A suggestion would be to use CUSTOM.PLL to fire a WHEN-NEW-FORM-INSTANCE trigger. If the responsibility is one you want to be Query Only, then set the standard form level parameter: QUERY_ONLY = YES. I would suggest a Flex value set to store the responsibility name and ID. That way you can add or remove them without having to hard-code values in CUSTOM.PLL.

Thanks schwertner.

I already found your first post on the internet and it's not the way we want to go, but thanks anyway.  The 2nd post is talking about creating a read only database schema. So that doesn't fit.

I've logged an SR with Oracle, but they are not supporting this feature via any simple means yet. There is an ER logged with them for possible Enhancement in the future.

I am going to mess around with RBAC and some other messier mechanism that the organisation has used in the past. I just wanted to see if the community had come up with anything better.

I'll leave the question open for a few more days, if no one comes back with anything I will close it out.

Thanks for you  help to date.

Hi ,

You mentioned the  ER#  BUG_ID: 4355862 ,

The workaround is to duplicate each function of the menus and set its parameter to QUERY_ONLY=YES ,

You can see the Metalink DocID :       400380.1 (How To Create a QUERY-ONLY FORM)

Best Regards/
