Disclosure Management Components

This section includes information on the following Disclosure Management client and server components:

Client Components

This section includes information on the following client components of Disclosure Management:

Disclosure Management XBRL Add-in for Microsoft Office

The Disclosure Management add-in for Microsoft Office provides an interface to its features within the Microsoft Office framework (specifically, Microsoft Excel and Word). The Disclosure Management XBRL add-in uses the Smart View extensions API for integrate with Microsoft Office and accessing metadata from EPM data sources.

Disclosure Management Mapping Tool

The Disclosure Management Mapping Tool maps information between the items of a taxonomy and the selected data values in an Office document or Oracle Hyperion Financial Reporting. The Disclosure Management Mapping Tool is the central piece for most client-side user interactions. The Disclosure Management Mapping Tool is an add-in component for Office applications (Microsoft Word or Excel), and is bundled with Financial Reporting. Users can easily select taxonomies, manage mappings, add variables, and validate XBRL instance documents using the Disclosure Management Mapping Tool.

The Disclosure Management Mapping Tool:

  • Renders XBRL taxonomies and provides mapping functionality

  • Provides the ability to create, edit, and delete variables in doclets and Master Documents

  • Exposes most client-side user interactions

  • Is used by the Office Add-in and Financial Reporting

  • Provides a uniform user interface across all client applications

  • Includes taxonomy search capability

  • Enables reviewing and validation of all mappings

The add-in for Microsoft Word and Excel provides the following mapping features:

  • XBRL Taxonomy Concepts

  • XBRL Contexts

  • XBRL Units

  • XBRL Footnotes

  • Global Variables

Additionally, you can generate a document in iXBRL format, which enables you to view submissions in a human-readable format while retaining the machine-readable formats in the same document. An iXBRL document is an HTML document embedded with special XBRL tags, allowing the human-readable part in HTML and the machine-readable bits in XBRL.

The Mapping Manager provides an interface to select, change, and remove concept mappings associated with a given taxonomy which are stored in the Mapping Repository. It is shared with Financial Reporting, Smart View, and the Disclosure Management add-ins (Microsoft Word and Excel). The Mapping Manager is exposed in the Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management Workspace, and launched from the Microsoft Office Add-In in Word.


Non-taxonomy mappings such as XBRL contexts, units, and footnotes are stored locally within an Office document.

The Instance Document Viewer enables you to view instance documents in a human-readable format (that is, not the raw XML versions). Disclosure Management support three instance document viewers:

  • Raw XML Viewer

  • Generic Viewer

  • SEC Viewer

Additionally, instance documents cannot be generated from the Disclosure Management Mapping Tool in Financial Reporting HTML Preview.

Report Manager

Disclosure Management Report Manager report writers can use the Report Manager interface to manage and produce reports using Master Documents and doclets.

A Master Document acts as a container file for subdocuments called “doclets.” Using Master Documents Disclosure Management enables you to leverage your last report as the starting point for you next report by using the Master Document feature.

With a Master Document in Microsoft Word, an administrator can copy the last report, embed Microsoft Word and Excel sections into the document, rename it, and update the report view to the current Period or Year. Any registered Microsoft Word document may be used as a Master Document.

A Disclosure Management document becomes a Master Document when at least one doclet is inserted into it. A doclet is a separate Microsoft Word or Excel file that includes selected data that you want to include in the Master Document.

  To Migrate the repository:

  1. Open the Disclosure Management Master document from its current location.

  2. Disclosure Management recognizes that a migration is required and prompts the user.

  3. Click the Migrate button on the Disclosure Management ribbon.

  4. Choose a location in the repository where it should migrate.


Export your report, before migrating from release to

  To Register the repository:

  1. Open the new Master document in Microsoft Word.

  2. Click the Register button on the Disclosure Management ribbon.

  3. Name the report.

  4. Choose a location in the repository to load the Master document.

  5. Check out the document to use.

Managing Doclets

Once the Master document is successfully loaded into the repository, either through migration or registration, doclets are managed from within the Disclosure Management Report Manager.

Adding Doclets

Doclets are added to a Master document through the Report Manager using the Add New button.

When you click the Add New button you may choose a doclet from one of the following locations:

  • The file system – If this is chosen, this must be a regular non-DM document (Excel, Word) that will be saved to the repository and connected to the master

  • Another location from the DM repository such as a doclet from another Master document or a standalone document

  • It can't be a Master document

  • Doclet names must be unique

When you have finished adding doclets, click the Done button.

Save As Report

Doclets may be saved as a standalone report through the Report Manager using the Save As Report selection in the Actions menu.

When you click the Save As Report button, you must choose a location from the DM repository to save the report. DM reports may not be saved to the file system or other non-DM locations.

Content Management


Administrators must be able to assign ACLs to doclets and master documents.

Users should be able to have the following rights assigned:

  • No access

  • Read access

  • Write access

  • Delete access

  • Full access (document owners)

ACLs are not propagated. For, example if you apply an ACL in the Master Document, it does not propagate to the doclets. ACLs in Disclosure Management are only applied to artifacts such as doclets and Master Documents. ACLs do not apply to Reports.

ACL Explorer View


In order to search for folder names and doclet names you open the repostitory explorer and do a quick search in the upper right by either entering the name and <Enter> or click the magnifying glass.


In order to refine the search you click Advanced Search and can search by Name, Owner, Modified Date, and Type.

Advanced Search

Double click on the filename to open the repository.

Disclosure Management Integration With Financial Reporting, Smart View (APS) and Data Source Access

This section includes information on:

Financial Reporting Web Application Service

The Financial Reporting Web application runs, stores, and schedules reports and batches. For more information, see the Oracle Hyperion Financial Reporting, Administrator's Guide.

Smart View (APS) and Data Source Access

You can import data from Oracle Hyperion data sources such as Oracle Hyperion Financial Management, Oracle Hyperion Planning, and Oracle Essbase, which can be imported to Microsoft Word or Excel document through the Smart View Analytic Provider Services (APS). After the data is in the Office document, the data source members can be associated with XBRL concepts through the Disclosure Management Mapping Tool. When this association occurs, the XBRL concepts are recognized from the data source member when it is part of a Financial Reporting grid or another Office document. Therefore a “data source XBRL map” can be associated once and reused in Office documents and Financial Reporting grids.

Middle-Tier Services

The Disclosure Management web application interacts with several middle-tier components that can exist on a distributed environment. This section highlights the most important middle-tier components:

Disclosure Management Web Application Service

A J2EE-based Web application provides services to most of the components in Disclosure Management. This service interacts with client-layer components, other middle-tier services, and data storage components.


Disclosure Management database sources includes the Mapping Reporting and Oracle Hyperion data sources:

Mapping Repository

The Mapping Repository is a server-side application responsible for storing and retrieving the XBRL taxonomy mappings created by the Mapping Tool. When a user creates, modifies, or deletes a mapping, the mappings are centrally stored in the Mapping Repository. Users cannot load and view mappings directly from the Mapping Repository.

Oracle Hyperion Data Sources

Disclosure Management supports Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) data sources such as Oracle Hyperion Planning, Financial Management, and Oracle Essbase. Data sources can be reused and imported into Microsoft Word or Excel documents through Oracle Smart View for Office.

You can import data from non-EPM sources, such as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems , which can be imported to Microsoft Word or Excel.

Disclosure Management XBRL Taxonomy Designer

Disclosure Management XBRL Taxonomy Designer is a desktop application designed to build, extend, and maintain XBRL taxonomies. The Disclosure Management XBRL Taxonomy Designer user interface helps you to perform these task: Create multiple views, including concept relationships, calculations, languages, and properties that stay synchronized as the taxonomy is browsed. Disclosure Management XBRL Taxonomy Designer supports the most current XBRL 2.1 specification, including dimensions and tuples.

The Disclosure Management XBRL Taxonomy Designer is installed with the Disclosure Management application. For more information, see Disclosure Management XBRL Taxonomy Designer online help.
