A summary journal entry is a summary of Zuora transaction amounts organized by accounting code and general ledger segments. A segment adds more reporting granularity through business dimensions, such as country or product. This article describes key features and illustrates how to create summary journal entries from a journal run.
A journal run collects transactions for a selected period and generates a summary of amounts in journal entry format. The journal run picks up segments by a GL segmentation rule and further summarizes these amounts by these segments.
Journal runs can process transactions from open or closed accounting periods. The following Zuora transactions are supported for summary journal entries:
See Journal Runs for details on journal runs and supported transaction types.
