Oracle E-Business Suite Administration

Overview

The Oracle Application Management Pack for Oracle E-Business Suite provides an Administration Dashboard for remotely managing Oracle E-Business Suite targets from an Enterprise Manager Cloud Control console. Jobs can be submitted to start/stop various Oracle E-Business Suite components from the Administration Dashboard. The details and statuses of these jobs can be tracked through standard Enterprise Manager Job screens.

An administrator must have the EM_ALL_ADMINISTRATOR role to run the jobs to start and stop components.

In addition, an administrator must have the "Start and Stop Services" privilege to start and stop services from the Administration Dashboard. See: Privileges and Roles for Managing Oracle E-Business Suite for more information on privileges.

Note: Please ensure that the "Management Services and Repository" is up before using the Administration dashboard. Navigate to console's Setup menu and select Management Services and Repository.
