Selecting Scenarios

The selected scenario members are used in the Oracle Financial Management Analytics Dashboards or Reports.

  To set the Scenario Selection:

  1. In Selected Members box, select the Member column cell for which you want to map the member, and then select the required scenario member from Available Members.

    Note:

    Scenario Actual is present by default. You can modify the default scenario name.

  2. Optional: Click To add a row to scenario to add a row.

  3. In the Scenario column, enter the Scenario name, and then, from Available Members, map the Financial Management Scenario member.

    Perform steps 1–3 for each scenario member.

    Note:

    You can create unlimited scenario aliases.

    Two different scenario aliases can be mapped to the same Financial Management scenario member. For example: Scenario alias name CurrentActual is mapped to Actual2012. Similarly, you can map another scenario alias name RealActual to the same Financial Management scenario member Actual2012. The scenario member selections are not mutually exclusive.

    Note:

    Click To delete a scenario to delete a row. You can delete only the scenario members that are not used by Oracle Financial Management Analytics Packaged Dashboards or Reports.

    Note:

    As a returning user, you can change the existing HFM scenario mapping to a different HFM Scenario Member. Let us consider an example: Scenario alias name CurrentActual is mapped to Actual2012 of HFM scenario member. You can change the existing HFM scenario mapping from Actual2012 to Actual2013.

  4. Click Next.

    The HFM Scenario Selection dialog box is displayed.
