Create Noetix Query Users Using GUI

Creating a Noetix query user involves either of the following:

  • Granting an existing database user, Oracle E-Business Suite user, or Oracle E-Business Suite responsibility access to Noetix views.

  • Creating a database user and granting access to NoetixViews.

You can add Noetix query users using the Noetix Query User Maintenance tab of the Security Manager dialog box of the NoetixViews Administrator. Apart from using the dialog box-based method of adding a Noetix query user, you can also use the add user wizard. For adding a Noetix query user using an existing database user, Oracle E-Business Suite user, or Oracle E-Business Suite responsibility, you can use both the methods. However, if you need to create a database user before adding it as a Noetix query user, you can use only the add wizard.

Add a Noetix Query User Using an Existing User

Use the instructions below if you are adding an existing database user or Oracle E-Business Suite user or responsibility as a Noetix query user.

To add a Noetix query user

  1. Click Start > All Programs > NoetixViews > NoetixViews Administrator. The welcome dialog box is displayed.

  2. Log on as the Noetix System Administration User. Click the NoetixViews Administrator toolbar. Alternatively, on the Tools menu, click Security Manager. The Security Manager dialog box appears.

  3. The Noetix Query User Maintenance tab of the Security Manager dialog box displays the names and types of the users who have been added as Noetix query users. By default, you can see the Noetix System Administration User (Type N) and Oracle Administrative Database User (Type O). The dates on which the Noetix query user accounts were created and would expire are indicated. For Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated User (Type A) and Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated Responsibility (Type R) type users, the start and end dates correspond to the start and end dates of the respective Oracle E-Business Suite users and responsibilities. The Noetix Query User Maintenance tab also indicates whether views are optimized for query tools and synonyms for the views are created for the selected users.

    On the Noetix Query User Maintenance tab, click Add. The Add Users Properties dialog box appears.

  4. On the General tab, do the following:

    1. Select a user type in the User Type list. The available options are Database User, Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated User, and Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated Responsibility.

    2. Click Add. If the user type selected is Database User (Type U) or Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated User (Type A), the Add Users dialog box appears.

    3. Note: For Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated User (Type A) type users, the list of users displays only those users who have one or more responsibilities assigned to them in Oracle E-Business Suite.

    If the user type selected is Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated Responsibility (Type R), the Add Responsibilities dialog box appears.

  5. To add a Noetix query user of the Database User (Type U), Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated User (Type A), or Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated Responsibility (Type R) type, follow these steps:

    1. In the Add Users or Add Responsibilities dialog box, specify filters in the Name filter box. If the user type is Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated User (Type A), select a responsibility in the Responsibility filter list.

      Click Search. If the list of available users or responsibilities takes a long time to load, click Cancel search, and repeat the search with better filter criteria.

      From the User Name or Responsibility Name list, select the required user names or responsibilities by selecting the corresponding check boxes. If you want to select all user names or responsibilities, click Select All. If you want to clear the selection, click Deselect All. The number of users or responsibilities selected is displayed at the bottom of the dialog box.

      Note: If the user names or responsibilities that you want to select are not listed in the list, close the dialog box. On the General tab, click Refresh. A message appears stating that the list of user names or responsibilities is updated.

    2. Click OK to add the users and return to the General tab. The selected users or responsibilities are displayed in the Names list. Also, the number of users or responsibilities selected is displayed beneath the Names list.

      Important: If the names of database users selected for adding as Noetix query users contain lower-case or mixed-case letters and special characters that are not supported by Oracle Database, the names should be provided within double quotation marks when the corresponding users log on to Oracle Discoverer Desktop.

    3. In the Language list, click a language used by NoetixViews. If you select <Default Noetix Language Processing>, the language associated with the current environment will be set as the default language for the selected Noetix query users. If that language is not defined in Oracle E-Business Suite, the language that was chosen during Pregeneration Considerations will be set as the default language.

    4. (Optional) Select the Create Query Tool Optimizing Views check box, which is available only for Database User (Type U) type users. Selecting this check box at the time of creating a Database User type Noetix query user account enhances the performance of reports that are created in the reporting tools (for example, Noetix Platform, Microsoft Access, or Crystal Reports) that query directly from the database rather than their own meta-layers.

      Note: Reporting tools (for example, Oracle Discoverer’s End User Layer (EUL), SAP BusinessObjects’ Universe, or IBM Cognos' Catalog) that access their own meta-layers do not benefit from this option. Therefore, do not select this check box while using any reporting tool that accesses its own meta-layer.

    5. The Create Synonyms check box is available only for Database User (Type U) type users and it is selected by default. Clear this check box if the synonyms are not to be created. However, it is recommended to keep this check box always selected.

      Note: Do not select the Create Query Tool Optimizing Views and Create Synonyms check boxes if the Noetix query users of the Database User type also own Oracle E-Business Suite tables. If you do so, you may encounter problems while assigning Noetix roles to the users.

      If you click OK on this tab without navigating to the Roles tab and assigning roles to the user, a confirmation message appears prompting you whether to create Noetix query user accounts without assigning any roles to them. Click Yes if you want to proceed. Click No if you want to assign roles and row-level security to the selected users or responsibilities.

  6. Use the Business Group tab to control access to data in global Noetix views for Oracle Advanced Benefits, Oracle Human Resources, Oracle Payroll, and Oracle Time and Labor based on business groups for a Noetix query user. For information, see Manage Access to Data Based on Business Groups.
  7. Use the Ledger tab (for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 and later) or Set of Books tab (for Oracle
    E-Business Suite versions prior to Release 12) to do one or more of the following to control access to data in the global form of Noetix views for Oracle Assets and Oracle General Ledger based on ledgers/sets of books for a Noetix query user, or to control access to data in the standard, Cross Operations Extension (XOP), and global forms of Noetix views for Oracle U.S. Federal Financials based on ledgers/sets of books for a Noetix query user. For information, see Manage Access to Data Based on Ledgers/Sets of Books.

  8. Use the Operating Unit tab to control access to data in global Noetix views for Oracle Install Base, Oracle Order Management, Oracle Payables, Oracle Projects, Oracle Purchasing, Oracle Receivables, and Oracle Service Contracts based on operating units for a Noetix query user. For information, see Manage Access to Data Based on Operating Units.

  9. Use the Inventory Organization tab to control access to data in global Noetix views for Oracle Bills of Material, Oracle Cost Management, Oracle Enterprise Asset Management, Oracle Inventory, Oracle Master Scheduling/MRP, Oracle Quality, and Oracle Work in Process based on the inventory organizations for a Noetix query user. For information, see Manage Access to Data Based on Inventory Organizations.

  10. Use the Service Request tab to control access to data in Noetix views for Oracle Depot Repair, Oracle Field Service, and Oracle TeleService based on the service request types for a Noetix query user. For information, see Manage Access to Data Based on Service Requests.

  11. Use the Security Rules tab to control the access to accounting data corresponding to a ledger/set of books in the NoetixViews for General Ledger based on the Accounting Flexfield security rules assigned to a Noetix query user. For information, see Manage Access to Data Based on Security Rules.

  12. Use the Roles tab to assign roles to the Noetix query user. For information, see Manage Access to Data Based on Roles.

  13. Click OK on the Add Users Properties or <Noetix query user> Properties dialog box. You return to the Noetix Query User Maintenance tab of the Security Manager dialog box.

  14. (Optional) Configure default flexfield security rules settings for the new Noetix query users to be created or for both the new and existing Noetix query users for the global form of the views. The default flexfield security rules settings can be configured for only the Noetix query users of the Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated User (Type A) and Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated Responsibility (Type R) types. For information on how to configure default flexfield security rules settings, see Configure Default Flexfield Security Rules Settings in the “NoetixViews for Oracle General Ledger” section in “Module-Specific Information”.

  15. Click OK on the Security Manager dialog box to save the changes to the database.

    Note: The Regenerate synonym scripts check box on the Noetix Query User Maintenance tab regenerates the synonym scripts that are used for creating synonyms for Noetix query users of the Database User (Type U) type. By default, this check box is selected. Keep this check box selected if you are working in multiple environments (for example, generating views in a UNIX environment and maintaining query users in a Microsoft Windows environment).

Manage Access to Data Based on Business Groups

The Business Group tab has options to control access to data in global Noetix views for Oracle Advanced Benefits, Oracle Human Resources, Oracle Payroll, and Oracle Time and Labor based on business groups for a Noetix query user.

Use the Business Group tab on the Add Users Properties dialog box of the NoetixViews Administrator to control access to data in the Oracle Human Resources Management System (HRMS) for a Noetix query user. For more information about controlling access to HRMS data and the views for which secured or customizable access is available, see About Access to Human Resources Data in “Module-Specific Information.”

The Business Group tab will be available only if:

  • You have purchased the global form of Noetix views for at least one of the following Oracle E-Business Suite modules:

  • Human Resources,

  • Payroll

  • Advanced Benefits

  • Time and Labor

You are not modifying Oracle Administrative Database User (Type O) type user.

Important: When assigning row-level security to Noetix query users using the Business Group tab, the following points should be noted:

  • For allowing Noetix query users to view data from the Noetix views for the selected Oracle application, appropriate roles corresponding to the selected business groups should be assigned to the users.

  • In Oracle Discoverer and NWQ, user authentication based on the roles and row-level security settings similar to Oracle E-Business Suite is supported. For information, see Create Noetix Query Users Using GUI.

  • In Oracle Business Intelligence (Oracle BI), SAP BusinessObjects, and IBM Cognos Business Intelligence (Cognos BI), user authentication based on the roles and row-level security settings is supported for only the Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated User (Type A) type Noetix query users if the query users are mapped to the users registered in these BI tools. For information, see Create Noetix Query Users Using GUI.

To control access to HRMS data

  1. Click an application name in the Application list. Your options are Benefits, HR, Payroll, and Time and Labor. After you select the application, the corresponding settings appear in the Settings for the <application name> application section.

  2. Select or clear the Enforce Oracle HR security profile processing check box. When the check box is selected, the following options for global security profiles are available:

  3. the business group specified by the user's login session: This option is the default for Noetix query users of the Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated User (Type A) and Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated Responsibility (Type R) types. This option ensures that even if the Noetix query user's logon credentials in Oracle E-Business Suite include a global security profile, data is returned for only the business group derived from these credentials. In other words, data is not returned for other business groups that are encompassed by the global security profile. Thus, this option provides the same level of security that is present in Oracle E-Business Suite.

  4. all business groups included in the global security profile: This option ensures that data is returned for business groups encompassed by the Noetix query user's global security profile as long as they are also displayed in the Assigned Business Groups list. This option enables the Noetix query user to access data from multiple business groups through a global view for Advanced Benefits, Human Resources, Payroll, and Time and Labor with the row-level restrictions specified by the global security profile.

  5. Regardless of which option you choose, you still need to ensure that the business groups you want the Noetix query user to access with the row-level restrictions applied in Human Resources are also in the Assigned Business Groups list.

  6. If you do not want to filter data according to the security profiles of the Noetix query user, clear the Enforce Oracle HR security profile processing check box, and proceed with the next step.

  7. The Enforce Oracle HR security profile processing check box is available for Noetix query users of the Database User (Type U) and Noetix System Administration User (Type N) types only if they are also set up as the reporting users for security profiles.

  8. In the Settings for the <application name> application section, select one of the following options:

  9. If business groups have been added in Oracle E-Business Suite, and if you want NoetixViews to detect and process them without running Stage 4, you can use the organization refresh feature. After running the organization refresh process, you must log on anew to the NOETIX SYS schema to see the new organizations in the Assigned Business Groups list.

  10. Derive from Oracle EBS: Click this option to grant access to business groups on the basis of the Noetix query user's security settings in Human Resources. This option is available only if the Noetix query user is of the Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated User (Type A) or Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated Responsibility (Type R) type. This is also the default option for these users.

  11. These business groups will appear in the Assigned Business Groups list and cannot be modified. When the Standard HRMS security model is used, the list is determined by the values of the HR:Business Group profile option for all responsibilities assigned to the Noetix query user. In the case of the Security Groups Enabled security model, the list is determined by the security groups assigned to the Noetix query user of the Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated User (Type A) type. If the Noetix query user is of the Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated Responsibility (Type R) type, the list will be empty. Go to step Click OK on the Add Users Properties or <Noetix query user> Properties dialog box. You return to the Noetix Query User Maintenance tab of the Security Manager dialog box. to save the changes.

  12. If multiple users are selected, the Assigned Business Groups list will display the “<multiple users selected>” text for this option.

  13. Custom: Click this option to grant access to a custom list of business groups. After you have selected this option, the Add button will be available below the Assigned Business Groups list. By default, this option is selected for users of the Noetix System Administration User (Type N) and Database User (Type U) types. Go to step To specify a custom list of business groups, do the following: to proceed with adding business groups.

  14. All: Click this option to grant access to all the business groups defined in Human Resources. The business groups will appear in the Assigned Business Groups list. Go to step Click OK on the Add Users Properties or <Noetix query user> Properties dialog box. You return to the Noetix Query User Maintenance tab of the Security Manager dialog box. to save the changes.

  15. If the data access privileges of the Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated User (Type A) type, Oracle
    E-Business Suite Authenticated Responsibility (Type R) type, and reporting users change in Oracle
    E-Business Suite, click Refresh Security () on the toolbar of the NoetixViews Administrator. For more information, see Create Noetix Query Users Using GUI.

  16. On clicking the Refresh Security button, a message is displayed, stating that the process of refreshing the security may take some time.

To specify a custom list of business groups, do the following:

Click Add. The Add Business Groups dialog box appears with the list of all the business groups that have been defined in Human Resources and that are yet to be added to the Assigned Business Groups list.

For allowing Noetix query users to view data from the Noetix views for the selected Oracle applications and the corresponding organizational units specified in the row-level security tabs, appropriate roles corresponding to the selected applications should be assigned to the users.

Oracle E-Business Suite restricts the number of roles that can be granted to a user. The number varies based on the Oracle Database version. Assigning a user more than the maximum number of roles prevents the user from logging on. Neither Oracle E-Business Suite nor NoetixViews checks this limit; therefore, you need to keep track of how many roles you grant to the user.

In Oracle Discoverer and NWQ user authentication based on the roles and row-level security settings similar to Oracle E-Business Suite is supported. For information, see Create Noetix Query Users Using GUI.

In Oracle Business Intelligence (Oracle BI), SAP BusinessObjects, and IBM Cognos Business Intelligence (Cognos BI), user authentication based on the roles and row-level security settings is supported for only the Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated User (Type A) type Noetix query users if the query users are mapped to the users registered in these BI tools.

Manage Access to Data Based on Business Groups

The Business Group tab has options to control access to data in global Noetix views for Oracle Advanced Benefits, Oracle Human Resources, Oracle Payroll, and Oracle Time and Labor based on business groups for a Noetix query user.

Use the Business Group tab on the Add Users Properties dialog box of the NoetixViews Administrator to control access to data in the Oracle Human Resources Management System (HRMS) for a Noetix query user. For more information about controlling access to HRMS data and the views for which secured or customizable access is available, see About Access to Human Resources Data in “Module-Specific Information.”

The Business Group tab will be available only if:

  • You have purchased the global form of Noetix views for at least one of the following Oracle E-Business Suite modules:

  • Human Resources,

  • Payroll

  • Advanced Benefits

  • Time and Labor

You are not modifying Oracle Administrative Database User (Type O) type user.

Important: When assigning row-level security to Noetix query users using the Business Group tab, the following points should be noted:

  • For allowing Noetix query users to view data from the Noetix views for the selected Oracle application, appropriate roles corresponding to the selected business groups should be assigned to the users.

  • In Oracle Discoverer and NWQ, user authentication based on the roles and row-level security settings similar to Oracle E-Business Suite is supported. For information, see Create Noetix Query Users Using GUI.

  • In Oracle Business Intelligence (Oracle BI), SAP BusinessObjects, and IBM Cognos Business Intelligence (Cognos BI), user authentication based on the roles and row-level security settings is supported for only the Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated User (Type A) type Noetix query users if the query users are mapped to the users registered in these BI tools. For information, see Create Noetix Query Users Using GUI.

To control access to HRMS data

  1. Click an application name in the Application list. Your options are Benefits, HR, Payroll, and Time and Labor. After you select the application, the corresponding settings appear in the Settings for the <application name> application section.

  2. Select or clear the Enforce Oracle HR security profile processing check box. When the check box is selected, the following options for global security profiles are available:

  3. the business group specified by the user's login session: This option is the default for Noetix query users of the Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated User (Type A) and Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated Responsibility (Type R) types. This option ensures that even if the Noetix query user's logon credentials in Oracle E-Business Suite include a global security profile, data is returned for only the business group derived from these credentials. In other words, data is not returned for other business groups that are encompassed by the global security profile. Thus, this option provides the same level of security that is present in Oracle E-Business Suite.

  4. all business groups included in the global security profile: This option ensures that data is returned for business groups encompassed by the Noetix query user's global security profile as long as they are also displayed in the Assigned Business Groups list. This option enables the Noetix query user to access data from multiple business groups through a global view for Advanced Benefits, Human Resources, Payroll, and Time and Labor with the row-level restrictions specified by the global security profile.

  5. Regardless of which option you choose, you still need to ensure that the business groups you want the Noetix query user to access with the row-level restrictions applied in Human Resources are also in the Assigned Business Groups list.

  6. If you do not want to filter data according to the security profiles of the Noetix query user, clear the Enforce Oracle HR security profile processing check box, and proceed with the next step.

  7. The Enforce Oracle HR security profile processing check box is available for Noetix query users of the Database User (Type U) and Noetix System Administration User (Type N) types only if they are also set up as the reporting users for security profiles.

  8. In the Settings for the <application name> application section, select one of the following options:

  9. If business groups have been added in Oracle E-Business Suite, and if you want NoetixViews to detect and process them without running Stage 4, you can use the organization refresh feature. After running the organization refresh process, you must log on anew to the NOETIX SYS schema to see the new organizations in the Assigned Business Groups list.

  10. Derive from Oracle EBS: Click this option to grant access to business groups on the basis of the Noetix query user's security settings in Human Resources. This option is available only if the Noetix query user is of the Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated User (Type A) or Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated Responsibility (Type R) type. This is also the default option for these users.

  11. These business groups will appear in the Assigned Business Groups list and cannot be modified. When the Standard HRMS security model is used, the list is determined by the values of the HR:Business Group profile option for all responsibilities assigned to the Noetix query user. In the case of the Security Groups Enabled security model, the list is determined by the security groups assigned to the Noetix query user of the Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated User (Type A) type. If the Noetix query user is of the Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated Responsibility (Type R) type, the list will be empty. Go to step Click OK on the Add Users Properties or <Noetix query user> Properties dialog box. You return to the Noetix Query User Maintenance tab of the Security Manager dialog box. to save the changes.

  12. If multiple users are selected, the Assigned Business Groups list will display the “<multiple users selected>” text for this option.

Manage Access to Data Based on Roles

The Roles tab has options to assign roles to the Noetix query user.

By default, all role labels appear as selected on the Noetix Role Labels list. The following columns are available:

Role Label Name: The label or description for the role. Role labels are logical groups of related roles that may have different organizational units or role types. They help you in easily finding the required roles and granting them to the user.

Granted Roles: The number of roles granted to the user for the corresponding role label.

Application: The name of the module to which the role belongs, for example, General Ledger (Oracle General Ledger) and Payables (Oracle Payables).

Application ID: The module ID in Oracle E-Business Suite.

You can select a role label to add the corresponding roles or select multiple role labels. To select multiple role labels, press CTRL, and click the role labels.

When assigning roles to Noetix query users using the Roles tab, the following points should be noted:

For allowing Noetix query users to view data from the Noetix views for the selected Oracle applications and the corresponding organizational units specified in the row-level security tabs, appropriate roles corresponding to the selected applications should be assigned to the users.

Oracle E-Business Suite restricts the number of roles that can be granted to a user. The number varies based on the Oracle Database version. Assigning a user more than the maximum number of roles prevents the user from logging on. Neither Oracle E-Business Suite nor NoetixViews checks this limit; therefore, you need to keep track of how many roles you grant to the user.

In Oracle Discoverer and NWQ user authentication based on the roles and row-level security settings similar to Oracle E-Business Suite is supported. For information, see Create Noetix Query Users Using GUI.

In Oracle Business Intelligence (Oracle BI), SAP BusinessObjects, and IBM Cognos Business Intelligence (Cognos BI), user authentication based on the roles and row-level security settings is supported for only the Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated User (Type A) type Noetix query users if the query users are mapped to the users registered in these BI tools. For information, see Create Noetix Query Users Using GUI.

To add roles

On the Roles tab, select the required role labels from the Noetix Role Labels list.

Click Add. The Add Noetix Roles dialog box is displayed. The roles displayed in this dialog box correspond to the selected role labels on the Noetix Role Labels list and are yet to be assigned to the Noetix query user.

The following are the columns in the Add Noetix Roles dialog box:

Role Name: The name of the role, as edited during Stage 4.

Role Type: The type of the role, whether it is a standard, Cross Operations Extension (XOP), or global role.

Application Label: The name of the module for which the role has been created, for example, GL (General Ledger) and HR (Oracle Human Resources).

Description: The description of the role.

Role Label: The role label corresponding to the role.

Operating Unit: The operating unit with which the role is associated.

Inventory Organization: The inventory organization with which the role is associated.

Ledger/Set of Books: The ledger/set of books with which the role has been created.

Business Group: The business group for which the role has been created.

Chart of Accounts: The chart of accounts with which the role is associated.

Master Organization: The name of the item master organization with which the role is associated.

You need to scroll to the right to see all the information in a row. The width of columns in the list can be adjusted to see more if required. To adjust the width of columns in the list, select the line between columns in the header, and drag it to the required position. Click a column title to sort the roles by the entity represented by the column. Also, you can resize the height and width of the dialog box by dragging the sides of the dialog box.

To assign a role to the Noetix query user, select the corresponding check box. To select all the roles, click Select All. To clear the selection, click Deselect All.

Click OK. The selected roles will be displayed in the Granted Noetix Roles list of the Roles tab. You can click Remove selected to remove the selected roles or Remove all to remove the roles granted to the user for all role labels.

Be careful while assigning Noetix roles that pertain to Oracle Human Resources Management System (HRMS) to Noetix query users of the Database User (Type U) or Noetix System Administration User (Type N) types. These users do not have a security profile associated with their database user accounts, unless they are defined as reporting users in Human Resources for the required security profiles. Therefore, confidential data that is secured in HRMS through security profiles may be exposed through standard or global Noetix views to these query users if they are not also set up as reporting users.

Create Noetix Query Users Using Add Wizard

Use the instructions provided in this section to create a Noetix query user using the Define New Noetix Query User Wizard. You can also use this wizard for creating a database user before adding it as a Noetix query user. You can create only database users using the wizard.

To create a Noetix query user

Click Start > All Programs > NoetixViews > NoetixViews Administrator. The welcome dialog box is displayed.

Log on as the Noetix System Administration User.

Click on the NoetixViews Administrator toolbar. Alternatively, on the Tools menu, click Security Manager. The Security Manager dialog box appears. The Noetix Query User Maintenance tab of the Security Manager dialog box displays the names and types of the users who have been added as Noetix query users. By default, you can see the Noetix System Administration User and Oracle Administrative Database User. The dates on which the Noetix query user accounts were created and would expire are indicated. For Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated User (Type A) and Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated Responsibility (Type R) type users, the start and end dates correspond to the start and end dates of the respective Oracle E-Business Suite users and responsibilities. The Noetix Query User Maintenance tab also indicates whether views are optimized for query tools and synonyms for the views are created for the selected users.

On the Noetix Query User Maintenance tab, click Add Wizard. The Define New Noetix Query User Wizard dialog box appears.

On the Start page, click Next to start the wizard. The User Creation Options page appears.

Do one of the following:

Click Create New User Account to create a database user, and then add the database user as a Noetix query user. You will need DBA privileges to create this account. Click Next to continue.

Click Select Existing User Account if the Noetix query user is to be set up for an existing database user, Oracle E-Business Suite user, or Oracle E-Business Suite responsibility. In this case, the user has already been created and needs to be added as a Noetix query user. Click Next, and proceed to stepIf you have clicked the Select Existing User Account option in step Do one of the following:, the Choose Usersor Responsibilities page appears. This page allows you to select a user type and select existing users corresponding to the user type that should be added as Noetix query users. to select the user.

If you have clicked the Create New User Account option in the previous step, the DBA Account page appears.

The user must exist on the same instance as your Noetix System Administration User account; therefore, the Transparent Network Substrate (TNS) name is already filled in for you.

Type the name and password of a user with DBA privileges. The user must exist on the same instance as your Noetix System Administration User account; therefore, the Transparent Network Substrate (TNS) name is already filled in for you. Provide the information, and click Next. The Create User page appears.

Provide the user name and password of the database user that you want to create on the Create User page. A dialog box prompts you to confirm the new password. After providing the user name and password, choose a default and temporary tablespace for this database user schema. Click Next. After the database user is successfully created, the User Options page appears. Proceed to step The User Options page allows you to specify the following settings:.

The user name must start with a letter; must not contain double quotation marks (") or single quotation marks ('); cannot exceed 30 bytes. Also, use only uppercase letters (A-Z) for the user name. Diacritical marks and characters for Western European languages can also be typed.

If you have clicked the Select Existing User Account option in step Do one of the following:, the Choose Usersor Responsibilities page appears. This page allows you to select a user type and select existing users corresponding to the user type that should be added as Noetix query users.

To select a user type and users corresponding to the selected user type, follow these steps:

In the User Type list, click a user type. The options available are Database User, Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated User, and Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated Responsibility.

Click Add. If the user type selected is Database User (Type U) or Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated User (Type A), the Add Users dialog box appears. If the user type selected is Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated Responsibility (Type R), the Add Responsibilities dialog box appears.

For Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated User (Type A) type users, the list of users displays only those users who have one or more responsibilities assigned to them in Oracle E-Business Suite.

In the Add Users or Add Responsibilities dialog box, specify filters in the Name filter box. If the user type is Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated User (Type A), select a responsibility in the Responsibility filter list.

Click Search. If the list of available users or responsibilities takes a long time to load, click Cancel search, and repeat the search with better filter criteria.

From the User Name or Responsibility Name list, select the required user names or responsibilities by selecting the corresponding check boxes. If you want to select all user names or responsibilities, click Select All. If you want to clear the selection of users, click Deselect All. The number of users or responsibilities selected is displayed at the bottom of the dialog box.

If the names of database users selected for adding as Noetix query users contain lower-case or mixed-case letters and special characters that are not supported by Oracle Database, the names should be provided within double quotation marks when the corresponding users log on to Oracle Discoverer Desktop.

Click Next. The User Options page appears.

The User Options page allows you to specify the following settings:

In the Language list, click the language used by NoetixViews. If you select <Default Noetix Language Processing>, the language associated with the current environment will be set as the default language for this Noetix query user. If that language is not defined in Oracle E-Business Suite, the language that was chosen during Pregeneration Considerations will be set as the default language.

Select the Create Query Tool Optimizing Views check box, which is available only for Database User (Type U) type users. Selecting this check box at the time of creating a Database User type user enhances the performance of reporting tools (for example, Noetix Platform, Microsoft Access, or Crystal Reports) that query directly from the database rather than their own meta-layers.

Reporting tools (for example, Oracle Discoverer’s End User Layer (EUL), SAP BusinessObjects’ Universe, or IBM Cognos' Catalog) that access their own meta-layers do not benefit from this option. Therefore, do not select this check box while using any reporting tool that accesses its own meta-layer.

Select the Create Synonyms check box to create synonyms for views that are granted to Database User (Type U) type users. This option creates synonyms for each role granted to the Noetix query users. The Create Synonyms check box is available only for Database User (Type U) type users and it is selected by default. Clear this check box if the synonyms are not to be created. However, it is recommended to keep this check box always selected.

Do not select the Create Query Tool Optimizing Views and Create Synonyms check boxes if the Noetix query users of the Database User type also own Oracle E-Business Suite tables. If you do so, you may encounter problems while assigning Noetix roles to the users.

Click Next. The Choose Security Pages page appears.

The Choose Security Pages page allows you to define custom security settings to the selected users or responsibilities who are to be added as Noetix query users. The following settings are available in this page:

Click Accept the default settings and go to the Roles page if you want to apply the default custom security settings to the selected users or responsibilities and go to the Roles page.

Click Choose pages to view if you want to define the custom security settings for the selected users and responsibilities. After selecting this option, in the list, select the check boxes corresponding to the custom security configuration pages that you want to display in the wizard. The list also displays the default security that is configured for each custom security page based on the query user type corresponding to the selected users or responsibilities. The default options available are Business Group, Inventory Organization, Ledger/Set of Books, Operating Unit, Service Request, and Security Rules. The options displayed will vary depending on the NoetixViews modules available in your NoetixViews configuration.

Click Next. If the first option is selected, the Roles page appears. If the second option is selected, the pages appear in the wizard according to the check boxes selected. For more information about how to define security settings for users or responsibilities, see Add a Noetix Query User Using an Existing User.

When the Roles page appears, assign the required roles to the selected users or responsibilities. For more information about assigning roles, see Manage Access to Data Based on Roles in “Add a Noetix Query User Using an Existing User.”

Click Next. The Finish page appears.

Click Finish. You return to the Noetix Query User Maintenance tab. The Noetix query user accounts created corresponding to the selected users or responsibilities are displayed in the Noetix Query Users list.

(Optional) Configure default flexfield security rules settings for the new Noetix query users to be created or for both the new and existing Noetix query users for the global form of the views. The default flexfield security rules settings can be configured for only the Noetix query users of the Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated User (Type A) and Oracle E-Business Suite Authenticated Responsibility (Type R) types. For information on how to configure default flexfield security rules settings, see Configure Default Flexfield Security Rules Settings in the “NoetixViews for Oracle General Ledger” section in “Module-Specific Information”.

Click OK on the Security Manager dialog box to save the changes to the database.

The Regenerate synonym scripts check box on the Noetix Query User Maintenance tab of the Security Manager dialog box allows you to regenerate the synonym scripts that are used for creating synonyms for Noetix query users of the Database User (Type U) type. By default, this check box is selected. Keep this check box selected if you are working in multiple environments (for example, generating views in a UNIX environment and maintaining query users in a Microsoft Windows environment).
