Initial Document Creation

Oracle Account Reconciliation Cloud, August Update

This document outlines the announcements and considerations in the upcoming Oracle Account Reconciliation Cloud update.

Announcements And New Features

Monthly Update Schedule

We would like to inform you of the upcoming monthly update for your Oracle Cloud environments. We will apply the latest updates to your test environment on Friday, August 4, 2017 and to your production environment on Friday, August 18, 2017. The update will be applied during your normal daily maintenance window.

The Oracle Help Center, which provides access to updated documentation, will also be available on August 4, 2017.

NOTE: Account Reconciliation Cloud no longer supports migration of snapshots from the latest service version to an earlier service version (for example, when moving snapshots between test and production pods during the window when test is upgraded before production.)  Migration between the same versions will still be supported.  Some objects, such as Profiles, may still be moved from the latest to an earlier version outside of migration snapshots by exporting them from the latest service version and importing them into the earlier version.

Upload an Attachment to Multiple Reconciliations or Transactions

Users now have the ability to upload a File attachment or URL reference to multiple reconciliations or transactions at one time from the Reconciliation List or Transactions List in Reconciliation Compliance.

Imports Allow Choice of File Delimiter (Comma or Tab)

In Reconciliation Compliance, a File Delimiter field was added to import dialogs to allow users to select either a Comma or Tab delimiter.

View Additional Rows by Using a Compact View Toggle Switch

In Reconciliation Compliance, users can display additional rows when in List or Group View by using a Compact toggle switch.

Bulk Actions Available on Reconciliations or Transactions

A Service Administrator can use a new Configuration Setting in Reconciliation Compliance to allow users to perform Submit, Approve, Reject, Claim or Release on multiple reconciliations or transactions at one time.

Many Type Rules in Transaction Matching Now Support Data Source Attribute in Adjustment Details

When an Adjustment is created and the attribute of the Adjustment is copied from the Many side of a 1-Many or Many-1 match, the attribute value gets copied from the first transaction that was loaded of the Many.

New REST APIs for Reconciliation Compliance and Transaction Matching

You can now use a REST API to import balances within Reconciliation Compliance. In Transaction Matching, you can use a REST API to import pre-mapped balances, pre-mapped transactions and to run auto match. See the Account Reconciliation Cloud section of the Oracle® Cloud REST API for Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud guide.

Processing Oracle General Ledger Adjustment Periods in Data Management

Data Management now has the option to include adjustment periods from an Oracle General Ledger source system in the Oracle Financials Cloud when loading balances to an EPM cloud application

Data Management Integration with the Financials Accounting Hub (FAH) and Financial Accounting Hub Reporting Cloud Service (FAHRCS)
