Oracle April 2022 Critical Patch Update Released

The Critical Patch Update provides security updates for a wide range of applications across Oracle's catalogue of products.

Published on 19th April 2022

Oracle today released the April 2022 Critical Patch Update.

This Critical Patch Update provides security updates for a wide range of product families, including: Oracle Database Server, Oracle Autonomous Health Framework, Oracle Blockchain Platform, Oracle GoldenGate, Oracle REST Data Services, Oracle Commerce, Oracle Communications Applications, Oracle Communications, Oracle Construction and Engineering, Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle Enterprise Manager, Oracle Financial Services Applications, Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Health Sciences Applications, Oracle HealthCare Applications, Oracle Hospitality Applications, Oracle Hyperion, Oracle iLearning, Oracle Insurance Applications, Oracle Java SE, Oracle JD Edwards, Oracle MySQL, Oracle PeopleSoft, Oracle Retail Applications, Oracle Supply Chain, Oracle Support Tools, Oracle Systems, Oracle Taleo, Oracle Utilities Applications, Oracle Virtualization.

With this Critical Patch Update release, Oracle is making a small adjustment to the Critical Patch Update release schedule.  Critical Patch Updates will no longer be released on the Tuesday closest to the 17th of the month of January, April, July, and October, but they will be released on the third Tuesday of January, April, July, and October.   This minor adjustment will not affect the frequency of Critical Patch Update releases (still 4 times a year), but essentially, makes it easier to set calendar reminders and determine the date of future Critical Patch Update releases.

For more information about the April 2022 Critical Patch Update, customers should refer to the Critical Patch Update Advisory located at and the executive summary published on My Oracle Support (Doc ID 2857016.1).
