Last updated on DECEMBER 05, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle MES for Discrete Manufacturing - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On 12.0.4 in Production:
When attempting to use the newly created responsibility MES Supervisor – Vision Operations (which is an exact replica of standard MES Supervisor), the following error occurs:


The MO Operating unit and MO Secutiry profile profiles to this responsibility are setup correctly.
The employee who is trying to access this MES responsibility have been defined as resource in this ORGANIZATION.

The same happens with MES Operator and MES Administrator.

The Business reason being that: you may have different inventory organizations and want to restrict access to these Inventory organizations by Responsibility so that users from one INV organization won't be able to access/transact in other inventory organizations.

Steps To Reproduce:
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create Responsibility: MES Supervisor – Vision Operartions using menu: MES Workstation - Main Menu
2. Assign it to user who is an employee
3. Access responsibility => enter Organization => click Start(0)
4. Error shows up
