Agile PLM Mobile is an application you download and install on your mobile device to quickly and easily access PLM data. Users can securely review, respond, and react to a broad range of Agile PLM workflows, change orders, quality issues, CAPA processes, and much more.
You must have the patch installed on your Agile server and have the corresponding application installed on your mobile device.
Oracle has certified Agile PLM Mobile to work with the following systems. Here is a compatibility matrix for the application:
The Agile PLM Mobile application will work whether your Agile PLM server is running on Windows, Linux, Unix, AIX, or Solaris operating systems.
There are several prerequisite patches for PLM Mobile, which need to be downloaded from here. These are server-side patches that need to be installed before installing the actual PLM Mobile 4.0 application on the server. These patches are detailed in the table below. Follow the ‘Read Me’ instructions included with each patch for installation instructions.
Once the particular patches for your specific release of Agile have been installed, you’ll need to download the PLM Mobile 4.0 application patch. This will also be downloaded from Oracle support.
Stop the Agile and File Manager services.
As the ‘oracle’ user on the application server (or whatever user account was used for installation)
