Intercompany Program Passing Incorrect CREATED_BY Details to Interfaces

Audit Trails represent chronological recordings of event sequences and keep track of the users involved in specific processes, giving a clear view of all historical details for financial transactions. Details related to id's of the users creating or changing an accounting record are extremely relevant for auditing purposes.

What was reported?

A couple of bugs were discovered with Advanced Global Intercompany System (AGIS) transfers with incorrect CREATED_BY id's for certain processes.

What Processes Were Affected?

The following relevant programs that record user id's were reported to pass incorrect details to other programs and interfaces:

  • Intercompany Import Program (FUNXIMPB)
  • Manual Intercompany Transactions Sweep (FUNPRDSTSB)

New Feature! Balance Intercompany Journals Using Clearing Balancing Segment Value!

Intercompany transactions occur between two related legal entities or between groups in the same legal entity. In Release 12 of Oracle Applications these transactions are split into two different categories, INTERcompany and INTRAcompany.

Intracompany transactions can also be generated within a ledger where there is no legal entity context.

How Did This Work Before?

For 'no legal entity context', only Intracompany journals could be balanced using a clearing balancing segment value, based on Intracompany rules defined.

What's New?

  • R12.1+ Intracompany Rules user interface was enhanced, now allowing users to setup rules at ledger level (no legal entity context) even when the legal entities to balancing segment value associations are defined in the system
  • Balancing code was enhanced to use ledger level balancing rules instead of the Intercompany or Intracompany rules set up at legal entity level
  • Ability to derive different accounts based on the source and category , when ledger level balancing is used
  • Advanced Global Intercompany System(AGIS) functionality will not be affected by this new setup
  • Possible to toggle between old/new functionality through profile options

Fun balance profile option
