Advanced Features and Options Running EBS Workflow Analyzer as a Concurrent Request (Doc ID 1425053.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 17, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Workflow - Version 11.5 to 12.2 [Release 11.5 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


This is an Addendum to Note 1369938.1 - Workflow Analyzer script for E-Business Suite Workflow Monitoring and Maintenance. This document will guide the user through Advanced Features and Options Running EBS Workflow Analyzer as a standard Concurrent Request from Oracle Applications.

Currently, manual execution of the existing Workflow Analyzer script (package wrapper file workflow_analyze.sql) requires a System Administrator or DBA user with access to SQL*Plus and Applications Owner (<APPS_user>) password. Setting up the Workflow Analyzer as a Concurrent Program, as outlined in the main Workflow Analyzer Doc ID 1369938.1, allows end users with the proper Responsibility to have the ability to execute the Workflow Analyzer as a concurrent request, or schedule periodically without the need of SQL access or the Applications Owner (<APPS_user>) password.

This Note is to provide additional options when running Analyzers as a Concurrent Request.  These steps can be modified and used for any Analyzer run as a Concurrent Request.
