Welcome to the Advanced Global Intercompany System (AGIS) setup

Description of the setup that is used in this viewlet is as follows
One ledger called Blink ledger.
Two legal entities under that ledger called BCR Singapore legal entity and BCR Japan legal entity. Two operating units Blink AGIS Singapore OU, Blink AGIS Japan OU respectively.

*Note: Setting up of receivable setup is mandatory, for using invoicing functionality. And for setting up of receivables mandatory that inventory Organization are created as well.

The transactions in this example are assumed to be happening from BCR Singapore to BCR Japan. For theses two create
Two employees: BCR Singapore and BCR Japan
Two Users : BCR_S and BCR_J
Create receivables and GL Responsibilities.

As the first step we should define employees in HRMS. These employees are used later on in the AGIS security setups.

Navigation: HRMS, Progress Admin S&L>>People>>Enter and Maintain

Define an employee ‘BCR, Singapore’ .This person will be attached to the user initiating the transaction in AGIS. In our example transaction gets initiated by BCR Singapore


Similarly create another employee (Recipient) BCR Japan and Save your new creations.

Create a users like BCR_S & BCR_J. Note the Person attached to this User is (BCR, Singapore) he is now the contact Person

Next step is to define Custom responsibilities like GL Super User, AP Super User, AP Super User, HRMS Management, OM, & AGIS Super user Resposibilities and attach it to our users.

Our next setup in AGIS set id to define a business group

Login to HRMS Responsibility and create Business group called Blink AGIS, Which you will later require to attach with the operating Units.

HRMS Management>>HRMS Manager>>Work Structures>>Organization>>Description

Click on Other button at line Level and set the Business Group settings:


Next step is to set some of the system profile options.
Navigation: System Administrator>>Profile>>System

Profile options where set for
1. HR: Business Group,
2. HR: Security,
3. MO: operating Unit,
4. MO: security profile,
5. MO: Default Operating Unit Profile,
6. GL Ledger name
One might already know, If MO: Security profile is defined the MO: Operating unit profile becomes redundant.
