What is a Processing-Context-Out?

Typically, each Output-Event produced during an AccountingIntegrator Enabler transformation session is made available to a specific  Processing-Context-Out. You reference the name of the Processing-Context-Out in a specific field in that Output-Event via a Mapping Rule.

The name of the Processing-Context-Out object acts as a link between the logical output identified in Composer as the Processing-Context-Out and the physical output identified in AccountingIntegrator Rule Engine as the name of the MQ.Series file or queue.

The purpose of a Processing-Context-Out is to apply secondary processing to a set of generated Output-Events:

  • the audit function by associating (at the most) one Audit-Rule (valid for detailed and/or aggregated Output-Events)
  • the aggregation function by associating (at the most) one Aggregation-Rule
  • the balancing function, by associating (at the most) one Balancing-Rule
  • accounting verification by defining for the Processing-Context-Out the accounting reference characteristics to check

In addition, you can use a Processing-Context-Out to:

  • authorize the generation of accounting Output-Events to amount null
  • extract the data required to produce:
    • the accounting journal
    • a user-customizable report

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 Processing-Context-Outs.
 

Processing-Context-Outs

Use

Are used by

  • Processing-Context-In objects
  • Transformation-Rules
    Note:
    The link between the Processing-Context-Out and the Transformation-Rule is a reference and not a hard-wired link in the database.
    This means that any life-cycle operations you execute on the Transformation-Rule are not automatically cascaded to include the associated Processing-Context-Out object, and vice versa.

How you define a Processing-Context-Out

Before you define a Processing-Context-Out

Before you define a Processing-Context-Out, you must create the following objects if you intend to make reference to them:

Defining a Processing-Context-Out

Create the Processing-Context-Out object from the Interface tab.

To define a new Processing-Context-Out object, complete the following tabs:

In addition, the Processing-Context-Out properties window contains the following tabs:

  • Signature tab
  • Description tab

After you define a Processing-Context-Out

After you define a Processing-Context-Out object, you can:

  • use the Processing-Context-Out in a Transformation-Rule in the Linked object tab
  • select the Processing-Context-Out in a Processing-Context-In object to direct the Output-Events from the session to the logical Processing-Context-Out.

How you use a Processing-Context-Out

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

The Processing-Context-Out object follows the standard object life cycle.
