A Adding a Security Override for Package Build

This appendix contains the following topics:

A.1 Understanding Security Overrides for Package Build

Before you build a package, you must have a security administrator add a security override if your system meets both of these conditions:

  • The database that you are using is Oracle, SQL, or IBM DB2 for LUW (Linux, UNIX, Windows).

  • The security server is enabled.

A security override is required so that the package build process can create the metadata repository tables in central objects. To add a security override, a security administrator must first add a system user for the owner of the central objects data source, and then add a security override to the user who will be building packages.

A.2 Adding a System User for Each Data Source

To add a system user for each data source:

Log into a web development client workstation or into the *DEP environment on the deployment server.

  1. Enter P98OWSEC in the Fast Path to access System User Revisions.

  2. On Work with User Security, from the Form menu, select Add System User.

  3. On Work with System Users, in the System User field, enter the appropriate data source owner, for example DV910.

  4. Click the Find button.

  5. If no values are returned, add the data source owner as a system user:

    1. Click the Add button.

    2. On System User Revisions, complete these fields: System User (for example, DV910), Data Source (for example, Central Objects - xxx), Password (for example, DV910 or whatever the database user's password is), and Password Verify.

    3. Click OK.

  6. Repeat these steps for each of your defined data sources, such as Central Objects, Data Dictionary, Object Librarian, and System.

  7. When you are done, the Work with System Users form should look similar to this:

    This graphic is described in surrounding text.
  8. When you are finished adding records, click the Cancel button and the Close button to return to the Work with User Security form.

A.3 Adding a Security Override for the User Building Packages

To add a security override for the user who will be building packages:

  1. On Work with User Security, enter the User ID for the previously defined data source, such as JDE, and then click the Find button.

  2. From the Form menu, select Add Data Source.

  3. On Add Data Source, complete these fields:

    • User ID

    • Data Source

    • System User

  4. Follow the above steps to add security overrides for each data source, such as Central Objects - xxx, System - xxx, and Data Dictionary - xxx.

  5. Here is an example of how it should look when you are finished:

  6. When you are finished, sign out of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and restart the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne server so these necessary changes will take effect.
