After upgrading from Oracle Database 10g to 11g, or 12c, one may encounter the following:

We know from <Note 1209644.1> that it is required to create Access Control Lists, or ACLs, to enable the use of packages that communicate across the network, such as UTL_HTTP or UTL_SMTP, among others.  

In Oracle Database 12c, instead of directly configuring an ACL, you will set up an Access Control Entry (ACE).  The ACL will automatically be created.
