Registration of an entity includes specifying the name and the logical ID of the enterprise application that is the source or destination of the business documents. An accounting entity code is also specified, if applicable.

The registration of an entity with an accounting entity code is especially required for an enterprise application that publishes business documents at accounting entity level. IGFC enables the registration of an entity even if the enterprise application does not publish AccountingEntity business document. In this case, the logical ID and accounting entity must be manually specified.

Logical IDs identify the enterprise application to which the business document belongs. IGFC also uses this information to distinguish similar accounting entities with different source or destination applications.

Note: For IGFC CE, registration includes specifying the tenant of the source or the destination of the business document.

IGFC also requires that the entity is registered before processing business documents, except for the AccountingEntity business document. For entities processing journal entry transactions, registration also includes identifying whether the journal uses signed credit amounts and if the entity requires a balancing entry. One or more entities can be registered.
