Article Summary

As actors communicate with each other via accounts, transactions and formulas are used for account interaction. Transactions change actor states and account balances. Transactions can be made both manually and automatically.

In the Transactions section, you can create a manual transaction, view the list of transactions for the selected account-currency pair, apply quick filters, or configure and save more complex filters.
You can also view the details of a specific transaction to view its linked parent or child transactions.

Transactions View Menu

To view information on transactions or make a manual transaction, open the Simulator->Transactions section of your workspace menu.
Alternatively, you can access the transaction history of a selected account-currency pair from the Graphs or Actors bag sections by going to the actor's Details and opening the Accounts tab. You can also view transactions for an account by selecting Show transactions in the Account menu (see the transaction viewing and managing section below).

Depending on the granted rights in the Transactions section, you can view transactions based on the following properties:

If the original date and creation date/time do not match for a transaction, both will be displayed in the transactions list;
  • Extra parameters (optional) - adds an extra parameter in the Key-Value format to the transaction. It is similar to the Corezoid code editor available in nodes, you can use the following interfaces for adding an extra parameter:

      You can view the added extra parameters in the Transaction details menu.
  • Add parameter (optional) - clicking on this field allows adding another extra parameter.

After configuring all the needed transaction parameters click on the Make transaction button to make the transaction.

After you've made a transaction for the specified amount, the Total & Fee values of the accounts involved will change accordingly.

Making a Transaction. String Accounts

For String type accounts, the transaction creation menu is similar, except it has the String field instead of the Amount. In this field, you can specify the string you want to add or subtract from the selected string account:

make string transaction single 5.34 high.png

Depending on the credit or debit type you've selected when making a transaction, the string you've specified for the transaction will be displayed with the corresponding type in the transactions list and in the transaction details menu:

made string transactions 5.34.png

String Account Total & Fee

For a String type account, the Total & Fee value displayed in transactions list and details represents the string (multiple strings) value of the last transaction made against the account, regardless of whether it was a debit or credit transaction.

Making a transaction against a string account that contains multiple values allows you to add or subtract multiple strings by specifying them in the String field separated by the Enter key:

make string transaction multiple 5.34.png

The added or subtracted multiple strings will be grouped together when displayed in the transactions list and in the account Total, Debit, Credit drop-down details with the corresponding transaction type indication:

Transactions listAccount Total, Debit, Credit
make string transaction multiple 5.34 trans list high.pngmake string transaction multiple 5.34 acc total high.png

Making a Transaction. Actor ID Accounts

For actor ID type accounts, the transaction field is Actor ID, and you can specify (select from the list) an actor you want to add or subtract from the selected account:

make actor transaction single 5.34.png

Actor ID Account Total & Fee

For an Actor ID type account, the Total & Fee value displayed in transactions list and details represents the actor (multiple actors) name of the last transaction made against the account, regardless of whether it was a debit or credit transaction.

Similarly, when making a transaction against an actor ID type account that contains multiple values, you can add or subtract multiple actors by specifying them in the Actor ID field, separated by Enter.

In the same manner, single and multiple actors are grouped and displayed with the corresponding transaction type in the transactions list and account details:

Transactions listAccount Total, Debit, Credit
make actor transaction mult 5.34 trans list.pngmake actor transaction multiple 5.34 acc details.png

Making a Corrective transaction

For each numeric transaction, you can create an adjustment transaction, also known as a –°orrection transaction. A Correction transaction is used to adjust the amount of a selected transaction by the specified amount.

To make a Corrective transaction for a transaction, in the transactions list (in the Transactions section or Accounts->Currency menu->Show transactions in the Accounts section, or Accounts tab->Show transactions in the Graphs, Actors bag sections), click on the menu symbol (three dots) to the left of the transaction you need and select Create corrective transaction from the menu:

The window for creating a corrective transaction will open:

In this window, configure the following parameters for your corrective transaction:

  • Corrective transaction sign - select whether the corrective transaction amount will be positive (+) or negative (-) to adjust the current account balance, respectively;
  • Corrective value - specify the corrective transaction amount;
    For your convenience, below you can see the Current balance and Balance after correction values for the account, which show the information in real-time according to the corrective transaction sign and value you specify;
  • Comment (optional) - enter any text comment for the corrective transaction.
Corrective transactions for String and Actor ID account types

Corrective transactions are not available for String and Actor ID account types.

After you've specified the needed parameters, click Make transaction:

The original transaction amount will be adjusted accordingly, together with the account balance. The new corrective transaction will be available for management and view in the Linked transactions list of the original transaction details menu:
