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 DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows database.

  • 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.
