Financial-Event: start here

What is a Financial-Event?

A Financial-Event object is the representation of an event that occurs in an application external and upstream to AccountingIntegrator Enabler and which AccountingIntegrator processes in a transformation session.

Together with the Folder, Financial-Procedure and Input-Event objects, the Financial-Event provides the top-down functional approach of the Business View tab:

  • Input-Event: For each Financial-Event you define an Input-Event, which serves to define the structure of the data in the event.
  • Financial-Procedure: You group Financial-Events that are functionally related in the same Financial-Procedure.
  • Folder: You group Financial-Procedures that are functionally related in the same Folder.

[FOR DETAILS: Business View]

For example, a Folder named Personal Loans contains the Financial-Procedure Managing Loans. This Financial-Procedure comprises a set of Financial-Events, each of which represents a distinct part of the process involved in managing loans. For example:

  • Releasing Funds
  • Managing Repayments
  • Dealing with Penalties

You define one or more Input-Events for each Financial-Event. The Input-Events, distinguished by their validity periods, define the exact technical processing to apply to each individual instance of the Financial-Event at a given point in time. So, the Managing Repayments Financial-Event could comprise ten Input-Events, each of which defines the AccountingIntegrator Enabler objects, that is the Transformation-Rules, used to implement the repayment procedure, over a given period of time.

Object dependencies

When you define or import an object, it is stored in the metadata repository and is available for reuse by other objects. Typically, the objects that you define exist in a specific object hierarchy. That is, objects:

  • use objects below them in the hierarchy
  • are used by objects above them in the hierarchy

To help you manage the interlinked network of objects, the software provides the Object Dependencies Browser that displays the object dependencies for a selected object.

The following table lists the objects that use and are used by Financial-Events.

How you define a Financial-Event

Before you define a Financial-Event

Before you define a Financial-Event, you must create a Financial-Procedure. [FOR DETAILS Business View]

Defining a Financial-Event

Create the Financial-Event object from either the Dictionary tab or from within the Financial-Procedure in the Business View tab.

To define a new Financial-Event object, complete the following:

In addition, the Financial-Event properties window contains the following tabs:

  • Signature tab
  • Description tab

After you define a Financial-Event

After you define a Financial-Event object, you can use the Financial-Event to set the operational policy for the Input-Event to use to specify exactly which AccountingIntegrator Enabler objects are needed to technically implement that policy.

How you use a Financial-Event

You can perform all basic operations on Financial-Event objects, depending on your user rights. [FOR DETAILS: "Working with objects" in the Composer User Guide.]

The Financial-Event does not follow the standard object life cycle. You cannot explicitly send this object to Production.
