Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) Foundation Tables

This post is simply a list of Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) Foundation tables. The Foundation tables contain data that relate to the entire suite of applications – they are not specific to any one module.

Some foundation tables are used in Oracle BI Applications (OBIA), for example, the FND_USER, FND_USER_RESP_GROUPS, and FND_RESPONSIBILITY_VL tables are used in security-related Initialization Blocks.

In general, it’s good to be familiar with these tables when working on OBIEE projects with EBS as a source system.
