Can Fiscal Time Periods be XOGGED?

I am trying to setup a XOG for fiscal periods so that we can automatically setup future ones rather than doing it manually. I have tried xogging out the Entity that we are using, but I don't see fiscal periods described on it at all. Is this something that is possible?

I used the sample file named 'entity_read.xml' to read the information from the Entity, but it does not generate any information for Fiscal Time Periods.


The Fiscal Time Periods can be XOGGED into the application. The Fiscal Time Periods were previously referred to as GL Periods in earlier versions of the software.

If you have an existing Entity with at least one Fiscal Time Period defined, you can use the 'entity_read.xml' file to see how the WRITE file is constructed for the Fiscal Time Periods.

Example from the sample entity read file:

'myEntity' is the Entity that exists in my implementation.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<NikuDataBus xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="./src/webroot/WEB-INF/xog/xsd/nikuxog_entity.xsd">
	<Header version="14.3" action="read" objectType="entity" externalSource="NIKU">
   <!-- Use include_glperiods, if you need to read fiscal time periods for entity -->
	 <args name="include_glperiods" value="true"/>
   <!-- Use include_plandefaults, if you need to read plan defaults for entity -->
	 <args name="include_plandefaults" value="true"/>
		<Filter name="entity" criteria="EQUALS">myEntity</Filter>

 The output generated will include the Fiscal Periods (glperiods) and the output can serve as a model for adding new fiscal periods to XOG into the Entity.
