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

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.
