    Hierarchy Structure

    The search hierarchy structure is used to store codes and to access the code information, for example:

    • CodeListHierarchyAE with hierarchy tenant, accounting entity, and location: This search hierarchy structure is used in the code list TimeZonesOwn to determine the time zone of a user who is logged on to the application.
    • CodeListHierarchyTradingPartner with hierarchy tenant and trading partner: This search hierarchy structure is used in the code list UnitsOfMeasures to determine the trading partner-specific code mapping for units of measures.
    When editing, click the Lookup button and select a hierarchy from the predefined hierarchy code lists.
    Each code list must be assigned to a functional area of the application. If a code list is used by several functional areas, it must be assigned to the area Infor Automotive Exchange Common.
    When editing, select a functional area to which the code list is assigned from the drop-down list.
    System Code List
    A system code list is essential to run the application and must not be changed.
    When editing, select the check box to define the code list as a system code list.
    A selected check box shows that codes are defined for the code list on the Manage Codes page.
