EGL9.2: Enhancement - Journal Generator Creates Journals by Transaction ID (Doc ID 1989397.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 17, 2015

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise FIN General Ledger - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Issue:
------------------
The customer wants to import journals from non Peoplesoft applications to Peoplesoft General Ledger using Journal Generator, not splitted by GL business units or Application Business units ( the two options standard delivered), taking into consideration that he uses only one business unit for all the journals and the PSFT creates one journal entry for all.

The following examples is  provided to interact with Journal Generator for non-PS external systems:
A generic accounting entry definition named GENERIC.
A journal generator template named GENERIC.
A generic accounting entry table (PS_JGEN_ACCT_ENTRY) used as an interface between external systems and Journal Generator.


Actual Behavior:
--------------------------------
This process creates only one journal for all the data that had not been previously journal generated.


Expected Behavior
-----------------------------------
The customer wants to have multiple journals created based on another identifier within the table and lines.
The identifier to be used to determine different journals is Transaction ID.


Replication Steps:
-----------------------------
1. Load 3rd party accounting entry data to generic accounting entry table PS_JGEN_ACCT_ENTRY.
   - Accounting entries are recorded against same business unit but have difference Transaction ID.
2. Run Journal Generator
