Oracle Cloud Security - Migrating Security Roles from one POD to Another

Purpose:

This document describes the strategy to migrate Security Job Roles from one POD to another.

In this white paper, you will learn how to plan and execute a successful Security Role Migration in Oracle Cloud Security. We often face challenges at different stages while implementing Cloud ERP Project as it involves the creation of Security Roles and privileges again on the next POD. This applies to Fusion Cloud Security.

Major issue security teams face is that role migration in Oracle ERP Cloud can be a very tedious and time-consuming task. In fact, historically there was no feasible way to “migrate” roles at all – rather, security teams were forced to manually rebuild roles from the ground up in each environment.

Executive Summary

If you are finding a way to migrate custom roles created from any DEV/TEST environment to a production environment, this a quick way to replicate this role information from one production instance to another.

You can accomplish most of your HCM security migration needs by exporting the business objects in the Users and Security functional area within the Workforce Deployment offering. The offerings which have a Users and Security functional area, but only the Workforce Deployment offering has the business objects that support migration of HCM custom roles within its Users and Security functional area.
