Profile Options in Oracle Application Object Library

Profile Options in Oracle Application Object Library

This section lists profile options in Oracle Application Object Library. These profile options are organized according to their functional area and are available to every product in Oracle E-Business Suite. For each profile option, we give a brief overview of how Oracle Application Object Library uses the profile's setting.

Unless otherwise noted, a profile option uses the Security hierarchy type.

A table is provided for most profile options that lists the access levels for the profile option (at which levels the system administrator can set the profile option). For Security profile options, there are four possible levels at which system administrators can view and update a profile option value: site, application, responsibility, and user. This table lists whether the profile option's value is visible at each of these levels, and whether it is updatable at each level.

Note: For information on profile options related to Oracle Application Framework, see My Oracle Support Knowledge Document 1087332.1, Oracle Application Framework Release Notes, Release 12.1.3.

Socket Listener Port

This profile option defines the port number used by the Forms Client Controller.

The default value for this profile option is '6945'.

The E-Business Suite Home page uses the Socket Listener Port profile for launching forms from Framework HTML sessions. With this architecture, a user navigating through different forms/responsibilities in a Framework session will reuse the same Oracle Forms session instead of opening multiple ones. So a user will never have more than one Forms session open on his/her PC at any given time, for a given database.

It is possible to have multiple Oracle Forms sessions open where each is connected to a different database, but the Socket Listener Port profile must be set to a different value beforehand on each database. For example, set it to 6945 on database A, 6946 on database B, and 6947 on database C. This profile option must be set at the site level in advance of any users attempting to use this functionality, as it cannot be set on a per-user basis.

Document Sequencing

The internal name for this profile category is FND_DOC_SEQ.

Sequential Numbering

Sequential Numbering assigns numbers to documents created by forms in Oracle financial products. For example, when you are in a form that creates invoices, each invoice document can be numbered sequentially.

Sequential numbering provides a method of checking whether documents have been posted or lost. Not all forms within an application may be selected to support sequential numbering.

Sequential Numbering has the following profile option settings:

Variable Description
Always Used You may not enter a document if no sequence exists for it.
Not Used You may always enter a document.
Partially Used You will be warned, but not prevented from entering a document, when no sequence exists.

Users can see this profile option, but they cannot update it.

This profile option is visible and updatable at the site, application, and responsibility levels.

Note: If you need to control Sequential Numbering for each of your set of books, use the 'Responsibility' level. Otherwise, we recommend that you use either the 'Site' or 'Application' level to set this option.

Flexfields:AutoSkip

You can save keystrokes when entering data in your flexfields by automatically skipping to the next segment as soon as you enter a complete valid value into a segment.

Note: You may still be required to use tab to leave some segments if the valid value for the segment does not have the same number of characters as the segment. For example, if a segment in the flexfield holds values up to 5 characters and a valid value for the segment is 4 characters, AutoSkip will not move you to the next segment.

FND: Native Client Encoding

FND: Native Client Encoding indicates the character set that a client machine uses as its native character set. The value must be one of the Oracle character sets and should correspond to the client native character set. The character set used in a client machine varies depending on language and platform. For example, if a user uses a Windows machine with Japanese, the value should be JA16SJIS. But if a user uses a Solaris machine with Japanese, the value should be JA16EUC. The value is normally set in the user level since each user uses different machine, but it can be set in every level for a default value.

This profile option is used when storing text data. When a user uploads text files as attachments, the current value of FND: Native Client Encoding is stored along with the text data. With the value of this profile option, the server can then convert the text data to another character set as necessary when the text data is downloaded.

ICX: Preferred Currency

This profile determines in which currency a user will see the currency number in the UI.

For example, the source currency number might be stored in database such as 10.00 as US Dollar (USD), but the displayed currency number is based on the currency set in this profile option such as 1,200 as Japanese Yen (JPY). In this multi-currency conversion, USD is source currency and JPY is the profile option value.

This profile option is for currency display purpose especially for self-service type applications.

This profile option is a generic preference that a user can set through the Oracle Application Framework Preferences page. The profile option value is used across Oracle E-Business Suite so that the user sees currency numbers in all applications based on the currency chosen.

The currencies must be set up through the Oracle General Ledger application properly (the following must be set properly: Enabled/Disabled, Active Date and Exchange ratio between currencies). Proper setup ensures that the currency chosen is available in the system, and the currency number can be converted from the source (functional) currency to the target currency (the currency chosen by a user as this profile option value) with the specified exchange ratio. This profile option is tightly linked to GL currency setup. For more information, see: Defining Currencies, Oracle General Ledger User's Guide.
