Goal

The BRM documentation needs some change in the following chapter:
Managing Payments and A/R · Managing Accounts Receivable
Configuring adjustments, disputes, and settlements
Performing adjustments with your custom application
Adjusting events
Categorizing unbilled event-level adjustments in G/L reports

To report adjustments as unbilled in the G/L, use PCM_OP_AR_EVENT_ADJUSTMENT to create shadow event objects instead of adjustment event objects. A shadow event object is a new version of the original event object. It is identical to the original event object with the exception of a new creation timestamp and a new balance impact resulting from the event adjustment.

To create shadow adjustments, set the value of the PIN_FLD_FLAGS field in the PIN_FLD_EVENTS array to 1 (PIN_AR_RECORD_SHADOW_ADJUSTMENT_EVENT) on the PCM_OP_AR_EVENT_ADJUSTMENT input flist. The shadow object is created only if the original event to be adjusted has not been billed or posted to a G/L report.
