Places the application in administration mode so that access to the application is limited to Service Administrators only.

This command is useful to prevent users from working on the application when Service Administrators are performing administrative operations. The application remains in administration mode until you change it back so that all users can access it.


This command has been deprecated, but not removed from EPM Automate. Oracle recommends that you use the setApplicationAdminMode command instead.

Applies to

Planning, Planning Modules, FreeForm, Financial Consolidation and Close, Tax Reporting, Enterprise Profitability and Cost Management, Strategic Workforce Planning, and Sales Planning.
