    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.

    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

    You may want to look at the OTBI subject area "Budgetary Control - Balances Real Time". This contains information about budget, consumption, reservation category, available fund balances and control budget details.

    You don't specify which release you are using, but this subject area became available in R13 Update 17B.

    With regards, Zoë

    Hi Niall

    What's New Content should be available 2 weeks after the New Feature Summaries - so for 18C they will be published on 21 September. 

    With thanks, 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 Chris,

    Have you seen the section Centralized Payment Processing Across Business Units: Explained in the Payables user guide on docs.oracle.com

    Please take a look as it contains some information on setup that may help you.

    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

    Jeff,

    This does not directly answer your question and I apologise for that, but you might find it helpful to attend the Customer Connect Event on 25 April on Configurable Workflow Notifications. There will be experts from product development available on the call who can give advice in addition to anything you get from the SR.

    Hi Bala,

    Yes this is still the case in Release 13.

    Your quarterly update will include both new features eg the things documented in the 18A/B New Features Summary and What's New document on the Release Readiness pages, plus it will also include the mandatory quarterly maintenance patches as you had in Release 12 to fix issues. You can still opt-in to monthly maintenance in R13 if needed.

    The difference is that now both your new features (which used to be delivered via upgrades) and problem resolutions (which were delivered via monthly / quarterly maintenance) are now rolled into one single quarterly update, to give greater service availability.  

    With regards, Zoë

    You can find out more about Accounting Hub here: https://cloud.oracle.com/en_US/accounting-hub-cloud

    If a customer is upgrading from R12 -> R13 they will not get Accounting Hub automatically included, it is a separate license from Financials Cloud. It has a different purpose: to integrate third party transaction systems and create the accounting for them in your primary general ledger (either in Financials Cloud or a different GL system) 

    You will find screenshots of new UIs in the What's New document available on the Release Readiness pages here: https://cloud.oracle.com/en_US/saas/readiness?offering=financials . Please be aware that there are two pages for the R13 features - one for the 2017 updates (17B/C/D) and one for the 2018 updates (18A/B), so depending on which version of R13 your customer is upgrading to, they will need to make sure they look at both pages, as there are new features included with every update. This does seem like a lot of new features, but the difference with the R13 quarterly updates is that many of the features are opt-in enabled, so your customer only needs to switch on the ones that they want. Opt-in does not apply to all Financials features in R13, but the What's New document makes it clear which ones are opt-in enabled, and how to enable them.

    Hi Bala,

    1. 18B will be available in your August/September/October update cycle (whichever of those months is allocated to you for updates)

    2. The 18A quarterly update is not only to resolve issues, it also contains new features. The same is true for 18B and all quarterly updates in Release 13 - there will be some new features included as well as the maintenance fixes.You can see which new features are in 18A vs 18B on the Release Readiness portal here: https://cloud.oracle.com/en_US/saas/readiness/overview   

    3. You cannot skip quarterly updates. You also cannot go from 18A direct to 18C, you will have to take the 18B update first. 

    With regards, Zoë

    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.

    We handle pricing in ERP Cloud similar to EBS without advanced pricing.  

    Adding in advanced pricing is not yet on the near term roadmap.
