Unknown user AUSER in Batch (FW2.2 and FW4)
By Acshorten-Oracle on Aug 27, 2010
If you install an Oracle Utilities Application Framework V2.2 or Oracle Utilities Application Framework V4 based product and you attempt to execute a batch/background process you may receive the error:
"User AUSER does not exist" or similar.
This is intentional as customer should configure the batch before using it. As part of the installation the only user provided in the product that is active and working is SYSUSER. This user is provided so that you can add other application users and SYSUSER is owned by the Oracle Utilities Application Framework. This means SYSUSER should NOT be used for any execution proceses as it will not have permission to the whole product.
To rectify the error above:
- Create a user you want to execute batch against within the authorization model within the product and authentication repository used at your site
- Specify the user in the submitbatch.properties file in the com.splwg.batch.submitter.userId parameter. This file is located in the etc directory for OUAF V2.2 and the splapp/standalone/config directory for OUAF V4
Essentially before running batch you should change the user to use for the permissions to a valid user for your site. Please do not use SYSUSER as it has mimited permissions and is owned by the Oracle Utilities Application Framework
