Acumatica Security



this post is dedicated to understanding how security in Acumatica works. If to be precisive security of accounts. 

Let's say you need in some way filter accounts for some user according to configuration at row level security screen ( GL104000 ).

In my case I had following records in database which correspondent to the following numbers:

Relation group mask : 16; 0; 0; 0

User group mask: 159; 96; 0; 0

Account group mask: 16; 0; 0; 0

How to join them? They are joined not by separated table, which has relations between groups and accounts or groups and users, but with usage of bit mask. It's very effective way to join and is much faster then holding adta in db. But the most complicated from viewpoint of understanding. Lets convert already mentioned numbers into bit masks:

Relation group mask :

00010000; 00000000; 00000000; 00000000

User group mask:

10011111; 11000000; 00000000; 00000000

Account group mask:

00010000; 00000000; 00000000; 00000000

From the bit mask you can notice that there is common bit between first byte in Account group mask and User group mask. Also there is common bit between "User group mask" and Relation group mask which means that user belongs to the group, and account belongs to the group. In order to work with them I wrote the following code:

 public List<Account> GetAvailableCashAccounts()
     var result = new List<Account>();
     var userID = PXAccess.GetUserID();
     var user = GetUsers().First(u => u.PKID == userID);
     var allAccounts = GetAccounts();
     var groups = GetGroups();
     foreach (var account in allAccounts)
           foreach (var relationGroup in groups)
             for (var i = 0; i < relationGroup.GroupMask.Length && i < account.GroupMask.Length; i++)
                  if ((relationGroup.GroupMask[i] & account.GroupMask[i]) == 0) continue;
                  if ((account.GroupMask[i] & user.GroupMask[i]) == 0 || result.Find(a => a.AccountCD.Equals(account.AccountCD)) != null) continue;
       return result;

Copy Entry Types Via Web Services In Acumatica From One Instance Into Another


Hello everybody.

Today I want to share how to copy Entty Types items in acumaticca from one instance into another instance.

The first step was to create import export settings in both instances of acumatica as described in acumatica manual similar to this screenshot:

The second step was to create project, which I decided to make as windows forms application with the following input fields:

For the button click at entry types write the following:

           var context = new ImportEt.Screen
                    CookieContainer = new CookieContainer(), AllowAutoRedirect = true, EnableDecompression = true, Timeout = 1000000, Url = txtFrom.Text

           var lgRes = context.Login(txtUserName.Text, txtPassword.Text);
           if (lgRes.Code == ErrorCode.OK)
                var ca203000 = context.CA203000GetSchema();

                var export = context.CA203000Export(
                    new Command[]
                            ca203000.EntryType.EntryTypeID, ca203000.EntryType.DisbReceipt, ca203000.EntryType.EntryTypeDescription, ca203000.EntryType.Module, 
ca203000.EntryType.BusinessAccount, ca203000.EntryType.DefaultOffsetAccount, ca203000.EntryType.UseForPaymentsReclassification,
ca203000.EntryType.ReclassificationAccount, ca203000.EntryType.DeductFromPayment }, null, 0, false, false); context.Url = txtTo.Text; var lgRes2 = context.Login(txtUserName.Text, txtPassword.Text); if (lgRes2.Code == ErrorCode.OK) { ca203000 = context.CA203000GetSchema(); context.CA203000Clear(); foreach (var et in export) { var ca203000ImportResults = context.CA203000Submit( new Command[] { new Value { Value = et[0], LinkedCommand = ca203000.EntryType.EntryTypeID}, new Value { Value = et[1], LinkedCommand = ca203000.EntryType.DisbReceipt }, new Value { Value = et[2], LinkedCommand = ca203000.EntryType.EntryTypeDescription }, new Value { Value = et[3], LinkedCommand = ca203000.EntryType.Module }, new Value { Value = et[4], LinkedCommand = ca203000.EntryType.BusinessAccount }, new Value { Value = et[5], LinkedCommand = ca203000.EntryType.DefaultOffsetAccount }, new Value { Value = et[6], LinkedCommand = ca203000.EntryType.UseForPaymentsReclassification }, new Value { Value = et[7], LinkedCommand = ca203000.EntryType.ReclassificationAccount }, new Value { Value = et[8], LinkedCommand = ca203000.EntryType.DeductFromPayment }, ca203000.Actions.Save }); } } }


All activities in Acumatica are done via interface context, whic is of type screen. 

As for me, the easiest way to get some data is via command "screenID" + export. In my code you can see construction CA203000Export. Inside of it you can point to id of screen, data of which you want to receive. For example CA203000Export.

The simplest way to send something to acumatica another instance is function "screen id" + "Submit". In my code you can see method CA203000Submit. Fields Value is self-explanatory as for me. The most important and hard to understand for me was LinkedCommand. It can be name of the field. That means values has to be putted into a field. It can be action name to push on and etc. 

Another important facet of mentioned code is Actions.Save. If it is not mentioned, than code will post data to web services, but they wil not be saved.


P.S.    source code

Autonumbering In Acumatica

Autonumbering in Acumatica

Today I want to share with you how I implemented autonumbering feature in acumatica for page CA304000.

My task originally was the following: add autonumbering feature to the "Document Ref" field with following rules:

  a. step of incrementing is 1

  b. length of field should be six characters. For example 000001, 000002, ... ,  000223,  001024, ..., and so on

First of all I want to state that my way of adding much simpler then "canonical" ( according to acumatica manuals ) way of adding autonumbering.  If you wish to use standard way you should accomplish so many steps that I should admit that my brain wasn't able to boil them in one project. 

Instead of this I used the following steps.

1. In the page CA304000 I found class, which provides data for the page. It looks like this:

<px:PXDataSource ID="ds" runat="server" Visible="True" Width="100%" PrimaryView="CAAdjRecords" TypeName="PX.Objects.CA.CATranEntry">

2. Created extention of class in the following way:

public class CATranEntryExt : PXGraphExtension<CATranEntry>

3. Located method which returns list of records for the page CA304000, it was the method: CAAdjRecords.

4. According to rules of acumatica, if I want to modify behaviour of method CAAdjRecords I should implement method caadjrecords.


protected virtual IEnumerable caadjrecords()

6. Implemented method which digs in DB, and returns needed number in string format:

protected string GetExtRefNbr()
            var maxNbr = 1;
            foreach (var cAddjRec in PXSelect<CAAdj>.Select(Base, new byte[0]))
                var extRefNbr = ((CAAdj) cAddjRec).ExtRefNbr;
                int curNbr = 0;
                if (int.TryParse(extRefNbr, out curNbr))
                    maxNbr = curNbr + 1;
            var result = maxNbr.ToString(CultureInfo.InvariantCulture).PadLeft(defaultLength, '0');
            return result;

7. Used GetExtRefNbr in the method caadjrecords in the following way:

protected virtual IEnumerable caadjrecords()
            var res = new List<CAAdj>();
            var availableCashAccounts = GetAvailableCashAccounts();

            foreach (
                var doc in
                    PXSelect<CAAdj, Where<CAAdj.draft, Equal<False>>>.Select(Base, new byte[0]))
                if (((CAAdj)doc).RefNbr.Contains("NEW"))
                    ((CAAdj) doc).ExtRefNbr = GetExtRefNbr();
            return res;

8. Enjoyed results:

the field Document Ref.: was inserted automatically.

    It's me, again hahaha

    I read your articule

    I read your article but I get it ... in my case I have a custom screen that I want to generate the automatic numerical value, but I do not know how.

    could you it teach me how you do?

  • docotor said

    Describe a bit more what kind of autonumbering you need?

  • angie said


    I have selector that it have to search registers about your numbering

    for example, how invoice screen it do...

    I sent an email to you

Acumatica Active Directory



today I want to share just simple record of how to join acumatica and your Active Directory.

For example you have the following data:

Active directory url:LDAP://RT1:389

User name, password: 123

For cases like this you need the following record in your web.config file:

<activeDirectory enabled="true" path="RT1:389" user="dot\yura_zale" password="123" />
