Public Sector Financials

Public Sector Financials - New Profile Options

Profile Option Name Description
PSA: Budgetary Control Report Template Holds an XML Publisher report template name. Many templates are seeded in Budgetary Control. When a Concurrent Request is placed for a report, users can choose a template manually; otherwise, by default, the template mentioned in this profile option will be used. This profile is used to default a template for XML Publisher.
PSA: Default for Missing Budget Valid values for this profile option are Absolute and None. Absolute specifies a strict funds checking, and None means no funds checking at all. A budget will have a period range. A budget organization will have many account ranges, and each account range will be attached to a Budgetary Control option. The Budgetary Control option will have a list of Budgets and Budgetary Control settings like the period range to funds check, currency, Absolute or Advisory funds check, and so forth. While transacting, if the transaction's charge account falls with in the range of the Budget organization and the transaction's period doesn’t fall under any Budget, then whether the transaction should or should not have strict funds checking, will be decided based on this profile option.
PSA: R12 Upgrade Date Holds the date on which the Release 12 upgrade actually happened. This date will determine whether Budgetary Control should handle the transactions in 11i mode or Release 12 mode. For example, the upgrade date is 1-Jan-2007. A requisition is created before the upgrade such as 1-Dec-2006, and a PO is generated after the upgrade such as 1-Feb-2007. In this case, while generating a PO from the requisition, Budgetary Control will determine whether to use Subledger Accounting (in Release 12) business flow logic for the requisition reversal or to process it using the upgrade views based on this profile option value.

Profile Option Name Description
SLA: Accounting Methods Builder Context Controls the value for an internal context code associated with each application accounting definition and each of its assigned components, such as journal line types and account derivation rules.
SLA: Additional Data Access Set This profile option, in conjunction with the GL: Data Access Set profile option, controls which ledgers and balancing or management segment values you can access when logging onto a responsibility. If SLA: Enable Data Access Security in Subledgers is enabled for the responsibility, you have access only to the ledgers and balancing or management segment values included in the data access sets assigned to the SLA: Additional Data Access Set and GL: Data Access Set profile options.
SLA: Allow Reports Journal Source Override Applies only to the following reports:

The profile option enables you to combine data access security with subledger transaction security and therefore control access to subledger journal entries depending on the ledger to which they belong. For example, you can implement a Multi-Organizations Security Profile that allows you to create Oracle Receivables Invoices for two different operating units each associated with different ledgers but restrict drill-down from the subledger transaction to the associated subledger journal entry based upon the destination ledger contained in the Access Set.

SLA: Flush Trace File Controls whether the trace information is sent to the trace file immediately.
SLA: Initial Date for Historical Upgrade Before performing an on-demand upgrade of historical accounting entries, enter the date to determine the initial period from which to start the upgrade.
SLA: Oracle Forms Trace Mode Indicates where the debug information provided by the forms is printed. The possible values are AF Log and File.
