Create groomed lines for cost models with no data source

If there is no data source for the cost model that you have selected in the Data definition stage of the Financial Management workbench, there is no cleansing process either. In the bucketing stage, there is no left pane with accounts. In such cases, you can create or edit the groomed lines in the Bucket Amount Line form by clicking the edit icon in the subbuckets.

Before you begin

Role required: cost_transparency_admin or cost_transparency_analyst


  1. Navigate to Financial Modeling > Workbench.
  2. In the Bucketing stage, click the edit (The edit icon) icon of a sub-bucket that you want to add the groomed lines to.
    The Bucket Amount Line form appears.
  3. On the form, fill in the form fields.
