This new Feature in R12 ,enables companies that have implemented or implementing shared services operating model to efficiently process business transactions by allowing them to access, process and report on data for an unlimited number of operating units within a single applications responsibility. Users are no longer required to switch applications responsibilities when processing transactions for multiple operating units.
Data security is maintained using security profiles that determine the data access privileges associated to responsibilities granted to a user.
Because of this you can perform multiple tasks across operating units without changing responsibilities, the simple case can be best described as diagram in the left, where 3 user from three difference OU's required three separate responsibility to perform the task.
- Multi-Org Access Control feature allows you to enter, process data and generate reports from a single responsibility
- This is achieved by providing the Operating Unit field on the forms/pages and while running the concurrent processes
- To Set this feature you need to define the security profile containing operating units and set it at MO: Security Profile
- You can default the Operating Unit on forms/pages by setting the MO: Default Operating Unit profile
What are the new changes from Multi Organization(Multi Org) to Multiple Organization Access Control.
- As discussed above, security Profiles for data security
- MO: Security Profile
- List of operating units for a responsibility
- OU field on UI
- all transactions
- setup data specific to OU, like transaction type
- Enhanced Multi-Org Reporting and Processing
- Ledger/Ledger Set parameter on accounting reports and processes
- OU parameter on other standard reports and processes
- For example: submit the Payables Open Interface Import w/OU param null to import all records across all OUs
Where and how to define a security profile?
Using Oracle HRMS, you can define your security profile using two forms:
- The Security Profile form
- The Global Security Profile form that is shown here.
The Security Profile Form allows you to select operating units from only one Business Group. The Global Security profile Form allows you to select operating units from multiple Business Groups.
The decision on which form to use is really up to you and depends on your HR implementation and how you want to partition data. All you need to do is enter a name, and select the Security Type called â€œSecure organizations by organization hierarchy and/or organization listâ€. This allows you to assign multiple OUs. When assigning operating units, first select classification Operating Unit, and then select the organization or Operating Unit name. You can assign as many operating units as you want.
