About the Explorer pane

The Composer Explorer pane in the Integration-Services workbench includes three panels:

  • Upper panel: displays user Folders to which the Administrator assigns you access. Each Folder is a workspace where you create objects. [FOR DETAILS Working with Folders]
  • Lower panel Finance tab: AccountingIntegrator Enabler plug-in specific tabs:
    • Dictionary contains a list of all the AccountingIntegrator Enabler objects related to the core processing of Input-Events within the software.
    • Business View contains the set of AccountingIntegrator Enabler functional objects only, organized in an accounting context.
    • Interface contains the set of AccountingIntegrator Enabler technical objects which interact either upstream or downstream with the core processing element of AccountingIntegrator Enabler (that is, the Input-Events and the Rules applied to them).
  • Lower panel Common tab: displays the following elements as illustrated:

Folders panel

The Folders panel provides an organizational view of your Information System. For example, each Folder could represent an application in your Information System or a department within your organization.

In AccountingIntegrator Enabler, the Folder is a logical organizational device used to navigate through the database of objects used in the processing conducted in that activity domain. Use the Folders panel to navigate and manipulate this functional configuration in a top-down tree hierarchy and nest up to five levels of Folders.

When you select a Folder, AccountingIntegrator Enabler displays a list of configurable objects in one of the following tabs on the Finance tab in the lower left panel:

Tab Folders visible

Business View

You can view and use objects in all Folders in the hierarchy.
It is an accounting representation of the functional objects and not the hierarchical view of these objects in the AccountingIntegrator Enabler database.

The Business View displays the entire configuration attached to Financial-Procedure objects present in the current root folder. Use filters to restrict the selected objects to the current Folder.

[FOR DETAILS: Filtering the Business View]

Dictionary

You can only view the objects in the current Folder.

Interface

You can only view the objects in the current Folder.

The following table shows the objects displayed in each of the tabs.

AccountingIntegrator Enabler only assures that names are unique for objects in the same root Folder. Two objects of the same type can have the same name if they are in two separate root folders. The AccountingIntegrator Enabler transformation engine can only use the configuration in a single root folder. If you do not respect this rule, that is, AccountingIntegrator Enabler references more than one root folder, you risk overwriting one configuration with another, which can generate unexpected behaviour in the AccountingIntegrator Enabler transformation engine.

Business View

The Business View presents a tree structure with the Financial-Procedures held in the current root folder as the top-level nodes. From these nodes you can browse all the related objects right through to the Transformation-Rule and Financial-Cases. [FOR DETAILS Object dependencies]

The following table describes the objects available in the Business View.

Object Contents

Financial-Procedure

Financial-Procedures defined in the selected Folder or its parent.

Financial-Event

Financial-Events defined in the Folder or its parent and assigned to the selected Financial Procedure.

Input-Event

Input-Event versions defined in the selected Folder or its parent and associated with the selected Financial-Event in the upper level of the tree structure.

Transformation-Rule

Transformation-Rules defined in the selected Folder or its parent and assigned to the Input-Event version selected in the upper level of the tree structure.

Financial-Case

Financial-Cases in the Transformation-Rules defined in the selected Folder or its parent.

A padlock indicates that you cannot modify the displayed object because it is not in the current folder. You can only modify an object if you are in the current folder for that object.

Using the Business View

In the Business View, the objects you create are automatically nested in, and associated with, the object in the preceding level of the tree hierarchy.

Right-click an object to open the contextual menu and perform the following actions:

Filtering the Business View

To filter the Business View:

  1. Right-click the Business View label and select Filter Business View from the contextual menu.
  2. In the Filter dialog box, specify the filter criteria. You can restrict the list of displayed objects to the following subsets:
    • objects in the current folder
    • objects valid for a specific date. By default Composer uses the current date.
  3. Click OK.

Dictionary View

The Dictionary view presents all the functional and technical objects in list form without any indication of the relationship or dependencies between them. The list contains all objects concerned with the actual processing of the Input-Event object which is the core of the AccountingIntegrator Enabler application.

In contrast to the Business view tab, to create an object in the Dictionary tab you must first create all the real data links (that is, the objects used by the object you are creating), in the order required by the database. For example, to define an Input-Event you must first create the Financial-Event, Financial-Procedure, Business-Documents, and Transformation-Rule objects that it depends on.

Interface tab

The Interface tab contains those objects which interface with, but are separate from, the core processing of the Input-Event. The following table describes the objects available in the Interface tab.

Object Function

Transformation-Domain

Groups and organizes the Transformation Phases defined for an Input-Event in the selected Folder or its parent.

Processing-Context-In

Specifies the set of information required by AccountingIntegrator Enabler Rule Engine during Input-Event processing:

  • Defines the location of the technical fields.
  • Activates the functions, exits and external calls applicable to each Input-Event.
  • Sets check parameters, authorizations and error detection.
  • Activates exits and external calls during transformation.

Processing-Context-Out

Defines the exit point (logical outputs) for Output-Events generated in a transformation session:

  • Describes the Rules to apply to the Output-Events.
  • Activates the Accounting Check for accounting type Output-Events.
