This is a step by step tutorial on how to set up an EDMCS application using the Financial Consolidation and Close application type.

Navigate to the Applications dashboard and click Register in the top right.


From the application type menu, select Financial Consolidation and Close and name the new application. In this example, I have named it “FCCS1”. A description is optional.


Add the connection to your external system. Name the connection and add the Instance Location URL, Username, and Password for the external environment.


After the connection is added, select Next to review the connection. If all information is correct, select Create.


Enter the configuration set up information needed including if the external connection is a Multi-Currency application. Select Next to continue.

Alias Tables will be “default” unless others have been created in FCCS.


In this section you will add all Dimensions from your external FCCS environment. Select Add and Next to continue.

In Dimension Type, you can choose from Account, Entity, Movement, or Custom. Any other dimensions that are not Account, Entity, or Movement will use the Custom type.


Review the summary of your application and ensure all fields are correct. To complete the application, select Apply.

You can modify your application after its creation by going to the Applications dashboard-> Click the three dots under Actions-> and select Modify Registration.
