Disclosure Management Components

Disclosure Management consists of the following components:


Use Explorer to view your Disclosure Management report, and to open and add doclets to it. You can also assign permissions to Disclosure Management reports and doclets using Access Control Lists. See Performing Administrative Tasks.

Report Manager

Use Report Manager to manage and produce reports using Disclosure Management reports and doclets.

A Disclosure Management report acts as a container file for subdocuments called "doclets." A doclet is a separate Microsoft Word or Excel file that includes selected data that you want to include in the Disclosure Management report.


Doclets in Disclosure Management are not the same as doclets in Narrative Reporting, although the concepts are similar. Doclets in Narrative Reporting are individual pieces of a report that are assigned out to authors to provide the content in a report package. They are uploaded and maintained in the Narrative Reporting environment.

Doclets in Disclosure Management are files that contain only the data that you want to include in your report. They are uploaded and maintained in the Disclosure Management environment.

Disclosure Management enables you to leverage your last report as the starting point for your next report by using the Disclosure Management report feature. With a Disclosure Management report in Microsoft Word, you 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 Disclosure Management report.

A Disclosure Management document becomes a valid report when at least one doclet is inserted into it.

Taxonomy Manager

Use Taxonomy Manager to register and manage taxonomies. You can register a new taxonomy, edit existing taxonomies, and manage taxonomy properties, as well as upload, download and delete taxonomies. Taxonomy Manager is accessible from the Disclosure Management ribbon in Oracle Smart View for Office, and it is enabled once you have successfully logged on.

Taxonomy Designer Template

For open taxonomies, such as US GAAP, use the Excel-based Taxonomy Designer template to:

  • Import any extended taxonomy for transformation

  • Add, update, and move to conform to document creation

See Working with Taxonomy Designer

Mapping Tool

The Disclosure Management Mapping Tool maps information between the items of a taxonomy and the selected data values in an Office document. It is the central piece for most user interactions. Use the Mapping Tool to select taxonomies, manage mappings, add variables, and validate XBRL instance documents.

The Disclosure Management Mapping Tool:

  • Renders XBRL taxonomies and provides mapping functionality

  • Provides the ability to create, edit, and delete variables in doclets and Disclosure Management reports

  • Includes taxonomy search capability

  • Enables reviewing and validation of all mappings

Disclosure Management High Volume XBRL (for specific South American regulators only)

Disclosure Management High Volume XBRL is an XBRL instance generation engine, which is designed to accept a series of intermediate mapping files that have instructions to generate the XBRL instance.

Using Microsoft Excel, you can select a cell and apply annotations to it that define which XBRL tags get applied automatically for each hypercube intersection point. This tagging process enables you to generate the intermediate mapping file. This intermediate mapping file is fed to the Disclosure Management High Volume XBRL engine, which generates the XBRL instance.

An auto-tagging process uses the Microsoft Excel comment options to paint a targeted cell. You can apply tags for a selected cell or range of cells.
