Siebel Data Security 1

Siebel apps uses assigning "responsibility" and "position" to control the secure access for users.
  • Responsibilities determines a collection of views the user can see.
  • Position determines what data the user can access. Position is the base for row security. A position represents an assigned job title within an organization. It determines a set of records the user can see. An example is North America VP of Sales.
The definition of Responsibility is very similar to the "Responsibility" in E-Business Suite (EBS). It is the base for "function security" using the E-Business Suite term. However, EBS responsibility may determine "data security". Each responsibility can be restricted to access only a single operating unit.

This is considered a Siebel interview question.
