Bucket assignments

Setting up an allocation means assigning the expenses in a bucket to an account in a segment or to several accounts in a segment.

The expenses in the bucket automatically roll up based on the allocation rules you created for rollups. When you assign expenses, the application creates an allocation rule with the prefix BCK:ALLC: in the name and gives it an order value of 10 more than the highest value, not including the values for the rules created for rollups. Rules that the application creates for rollups have a default value of 1,000,000. The application also creates a method that specifies the percentage allocated to the account.
