Account allocation groups support generation of multiple account allocation entries, which is useful for organizations with many allocations that must run on the same interval and/or with dependencies.

You can also use account allocation groups to set up the order for sequential processing, where one allocation is dependent on the results of a prior one.

Parameters

Name Required Type Description
object Required string Use GLACCTALLOCATIONGRP

List Account Allocation Groups

query

List the record number, name, and group error processing method in use for each account allocation group:

        <field>GRPERRORPROCESSINGMETHOD</field>
    </select>
</query>

Parameters

Name Required Type Description
object Required string Use GLACCTALLOCATIONGRP
select Required sequence One or more field names and an optional aggregate function such as count or sum. Returning all fields is not supported.
filter Optional object Query filter expression. Check the value of a single field using operators such as equalto/like, or multiple fields using and/or. Query fields on related objects using the dot operator (for example, VENDOR.CREDITLIMIT on APBILL).
orderby Optional object Provide an order element with a field name and choose an ascending or descending sort order, for example:
<order>

        <descending/>
</order>
options Optional object Set the caseinsensitive element to true for a case-insensitive query:
    <caseinsensitive>true</caseinsensitive>
In a multi-entity company, set the showprivate element to true to query data in private entities:
   <showprivate>true</showprivate>
pagesize Optional integer Custom page size between 1 and 2000 items (Default: 100)
offset Optional integer Point at which to start indexing into records (Default: 0)

Parameters

Name Required Type Description

query Fields

Name Required Type Description
GRPERRORPROCESSINGMETHOD Optional string Group error processing method in use. Use E for groups set to Stop if a group member in the sequence fails or S for groups set to Skip and continue if a group in the sequence fails.

Parameters

Name Required Type Description
GLACCTALLOCATIONGRP Required object Object to create

GLACCTALLOCATIONGRP

Name Required Type Description
NAME Required string Group name for the account allocation group
DESCRIPTION Required string Description of the account allocation group
STATUS Optional string Status of the group. Use active for Active or inactive for Inactive. (Default: active)

If the grouping is for convenience and sequential processing is not important, you can use Skip and continue if a group in the sequence fails.
GLACCTALLOCATIONGRPMEMBERS Required GLACCTALLOCATIONGRPMEMBER[1...n] Account allocation group members. If one allocation is dependent on the completion of a previous allocation, order the members accordingly.

Update Account Allocation Group

update

Building on the example above that creates an allocation group, updates the array of members to include the original ones plus a new one (Allocation-3):

<update>
    <GLACCTALLOCATIONGRP>
        <RECORDNO>1</RECORDNO>
        <GLACCTALLOCATIONGRPMEMBERS>
            <GLACCTALLOCATIONGRPMEMBER>
                <GLACCTALLOCATIONID>Allocation-1</GLACCTALLOCATIONID>
            </GLACCTALLOCATIONGRPMEMBER>
            <GLACCTALLOCATIONGRPMEMBER>
                <GLACCTALLOCATIONID>Allocation-2</GLACCTALLOCATIONID>
            </GLACCTALLOCATIONGRPMEMBER>
            <GLACCTALLOCATIONGRPMEMBER>
                <GLACCTALLOCATIONID>Allocation-3</GLACCTALLOCATIONID>
            </GLACCTALLOCATIONGRPMEMBER>
        </GLACCTALLOCATIONGRPMEMBERS>
