This appendix covers the following topics:
During implementation, set a value for each Oracle Financials profile option to specify how Oracle Financials controls access to and processes data.
You may also have additional user profile options on your system that are specific to other applications.
Generally, your system administrator sets and updates profile values.
See: Setting User Profile Options, Oracle Applications System Administrator's Guide - Maintenance
You can govern the behavior of many of your forms using user profile options. Profile options can be set at the following levels:
Site: This is the lowest profile level. Site level profile option values affect the way all applications run at a given site.
Application: These profile option values affect the way a given application runs.
Responsibility: These profile option values affect the way applications run for all users of a given responsibility.
User: These profile option values affect the way applications run for a specific application user. The values you enter for options at the User level supersede the values that your system administrator has entered for you for these options.
The values that you enter for these options at the user level supersede the preset values that your system administrator has entered for you for these options.
The table below indicates whether you (the "User") can view or update the profile option and at which System Administrator levels the profile options can be updated: at the user, responsibility, application, or site levels.
A "Required" profile option requires you to provide a value. An "Optional" profile option already provides a default value, so you only need to change it if you don't want to accept the default. In the following table, the column User Access applies to any user without system administrator privileges. The next columns, System Admin Access: User, System Admin Access: Resp, System Admin Access: App, and System Admin Access: Site, refer to a user with System Administrator privileges.
The tables in this section provide profile option information as follows:
The Default column displays either the default profile option value in italics, or No Default if none exists.
The User Access column indicates whether you can view or update the profile option.
The System Administration: Site, Application, Responsibility, and User columns indicate at which levels the system administrator can update these profile options.
The key for each table is:
Update: You can update the profile option.
View Only: You can view the profile option but cannot change it.
No Access: You cannot view or change the profile option.
|Profile Option||Default||User Access||System Administration: Site||System Administration: Application||System Administration: Responsibility||System Administration: User|
|Default Country||United States||Update||Update||Update||Update||Update|
|HZ: Generate Party Number||Yes||Update||Update||Update||Update||Update|
|LE: Change effectivity||No default||Update||Update||Update||Update||Update|
|LE: Generate Legal Entity Identifier||No default||Update||Update||Update||Update||Update|
This profile option determines the default value for the territory in the Create Legal Entity page.
This profile option determines whether the organization number is generated automatically or entered manually.
If the profile option is set to Yes, the organization number is generated automatically and the field is not displayed. If the profile option is set to No, the organization number must be entered manually and the main establishment’s organization number is the legal entity organization number and ETB (establishment). For example, if the legal entity organization number entered is 12536, the establishment’s organization number will be 12536ETB.
Use this profile option to define whether the Change Effectivity region must be available on the Update Legal Entities/Establishments Registration pages. If you set this profile option to Yes, the Change Effectivity region is available. See: Updating Legal Entities, Oracle Financials Implementation Guide and Updating Establishments, Oracle Financials Implementation Guide
Use the LE: Generate Legal Entity Identifier profile option to set the Legal Entity Configurator to automatically generate the legal entity identifier. If you set this profile option to Yes, the legal entity identifier is generated automatically based on the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) code of the country of registration, plus the registration number of the identifying jurisdiction, which qualifies an entity to be a legal entity in that particular territory. If you set it to No, you must enter the legal entity identifier manually. The default is No.
ISO Country Code: SG
Registration Number of the Identifying Jurisdiction (RCN Number): 23231 (user enterable field)
If the profile option is set to Yes, the legal entity identifier will be SG23231, otherwise you are required to enter the legal entity identifier manually. If you enter an identifier that is not unique, an error message is displayed.
