Modifying Data Groups

Predefined Standard Data Groups

During installation or upgrade of Oracle Applications, a standard data group is defined that pairs each installed application with an ORACLE username (note: this occurs for each set of books).

You cannot change or delete the predefined values for Application or ORACLE username in a Standard data group. However, you may modify the Tool ORACLE username and description, or add new Application-ORACLE username pairs to the group.

Defining new Data Groups

Since the installation process automatically defines Data Groups for Oracle Applications, you only need to define any additional data groups you wish to utilize.

You can copy a data group and give it a new name, creating a new data group. Each application, its assigned Oracle username, and, if present, its Tool Oracle username and description, are copied to the new data group.

Suggestion: Make a backup copy of your standard Data Group, and do not assign it to a responsibility. That way, if you ever inadvertently connect the wrong Oracle username to an application, or lose track of your applications' configuration, you have an initial configuration you can revert to.

Adding a custom application to a Data Group

If a custom application is developed with Oracle Application Object Library, to include it in a Data Group, you:

Registering an Oracle Username

Registering an Oracle username with Oracle Applications sets up the privileges to the Oracle Application Object Library database tables (such as flexfield tables, menu tables, and so on) that are necessary to successfully use Oracle Applications. See: Overview of Applications DBA Duties.
