During installation or upgrading of Oracle Applications, a standard data group is defined, pairing each installed application with an ORACLE username (note: a standard data group is defined 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:
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 a Standard group.
A data group is uniquely identified by its name. You cannot create a data group with a name already in use.
Once saved, data group names cannot be edited.
When you copy a data group, each application, its assigned ORACLE username, and, if present, its Tool ORACLE username and description, appear in this zone automatically. All data groups automatically include an entry for Application Object Library.
Within each data group, an application can be listed only one time.
A Tool ORACLE username can be added to each application-ORACLE username pair within a data group. A Tool ORACLE username identifies an ORACLE account that users can automatically connect to when using an Oracle Tool, for example, SQL*Plus. Users select the Oracle Tools window from the standard Oracle Applications menu.
Attention: The Oracle Tools window may not be available on your desktop platform. The Oracle Tools window is primary for the character mode environment.
When a responsibility is defined, a data group is chosen, and an application within the data group is selected for the responsibility's forms to connect to.
Attention: You cannot select a Tool ORACLE username to associate with Application Object Library. The Application Object Library-ORACLE username pair is inserted into each data group, and cannot be updated or deleted.
Suggestion: You should assign a Tool ORACLE username that is restricted (read-only).
Warning: Modifying data or table structures using an Oracle Tool, for example, SQL*Plus, may damage your data's integrity and is not supported by Oracle.
