In an Oracle environment, a responsibility is a defined user right, similar to the word privilege in some other settings. Responsibilities are generally set by the system administrator, and typically specify: what applications a user may access; what transactions a user may perform; and what data the user may perform the transaction on. In her book Oracle E-Business Suite 11i: Implementing core financial applications, Susan Foster explains: "For example, the accounting manager may have full access to Oracle General Ledger, while the accounting clerk may only have access to the Oracle General Ledger journal entry transactions."
