Purpose
Questions and Answers
 I have defined a security rule and assigned it to my responsibility. Why does it still not work?
 My security rules don't work for the Account Analysis and General Ledger reports in Release 11.0.3.
 When using the intercompany segment, can I have a security rule on the balancing segment (company) without affecting the intercompany segment, since they share the same value set?
 How can I assign different security rules to a responsibility based on the User ID?
 Can I use security rules to control the posting of journal entries?
 When I perform a query, Security rules don't seem to work on all forms, why?
 Can I use Security Rules to prevent users in one organization (in the same set of books) from adding Cross Validation Rules to another organization?
 Every Country has a Global Manager or User Responsibility to access Global SOB but it is supposed to limit users to their own Legal Entities. However, a journal from one country can be posted by a user of another country. How is this possible?
 I forgot to check the security enabled flag for each segment and now it is not able to be updated. How do I correct this?
 I defined a security rule of a parent with children to include the parent and assigned to a responsibility. However it is not working properly: the system allows the account I wanted but doesn't excludes the children of the excluded parents.
 Can I delete an Exclude statement in order to resolve a Security Rule issue?
 What standard reports have security enabled in Release 11i?
 Must I use a universal Include when setting up rules?
 What functions do security rules apply to?
 Is there a report with a list of segment security rules?
 What is Hierarchical Security?
