Entering Voucher Items Automatically

Table 17: Configuration Parameter for Automatically Entering Voucher Items
Configuration parameter Meaning
Accounting\SimpleCollector Preprocessor relevant configuration parameter for controlling database model components, for automatically making vouchers for accounting. If the parameter is set, vouchers can be made automatically. Changes to the parameter require recompiling the database.
Accounting\SimpleCollector\ReportDir Configuration parameter containing the path for storing reports.

Enter separate voucher items into a voucher. One voucher item corresponds to a bookable IT service. For example, applications assigned to an employee or scheduled measurement of mailbox sizes can be consolidated in one voucher item. It is also possible to include data from external data sources for making vouchers. However, the methods used for this differ from company to company and, therefore, you should implement them to suit yours.

You can use the One Identity Manager Service collector function supplied with the process component VI.JobService.JobComponents.InvoiceComponent to automatically create voucher positions. Using the One Identity Manager reporting functionality, you can group vouchers in the form of an invoice and send then by email.

To simplify dealings with data imports and collection and if necessary to extend it, you can manage the accounting run using the task Start accounting run. All available events and the current processing status of a voucher are displayed on the form.

The executable events must be customized.

  • Add the executable events for each voucher type in the category Accounting | Basic configuration data | Accounting runs. The order in which the events are displayed on the form is given by the sort order property. For more information, see Accounting Runs.

The One Identity Manager default system contains examples of simple data collectors for voucher with the voucher type "Receipt" that can be controlled through the form. Use this to collect the data you want in the database, a new voucher item is created for each data set and linked to the voucher for which the event was triggered. There is also an example of how to generate an accounting report which can then be sent by email. Processes for the base object Invoice are defined for the events supplied. If you start and event from the form, it starts running the corresponding process.

Table 18: Data Collector in the Default System
Event Description Item
COLPERSONHASAPP Collects application assignments for employees. 0
COLWORKDESKHASAPP Collects application assignments for workdesks. 1
COLHARDWARE Collects devices. 2

Collects enabled Active Directory user accounts.

COLEX2KMAILBOX Collects enabled mailboxes. 4
COLADSHOMESIZE Collects home directory sizes. 5
COLEX2KMAILSIZE Collects mailbox sizes. 6
GENERATE_PROFITCENTER_REPORTS Generates reports for cost centers. 7

The processing state is stored in the table Invoice in column CollectorState. At the same time, one character of this status string represents the current processing state of an event. The string's index is defined through the sort order of the associated event. The characters have the following meaning:

Table 19: Permitted Status and Meaning
Character Name Description
Blank New/unknown Processing has not started. Initial state.
S Started This state is set by the form in order to immediately return a result to the user.
R Running This state is set by the process to signal that the import/collector is running.
F Complete The process was ended successfully.
E Error The process ended in failure.

To set a status in the processes, you can use the SQL procedure VI_Accounting_SetCollectorState. This procedure expects the following parameters:

Table 20: VI_Accounting_SetCollectorState Procedure Parameters
Parameter Meaning
uid_invoice Unique name of the voucher
eventname Event name
state Status

Calling example:

exec VI_Accounting_SetCollectorState '"&$UID_Invoice$&"','COLHARDWARE','R'

The database views used in the data collection processes can be used as templates for customizing database view.
