Using automatic processing flows and flow actions

Updated on January 18, 2022

The accounting straight-through processing (STP) flows and flow actions are designed and structured to process accounting without manual intervention. STP accounting supports the following:

  • Adjustments with actions of Adjust and WriteOff.
  • Suspense with actions of Open, Raise, Lower, Close, Offset, and WriteOff.

Automatic flows require a parameter used to specify which rule to use. The parameter is a name property. Referencing that parameter, the flow determines the other key parts (rule class, action, and work object class).

Manual flow actions can also determine the rule class, action, and work object class, and then display the Short Description from every step rule that can be used by the flow action (including security validation). By default, the product selects the transaction information from the rule with the highest likelihood value, and lets you select any other valid step rules from a selection box that includes the rules and their short descriptions.

When you create new step rules, you must update flows to call the rules, or add rules to give you more choices than those defined for automatic flows. In this case, the Likelihood value becomes significant.
