Creating Menus in Apps

You need to sing in as a sysadmin to create user, responsibilities, menus etc.

Sing in as Sysadmin user name and password.

Insert Your Sysadmin User Name and Password for continue.

Now Select System Administrator Responsibility, shown below.

Select Application Menu
• Now from the Right Panel, Select “Application: Menu” Menu to continue with “Menu” creation, as shown.

• After clicking on “Menu” Option, a java based application will be open on your screen (shown on next page)

Menu screen will looks like this.

A menu is a hierarchical arrangement of functions and menus of functions. Each responsibility has a menu assigned to it. A ”full access” responsibility with a menu that includes all the functions in an application is predefined for each Oracle Applications product. As a System Administrator, you can restrict the functionality a responsibility provides by defining rules to exclude specific functions or menus of functions. In fact, we recommend that you use exclusion rules to customize a responsibility in preference to constructing a new menu hierarchy for that responsibility.

Menu Form:
• • Menu Name:
Choose a name that describes the purpose of the menu. Users do not see this menu name.

User Menu Name:
You use the user menu name when a responsibility calls a menu or when one menu calls another.


• • •

Sequence
Enter a sequence number to specify where a menu entry appears relative to other menu entries in a menu. The default value for this field is the next whole sequence number.

Navigator Prompt
Enter a user–friendly, intuitive prompt your menu displays for this menu entry. You see this menu prompt in the hierarchy list of the Navigator window.

Submenu
Call another menu and allow your user to select menu entries from that menu.

Function
Call a function you wish to include in the menu. A form function (form) appears in the Navigate window and allows access to that form. Other non–form functions (sub functions) allow access to a particular subset of form functionality from this menu.

Description
Descriptions appear in a field at the top of the Navigate window when a menu entry is highlighted.

Standard Menu Form
• • Enter Menu Name, User Menu Name and Description in Menu Block. Then enter the required details as shown in the image.

If all the information is ok then save the window (by pressing “Ctrl + s” or save button)

Notes
• You can not delete Menu once created. But you can revoke the menu completely from the user by revoking responsibility from user. Or your can remove sub-menu from menu by removing grant option. Oracle recommends that to use exclusion rules to customize a responsibility in preference to constructing a new menu hierarchy for that responsibility. For mare information refer “System Admin Guide”
