Managing Entities

During the initial implementation of the Tax Provision application, you must update the Entity dimension to include Legal Entities for the application. In addition, at the beginning of each provisioning period, you may need to add new entity details. You can maintain entities using one of these methods:

  • Metadata Manager—Create additional accounts or update existing accounts using the Win32 tool for Classic applications. For details on Metadata Manager, see the Oracle Hyperion Financial Management Administrator's Guide.

  • Performance Management Architect Dimension Library—Create additional accounts or update existing accounts for the Oracle Hyperion EPM Architect application. For details on the Dimension Library, see the Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management Architect Administrator's Guide.

  • Load Application Elements—Create an external APP or XML metadata file with the information using a text editor, Microsoft Excel, or an XML editor. For file format and syntax information, see the Oracle Hyperion Financial Management Administrator’s Guide.
