User security is controlled at three levels within Oracle Applications:
Functional security, which controls user access to the individual menus and menu options within the system.
Data security, which controls what specific data objects a user can operate on.
Role Based Access Control (RBAC), which allows for the creation of roles, to which responsibilities and permissions can be assigned.
The Oracle ERP adapter supports functional security only. Therefore, the adapter cannot list create, update, or delete Oracle data objects, object instances, or instance sets. Nor does the adapter create or manage role objects, role hierarchies or role categories.
