JD Edwards (JDE) EnterpriseOne Security is an enterprise-wide security solution designed to help organizations protect their valuable data and applications from unauthorized access.

With this solution, organizations can ensure that only authorized personnel have access to business-critical information and provides comprehensive audit trails, reducing the risk of data theft or misuse, improving compliance with local and federal regulations, and making it easier to track user activity within the system.

Read on to learn more about JDE E1 security, as well as how our consultants can help you.

Understanding JDE Security

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne (E1) security enables system administrators to outline and control security measures for individuals with a specific User ID or more comprehensive user groups. It offers a range of features such as role-based security, user authentication, and authorization management that enable IT teams to quickly respond to threats and reduce overall risks for their most important data.

The JDE User Security application allows companies to configure their security settings for…

  • An individual user: Controls individual security using JDE User IDs
  • All users: Controls security for users with a “PUBLIC” ID type in User or Role fields
  • A user role: Controls security by role (i.e., groups based on similar job requirements)

The EnterpriseOne security model (P98OWSEC) is designed to create, change, update, or test security for users and their attached database management systems. This security application also uses the F98OWSEC table to manage individual and system User IDs to limit access to certain data sources and ensure users have correct permissions to complete their jobs.

How Does an Object-Level Security Model Work?

The JD Edwards EnterpriseOne security model operates at the object level, meaning that users can leverage flexible security solutions to secure specific business objects within their JDE system.

With JD Edwards Security, companies can outline business requirements, set up security for multiple objects at one time on a specific menu or under a specific system code. This allows companies to simplify their security model, making it easier to secure objects throughout the system.

At specific object levels, system administrators can outline and set these security levels…

Action Security

This security level helps define Action security at the application, version and form level and prevent users from performing a particular activity within the JDE system, including revising, adding, or deleting specific employee or company records.

Row Security

Row security outlines specific rules for access to information within a JD Edwards table. With this level of security, users are secured from accessing a particular list or range of values or records within a table.

For example, securing an employee from accessing records 15-20 allows them to access and view business units 1-15 and 20+, but not units 15-20.

Column Security

This level of security outlines permissions for individual users to view a particular field or change a value in an application or version of the application. The object can be defined as either a database or non-database field within the data dictionary, and each field requires specific access permissions for each user.

For example, if a user is secured from accessing the
“Benefits” field, then their individual application will not include “Benefits” among the outlined fields.

Menu Security

Menu security in JD Edwards secures users from accessing or viewing data included in certain menus throughout the business structure. This, for example, would allow a system administrator to permit access to only levels B and C (in a menu with levels A-E) for a particular role or user within JD Edwards.

Application Security

The Application security level cannot be defined at the subform level in JD Edwards. And, with Application security, users are secured from running or installing applications or app versions within their JD Edwards system.

What is the JDE Security Workbench Application?

The JD Edwards Security Workbench is designed to help users apply security to their JDE applications, app versions, objects, and forms within the system using user, role, or PUBLIC object levels. The workbench stores valuable security information in a F00950 table and reserves such information in each client’s web server memory or workstation memory.

With the Security Workbench, JDE users can apply security permissions and guidelines to their JD Edwards software, including forms, subforms, and user defined objects, making it easier to maintain secure business processes and stay up-to-date with important security measures.
