As you familiarize yourself with security concepts across different parts of the BI stack, there are differences in terminology that is used in the software and documentation.
Enterprise Roles are also referred to as Groups, or Job Roles. For example:
- the term Enterprise Role is used in this guide, and in Oracle Fusion Applications.
- the term Group is used in Oracle WebLogic Server Administration Console and Oracle BI Administration Tool.
This guide uses the term Enterprise Role unless referring to tools that use the term Group or Job Role.
Duty Roles are also referred to as Application Roles. For example:
- the term Duty Role is used in this guide and in Oracle Fusion Applications.
- the term Application Role is used in Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control and Oracle WebLogic Server Administration Console.
This guide uses the term Duty Role unless referring to tools that use the term Application Role.
Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) refers to the Authentication Provider. For example, Oracle WebLogic Server, Oracle Internet Directory (OID), or a proprietary LDAP server and tools.
