Expense lines and expense allocations

The Expense lines application tracks costs and record expenses incurred. Expense allocations let you associate expenses with items such as users, groups, or departments.

Expense lines are a key component of cost management because they can be generated from any application and are used to allocate expenses to business entities. Expense lines can be created manually or generated automatically when costs are created by scheduled processing.

Users with the financial_mgmt_admin and financial_mgmt_user roles can work with expense lines and expense allocation rules.

To use expense allocation rules, activate the Cost Management application.
