New Whitepaper: Function Security + Role-Based Access Control in Oracle EBS

There are two main ways to implement security in Oracle E-Business Suite: “traditional” Oracle E-Business Suite responsibility-based security (usually referred to as “function security”) and Role-Based Access Control (RBAC).   Since they overlap in functionality, and RBAC incorporates and builds upon responsibility-based security, there is often confusion about how the two security models coexist and interact.

I am pleased to announce the availability of a new whitepaper to help eliminate that confusion:

RBAC vs. Grants

This heavily-illustrated whitepaper discusses the main similarities and differences between the two types of security setups, as well as the objects involved.  It includes the following topics:

  1. Responsibility-based security (Function Security)
  2. Role-Based Access Control
  3. Functions and Permissions
  4. Roles and Grants
  5. Role Hierarchy and Role Inheritance
  6. Using Role Hierarchies to Simplify User Administration
  7. Best Practices for Implementing RBAC and Function Security

This whitepaper is written for Oracle E-Business Suite system administrators, super-users, and implementers.  It applies to Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i, 12.0, and 12.1.

Happy reading!
