Features / Readme

Data Adapter

The Universal Data Adapter enables you to integrate external source
table/view information directly into FDMEE, bypassing the open
interface table. This feature allows the user to easily connect to any
source data where they have access to the underlying database in the
case where a prepackaged adapter is not available, or if the
pre-packaged adapter does not provide the required data. This feature
effectively provides direct integration to any source table or view.

Testing Check
Rule Expressions

Check rules have been enhanced so that you can now test a rule in the
Test Expression tab of the Rule Logic screen and validate conditions
for a combination of dimensions. When a test check rule is submitted,
you can display errors that were found in the rule being tested.

Loading Exchange
Rates to Financial Management

You can now load exchange rates from EBS and Peoplesoft to Hyperion
Financial Management.

Extracting Financial Management Journals

Source parameter and source filters have been enhanced to extract the
type of journal.

Purge Scripts

FDMEE now supports system processes that enable you to maintain and
cleanup all runtime artifacts, such as the Process tables, Staging
tables or Inbox / Outbox folders. Often these tables and folders
contain vast amounts of data, which you may no longer need. With the
Purge Script feature, you can purge standard tables and folder by
scheduling system processes and executing them.

Map Monitor

Two new Map Monitor reports have been added to the Audit Reports report
group: Map Monitor for Location and Map Monitor for User. Map monitor
reports show changes made to the data load mapping rules using any of
the methods data load mappings UI, Excel template imports, text file
imports, and Lifecycle Management imports.

The Map Monitor reports do not capture historical data earlier than
release Map Monitor reports are enabled only if the
Enable Map Audit is set to “Yes” in System Settings.
