A control account is a summary account in the general ledger. It can also be referred to as an adjustment account or controlling account.
In our APIcenter Wizard we have a setting where you can set the default Customer Control Account. Go to the Settings Tab and click on the 'Ledger Settings' to collapse this section.
Up next, toggle the 'Make Use Of A Default Customer Control Account' radio button, which will make a number of fields accessible.
- default customer control account - Here you need to insert the value you want the Customer Control Account field to fallback on if no value for customer control account is provided from the source system
- Force The Usage Of The Customer Control Account - If you toggle this radio button, you will always send the value you have entered in the 'default customer control account'-input field to the Target System.
- Use Default Customer Control Account Mapping Table - If the value of the control account differ from source system to target system, you can link these values to eachother as seen in the Screenshot below. If you want all the customers where their control account in the source system is for example 1200, to send a control account of 8000 to the target system, you have to insert it as the example below.
To make the above settings work, you will have to connect the fields that are linked with the values from the example above by adding this in the Data Mapping.
Go to the 'Data Mapping' Tab in our APIcenter wizard.
Scroll down till you find the field we in the core call controlAccount and map the fields that your systems API's are using for handling control accounts.
