Accounting step rule fields

Updated on January 18, 2022
FieldDescription
Short DescriptionRequired. Short description of the rule. This value is displayed during manual accounting in the list of step rules from which you can select.
Step tab
Class of the StepThe class of the page that holds the step data. Specify a Rule-Obj-class name that is a concrete class that is a child of class PegaAcct- Step-. This could be Adjustment, Open, Raise, Lower, or Close.
Activity for Verification FlowAn activity at the class of the step that calls a verification flow. If blank, the system automatically bypasses verification. One activity delivered with the product specifies a verification flow based on amount values. The system also has four verification flows (no verification required, one level, two levels, or three levels of verification required), which can be used, based on the amount of the step.
Modelto Create StepA data transform rule name at the class of the step. If specified, the system creates the step page based on the model. The step rules in the PegaAcct ruleset do not use a model.
Validate ActivityReserved for future use.
LikelihoodAn integer between 0 and 100 used to preselect the most likely step rule (the one with the highest number) during the manual flow actions that create accounting steps.

The flow actions find all step rules that apply to the flow action. For example, a flow action of Open Payable on an encoding error finds all instances of Rule-PegaAcct-Financial-Payable for a specific class (and its parent classes) with an action of Open, and presents them in a selection box so you can choose which step to use. The default selection is taken from the rule in the list with the highest likelihood value.

Transactions tab
GroupSpecifies if this transaction is part of a group of transactions so that only one transaction in the group is used when the accounting is created. In manual processing, you select which transaction from the group to choose (the Label property is displayed in a selection box so that you can choose only one transaction). In automatic processing, the first transaction in the group is selected, so the order is significant.
LabelThis value appears in the window during the processing of manual accounting creation flow actions, so you can identify the transaction.
DR / CRIndicates whether the transaction is a debit or a credit. The order of the transactions in the rule is the order in which they are displayed during manual accounting creation flow actions. Establish an order and follow it throughout all step definitions.
RoleA unique string identifier for each transaction in this step. Its value is placed in to a Role property in the transaction of the step, and may be used to find or report on the transaction.
Txn ClassThe class of the page that holds the transaction data; specify a class name that is a concrete class that is a child of class PegaAcct-Txn-.
Pymt Type

Name of Rule-PegaAcct-Financial-PaymentType rule to use for this transaction. The payment type rule associate correspondence with the transaction.

Default Account FromParty: The value comes from the Party role in the work object (The role is specified in the DefaultAccountValue property.) Chart of Accounts: The value comes from a specified internal account. The value of the DefaultAccountValue property is used in a lookup to the FinChartOfAccts map value rule at the class of the work object; this returns a key to an Internal Account record. A second map value rule is used in the class of the work object to determine the actual party class in which this key should be looked up. It finds the party class by looking up the InternalAccount value in the FinWorkPoolClasses map value rule.
Account From ValueSpecifies a party role if the Default Account From value is a Party. Specifies an internal account name (as defined in the FinChartOfAccts map value rule) if the Default Account From value is Chart of Accounts.
Protect Account?If selected, the Account Name and Number fields are protected, and you cannot enter values during manual accounting creation. If not selected, you can modify the values in these fields during manual accounting creation.
Default Amount FromThis specifies where to acquire the amount value for this transaction:

Property:use the value of the property specified in the DefaultAmountValue property.

Literal: use the value of the DefaultAmountValue property.

Amount From ValueSpecifies a property reference if DefaultAmountFrom is a property. A reference can be any fully-qualified property reference from any page, but if the property reference is not dot-qualified, then it assumes the property will be found on the top level of the work object page.

Specifies an actual amount number value if Default Amount From is Literal.

Do not use quotes, $, or commas (that is, specify 1000.00 and not $1,000.00 or $1000.00 or “1000.00”).

Default CurrencySpecifies the currency code to default for the transaction amount.
