Configuration of Oracle E-Business Suite Enterprise Command Centers (ECC)

ECC is a set of tightly-integrated, information-rich dashboards which helps users to identify and act on priority transactions without custom operational reporting.

Also, Its middleware technology made up of an interactive JavaScript front end and a Java back end engine.

ECC setup consist of 5 major component

  1. Database Setup for ECC
  2. Install WebLogic Server for ECC
  3. ECC domain Setup
  4. Setup of EBS JNDI
  5. Integration of ECC with EBS

Pre - requisites

  • Download & Install the quick Install package.
  • Apply relevant product command center patches on EBS Instance.
  • Create a separate user for ECC components Installation (optional)

Configuration Setup Steps of ECC

1. Set Up the Database

(a) Navigate to the $ECC_BASE/Oracle/quickInstall/ directory and open the file with a text editor.

(b) cd $ECC_BASE/Oracle/quickInstall

(c) ./ -> Select option 1

Validation of DB setup

  • (a) cd $ECC_BASE/Oracle/quickInstall/env source ecc.env
  • (b) sqlplus <ECC_DB_USER>@<EBS DB Connect String>

sqlplus $ECC_DB_USER@\"$ECC_DB_CONNECTION\" sqlplus ECC@\"\"

SQL> select name,open_mode,user from v$database;



2. Install WebLogic Server

sh $ECC_BASE/Oracle/quickInstall/
   select Install WebLogic Server - Select 2

3. Create ECC domain

  • (a) prompts ECC db password
  • (b) prompts domain admin password and configures that password for the current installation. (It must contain a special character)

4. Create EBS JNDI

  • (a) On EBS server go to $FND_SECURE/SID.dbc

  • (b) Make a note fully qualified domain name of the target Oracle Enterprise Command Center Framework host system & dbc file from source

  • (c) java apps/<apps_password> CREATE NODE_NAME=<fully_qualified_domain_name_of_target_ECC_host_system> DBC=<full_local_DBC_file_path

[appldev@testebs04 ~]$ java apps/apps CREATE DBC=/u01/ebs/R122/TESTEDEV/fs1/inst/apps/TESTEDEV_testebs04/appl/fnd/12.0.0/secure/TESTEDEV.dbc Committing changes CREATE executed successfully - TESTEDEV_TESTEBS04.TESTECC.COM.dbc

  • (d) Rename copied dbc file as connection.dbc on server copy this file to the $ECC_BASE/Oracle/quickInstall & rename as connection.dbc
  • (e)Run the script from the $ECC_BASE/Oracle/quickInstall directory.Choose Option 4 - Create EBS JNDI

NOTE: Find user (ECC_discovery) password should be 9 non repeated characters long .

  • (f) Perform JNDI validation from the ECC domain admin console.

    • URL: http://<ECC_HOST_NAME>:<ECC_ADMIN_PORT>/console
    • Navigate to Services > Data Sources.
    • Choose the ebsdb JNDI config. the right pane.
    • Navigate to the Monitoring tab and select the Testing subtab.
    • Click on the managed server and Select Test Data Source button. The following message should appear: Success Test of ebsdb on server was successful.

5. Integrate ECC with EBS

  • (a) Run the script. select option 5, Integrate ECC With EBS.
  • (b) Go to DOMAIN_HOME/servers//data/ldap/ldapfils and remove the EmbeddedLDAP.lok lock file
  • (c) Delete the *.dat file under DOMAIN_HOME/servers//data /store/default and DOMAIN_HOME/servers//data /store/diagnostics/
  • (d)Remove the contents under DOMAIN_HOME/servers// tmp and DOMAIN_HOME/servers// cache
    • Now start the server

(6) Log in to Oracle E-Business Suite as a system administrator.

  • (a)Navigate to System Administration: Oracle Applications Manager > AutoConfig.
  • b) Select the application tier context file, and choose Edit Parameters.
  • (c) Search for the s_ecc_conf_comment variable by selecting OA_VAR in the search list of values and entering s_ecc_conf_comment in the search text box. Then choose the Go button.
  • (d) Remove the number sign (#) from the Value field for the s_ecc_conf_comment variable to ensure that this variable is not commented. Then choose the Save button.
  • (e) Enter a reason for the update, such as Enabling Oracle Enterprise Command Center Framework. Then choose the OK button.
  • (f) Similarly, search for the following variables and set their values as appropriate for your installation:
  • (g)s_ecc_protocol,s_ecc_web_host,s_ecc_managed_server_port, s_ecc_conf_update:

[appldev@testebs04 scripts]$ grep s_ecc $CONTEXT_FILE

   grep -i s_ohs_instance_loc $CONTEXT_FILE
   grep -i s_ohs_component $CONTEXT_FILE
   grep -i s_ohs_instance_loc $CONTEXT_FILE
   grep -i s_ohs_component $CONTEXT_FILE

(7) Import Enterprise Command Center Applications

  • (a) source EBSapps.env run (On EBS node)
  • (b) cd $FND_TOP/bin Perl [appldev@testebs04 bin]$ perl


ECC provides information discovery along with visualization and exploration capabilities embedded within Oracle E-Business Suite user interfaces also it’s dashboard users identify and act on top priorities without the need for custom operational reporting, and use information-driven navigation.
