enable customization for compliance evaluation. Note that parameterization 
and remediation actions require the creation of a custom site.

of Oracle Database.

·       The checklist now contains a new non-compliance Fixlet “Verify

executed for all the running instances on Oracle Server.

·       Updated Applicability Fixlet to ensure freshness of the compliance 
data. The Checklist will be reported as “Not Applicable” in the SCA 
reports, if Environment Setup Task is not executed for 90 days.
