Training On Demand - Using Oracle Database Vault with Oracle Database 12c

Written by Maria Billings, Senior Principal Curriculum Developer

Do you want to advance your career, but never know beforehand when you might have time for training?

Try Oracle University’s Training On Demand or TOD curriculum. You can watch recorded classroom and hands-on sessions in smaller or larger increments as it fits into your schedule.

For Database Vault

  • Do you sometimes need to prove that you couldn't possibly have seen confidential information, although you are a highly privileged DBA?
  • Did you know that the Oracle Database 12c has a Database Vault option already installed, ready to be enabled, if your organization decides to use it?
  • What is Database Vault?

Database Vault TOD Training is composed of several components, including realms, rule sets, command rules, secure application roles and factors that can be highly customized or simply used out-of-the box.

A realm, for example, is a zone of protection for tables, roles, and packages. A realm protects the objects in it from users exercising system privileges, such as SELECT ANY TABLE. So, any such privileged user must be defined as a realm participant (or have a realm-participating role that is granted to him or her) to access the protected objects.

If you are not a realm participant or owner, you can show that a query of a realm-protected table will result in the "ORA-01031: insufficient privileges" error. In short, you can prove you couldn't have possibly seen the confidential content.

The course "Using Oracle Database Vault with Oracle Database 12c" TOD training goes into all the necessary details to show you:

  1. How to reduce the attack surface for potential security breaches through limiting privileges.
  2. How to perform security analysis and report security vulnerabilities.
  3. How to configure and maintain Database Vault elements.
  4. How to implement best practices, which begins by identifying YOUR security requirements.

You can then see samples of building and documenting security implementations, and you view or discuss sample use cases, such as the workflow of an application DBA, dual key security, dynamic auditing, and so on.

Oracle E-Business 12.2 Training - Support Your Deployment


As enterprises continue to migrate and adopt Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2, we continue to see strong demand for training. Courses are available in both traditional classroom and our popular online Live Virtual Class formats.

Here are some key training opportunities you may want to consider.

Application Administration

System administrators need to understand the concepts and functions  critical to their job role as it pertains to your applications. The following course covers implementing and managing the Oracle E-Business Suite.

Oracle Workflow

Oracle Workflow Manager allows system administrators to define and manage business processes. You can route relevant information to decision makers, automate processes, deliver electronic notifications to users in a given workflow, and monitor your processes as they are implemented.  The following course will teach you how to design, administer, and manage workflow processes.

Oracle Financials

Training for the Oracle E-Business Suite Financial Management is designed to help implementers and end users set up, use, and manage their financial applications.  The following course provides a deep dive into implementation considerations for setting up and using Oracle Subledger Accounting. You'll walk away with the knowledge to create and translate journal entries to the General Ledger.

The next course is for those who need to know how to set up and use Oracle Receivables to manage receivables processing.

Order Management

If you're looking to learn how to perform the steps to setup Oracle Inventory in support of Oracle Order Management, including how to create subinventories, units of measure and items, then you should take the following course.

Inventory Management

Effective inventory management is critical to any successful manufacturing operation. The following course will show you how to setup, define, and perform inventory transactions, while reflecting the logical flow of the processes involved in inventory management.
