Responsibility in Oracle Apps:
A responsibility lets you control what (forms / reports ) a user can access when logged into it.
A responsibility will have one main menu. Under that main menu you can have other sub menus or functions. Each of these responsibilities can be assigned to various user accounts.
Menu is assigned to responsibility –> Responsibility is assigned the user.
When user logs into Oracle apps, he will see a list of responsibilities that he can access. When he gets into one of the responsibilities, he will see the list of menus, sub menus and functions he can access.
Responsibility details are stored in the following tables:
