EnterpriseOne (E1) Help Desk Role

Have you tried to create a Help Desk role? You know…one that only has access to the “Administrative Password Revisions” (P98OWSEC|W98OWSECF) application. Well, I’ve been fighting with it, on-and-off, for a couple days now. And, I’ll tell ya, the solution is a little baffling.

In this case we also wanted the Help Desk staff to be able to “FastPath” to the application.

Why was this so hard?

The environments. Why is the non-“J” environment required? I have no idea. I found an entry on JDEList that referred to having 2 roles. One worked just fine and the other didn’t. The only thing that was different between the 2 was the environments. So, I granted all the environments and got it to work. Then started pairing things down.

Here is what we had to do:

  • Application Security to “Run”
    • W98OWSECD (allows them to change their own password)
    • W98OWSECF (allows them to change other’s passwords)
    • W0092B (allows them to lookup UserIDs)
  • Action Security for W98OWSECD & W98OWSECF
  • Solution Explorer Security with “FastPath” access
Task View Change
  • Add the task “5/GH9052” to the root task view used
Role Environments
  • Add both the JDV811 & DV811 environments to the role
Fast Path Entry
  • Product Code: H90
  • UDC: FP
  • ode: PSWD
  • Description 01: User Passwords
  • Description 02: 5/GH9052
  • Special Handling:
  • Hard Coded: N

VCP-310 and 350-001 professionals are best suited to teach the candidates of 640-802 as well as 70-290 and 70-291 series.

E1 Terminology

Speaking the language is key to becoming a knowledgeable Oracle EnterpriseOne (E1) administrator.

So here are a few key terms:

  • CNC – Configurable Network Computing. This term was used by JD Edwards to describe the flexibility of OneWorld’s architecture.
  • Pathcode/Central Objects ? code repository
    • PD811, PY811, DV811, PS811
  • Environment ? Pathcode + Data
    • PD ? Production
    • PY ? Prototype, Test, CRP
    • DV ? Development
    • PS – Pristine
  • Package ? compiled code; collection of C++ DLLs
    • ?Full? – contains all objects in the specified Environment?s Pathcode
    • ?Update? – contains only the objects specified while defining the package
  • eGen ? converting object specifications to serialized objects
  • Serialized objects ? code read by the JAS server to present the User Interface
  • ?Fat-Client? ? EnterpriseOne (E1) Windows Client
  • ESU/ASU ? Electronic Software Update/Application Software Update
    • Object updates provided by Oracle

E1 Upgrade From Tools Release 8.95.P1 to 8.96.xx

Ok, I have been caught a number of different times thinking that a process was going to be “easy” and had it turn into a knock-down, drag-out, 3-week battle to get E1 to do what I wanted it to do. So, when researching what it was going to take to upgrade from Tools Release (TR) 8.95.P1 to 8.96 I figured I would go the extra mile and submit a case to Oracle’s support.

Wow, was I shocked to learn that it was the same process that I have used in the past to upgrade one-offs (ex. 8.95.M1 to 8.95.P1)! Not bad. I’ve done this many times. However, there is one catch, I will have to install IBM Websphere 6.0 and scrap my IBM WAS 5.0. Hey, no problem. I was at Oracle’s Open World last fall and sat through a full day of training for that.

So, now I asked one of our WinTel server guys to create a fresh install of Windows Server 2003 on our VMWare server. Once that is done, I will install IBM WAS 6.0. Then upgrade the deployment server so that I can use both TRs and configure the Enterprise Server to have Pristine run 8.96.xx and start testing.

Oh, if you are not using “Multiple Foundations”, you are definitely making things harder than they have to be. I’ll post a comment about that soon.

Have Fun!

Deleting User Overrides In EnterpriseOne (E1)

Once in a while my power-user wants to delete some User Overrides because they created some that they want everyone to use. Well, the UO app usually works pretty well, until your get some can not be deleted with the normal process. Here is the process that I go through:

1. Open a ?Fat Client? in the environment in which want to delete the UO
2. Fastpath to UO
3. Use the QBE to find the UOs that you would like to delete
4. Highlight them and click delete
5. NOTE: If some of them do not delete and give you an error like ?The object is in an open project?:
* Run a SQL statement similar to the following from the green screen to select the records desired and then delete them:

SELECT * FROM copy811/f98950 WHERE UOUSER ‘*PUBLIC’ and
UOOBNM=’Pxxxx’ and UOFMNM=’WxxxxA’ and UOVERS=’XJDE0016′

When working at home, starting with cheap web hosting is best and hence midphase or powweb are better choices.

Introduction to Oracle EnterpriseOne (E1)

Technically I guess the name should be Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne (E1). How’s that for a name. Anyway, the main system that I work on during the day is EnterpriseOne (E1). It is what my employer uses for their ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning – a fancy name for accounting) system.

It was originally a JD Edwards product called OneWorld (the new version of JDE’s very stable product “World”). Then JD Edwards was purchased by PeopleSoft to try and avert a take-over by Oracle and was named EnterpriseOne (E1) (combining PeopleSoft’s product name, “Enterprise”, with “OneWorld”). However, in the end, Mr. Ellison won the battle to acquire PeopleSoft, which resulted in the name JD Edwards EnterpiseOne.

Ok, enough with the name…

Currently, we have two installations with the following configurations:

Although 70-270 or 646-204 is not a prerequisite in 70-620 or the proceeding advanced exams like 220-601 and 70-649, but eventually one suffers because of ill preparation in SY0-101.
