Oracle User Management (UMX) enables organizations to define administrative functions and manage users based on specific requirements such as job role or geographic location.

A Role in UMX schema can be best understood as a job function within the context of an organization with associated semantics regarding the authority and responsibility conferred on the user assigned to the role .

Typical characteristics of Role are – Navigation menus and Access permissions can be separate, and Roles are hierarchical. Because of which responsibilities can be shared with multiple roles and Roles can be built on top of each other, with minimal effort.

Oracle Role Based Access Control (RBAC) and Data Security enables permission assignments to secure a subset of data on the database objects such as vendors, projects, customers, application users etc which can be easily done by creating data security policies .

Typically if you combine all key component, the best it can be described as fig below:

EBS Security UMX

Delegated and Local administrators can be given administrative privileges with a subset of users and people to manage. They can be given different set of administrator privileges. The delegated administrator privileges can be implemented by selecting the Role to which it can be assigned.

You can Navigate the security Wizard as :

Run Wizard (I) of “User Management: Security Administration Setup” -> User Administration (T) -> Add More Rows (B).

The User Management: Security Administration Setup wizard is a security function that defines the administration privileges for administrators that assign/revoke user accounts and roles.

This wizard has 3 sub-tabs:

  • User Administration,
  • Organization Administration
  • and Role Administration

UMX also comes with pre-defined Self-service Registration tasks for users to request new accounts and additional access to the system.

Last but the least, there is Proxy user functionality available in R12 that provides a user with the ability to delegate his/her functions to individuals, to act on behalf of the delegator. How this sounds :)
