A Frame Comments pane has been added in the Topic editor to better facilitate content development. This is

    available in UPK Developer and the Record It! Wizard and enables authors to enhance their content creation and

    knowledge transfer efforts with author notes and instructor notes.

    Expected Results enables authors to enter the

    expected results used to evaluate the success

    or failure of a test step directly in the UPK

    development environment simplifying test

    script creation and maintenance. Expected

    Results are available in the test case, and test

    document outputs as well as the new Test It!


    Author Notes enable authors to store internal

    notes at a topic frame level and can be added

    during recording and content editing.

    Similar to Topic level Instructor Notes, Frame

    level Instructor Notes provide a method to

    communicate content guidance in curriculum

    development projects where content will be

    handed off for delivery. Instructor notes can

    be added to the Instructor Manual or other

    document outputs via a new document

    publishing style bookmark.
