Controlling Access to Concurrent Requests
This post discusses the profile option which controls access to concurrent requests used to view reports.
An important security consideration when implementing Oracle E-Business Suite is determining report access privileges. Control over reports generated in Oracle Apps via concurrent requests launched by the concurrent manager can be set via a profile option in System Administration.
According to the Oracle System Administrators User Guide: -
The profile option Concurrent:Report Access Level determines report output file and log file access privileges for your end users. As System Administrator, you can set this profile option to either “User” or “Responsibility.” All users can can review the log and report output files from requests that they submitted.
Setting the Concurrent:Report Access Level option to “Responsibility” at the User level allows that user to review the log and report output files from all requests submitted from the current responsibility. If you set the Concurrent:Report Access Level option to “Responsibility” at the Responsibility level, any user of that responsibility can also view the log and report output files from all requests submitted by any other user of that responsibility. Of course, if you want all users to see each other’s requests (i.e. no security) you can choose “User” at the Site level.
