Profile Options

Profile Options are used to determine the behavior of oracle application forms and programs. There are almost 7000+ profile options that come with a package.

Each profile option can be set at 4 levels

Site

Application

Responsibility

User

Site Level profile option is going to affect all the forms and programs of all the modules.

Application Level Profile options will affect all the forms and programs which are registered with a specific Module.

Responsibility Level profile option will affect all the forms and programs with are associated with a particular responsibility.

User Level profile options will affect all the forms and programs of all the responsibility associated with a particular user.

Note: If we set the profile option at all the 4 levels, user profile option will override responsibility level, responsibility level will override application level and application level will override site level.

Note: A user (User log in) can have access to more than one responsibility.

  1. If the profile option is set at all the 4 levels then user can access the ledger data of ledger defined at user level i.e.GSSTATA INDIA” in all the forms which are defined under a responsibility assigned to the user.(Say U1 can access forms of R1 and R2)
  2. If the profile option is set at responsibility, application and site level then the user can access and view the data of the ledger “GSSTATA CHINA” which is at the responsibility level.
  3. If the profile option is set at application and the site level then the user can access and view the data of the ledger “GSSTATA UK” and all the forms as the profile is set at the application level.
  4. If the profile option is set at Site level then the user can access the data of the ledger “GSSTATA US”.
