Tools that help you design Roles in Fusion Applications
By Elie Wazen on Jul 25, 2012
Role Based Access Control (RBAC) is the basis for Fusion Applications security. Fusion Applications include a reference implementation of RBAC consisting of over 180 Job Roles across its product families. In turn, each of these Job Roles is composed of a collection of role centered privileges known as Duties that grant access to Applications functionality. Fusion Applications customers can start by evaluating these predefined Job Roles and mapping them to roles in use in their enterprise.
In cases where a direct one to one mapping is not possible, customers can create their own custom roles and either aggregate a set of Job Roles ( in cases where Job Roles are too restrictive in the Duties they provide) or add a select subset of Duties from a Job Role (in cases where a Job Role grants more access than is required in the enterprise).
