Oracle Assets Additions API
You can use the Additions API to add assets directly via PL/SQL rather than through the normal Oracle Assets interfaces. The Additions API uses the FA_ADDITION_PUB.DO_ADDITION procedure. You can use this API if you have a custom interface that makes it difficult to use with the existing asset additions interfaces in Oracle Assets.
Oracle Assets also allows you to add assets using any of the following methods:
- QuickAdditions: You use the QuickAdditions process to quickly enter ordinary assets when you must enter them manually. You can enter minimal information in the QuickAdditions window, and the remaining asset information defaults from the asset category, book, and the date placed in service.
- Detail Additions: You use the Detail Additions process to manuallyadd complex assets which the QuickAdditions process does not handle, for example, assets that have a salvage value or assets with more than one assignments.
- Mass Additions: You use the Mass Additions process to add assets automatically from an external source. Create assets from one or more invoice distribution lines in Oracle Payables, CIP asset lines in Oracle Projects, asset information from another assets system, or information from any other feeder system using the interface.
Alternate Ledger Currency (ALC)
If you have set up alternate ledger currency , when you add or modify assets using an Oracle Assets API, the API copies the transactions to the reporting currencies automatically. Invoice rounding issues are avoided by using the API to drive the alternate ledger currency accounting for both the ledger and reporting currencies.
If you have checked the Allow CIP Assets check box on the Book Controls window of a tax book, when you add CIP assets using the Additions API, the API automatically adds those CIP assets to that tax book at the same time that they are added to the corporate book.
Passing Null Values
You must pass special values in order to null the values of BONUS_RULE, CEILING_NAME, or GROUP_ASSET_ID. If you pass a NULL value directly for these values, the API will automatically default to the value setup for the category. The table below shows the value that must be passed for the field value to be NULL.
