GL: Data Access Set

Before using the ledgers for transaction processing, you must assign a data access set to a General Ledger responsibility using the profile option, GL: Data Access Set. Data access sets control which ledgers can be accessed by different responsibilities. Data access sets also limit a user from accessing certain balancing segment values or management segment values or grant read–only or read and write access to data in a ledger. If you are using Oracle Subledgers, the data access set should include the ledger that is assigned to the GL Ledger Name profile option that controls ledgers used by subledger applications.

See:

Multiple Organizations Profile Options

If you use multiple organizations access control feature, you can assign operating units to responsibilities by using the following profile options:

Note: Public Sector Financials (International) does not own the Multiple Organizations profile options.

See: Setting Up a Multiple Organization Enterprise, Oracle Applications Multiple Organizations Implementation Guide.

Select Credit so that users enter the sum of all credit amounts as a control total for the batch. When the batch is complete, the system verifies the control total equals credits entered.

Select Debit so that users enter the sum of all debit amounts as a control total for the batch. When the batch is complete, the system verifies the control total equals debits entered.

Select Hash Total so that users enter the sum of combined debit and credit amounts as a control total for the batch. When the batch is complete, the system verifies the control total equals debits and credits entered.

Budgeting Extensions: Average Non – Balance Enforced Account Value

Controls how a user can enter unbalanced budget amounts in budget journals and how the system displays the year-to-date figures for non-balanced enforced accounting flex fields. Yes displays year-to-date figures as average of the periods. No displays year-to-date in standard Oracle General Ledger way.

Budgeting Extensions: Allow Prior Period Budgeting

IGI: CIS2007 Activation Date

This profile option sets the date from which the new Construction Industry Scheme Library code is enabled.

Generic Interface: View Secure Sources

The profile option Generic Interface: View Secure Sources determines if users can retrieve details of transactions imported from secure feeder systems. Setting the value to Yes enables users to retrieve details. If users are not allowed to view data from specific feeder systems, the system administrator must set the View Secure Sources profile option to No at Site, Application, Responsibility, or User level.

Note: Setting this option to No enables the Secure Source check box on the Feeder System Descriptors window. Selecting the Secure Source check box for a feeder system restricts users from viewing details of transactions imported from that feeder system.
