Oracle PBCS Application Instance Restart

After reviewing Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service (PBCS) documentation, I found a EPMAUTOMATE command that I consider to be useful for all developers and administrators. The “resetservice” command will restart PBCS instance clearing memory and it will help improve application performance.

Oracle PBCS documentation:

“Restarts the service instance. Use this command only when you observe severe performance degradation or if you receive error messages indicating that the instance is unusable. Service reset does not affect your application customizations (for example, locale change, settings related to theme and currency, etc.). Reset takes up to 15 minutes.”


Open command line prompt
C:\Oracle\EPM Automate\bin>epmautomate login admin password domain
Login successful

C:\Oracle\EPM Automate\bin>epmautomate resetservice “TEST”
Are you sure you want to restart the service instance (yes/no): no ?[Press Enter]
User cancelled the resetservice command

Retrieving status…
resetservice completed successfully

The restart of the Planning instance takes a little over 15 minutes complete.
