Defining Your Validation Table. Implementing Separation of Duties requires minimizing the possibility that users could modify data across application functions where the users should not normally have access. Plan your flexfield carefully. If yes, you need to define context-sensitive segments. Because we have just created a grant for the similar Belgium Accounting Flex structure, we can take a shortcut and duplicate that previous grant. In some cases, however, you may have an existing table of the values that would be valid context field values but would not all have corresponding context-sensitive segments for example, a table of countriesand you do not want to duplicate the contents of the existing table by creating a new context field value for each existing value in your table each country name, for example.

Though you do not necessarily define a structure for all the values the reference field could contain, a field that has thousands of possible values may not be a good reference field. Enter a unique context field value xuite known as the flexfield structure name under the Code column. If you have legacy systems, you may need to build a program to import your legacy values into Oracle E-Business Suite tables.

If a context field value is required, your flexfield does not allow you to leave the flexfield window without entering a valid suits. Oracle Assets uses the asset key flexfield to group your assets by non-financial information. Indicate whether a context field value is fof.

If you do not have access to Examine, you must use a SQL query in the database to find the ID value from the value set name. Select Apply in the Update Role page to apply your changes to the role adding the grant to the role.

Values and Value Sets

However, if later you needed to add more structures of context-sensitive segments, you could do so by enabling the context field or a reference field, disabling the default context field value, and defining your new context-sensitive segment structure.

You can record and report on information which is directly related to a specific position rather than to the employee. The possible security types are: If payment processing is e-businews in Australia and the Australian Country Code: The other view is for the particular structure you are defining and freezing.

For example, consider the codes your organization uses to identify general ledger accounts.

Some key flexfields use segment qualifiers to hold extra information about individual key site values. There are three predefined permissions that are used in the permission sets listed above.
