Release 12 came with a new feature of accessing the multiple Operating Units with the single responsibility. In R12 they call it Multi-Org Access Control (MOAC).
Multi-Org Access Control (MOAC) enables companies that have implemented a 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.
Features of MOAC
Access multiple operating units within a single application responsibility
Perform tasks for and across multiple operating units:
1. Set-up controls, Negotiate sales agreements
2. Enter quotes, orders and returns
3. Schedule orders, Apply and Release holds
4. Run reports and concurrent programs
5. Setup Transaction Type, apply and release holds
This increases the productivity of Shared Service Centers as users no longer have to switch application responsibilities when processing transactions for multiple operating units at a time.
Ability to view data from multiple operating units from a single responsibility, gives users more information. This enables them to make better decisions. For example when performing scheduling actions, users can now look at orders across multiple operating units and make more informed decisions on inventory allocation.
Setup required for MOAC
At a high level we need to set-up security profiles that allow access to multiple Operating Units. We also need to set the following MO profile options, in order to enable Multi-Org Access Control :
MO: Security Profile
MO: Default Operating Unit.
Note that If you do not set these profiles the application will behave as it does now.
There are almost 13 profile options in OM that has been converted to System parameters.

To support Multi-Org Access Control the Operating Unit has been has added as a hidden folder field in the following forms:
All of the Sales Order Form Windows like Sales Order window, Order Organizer Find window (All tabs), Order Summary, Quick Sales Order window, Quick Sales Order Organizer, Quick Order Summary, Quote window, Quote Organizer, Quote Summary, Find Customer window
All of the Sales Agreement Form Windows, these are –
The Sales Agreement window, Sales Agreement Organizer, Sales Agreement Summary
Other Form Windows including –
The Scheduling Organizer window, Pricing and Availability window, Order Import Corrections window, Open Interface Tracking window, Retro-bill Organizer window, Retro-bill Requests tab
Since operating unit is a hidden fileld we can made it visible (using folder tools) in both the Order Organizer Find Window and the Summary Window.
In the Find Window, if you leave the Operating Unit field blank and do not specify criteria that are Operating Unit sensitive (such as Order Type or Ship To Location etc) you can search for transactions across all the Operating Units that you have access to via your MO: Security Profile.
You can also restrict your search to a single Operating Unit by picking one from the LOV or by specifying a query criteria that is Operating Unit sensitive (such as the Order Type).
1. Improve accessibility
2. Increase information for decision making
3. Reduce costs
Setup Required for MOAC
You can create global security profiles that enable users to work on organizations in multiple business groups.
You do this by setting up a global hierarchy, which can contain organizations from any business group on your database, and associating it with a global security profile. This enables you to create a security hierarchy that gives users access to organizations across business groups.
Enter and Schedule Orders Across OU's
A new Operating field has been added to all the forms that allow you to view and manage Sales Agreements, Quotes, Orders and Returns across multiple Operating Units. With R12 you can:
- Choose an Operating Unit when entering a transaction
- Query transactions across multiple Operating Units
- Perform various actions on transactions from multiple Operating Units
How to do setup

Navigaton > Security > Global Profile.
Create global security profiles that enable users to work on organizations in multiple business groups.
Set up the global organization hierarchy.
Setup top Organization
