pastedImage_0.pngDiscover object usage across your enterprise and understand the impact of EnterpriseOne updates.   

  • Wouldn’t it be great, if you could easily track who is accessing your ERP system?
  • What are the objects that are being accessed?
  • When is there peak load on the system, or what would be the best time to patch, based on low user volume?
  • Can you identify which customizations are unused, so that you could eliminate the need to maintain these customizations?
  • Is there a reliable way to determine what will be the impact on your environment, if you take an update, before taking the update?


It has been a long standing request from our Customer base to be able to track the usage of the JDE EnterpriseOne objects. With E1 Tools Release, it will be possible to track who is accessing which Applications and UBEs at what times and in which environments.


Object Tracking and Impact Analysis functionality answers it all.

  • Object tracking captures users accessing EnterpriseOne
  • Object Tracking captures  the objects accessed by users
  • Object Tracking has out of the box analytics component for system load
  • Impact Analysis identifies customization used in your environment
  • Impact Analysis identifies objects used, frequency of usage for impacted objects


The below pictorial representation depicts the Object usage Tracking functionality offered with Tools Release and its key Feature.



What is planned for the future:

  • BSFN/NER tracking
  • Turn ON/OFF at Object type/Product Code level
  • Exclusion list for commonly accessed objects
  • Summarization by User or Role
  • Mockup of the JET page with Analytics for Impact Analysis ( Picture Below)



With this analytics in place you can:

  • Plan your upgrades/updates more efficiently
  • Visual tool helps determine the impact of applying ESUs
  • Improved visibility of customizations
  • Plan for retrofits
  • Analyze testing needs

The assignment of a Tax Rate/Area to an Invoice, Sales Order, Voucher, or Purchase Order has been based upon the value provided in the Business Unit, Customer, or Supplier master. In the European Union, tax rates are different based upon the type of transaction as well as the origin and destination countries. This enhancement allows for an alternate method of assigning the Tax Rate/Area. This method is optional and can be turned on for specific companies as well as countries. The alternate tax rate/area assignment feature enables you to define the default tax rate/area to use based on a combination of the following fields:

  • Company
  • Ship From Country Code
  • Ship To Country Code
  • Transaction Source
  • Customer or Supplier Number


To find out what ESUs to apply for this feature check document JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Globalizations: Localizations, Translations, Certifications/Registrations (Doc ID 752291.1). The detailed description of Alternate Tax Rate Area Assignment is in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Applications Tax Processing Implementation Guide.
