    The Difference of Transaction Attributes, Sources and User Transaction Identifiers in Fusion Accounting Hub
    Summary:
    The Difference of Transaction Attributes, Sources and User Transaction Identifiers in Fusion Accounting Hub
    Content:

    Hi, can someone help me out in understanding the difference of Transaction Attributes, Sources and User Transaction Identifiers in Fusion Accounting Hub (FAH)? I noticed that FAH uses a lot of terms that are somewhat interchangeable, hence, it sometimes i get confused on which is which.

    For Example: Source System and Event Class and the User-defined Subledger Name are all the same. is this correct?

    As for my question, from what I understand:

    1. The User Transaction Identifiers are setup using the Spreadsheet Upload mechanism at the Header Level (Transaction information worksheet).
    2. These User Transaction Identifiers are also Transaction Attributes because they can be utilized to create Accounting Rules
    3. And Sources are basically the Transaction Attributes, because they can be referenced are a source to create Accounting Rules

    Is my understanding correct?

      Hi Juan Miguel,

      My understanding is that Source System and User-defined Subledger Name are the same, however a Subledger has many even classes (just like in AP, there is one for Invoices, Payments...etc.)
      As for the difference between User Transaction Identifiers, Transaction Attributes and Source, I would say the User Transaction Identifiers are more restrictive because this is what uniquely identifies a transaction. Transaction Attributes and Sources are the same thing and can include elements of the transaction that do not uniquely identify it (in order to add rules, as you correctly stated).

      Thanks
