If your company's IT security policy requires users to change passwords frequently, and each user averages five to ten passwords, one for each application, that can be a time consuming process for them. It's an even greater challenge for those who manage User IDs and passwords. This is where the beauty of Oracle Single Sign-On for JDE EnterpriseOne and other Oracle applications comes into play. Charles Anderson provides the steps to shorten the time for users and administrators by creating a single sign-on that requires one User ID and one password per user to access their JDE and Oracle applications. This is part one of a three-part series. This issue: the Oracle Internet Directory.

Now that JD Edwards can be accessed via the Internet, to say that you need to secure your communications is an understatement. Sure, you're fine when it's just on your LAN. But HTTP isn't going to cut it when it comes to logging via the World Wide Web. You need something safe, something secure. You need Secure Sockets Layers (SSL) to secure your data transmission. Now you just need to implement SSL on your IBM Web Server. Bill Loban shows you how--step by step.

So, what's the latest rumor you've heard about EnterpriseOne? After a while, they become almost folkloric--like the email urban legends we mindlessly pass around, without actually checking to see what's fact and what's fable. In the email world, a simple surf over to "Snopes" will verify whether, indeed, not buying gas on a certain day will lower the price (FALSE). At JDEtips, we have Mike Wright, our own technical myth buster. Mike refutes some common misconceptions floating around about E1. See if you recognize a few of these.

What happens when you delete a User Profile from P0092? Do you know all that you've deleted? Do you know what you might be leaving behind? User profile deletions can leave orphaned records hanging in various tables, if you're not careful. And checking for all records in each table can be a tedious job, to say the least. Fortunately Mike Wright offers up a neat solution that can help you do a clean sweep the next time you delete a User Profile, without spending a lot of time and energy checking each and every table (unless of course, you really enjoy doing that sort of thing).

There's really no such thing as maintenance-free: our cars, our houses and most definitely, our technology all require some time and investment on our part to keep things running smooth, at peak performance, and avoid breakdowns at all-too-critical moments (which you know is when they'll happen!) JD Edwards EnterpriseOne is no different. Bill Loban has some tips for two areas that can get overly-cluttered and slow things down to a crawl if they're allowed to grow: Job Records and Associated PDFs, and Work Center messages.

Bill Loban continues his series on OCM by walking us through the process of setting up data sources prior to adding their associated OCM mappings. Maybe a bit of cart before the horse, but we figured that you'd want to know all about OCM mappings in the first place before we tossed this subject out there. Since you can have varying types of data sources and different databases, it is pretty handy to have a way of keeping track of who's using which data where. This article will help you get all that sorted out.

The Object Configuration Manager (OCM) mappings are the lifeline of your EnterpriseOne system. The Object Configuration Master Table (F986101) contains all of the mappings that basically tell the system where to get the data and where to run processes such as business functions and batch jobs (UBE). It is very important that these mappings are accurate and maintained properly. Most people focus on the mappings that affect the client and then use SQL or manual methods to populate the server maps. This article will show how to make the process easier and tell you what to watch out for when doing it.

With EnterpriseOne 8.10, came the introduction of Unicode. Unicode is a standard for representing characters as integers. Unlike ASCII, which uses 8 bits for each character, Unicode uses 16 bits, which means that it can represent 65,280 more unique characters. When upgrading to 8.10, clients have the option to convert business data and control tables to Unicode after the upgrade. Bill Loban's article will break this all down for you - what is Unicode, what are its benefits, and what to look out for if you choose to convert.

As a faithful reader of JDEtips, you have probably already read Mike Wright's article called "Generating Debug Logs" from November 2003. That article gave great instructions and tips for using the EnterpriseOne debug log tool. This new article by Anuj Goyal shows us how he and his team developed a nifty tool to turn the debug log on and off "on the fly". Guess what they named this utility? We love to see creative minds at work out there making a good thing even better.
