DRAFT: Transaction Data Source


The Transaction data source provides the transaction details of every business object that has a direct financial impact on your subscription business. You can use the Transaction data source to calculate net payments, calculate net billing, or summarize accounts receivable activity for a period.

The Transaction data source is an advanced data source. Advanced data sources enable you to easily create reports that would be very difficult or impossible to create using basic data sources. Advanced data sources are only available for use in reports. See TODO for more information.

In the Transaction data source, each Transaction corresponds to one of the following objects:

  • Invoice Item
  • Taxation Item
  • Invoice Item Adjustment
  • Invoice Adjustment
  • Invoice Payment
  • Refund Invoice Payment
  • Credit Balance Adjustment

The Transaction fields represent properties that are common to these objects, such as the amount, the change in account balance, and the date. You can use the "Transaction: Transaction Type" field to determine which object a Transaction corresponds to.
