Supporting references are a powerful tool to allow capture of journal entries with transaction attributes. You can use these tags to report on entries, reconcile entries back to source systems or even maintain balances at the attribute level.

Define supporting references once and reuse by assigning sources of different event classes or source systems to the same supporting reference.

You can assign one source per event class to each supporting reference. The subledger or source system uses the supporting reference name to store the source values. This standardizes supporting reference information, even if it comes from disparate source systems.

Supporting references can be defined using either of these options (located on tabs):

Select the balances option in the definition of the supporting reference, to have balances only maintained when the supporting reference is assigned.

If balances are maintained for a supporting reference, they are carried forward into the next fiscal year, for all Profit and Loss account types.

A limit of thirty supporting references with balances can be defined. You can consider adding more source assignments to predefined supporting references, rather than creating a new one.

No limit to the number of supporting references without balances is defined.

This note details how to inquire, create, and modify supporting references for Fusion Cost Management using Functional Setup Manager (FSM).
