Software Protection Codes are a thing of the past, but companies are still bound by license agreements with Oracle.  To ensure compliance, how do IT Departments track user licenses in current releases of JD Edwards World?

The User Activity Report is an enhancement delivered in A9.1 and above.  UAR allows you to run basic reports of user activity which you can use to determine whether you are in compliance with your Oracle software license agreements. UAR allows you to create collection periods and run reports to audit user activity, menu history, and file activity for specific time periods. You can then print the reports which contain detail or summary information of this activity.

Overview of User Activity Report:

  • Available for all Releases Supported (A9.1, A9.2 & A9.3X)
