Just now I was working on one issue and wanted to share solution ; First of all this is very common error if you have custom top on your EBS environment and misconfiguration ( I dont know who did it, It was before me 🙂 )
This is generally happen after clone on your test/dev/uat environment 🙂
There are some environment configurations you have to check and modify it ;
Before start to do something please also check this ;
Function not Available to this Responsibility (Doc ID 1079951.1)
1) Login to applications and try to open the custom Form.
2) Navigate to Help –> Diagnostics –> Examine. Click the “Examine Fields and variable values”
3) Populate the field with the next values:
BLOCK –> $ENVIRONMENT$
FIELD –> (For example XXCUS1_TOP)
4) Push tab key and check that the variable is defined and that the VALUE is correct.
If you have error here go on with solution below ;
Modify Environment files “$APPL_TOP/APPS<ORACLE_SID>_<hostname>.env”
For Example : $APPL_TOP/APPSTEST_ittutorial.env”
# Source the custom file if it exists
if [ -f $customfile ]; then
Add custom top into default.env file “$INST_TOP/ora/10.1.2/forms/server/default.env”
