    1. When you want to set up a statutory application, the system tracks hierarchies for statutory reporting. Statutory applications have an upper-level static hierarchy associated with a Group or Currency-type dimension, called Groups.
    2. The Ownership Manager in the Consolidation Central module enables you to create and manage ownership- based hierarchies used for performing statutory consolidations.


      An ownership-based hierarchy combines Groups and Entity members, where entities can be differently connected to or disconnected from groups according to Category and Time. Groups are nodes whereas entities are base members.


      You define ownership-based hierarchies in the system to set up and report on entity hierarchies that cannot be managed by a fixed hierarchy.


      While management reporting entity structures are fixed, and children roll up 100% to their associated parent, ownership-based hierarchies support the legal structure of statutory consolidations that cannot be managed by a fixed hierarchy.


      Ownership-based hierarchies are only available in consolidation type models. When you want to report this hierarchy then you would use that option.


      Thanks & Regards,

      Geeta

    Hello, The below is a bit of background per my understanding prior to explaining the option's functionality:

    i. BPC only permits postings at base levels and performs calculations to aggregate the base levels at parent nodes.

    ii. Scope/Group dimension does not contain a hierarchy but rather an attribute (Parent Group) and has ownership stored at all levels (including those which would be assumed as parent nodes).

    iii. EPM treats this ParentGroup attribute as a parent and displays scope within a hierarchy format.

    iv. The Scope dimension also provides the option to link the scopes to entities. This is stored within a property called ENTITY (Some companies leave this property blank)

    v. When Scope and company are used within an axis, EPM looks to this property to link the Scope and entity dimensions for ownership and will overwrite the entity dimension with its value (by scope).

    vi. Since this property was blank, EPM was overwriting the selected entities with a null value and was thus defaulting both scope and entity to the context value.

    vii. This is expected EPM functionality.

    With the background out of the way. The option ‘Use Ownership-based Hierarchy’: 1. When this option is checked, the above holds true (company is overwritten with the ENTITY property value). 2. When this option is unchecked, scope and company may be used independently within the report allowing reporting as we are accustom to be performed.

    Thanks, Will
