ERP/2.50/Developers Guide/Reference/Entity Model/Organization


The Organization Tab is used to define an Organization. Each Organization has a Key and Name and optionally a Description. When adding a new organization, you must re-login to be able to access the new organization. Please note that you will not be able to create new entities in this window if you have not set defaults for all mandatory values!

To the database table (AD_Org) of this entity.

Back to the entity model.



Property Column Constraints Type Description
id* AD_Org_ID Mandatory
Max Length: 32
java.lang.String An organization is a unit of your client or legal entity - examples are store, department. You can share data between organizations.
client AD_Client_ID Mandatory ADClient A Client is a company or a legal entity. You cannot share data between Clients.
active IsActive Mandatory java.lang.Boolean There are two methods of making records unavailable in the system: One is to delete the record, the other is to de-activate the record. A de-activated record is not available for selection, but available for reporting. There are two reasons for de-activating and not deleting records:

(1) The system requires the record for auditing purposes. (2) The record is referenced by other records. E.g., you cannot delete a Business Partner, if there are existing invoices for it. By de-activating the Business Partner you prevent it from being used in future transactions.

creationDate Created Mandatory java.util.Date The Created field indicates the date that this record was created.
createdBy CreatedBy Mandatory ADUser The Created By field indicates the user who created this record.
updated Updated Mandatory java.util.Date The Updated field indicates the date that this record was updated.
updatedBy UpdatedBy Mandatory ADUser The Updated By field indicates the user who updated this record.
searchKey Value Mandatory
Max Length: 40
java.lang.String A search key allows for a fast method of finding a particular record. If you leave the search key empty, the system automatically creates a numeric number originating from a document sequence defined in the "Document Sequence" window. The sequence naming convention follows a rule "DocumentNo_TableName", where TableName is the actual name of the database table (e.g. C_Order).

Usually, company's internal identifiers for various records (products, customers, etc) are stored here.

name# Name Mandatory
Max Length: 60
java.lang.String A more descriptive identifier (that does need to be unique) of a record/document that is used as a default search option along with the search key (that is unique and mostly shorter). It is up to 60 characters in length.
description Description Max Length: 255 java.lang.String A description is limited to 255 characters.
summaryLevel IsSummary Mandatory java.lang.Boolean A summary entity represents a branch in a tree rather than an end-node. Summary entities are used for reporting and do not have own values.
organizationType AD_Orgtype_ID Mandatory OrganizationType Each organization belongs to an organization type defined in the system
allowPeriodControl IsPeriodControlAllowed Mandatory java.lang.Boolean An organization that is checked as business unit or as a legal entity can open and close a period control.
calendar C_Calendar_ID FinancialMgmtCalendar The Calendar uniquely identifies an accounting calendar. Multiple calendars can be used. For example you may need a standard calendar that runs from Jan 1 to Dec 31 and a fiscal calendar that runs from July 1 to June 30.
ready IsReady Mandatory java.lang.Boolean While the organization is not ready, it can be moved inside the organization's tree. A not ready organization can not execute transactions.
