umask is not functioning

I tried to change the umask to 022 (now it is 027) and it is not functioning.
Every time I get back to the server and I typed umask, it shows me the 027.

I followed this steps as the oracle user:

shutdown the orale listener.
umask 022
start the oracle listener.

you must add the 'umask' statement to your user's profile, since the umask setting doesn't survive the shell in which it was modified, but will fall back to a default.
This default is usually 022. If your standard umask is 027, it gets probably set in a central profile, usually /etc/profile.
Look there whether you can find it.

What's not functioning?

What shell does oracle have?

Depending on the shell, it may need to go into .bash_profile or similar.

Oracle client umask is working - evidence with touch test and the privilege was 644.

Another client in the Os was not working but the user is not part of the dba group.
