MJE setups

Based on your business needs, the following configuration might be required for MJE:

  • Enable certain validations by configuring predefined MJE profiles.

  • Create MJE approval rules so that approval is required to release the holds on MJE.

  • Select the accounting segments for which MJE is to be uploaded.

  • Upload SOB ID and currency code so that this information can be automatically populated in MJE upload template.

Configure MJE profiles

Profiles are created and associated with MJE to enable certain validations during MJE upload. The following predefined profiles are provided in RevPro, which are specific for MJE:

  • SOB_VALIDATION: Enable validation for ERP set of books.

  • CC_ID_VALIDATION: Enable validation for account segments.

  • EX_RATE_VALIDATION: Enable validation for exchange rates.

If your upstream system is not Oracle EBS, to validate the exchange rates, the exchange rates must be populated into RevPro standard table RPRO_EX_RATES with the minimum data points including RATE_TYPE, FROM_CURRENCY, TO_CURRENCY, START_DATE, END_DATE, and EX_RATE during RevPro implementation process.
