    Roles and Privileges that grant access to Scheduled Processes
    Roles and Privileges that grant access to Scheduled Processes

    Hi Community,

    Is it possible or is there a report which shows which Privilege/ Duty role grants access to specific ESS Jobs or Scheduled Processes.

    We are trying to customise a role which prevents access to specific Scheduled Processes 





    • Kishore Padala

      Privilege Name : Manage Scheduled Processes

      which will allow management of Scheduled Processes which is inherited from Employee role.
    • Kishore Padala

      You can create a new custom role and assign the privilege code : "FND_MANAGE_SCHEDULED_PROCESSES_PRIV" to the custom role and assign it to user in order to get the access for the schedule process.

      Hi Kishore,


      Thanks for that, I am trying to identify what privilege gives the user access to run a specific schedule process so that i can remove this from the users current access.

        There is no mapping of privileges to processes but you should be able to search the privilege associated with a process. For example, Run Retrieve latest LDAP requests will give access to Retrieve latest LDAP requests. Also, to be able to see the processes submitted by other users you need to create ESS monitor role and ESS Admin roles accordingly.

      Usually the privilege name starts with Run and ends with process and in most cases, the name would be similar to the ESS process name

      Hi Kunal

      Right now there is no way report showing which users/roles can access which ESS jobs

      Hi Kunal,

      in general the Metadataname of a scheduled process corresponds to a part of the code value from the resources table (ASE_PERMISSION_B).

      So if you know the metadata name of the process you would like to secure (by showing the column of the metadata name in the scheduled processes page), you can use below query to relate back to the privileges granting access to a scheduled process.

      You can use the security console to retrieve which roles already have this privilege included.

      So for example, if I want to know which privileges grant access to run the schedule process "Apply Receipts Using Automatch", the Metadata name of this process is "AutomatchMasterEss"

      Using below query:

      ASE_PRIVILEGE_TL aprtl
      ,ASE_PRIVILEGE_B aprb
      where 1=1
      and apb.code like '%AutomatchMasterEss%'
      and apb.privilege_id = aprb.privilege_id
      and apb.privilege_id = aprtl.privilege_id
      and aprtl.language = 'US'

      ... tells me the following privileges give access:

      - Submit AutoMatch Process

      - Import Receivables Receipt through Lockbox


      Please let me know if this works for you


      Kind regards,
