Submitting a Concurrent Request Outside of Oracle EBS as User Other Than APPS

Posted on by Brent Lowe

Fairly short blurb today but I found it helpful so I thought I would pass it along. I posted a couple of weeks ago on the ability to Submit a Concurrent Request Outside of Oracle EBS. Following in the same vein, I had a requirement to submit a concurrent request as a database user other than apps. This of course involves granting the specific user permissions to run a concurrent request.

I found a note (822225.1) on My Oracle Support that explained the specific grants/synonyms necessary for running fnd_global.apps_initialize as a user other than apps, but unfortunately could not find a similar note for running fnd_request.submit_request().

So, I dug in my heels and started examining the code and came up with the following grants/synonyms that need to be created. Note that these statements also include those grants/synonyms in the note mentioned above and apply to 11.5.10.

As apps you must run the following grants for the database user that needs the ability to run Concurrent Requests.

grant execute on fnd_request to __user__;
grant select on fnd_concurrent_programs_vl to __user__;
grant select on fnd_application_vl to __user__;
grant select on fnd_user to __user__;
grant execute on fnd_global to __user__;
grant select on fnd_responsibility_vl to __user__;
grant execute on fnd_core_log to __user__;

Hope this can help someone, I know that I was looking for it when I started down this path.

  1. Hi Brent,

    Great post! I’m sure someone will find it handy.

    Hi Brent,

    We had this working in 11i for the last few years. Now we are moving to R12 and R12 appears to require some additional grants. Anybody spent the time to figure that out yet?

      Hi Steve, I ran into the same problem and it turned out to be a huge hassle trying to figure everything out. I believe that I did finally get everything that I needed, but I ended up going a different route in the end so I didn’t have to maintain so many grants/synonyms. Instead, I created a package that called fnd_request and installed it as apps. Because of DEFINER rights, whenever the package functions are called, apps is the one that is running fnd_request and already has all of the grants it needs. This is not outside the norm, in fact, Oracle endorses this setup. See Metalink Note 70276.1 section 9c. Hope this helps, I’ll see if I can dig up the grants that I was using as well for R12 before I changed my strategy.
