Drilldown is performed from Journal lines in General Ledger, that means data is stored in the
table GL_JE_LINES. The link between SLA data and data in GL is through the table
2. This data is populated in GL_IMPORT_REFERENCES only if "Import References"? option is
selected in the Journal source definition.
3. Once Populated, the data can be mapped from GL_JE_LINES to GL_IMPORT_REFERENCES
table using the columns je_header_id and je_lines_num.
4. From subledger side , SLA Journal line data is stored in the table XLA_AE_LINES, which is
connected with its header which stored in XLA_AE_HEADERS.
5. Then data in GL_IMPORT_REFERENCES can be mapped to XLA_AE_LINES using the columns
gl_sl_link_id and gl_sl_link_table.
6. When Transfer happen, typically it can be done either Summary or Detail mode, which
typically configure when you define the Event Class, which is attached to the Journal Line Type.
o Take a note, if the transfer is done in Summary mode, then the Reference columns will not be
populated in any of these table GL_IMPORT_REFERENCES or GL_JE_LINES
7. Then Journal Line Type is then attached to the Journal Line Definition, which internally
hookup with Subledger Accounting Method.
8. Data from SLA, which comes to GL_INTERFACE, can then be imported in either Summary or
Detail Mode.
9. The option for summary or details is configure in the Accounting Setup Manager
10. If you are importing data in Summary mode, then the Reference columns are populated in
GL_IMPORT_REFERENCES (provided data has come in Detail mode from SLA), while GL_JE_LINES
will not have the Reference columns populated.
11. On the other hand if data is imported in Detail mode, both GL_IMPORT_REFERENCES and
GL_JE_LINES tables will have the Reference columns populated (again provided the data has
come in Detail mode from SLA).
12. Table XLA_AE_LINES Column gl_transfer_mode_code gives the information for the transfer
mode from SLA to GL.
13. For the Journal Import mode, the values for specific applications is stored in the table
XLA_LEDGER_OPTIONS which stores the setup for various applications for the Ledgers defined.
The column indicating the Journal Import mode is transfer_to_gl_mode_code, which have three
values as P (Summarized by Period), A(Summarized by Accounting Date) or D(No Summarization
i.e. Detail mode)
14. The XLA_TRIAL_BALANCES table is populated after successful journal import.
15. You can use the different SLA reports for pulling SLA data.
16. Last but not the least, drilldown will work from GL to all the Subledgers that are using the
SLA Engine

For AP, there is a column in AP_INVOICE_DISTRIBUTIONS_ALL called DISTRIBUTION_ID. The foreign key

If you are talking about AR, the table is RA_CUST_TRX_LINES_GL_DIST_ALL and the column is
CUST_TRX_LINE_GL_DIST_ID that is tied to SOURCE_DISTRIBUTION_ID_NUM_1. So the column in
XLA_DISTRIBUTION_LINKS holds the distribution id for whatever the source is but the actual value it
references in the source app varies by application.
