Overview of Applications DBA Duties

Applications database administration (DBA) combines the efforts of an Oracle Applications System Administrator and an ORACLE database administrator.

The database privileges of Oracle Applications products depend on their ORACLE usernames. ORACLE usernames are created by an ORACLE database administrator, and then are registered as ORACLE usernames by a System Administrator.

ORACLE Usernames

An ORACLE username identifies you as an authorized ORACLE database user.

Note that database usernames and passwords connect to the ORACLE database, while application usernames and passwords access Oracle Applications.

You access the ORACLE database through an Oracle Applications product, and the application's ORACLE username is what grants access privileges.
