When you think of adding a new responsibility to an existing E-Business Suite user, does System Administrator come to mind? Visions of going to the Define User form, tabbing down and finding the new responsibility to add? Did you know that you can add responsibilities to a user through Oracle User Management? Let’s step through how this can happen together. Below I have setup a brand new user without any responsibilities.
Further evidence that there are no responsibilities tied to this user is in the screenshot below where I have logged into this new userid – notice there are no responsibilities listed.
Next, let’s login into the Oracle User Management responsibility and query up the new user “BOYWONDER” where we see again that there are no roles nor responsibilities assigned to this user:
Now let’s go find the US Super HRMS Manager responsibility and assign that responsibility to BOYWONDER as follows:
Now let’s re-query up BOYWONDER to see that the US Super HRMS Manager responsibility has been added in Oracle User Management as follows:
Now, let’s switch over to System Administrator and requery up BOYWONDER to see if the responsibility shows there:
As you can see, the responsibility has been added through Oracle User Management just as if it had been added through the System Administrator responsibility. Lastly, let’s log back into BOYWONDER and see if he is now a Super HRMS Manager for the US:
And there you have it – BOYWONDER is now an HRMS super hero in good standing. System Administrator? Who needs it – there’s a new super hero in town!
