The multiple roles feature in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne versions 8.9 and higher provides an excellent facility to create and manage an environment that truly reflects the way your business operates. However, there are a number of technical issues with standard EnterpriseOne that prevent you making the best use of these features:

  • E1 role sequencer causes conflicts
  • E1 row security only works for one role
  • E1 has no accumulated security reports
  • E1 Task Views don’t accumulate

You need a tool-kit that addresses these issues – ALLOut CombiRoles

Architecture – uses standard EnterpriseOne file structures to enable multiple roles within roles and automatic conflict resolution.

Roles within Roles – Combines small roles (maybe for tasks) and links them together into SuperRoles.  Think of it as “task level security”.

Multiple Groups per User - for Xe/ERP8

Row Security Accumulator – Identifies overlaps in multiple roles and combines values.  (“A to C” and “B to “D” becomes “A” to D”)

Task View Accumulator - Combines multiple Menu Filters so a user sees one menu structure when they sign on.

Conflict resolution– Identifies conflicts for a user and creates “Y” settings that over-ride the role level security.  A base set of security reports showing the net effect of security settings for users, roles and groups with options to output to .pdf or Excel.  Excellent for conflict resolution!

Benefits of multiple roles

Role based security will reduce the size of your standard security table as much as 80%.  See our Case Study based on the experience of one client who reduced the number of security records from 250,000 to 13,000!
