Oracle Financials for the Americas Post-Install Steps

Post-Install Steps for the Americas

Complete these post-install steps for Oracle Financials for the Americas installations.

  1. Attach core Financials menus to localization menus.

  2. Attach new responsibilities to users.

  3. Argentina or Colombia: Enable the Invoice Distribution Withholdings window.

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 the Americas 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:

Country Localization Responsibility Localization Base Menu
Argentina Argentine Payables JL_AR_AP_NAVIGATE_GUI12
Argentina Argentine Receivables JL_AR_AR_NAVIGATE_GUI
Argentina Argentine Fixed Assets JL_AR_FA_MAIN
Argentina Argentine General Ledger JL_AR_GL_SUPERUSER
Brazil Brazilian Payables JL_BR_AP_NAVIGATE_GUI12
Brazil Brazilian Receivables JL_BR_AR_NAVIGATE_GUI
Brazil Brazilian General Ledger JL_BR_GL_SUPERUSER
Brazil Brazilian Inventory INV_NAVIGATE
Brazil Brazilian Purchasing JL_BR_PO_NAVIGATE_GUI
Chile Chilean Payables JL_CL_AP_NAVIGATE_GUI12
Chile Chilean Receivables JL_CL_AR_NAVIGATE_GUI
Chile Chilean Fixed Assets JL_CL_FA_NAVIGATE_GUI
Chile Chilean General Ledger JL_CL_GL_SUPERUSER
Colombia Colombian Payables JL_CO_AP_NAVIGATE_GUI12
Colombia Colombian Receivables JL_CO_AR_NAVIGATE
Colombia Colombian Fixed Assets JL_CO_FA_MAIN
Colombia Colombian General Ledger JL_CO_GL_SUPERUSER
Mexico Mexican Fixed Assets JL_MX_FA_MAIN

Note: The Brazilian Inventory responsibility already accesses the standard product menu.

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

Example: Add Oracle Payables base menu to Argentine Payables base menu

This example shows how to add a core Financials product menu to a localization base menu.

  1. Navigate to the Menus window from the System Administrator responsibility.

  2. Query the localization menu. In this example, query the JL_AR_AP_NAVIGATE_GUI12 Argentine Payables menu.

  3. Enter the appropriate core Financials menu in the Submenu field. In this example, enter AP_NAVIGATE_GUI12 for Oracle Payables.

  4. Enter appropriate values in the Navigator Prompt and Description fields. In this example, enter Oracle Payables.

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.

With the exception of the Brazilian Inventory responsibility, which accesses the standard product menu, 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 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 B, Oracle Financials for the Americas Request Groups as a guide for implementing your report security groups.

Enable the Invoice Distribution Withholdings Window

If you plan to use the withholding tax solution that was built for Oracle Payables for Argentina or Oracle Payables for Colombia, your system administrator must enable the Invoice Distribution Withholdings window off the Tools menu for your Argentine or Colombian Payables responsibilities.

To enable the Invoice Distribution Withholdings window:

  1. Navigate to the Menus window.

  2. In the Menu field, query the localization base menu that you want. Use JL_AR_AP_NAVIGATE_GUI12 for Argentina or JL_CO_AP_NAVIGATE_GUI12 for Colombia.

  3. Navigate to a new line.

  4. In the Function column, enter the menu function Define Invoice Distribution Withholdings.
