Oracle Assets Deletion API

This appendix covers the following topics:


You can use this API if you have a custom interface that makes it difficult to use with the existing interfaces in Oracle Assets. You can use this API to automatically delete the asset not only from the corporate book, but also from dependent tax books.

Note: You can delete assets only when you are adding and their accounts are not yet processed in subledger accounting.

Alternate Ledger Currency

If you have set up alternate ledger currency , when you add or modify assets using an Oracle Assets API, the API copies the transactions to the reporting currencies automatically. Invoice rounding issues are avoided by using the API to drive the alternate ledger currency accounting for both the ledger and reporting currencies.

Deletion API Description

The following table provides the arguments, types, value, and descriptions of the elements of the FA_DELETION_PUB.do_delete procedure, which is the Deletion API procedure.

Each argument has a prefix of P, X, or PX. These prefixes mean the following:

Argument Type Value Description
P_API_VERSION NUMBER Internal use only Version of the API in use.
P_INIT_MESG_LIST VARCHAR2(1) FND_API.G_TRUE - Initialize the message stack.
FND_API.G_FALSE - Do not initialize the message stack (Default)
Determines whether the messages stack should be initialized and cleared.
P_COMMIT VARCHAR2(1) FND_API.G_TRUE - Commit automatically.
FND_API.G_FALSE - Do not commit automatically (Default)
Commits the transaction.
P_VALIDATION_LEVEL NUMBER FND_API.G_VALID_ LEVEL_NONE - Low level validation for a transaction.
FND_API.G_VALID_ LEVEL_FULL - High level validation for a transaction (Default).
Asset validation by the API.
P_CALLING_FN VARCHAR2(30)   Function calling the API
FND_API.G_RET_STS_ ERROR - Indicates a failed transaction.
FND_API.G_RET_STS_ UNEXP_ERROR - Indicates an unexpected error.
Determines the API success.
X_MSG_COUNT NUMBER   Number of messages on the message stack.
X_MSG_DATA VARCHAR2(1024)   Message stack.
PX_ASSET_HDR_REC FA_API_TYPES. ASSET_HDR_REC_TYPE   Unique identifiers for the assets.

ASSET_HDR_REC Asset Structure

The ASSET_HDR_REC_TYPE asset structure contains unique identification information for a given asset, such as the asset ID and book type code. The following table shows type and value information for each argument.

Argument Required / Optional Type Value
ASSET_ID Required NUMBER(15) OUT parameter.
BOOK_TYPE_CODE Required VARCHAR2(15) Book name.

Sample Script: Using the Deletion API

The following sample script shows how you can use the Asset Deletion API.
