Hierarchies for financial reporting: Must be published to Essbase cubes. Child values in these hierarchies cannot roll up to different parents within a hierarchy as this functionality is not support when publishing such hierarchies to Essbase.
Hierarchies for allocations: Must be published to Essbase cubes. Used with Calculation Manager in creating allocation rules.
Hierarchies for cross validation rules, revaluation and chart of accounts mapping:
- Created within the same hierarchy and must be associated with a chart of accounts instance.
- You can only associate one hierarchy with a chart of accounts instance, per segment.
Such hierarchies can have the same child to roll up to different parents.
- Do not publish to the Essbase cube since multiple child assignments are not supported in the Essbase cube.
- NOTE: these hierarchies will not be available for reporting and allocations.
Security Rules: You can specify the tree and tree version to be used while defining the data security condition.
