Edit Parameters

Parameters determine values, describing the properties of movements. They are created at configuration import and their values can be retrieved from a Data table.

Parameters are automatically created when importing configuration from the Rule Engine (with the mvt.xml file) or when importing sample data files. In AI Suite Studio you can edit/ annotate a Parameter as explained below, depending on your user rights (for information about user rights and privileges, read the AccountingIntegrator Security guide):

  1. In the left-hand Navigation pane, select SpecificationsParameters.
  2. Click a Parameter in the list, then click Edit
  3.  Fill in the form entries in the General tab:
    • Code - The ID of the Parameter
    • Label - The name it will appear as in the UI (if left empty, Label=Code).
    • Domain - Choose from the list of existing domains.
    • Description, Tags - Help that you can provide for your end-users to find and understand this Parameter
    • Links, Attachments - Further reading for your end-users to understand the Parameter
  4. Click the Data section, then select the type: String, Number, Date or Boolean
  5. In the case of a Number, you can specify the Fraction digits, indicating how many digits a number displays after the decimal point, with a maximum of 8. To display 123 as 123.00 (or 123,00, depending on regional settings), specify: Fraction digits=2.
  6. In the Facet list, you can select one of the following values:
    • none - This parameter is not mapped to any facet
    • CURRENCY - The currency used for the transaction
    • ACCOUNT - The Parameter with this Facet, when included in an Accounting method, will determine the account associated to an output of that method. 
    • DIRECTION - values can be Credit or Debit
    • AMOUNT - Setting this Facet informs AI Suite Studio that this Parameter expresses the Amount associated to an output of an Accounting method.
  7. Use the Data table field to associate a data table to this parameter. The values of the parameter are then retrieved from the Data table.
