About Linked objects

You can link the following objects to a Transformation-Rule:

  • Processing-Context-Outs via the Linked objects tab. The Linked objects tab serves only as a visual reminder of the Processing-Context-Out objects, which define the specific aggregation, audit, and balancing operations to perform on the logical outputs generated by AccountingIntegrator Enabler.
  • DML objects, that is Tables and Variables. To set this link, you use the name of the object in the Mapping Rules in the Transformation-Rule. AccountingIntegrator Enabler automatically creates this link when it checks or saves the object, provided that the mapping is correct.
  • Financial-Tags and Mapping-Templates, when you define the Output-Events.
  • Business-Documents,which enable you to define the structure of the Input-Event segment at the entry point and the Output-Event segments at the exit.

With the exception of the Processing-Context-Out object, all objects are  sent to Production with the Transformation-Rule.The links are actually created in the Mapping Rule phrases themselves. The Linked objects tab serves only as a visual reminder of the Processing-Context-Out objects (that is, the aggregation, audit, and balancing) that you referenced in the definition of each Mapping Rule.

The dual list in the Linked objects tab enables you to select and link these Processing-Context-Out objects which you must then send to Production manually.

When you select a Processing-Context-Out object, the system:

  • does not make any explicit link between it and the Transformation-Rule in the database. There is no hard-wired data link between the Processing-Context-Out object and the Transformation-Rule, which is why you must send the Processing-Context-Out object to Production separately.
  • associates the Processing-Context-Out(s) with the Transformation-Rule in the Object Dependencies Browser. This also links the Aggregation-, Audit- and Balancing-Rules defined in the Processing-Context-Out object.

To dynamically define the sequence of processing to apply to the Output-Events generated by the Rule, in the Mapping Rules in the Output-Events you can specify the following names of the following elements:

  • The logical Processing-Context-Out to which the system directs the generated Output-Events dynamically define the Output-Event functional fields.
  • The Audit, Aggregation or Balancing-Rules the system applies via the specified Processing-Context-Out.  The Mapping Rules also define the technical fields (output code and Rule names to be applied to the Output-Events). The definitions of the objects associated with these technical fields must be sent to Production in conjunction with the Transformation-Rule.

You must therefore use the Linked objects tab to link the Processing-Context-Out to the Transformation-Rule.

Linking objects using lists

The Linked Objects tab comprises two panes as illustrated schematically as follows.


Processing-Context-Out objects referenced in Mapping Rule

 

Window with two lists, displaying all available Processing-Context-Out objects

Available Processing-Context-Out objects in the current folder.

Selected Processing-Context-Out objects from any folder, provided that it shares the same root folder as the current object

The following table summarizes how to use the dual list:

To Perform this action

Transfer a Processing-Context-Out object from one list to the other

Select the Processing-Context-Out and click Add.
Alternatively, double click the item.

Select multiple items

Click the first item and Shift+click the last item.
Alternatively, Ctrl-click each item.

Remove a single item in either list

Click the item, then click Remove.

Remove all items in the Selected list

Click Remove all.

To use Processing-Context-Out objects which are not in the current folder, drag-and-drop them from the Entity Browser.
