Oracle Identity Manager (OIM) 11g - Use UDDS Code to Grant Data Level Access in HRS

UDDS codes are used to determine the data level access of a given user in Oracle Identity Manager. This document will provide a brief overview of what the individual components of a UDDS code mean.

The acronym UDDS is an HRS term related to a unique alphanumeric code that means:

  • U = Business Unit (e.g. campus)
  • D = Division
  • D = Department
  • S = Sub-Department
UDDS codes consist of seven characters. The first character is always a letter and corresponds to the UDDS code's campus. The next six characters are numbers which specify division, department and sub department. The second and third characters correspond to division, the fourth and fifth characters correspond to department and the sixth and seventh characters correspond to sub-department.

Take the UDDS code A022040 for example:

  • Business Unit = A [UW-Madison]
  • Division = 02 [General Services]
  • Department = 20 [Human Resources]
  • Sub-Department = 40 [Employee Services]


A user will be able to view information for all employees within and below his or her access level. For example, a user with access to A02 will be able to view information for all users in the General Services Division, including all of its departments and sub-departments. A user with access to A022040 will only be able to view information for that specific sub-department. 

Each campus has an alpha code identifier, which is the first character of the UDDS code. As an example, the UW-Madison campus code identifier is the letter "A". Each campus also has a five character abbreviation (e.g. UWMSN) which is used in the Oracle Identity Manager when requesting campus wide access. To request system wide access for someone, select the code "UWS".
