    You can find out more about which business objects are available for auditing in the What's New document for 18C.

    By default, auditing is disabled for all applications. You must configure the business objects and select the attributes before enabling audit. If you enable audit without configuring the business objects, auditing remains inactive. To enable and manage audit, you need to use the Manage Audit Policies task from the Application Extensions functional area within your offering in Setup Manager. To do this you must have a role with the assigned privilege Manage Audit Policies.

    Hi Rajib,

    No, these products are not the same.

    Accounting Hub Reporting Cloud is an extended reporting tool. It is used where you have an existing accounting system (such as EBS GL) which you want to keep as your system of record. You would use Accounting Hub Reporting Cloud to bring balance information into a Cloud Ledger for more extensive reporting and analysis eg using the Essbase cube for Smart View and FR Reports, using account monitor infolets and sunburst visualizations etc. The data sheet is here: http://www.oracle.com/us/products/applications/accounting-hub-cloud-datasheet-2997786.pdf

    Accounting Hub Cloud is a new product available in R13. You would use it when you want to bring transaction data from external systems into a Financials Cloud GL (or alternatively an EBS or PSFT GL if that's the GL you are using) so that all your systems are integrated. In this scenario, Accounting Hub Cloud takes care of the accounting from your source systems, and Cloud GL will be your central accounting system of record (ie the two are used in conjunction with each other). The data sheet is here: https://cloud.oracle.com/opc/saas/ah/datasheets/oracle-accounting-hub-cloud.pdf

    Regarding your second point, if you already have ERP Cloud GL, you would not need Accounting Hub Reporting Cloud, as ERP Cloud GL also contains all the reporting offerings which this product provides. 

    Very short summary: Accounting Hub Reporting Cloud is for reporting on balances from your existing EBS GL, Accounting Hub Cloud is for integration of transactions from source systems into your Oracle GL.

    There is some documentation here on AP Recurring Invoices created via spreadsheet. I hope this helps.

    Hi Beth,

    I'd recommend sharing your ideas in the Idea Lab right here on Customer Connect. Other Oracle customers can see, comment and vote on your ideas - and Oracle absolutely looks at these too.

    With regards, Zoë

    I'm not aware of any white paper showing examples of how to use this feature but you can find more detailed information in the "Implementing Common Features for Financials and Project Portfolio Management" user guide in the Manage Audit Policies chapter. 

    Hope this has the extra information you're looking for.

    With regards, Zoe

    Hi Paul

    Jon is correct, Bill Management will give customers self-service capabilities. It is in Release 13 Update 17B. 

    You can find out more here: http://www.oracle.com/webfolder/technetwork/tutorials/tutorial/cloud/r13/wn/r13-financials-wn.htm#F38

    With thanks, Zoë

    Thanks for the feedback! 

    There will be more Opt-In features delivered in each update (some of them with expiry dates) and so I plan to add these into the document each time we have a new update. It will be available at roughly the same time as the What's New is published, since this document links to the feature details in the What's New for more information. 

    I plan to include all Financials and Accounting Hub features with expiry dates in future updates (even if that update is quite far off) as they are useful for planning, but will remove features from this list in the release after the opt-in has expired.

    Hi Darrell,

    Budget allocation is not supported via Calc Manager. The "Budget" scenario in the GL cube is only for reporting against actuals, you can only change the budget by loading in another budget scenario.

    You might want to look at Planning and Budgeting Cloud for your budget preparation.

    With thanks, Zoë

    The budget date on the invoice distribution determines which control budget is impacted and the accounting date determines which period the encumbrance journal entry is created.  If the control budget period or the encumbrance year is not open Budgetary Control will fail or Create Accounting will fail.

    You will find information about the upgrade schedule in the Cloud Applications Update Policy. For example, this document has more information about monthly maintenance packs, which are optional and include fixes for reported issues which you might want more frequently than waiting for the quarterly update. The quarterly update will include these cumulative fixes from the monthly maintenance pack plus new and enhanced features.

    Oracle Support Document 1966109.1 (Oracle Applications Cloud – Fusion Applications Update Policy) can be found at: https://support.oracle.com/epmos/faces/DocumentDisplay?id=1966109.1

    I hope that gives you the information you are looking for.

    With thanks, Zoe

    Accounting Hub supports any external source system. The latest data sheet is here: https://cloud.oracle.com/opc/saas/ah/datasheets/oracle-accounting-hub-cloud.pdf

    I'm not sure what the source is for the point you have quoted. Perhaps you're referring to Accounting Hub Reporting Cloud? This offering is no longer available, but it did provide extended reporting eg for E-Business Suite Customers.

    With regards, Zoë

    Hi Kim,

    Not my area of expertise so I'm afraid I cannot help, but are you referring to Enterprise Contracts? If so, this is part of Engagement Cloud, which you will find within the Customer Experience forums. You could try posting your questions there.

    With regards, Zoë

    SOAR is an initiative owned by Oracle Consulting - the press release is here

    It starts with a discovery questionnaire to help determine the most appropriate SOAR package for the business based on existing application footprint, with automated tools and utilities to analyze setup and migrate data (and optional tailored offerings if needed) to create a complete packaged solution for upgrade. During the upgrade process there are apps to help with progress: an implementation toolkit for step-by-step guidance and a customer dashboard for monitoring overall progress.  

    You may be able to get more detail from the dedicated SOAR page oracle.com/soar

    Hi Wendy,

    I've attached a screenshot of the pull-down list at the top of the Release Readiness pages. You will be able to find all the R13 content there, on two separate pages for 2017 and 2018. 

    With regards, Zoe
