Understanding User Defined Objects


You can create UDOs for personal use or to share with others. You can secure them completely or provide other user limited access. You can also modify shared UDOs.


In this topic, you will review User Defined Objects in EnterpriseOne.

Step Action
Your ability to access, create, view, and share UDOs depends on the permissions your administrator has given you.

Step Action
You can share UDOs that you create or modify if you have request to publish permissions.

Step Action
An administrator will approve or reject your request to publish.

Step Action
If the administrator determines that you need to revise the UDO, the administrator will send a message to your Work Center explaining the reason why the UDO was rejected. You can then make modifications and Request to Publish it again.

Categories on the menu indicate the current status of a UDO.

An approver uses the Work with User Defined Objects application (P98220U) to approve or reject the UDOs.

Step Action
There are five statuses for UDOs:

Personal: UDOs that are viewable only by you.

Pending Approval: UDOs that you have created and requested to publish will be in this status until your administrator approves to share with others.

Rework: UDOs that are rejected by your administrator and have been returned to you for modifying.

Reserved: UDOs that you have moved from Pending Approval so that you can modify them before they are published or after they are rejected by the administrator and are in the Rework category.

Shared: The UDOs that have been published and are available to all authorized users.

Step Action
Note: One View Watchlists and One View Reports require additional licenses. If you do not see these UDOs, contact your administrator to confirm if you have the required licenses.

Step Action
UDO Design panels are easy to use:

EnterpriseOne has design panels located on the right of the screen that provide you with a consistent way to create and  share UDOs. The look and feel of the design panel is consistent across the UDOs as most of the buttons or drop-down menus are common.

The icons to access the UDOs are placed in strategic locations so that you can quickly know where to click.

The icons are designed for you to know intuitively the UDOs they represent.

The statuses are consistent for all the UDOs.

You have successfully reviewed User Defined Objects in EnterpriseOne.

End of Procedure.
