Oracle Financials for Asia/Pacific Post-Install Steps

Asia/Pacific Post-Install Steps

Complete these post-install steps for Oracle Financials for Asia/Pacific installations.

  1. Attach core Financials menus to localization menus.

  2. Attach new responsibilities to users.

  3. Insert a record into the RA_SITE_USES table.

  4. Japan: Create historical subledger balances.

Attach Core Financials Menus to Localization Menus

A responsibility and menu hierarchy were created for each country that has localization features; however, the menus for these responsibilities do not include any core Financials product menus. You must add core Financials product menus to the Oracle Financials for Asia/Pacific localization menus to use core functionality.

Use the Menus window to add core Financials product menus to the base menus for the responsibilities listed in this table:

Localization Responsibility Localization Base Menu
Australian Assets JA_AU_FA_NAVIGATE_GUI
Australian Inventory JA_AU_INV_NAVIGATE_GUI
Australian Purchasing JA_AU_PO_NAVIGATE_GUI
Korean Receivables JA_KR_AR_NAVIGATE_GUI
Singaporean General Ledger JA_SG_GL_NAVIGATE_GUI
Singaporean Payables JA_SG_AP_NAVIGATE_GUI
Singaporean Receivables JA_SG_AR_NAVIGATE_GUI
Taiwanese Payables JA_TW_AP_NAVIGATE_GUI
Taiwanese Receivables JA_TW_AR_NAVIGATE_GUI

Use this table to determine which core Financials menu to add to the localization base menu for each of the responsibility types:

For this responsibility type. . . Add this menu. . .
Oracle Assets FA_MAIN
Oracle General Ledger GL_SUPERUSER
Oracle Inventory INV_NAVIGATE
Oracle Payables AP_NAVIGATE_GUI12
Oracle Purchasing Purchasing SuperUser GUI
Oracle Receivables AR_NAVIGATE_GUI

Attach New Responsibilities to Users

You can access new responsibilities once you have installed localizations. The localized responsibilities for each country are organized by product.

Each localized responsibility has a localized menu and request group that provide access to country-specific functionality. Menus in country-specific responsibilities provide access to the country's windows; request groups provide access to the country's reports.

You must attach relevant responsibilities to the applications users to access localization functionality. If you create custom menus, use the country-specific menus attached to the localization responsibilities listed in Step 1. Attach Core Financials Menus to Localization Menus as a guide for granting users access to localization functionality.

To create new applications users, or to add or modify responsibilities for existing applications users:

  1. Log on to the System Administrator responsibility.

  2. Navigate to the Users window.

  3. Enter information for your users.

You should use country-specific responsibilities only when the relevant countries are fully installed. All functionality is designed and built for a specific country. Oracle supports country-specific functionality only for intended countries; functionality built for one country but used for another is not supported.

If you are using other base product responsibilities, or you have customized your own, refer to Appendix A, Oracle Financials for Asia/Pacific Request Groups as a guide for implementing your report security groups.

Insert a Record into the RA_SITE_USES Table

If you plan to use the Customer Balances Detail, Customer Balances Detail (180), or Customer Balances Summary subledger report, you must insert a record into the RA_SITE_USES table. Run this script to insert this record into the RA_SITE_USES table:

$ cd $JG_TOP/admin/sql
$ sqlplus <APPS username>/<APPS password> @jgzzisui.sql

Create Historical Subledger Balances

If you plan to use Oracle Financials for Asia/Pacific in Japan, then for subledger reporting you may need to retroactively create the summary balances for accounting periods that are already closed. This process is normally manually run after the accounting periods are closed. If you are installing localizations on an installation that already has closed accounting periods in Oracle Receivables or Oracle Payables, you may want to retroactively create the balances.

To retroactively create balances, use these concurrent programs created for opening and closing accounting periods in the Oracle Payables and Oracle Receivables subledgers:

You can access these programs from all localization responsibilities that were created as part of the installation or upgrade. Run each program once for each set of books. Use these programs to close all subledger periods that correspond to previously opened Oracle Payables and Oracle Receivables accounting periods that are now closed. You do not have to re-open the subledger balance periods first.

This table illustrates an example for Oracle Payables:

Period Status
Nov-96 Never Opened
Dec-96 Closed
Jan-97 Closed
Feb-97 Open
Mar-97 Never Opened

Run the concurrent program Subledger Balance Maintenance for Payables Accounting Periods with the values listed in this table:

Parameter Value
Period From: Dec-96
Period To: Jan-97
Open/Close: Close

Warning: Running these balance-creation programs effectively mimics the subledger to General Ledger posting programs. These programs may take a considerable amount of time to complete on some large systems as a result. If you wish to create historical balances on an implementation with especially large transaction numbers, you might need assistance from Oracle Consulting Services.
