User based Security Protocols enabled for a Manufacturing Organization

Customer: A US based manufacturing firm

Business Need

Check oracle apps configuration for the master – child entities and it’s user level access controls for 16 user roles.

Considering the total child entities as 99, user roles : 16 and item types: 6, the total combinations to be tested was 99 * 16 * 6 = 9504

It was impossible to cover this manually but was important, as the security configuration was done manually and there are chances of manual errors.

How did we help them?

We built automation scenarios to test the configuration and ran this for all 9500+ combinations.

The test batch was run on a weekend, and by beginning of the sprint, the automation batch could unleash 20+ configuration defects, which would have otherwise slipped into production.

How did they benefit?

The project could identify defects early in the sprint and rectify those.

This test suite can be reused in each sprint to make sure the configuration is intact.
