Secure Oracle E-Business Suite Ebook

Oracle E-Business Suite Role and Responsibility Access Management Solution.
Security in Oracle E-Business Suite

Oracle E-Business Suite security model can be configured to grant users access based on Responsibilities as well as Roles. In this 17-page document, we provide an overview of the Oracle security model fundamentals, describe best practices for implementing access policies and share some key capabilities in SafePaaS to help you automate user access controls management process for users granted access to Oracle E-Business Suite applications through Roles as well as Responsibilities.

Oracle Responsibilities consist of navigation menus that include sub-menus, functions and programs called “concurrent requests”. Once a user is granted access to one or more Responsibilities, she/he can access all the functions and programs within all the available menus. There are additional security attributes that can limit user access to data and functions. A key drawback of the Responsibility based security model is that it does not support data level security.

Role-based access control (RBAC) fully introduced in Oracle E-Business Suite R12 offers significant security design improvement over the Responsibilities based option by normalizing access to functions and data through user roles rather than only users. RBAC security model improves access security by controlling what a user can do on each function or sets of data under specific condition, e.g. view and edit are actions, and task flows or rows in data tables are resources.
