Information in this document applies to any platform.


When customers install WebCenter Capture (formerly Oracle Document Capture) there are often questions about what the minimum requirements are to run the software.  It is common for system administrators to try to lock down the machine as much as possible and that is why these questions are normally asked.

*** Our QA/Testing procedures do not include minimum permissions testing.  The questions are answered below to the best of our knowledge.  If there is a complete lock-down of the system, there may be other issues encountered that were not foreseen.  This is not a definitive guide to required permissions for the WebCenter Capture product.


Changed product name from Oracle Document Capture to WebCenter Capture. Refer to Product Name Changes for WebCenter and Former ECM products (<Document 1364544.1>) for more information.
