Managing Components

This chapter covers the following topics:

Managing Components

A component is a set of metadata that provides a list of values for a field in a desktop document. You can assign a component to an interface attribute to use the list of values defined in the component to validate the value in the document field corresponding to that interface attribute. In this way you can enforce your Oracle E-Business Suite application's business rules for the field values within the desktop document. Use the Components List page to view and manage the components defined for your Oracle E-Business Suite installation.

To manage components

  1. Navigate to the Components List page from the Oracle E-Business Suite Navigator by choosing either Desktop Integration Manager: Manage Components or a custom responsibility and menu path specified by your system administrator.

  2. Search for the components you want to display. You can enter the following search criteria:

    To perform a search, you must enter a value that does not begin with a percent sign (%) or underscore (_) for at least one search option.

To define a component

    If you are updating an existing component, then the component properties are populated with previously defined information for the selected component.
