We have a user 'HR' in the backend database of EBS R12.2.5.

Our auditors want to plug any security loopholes , and are questioning about the purpose of this user.

Can you elaborate whether this user 'HR' is used in our EBS.Actually we are not using the HR module at all.

We are using AP,AR,Treasury. Please let me know if we can drop/lock/change password of this user ?
