Users are assigned a set of responsibilities through which they can retrieve or modify certain set of data.     Users and Responsibilities are created in oracle applications in order to control the access to the data. Author : Amit R Tiwari 6/19/2012 9 . Responsibility is a grouping of access in a logical manner. make payments etc. We can create users. Accounts payable responsibility would contain all the privileges to create invoices. responsibility through system administrator responsibility in oracle applications. All the users from the payables department would be given this responsibility.

You can select from any of the attributes assigned to the user's responsibility.Attribute : Select an attribute you want used to determine which records this user can access. no information is returned for that attribute. assign the securing attribute of CUSTOMER_ID to the ADMIN responsibility. You may assign one or more values for any of the securing attributes assigned to the user.

If a securing attribute is assigned to both a responsibility and to a user.  Securing attributes are used by Oracle HTML-based applications to allow rows (records) of data to be visible to specified users or responsibilities based on the specific data (attribute values) contained in the row.  Value : Enter the value for the attribute you want used to determine which records this user can access.  For example. the only customer data they have access to has a CUSTOMER_ID value of 1000. but the user does not have a value for that securing attribute.

Perl Concurrent Program – used for programs written in CGI Perl. Immediate – execution file is a program written to run as subroutine of the concurrent manager. basically the language of the host operating system PL/SQL Stored procedure – used to run the stored procedure through oracle applications SQL*Loader – used to run the sql loader programs SQL*Plus .            Oracle Reports – used for the RDF reports Host – used for shell scripts. Request Set Stage Function – PL/SQL stored function that can be used to calculate the completion statuses of request set stages. Mainly used by standard oracle interfaces. Java Concurrent Program – Used for program written in Java. Author : Amit R Tiwari 6/19/2012 61 . Spawned – used for c or pro*c Program. Oracle doesn‟t recommend use of this executable type. Multi-Language function – execution file is an MLS function that supports running concurrent program in multiple languages. Java Stored Procedure – The execution file is a Java stored procedure. It will get executed in the same fashion as you are running on SQL Plus.used to run the anonymous PL/SQL blocks.

Make this concurrent program accesible to selected users via their responsibility.Answer: Broadly speaking there are three steps when developing a concurrent program in Oracle Apps  Step 1.  Author : Amit R Tiwari 6/19/2012 62 . Provide a handle to the executable by means of defining a concurrent program Step 3. Make Oracle Apps identify the executable  Step 2.

Make this concurrent program accesible to selected users via their responsibility. Step 1. Provide a handle to the executable by means of defining a Concurrent Program. Concurrent program executable is defined to register a script or a procedure for its usage within oracle apps. The request group is either associated with a responsibility or is passed in as a parameter to the function request form function.  Step 2. We need to define a concurrent program and attach that to the executable defined in above step. We do this by adding the concurrent program to something called as request group.  Step 3. Make Oracle Apps identify the executable In Oracle Apps we have something called as concurrent program executable. Author : Amit R Tiwari 6/19/2012 63 .

Question: Is value set attached to all the fields that require validations? Answer : NO Question: Then where lies the usage of value sets? Answer: Broadly speaking. Author : Amit R Tiwari 6/19/2012 10 4 . Oracle Apps uses value set to validate that correct data is being entered in the fields in screen. Hence.Question: What is value set? Answer: It is a set of values Question: Why do we need value sets? Answer: We always want a user to enter junk free text into all the fields. value sets are attached to segments in Flexfields.

e. Lets now define a simple value set as described above. SEC. i. IT. This is where value set gets used. the values to this parameter must be restricted to one of the three values. At the time of submission of the concurrent program the user should be able to pick a cost centre from a list. Lets add a parameter named “cost centre”.

You can then define the form so that it allows users to select only those reports or concurrent programs belonging to a request group with an assigned code.  Request Sets A request set is a collection of concurrent programs set up to run in a specified sequence from a single transaction. Any user can create a request set. therefore a parameter value needs to be entered only once for multiple programs. Additionally. Request sets can also have run and/or print options. You use request groups to implement security at the responsibility level. Any user of a responsibility has access to the reports in that responsibility‟s request security group. which apply to everymember of the set. you can define a request group to have an access code. in which case they are referred to as request security groups.

Question: But where is it used, any examples of its usages? Answer: Let us say that there is a table for employees, and this table named PER_PEOPLE_F & has following columns ---FIRST_NAME LAST_NAME DATE_OF_BIRTH GENDER Question: Will the gender column in above table hold the value of M or F or U?

Question: hmmm...so are lookups used to save the bytes space on database machine? Answer: Noooo. Imagine a situation as below a. There are 30,000 records in people table of which 2000 records have gender value = U. In the screen, their Gender is being displayed as "Unknown". Now let‟s say you want this to be changed to "Undisclosed". To implement this change, all you have to do is to change the meaning of the lookup codes for lookup type GENDER. Hence it will look like Code Meaning ------ ------------M Male F Female U Undisclosed

Here lies the beauty of lookups, you do not need to modify 2000 odd records in this case.
