How will updating my site affect my Customer Portal pages?


Customer Portal (CP) Administration and Migrations
Oracle B2C Service, All versions


If you are using Customer Portal, the look and feel of your page set will not change after an update cutover of your Oracle B2C Service site.

Your Customer Portal implementation will remain on the same Customer Portal framework version after the update. The Customer Portal framework can be updated to a newer version outside of the update process. Changes to the Customer Portal files on the production site when an upgrade site is present will be discarded at update unless the files are applied to the upgrade site.

For more information on migrating Customer Portal, refer to the Customer Portal Migration Guide for your version:
