Oracle EBS R12 – Requests: How to enhance the Concurrent Request Forms

Overview The purpose of this document is to describe some possible enhancements for the EBS Concurrent Requests form in EBS R12.

Content Hint ................................................................................................................................1 Requirements .................................................................................................................2 Part 1: Auto Refresh Functionality ................................................................................3 Part 2: Restart Selected ..................................................................................................3 Part 3: Submit Request or Set ........................................................................................4 Part 4: Changed Column Sizes ......................................................................................4 Implementation Notes....................................................................................................5

Hint
The changes described in this document are treated as “modification”. This means that these changes are not supported by Oracle worldwide support, only Oracle consulting can help you during the implementation. Keep also in mind that you may loose access to such a modified form when you install an EBS standard patch!

By implementing all 4 enhancement requests the user will be able to work faster by minimizing any repeating task in this form. Therefore we have received a customer request to validate possible improvements and come up with a suggestion. 4. It would be excellent if an Auto Refresh functionality can be implemented 2. An easier way to restart a previous process shall be implemented (one click restart) 3. Here are my findings: 1.Requirements The concurrent requests form in EBS release R12 is possibly one of the most frequented forms at all. Volker Eckardt. It would be helpful to divide today’s submit button into two. The column size should be optimized to see more from the executed program name. one for request and another one for request set submission. Oracle Corporation 27/11/2010 .

Part 1: Auto Refresh Functionality Requirement: This functionality is possibly one of the most requested. Restart means here that we copy the request definition completely and submit it again with a new request id. To use it. it takes too long when using it just for an exact copy of an already existing request. This is very helpful because it minimizes the number of executed database queries. Part 2: Restart Selected Although such a restart functionality has been already implemented. A better solution would be if the application could automatically determine a database record change and refresh afterwards. Therefore an additional button has been implemented to allow a very easy restart. Directly another request will be submitted. This means that in max 45 calls will be executed. the user has to enable it again. In EBS standard a user has to refresh this form always manually by clicking the [Refresh data] button or by using [Alt]+[R]. Volker Eckardt. Solution: The proposed solution is the following: We implement a check box and name it “Auto Refresh”. In case there are no running processes to track. If there are still running processes to track. This means that the auto refresh stays on for 2 ¼ minutes only (by using the defaults). In addition to the number of executions you can define how often you want to execute the auto refresh (default every 3rd second). the auto refresh functionality stops immediately. a permanent timer checks and updates the form accordingly. and clicks then the [Restart selected] button. There are two configuration options: the auto refresh can be limited in terms of the number of executions in total (default value is 45). Oracle Corporation 27/11/2010 . afterwards the auto refresh functionality stops. the user just puts the cursor on one of the lines in the request list. In case this check box is selected.

Part 3: Submit Request or Set In a daily work we usually just submit a request. a set is rather rarely used. Oracle Corporation 27/11/2010 . Volker Eckardt. The button to the left starts a single request. Part 4: Changed Column Sizes In this 4th requirement we change the column size to give more space to the ‘Name’ field. If you choose [Submit a request]. We achieve this by using Forms Personalization. the button to the right a request set. you will be directly routed into the New Request form. Therefore it makes sense to have separate buttons for every task.

so if you replace the standard form (FNDRSRUN) with this enhanced version keep in mind that immediately everyone will see and also use it. we have to decide to whom we grant access. where we usually have a strong demand to reschedule and execute a high number of processes. When done this.com/pub/volker-eckardt/0/8a7/430 Volker Eckardt. In my project we are using this enhanced form by now only in the test environments.Implementation Notes Unfortunately we can not achieve all these changes just by using Forms Personalization. Please contact me if you need any further explanation! Oracle Corporation Email: volker.com Linkedin: http://de.linkedin.eckardt@oracle. Oracle Corporation 27/11/2010 . Especially the auto refresh functionality has to be implemented directly into the underlying forms code. In general this form is used in many applications. We suggest that you roll it out first in a test environment. to make sure that the solution is stable and does not have any negative impact to the performance.
