General Ledger (GL) configuration is the process of setting up the GL accounts and their structure in an INI file. This includes defining the chart of accounts, account groups, and other GL master data. It also involves configuring the GL to meet the specific needs of the business, such as defining account format and reporting requirements.
Who will configure the INI file in system?
The INI file in a system is typically configured by Surecomp (Professional services) and responsible for collecting the data and format from the customer, installing in the INI File and configuring in the system.
How this INI file configuration works in DOKA
The INI file is a text file that is typically located in the DOKA. It contains a list of key-value pairs, that is When the account number is null, the liability code is populated in the expected way, by combining the values of the Liability Code defined in ini +Account Type +Ext key configuration options.
In detail Here is a breakdown of the meaning of each step:
- Save the parties without adding account details: The GL configuration in system can work if there is no account information saved under party in DBIPTY.
- The system will search for the .ini file: if no account has been set up for the transaction parties. This currently applies to import letters of credit (LCs) and guarantees.
- Use hardcoded defaults from product: If no default value is found in the config file, then the system uses the hardcoded defaults from the product. These defaults are typically defined in the source code of the product.
