User Defined Objects: They’re Here to Stay

With the release of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.2 Tools in October of 2017, there is a new unified life cycle for managing User Defined Objects (UDO). These include the following:

  • Advanced Queries
  • One View Reports
  • One View Watchlists
  • E1 Pages
  • Composite Application Framework (CafeOne)
  • Composed Pages – TR and above
  • Images/Icons – TR and above
  • Personal Forms – TR 9.2.1 and above
  • Search Groups – TR and above
  • Orchestrations Components – TR 9.2.2 and above
    • Service Request
    • Rules
    • White List
    • Cross Reference
  • Schedules -TR 9.2.2 and above
  • Notifications – TR and above
  • Form Extensions – TR

The solution includes integration with a new Object Management Workbench web application (P98220W), where User Defined Objects can be added to projects and transfer through path code environments. There is also a User Defined Object Administration application (P98220U) for managing UDOs in a single environment. In addition, there is new User Defined Object Security that you can access thru the Security Workbench (P00950) for managing security by role and user.


UDO Life Cycle

The UDO life cycle consists of creation and management. To administer this life cycle, EnterpriseOne provides applications to:

Each personalization feature provides consistent functions for users to: create UDOs for their own personal use; request to share UDOs with others; and modify UDOs created by other users. This is done through the EnterpriseOne interface.
If a user requests to share a UDO, an approver uses the Work with User Defined Objects application (P98220U) to review and approve or reject the UDO.
A users’ ability to create, share and view UDOs depends on the security an administrator has assigned in the Security Workbench – Work With User/Role Security application.
OMW users can package and promote UDOs between path codes using the Web OMW application (P98220W).
