Personalizing the E-Business Suite R12

There are many places in Oracle EBS R12 where you can tweak the default Oracle look and feel and personalize it according to your client requirement. Below are five places where we change the default oracle branding for any EBS R12 (or 11i also) client.

STEP 1 : CHANGE ‘ORACLE’ LOGO TO YOUR COMPANY LOGO

 

To implement this there are 2 actions required. The first is to change profile option

 

a) Modify the profile option
Login to Applications as System Administrator
Select: System Administrator > Profile – System
Query profile “Corporate Branding Image for Oracle Applications”
Change the SITE level value to the name of the company logo file ( eg  my_company_logo.gif )
Save the change

 

b) Copy the logo file to server
The second action is performed on the Application server.
Open a telnet/PTTY session to the Application server and source Applications environment
Navigate to the $OA_MEDIA directory
Copy the image file to this directory and make sure permissions are set properly
Now clear your browser cache and access the environment. Now the new logo should be rendered.

 

This change will be visible at the login page as well as inside.

 
STEP 2 :  DEFAULT BRANDING CHANGE

 
1. Login with system administrator responsibility
2. Navigate: Application —> Function
3. Query the function FWK_HOMEPAGE_BRAND
4. Replace the User Function Name with the desired text
5. Logout, login and the change should be visible immediate

 

This change will be visible above the responsibility page after user log in.

 

STEP 3 :  Login page Welcome Message (on top)
 
Go to Application Developer – > Application -> Messages
SEARCH FOR FND_SSO_WELCOME AND LANGUAGE US
Put any custom message
Example :
<company name> Production Instance
Note:  This need Apache services bounce.

 

This change will be visible at the login page browser top portion.

 

STEP 4 : LOGIN PAGE MESSAGE (ON TOP OF PAGE)
 
Login – go to Functional Administrator responsibility – Personalization TAB
Search for /oracle/apps/fnd/sso/login/webui/MainLoginPG in Document Path:
Click on Personalization Page icon
On next page, assure that Site:Include is tick marked. Press ‘Apply’
Click on “Personalize” for Page Layout
In ‘Title’ for ‘Site’ value put any custom value Example: ‘<Client_Name> Dev Instance — Copy of Production as on  <>’.  Press Apply

 

This change will be visible at the login page.

 

STEP 5 : SITE NAME PROFILE CHANGE
 
Login > Go to System Administrator responsibility > Profile System
Search for “Site Name” profile
Update it to required value at site level Example: ‘<Client_Name> Dev Instance — Copy of Production as on  <>’.
Click Save.

 
Above five steps will adequately personalize your EBS environment and will certainly increase ease of access for users.
