Guest Author


Global worklist header is a new feature available from Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2.3 in Skyros look and feel.

  • Worklist
    header icon is the bell icon which is displayed by default in all HTML based pages in the
    global header, the worklist header icon is an alternative to
    including a worklist region in the Oracle E-Business Suite home
    page. Users can select the icon to view a summarized list of recent
    notifications, and then click to view and respond to each notification in the notification
    details page.
  • With
    this feature, users can view the recent notifications from any
    HTML page by default instead of navigating back to homepage and
    checking the homepage worklist for any recent notifications.
  • The
    open notification count is displayed next to worklist header icon
    in the global header and the count gets updated on page reload or
  • On
    click of the worklist header icon, the worklist menu opens up,
    which displays the recent 10 notifications. Each notification
    section shows from user, notification subject link,  sent date and
    due date of the notification.
  • Users
    can navigate to notification details page on click of the
    notification subject link and can review and respond to the
    notification. The subject text is displayed up to 45 characters and on
    hover of the subject link, the full subject text is shown.
  • The
    worklist menu also displays the ‘Go to Full Worklist’ link at the
    bottom and on click of link, user is taken to the advanced worklist
  • The worklist menu can be closed by clicking anywhere outside the menu.
  • If
    the open notification count for the user is zero, then on click
    of the worklist header icon, the worklist menu still opens up and
    displays the message ‘No open notifications found for the user’ along
    with the ‘Go to Full Worklist’ link at the bottom.


worklist header icon is rendered by default, the icon rendering in the
global header can be controlled at user, responsibility, application,
site levels using profile ‘WF_ENABLE_WORKLIST_HEADER’. By setting the
profile value, the worklist header icon can be rendered on/off at
various levels.


  • The worklist header feature is available across all OAF and JTT pages by default from Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2.3
  • It
    is i18n enabled and also supports accessibility features. The opening
    and closing of the worklist menu and the navigation to each notification
    component, full worklist link, navigation to notification details
    page, advanced worklist page from the worklist menu links can be fully
    controlled by keyboard. The navigation with the keyboard is the same as
    in any HTML page. In addition, user can navigate through the
    notifications using key up and key down as well.
