The calculation is typically run at least once per calendar period. This generates results data that can be viewed for each phase based on compensation processing for each period. Using the associated results workspaces, compensation can be tracked from transactions to payments for specific periods.
Once a calculation is run, the Pipeline Details pane displays a summary of results, as well as information regarding Stage Statistics, Errors and Logs.
The Stage Statistics tab shows information about the processing of each individual stage.
The Errors tab shows brief information about any errors produced by the pipeline run. If you see an error, this tab shows specific information that helps with troubleshooting.
The Logs tab contains links to each log file generated by the pipeline. As we saw earlier, each stage produces a log file. You can use log files to help diagnose pipeline and rule behavior, and to browse errors, warnings, and processing statistics.
To view log files from the Pipeline Results workspace:
- Select the Logs tab
- Expand the stage containing the log you wish to see.
- Select the link to the log file.
This downloads the log as a text file.
Once the calculation is complete, the results of the compensation rules can be viewed in their respective workspaces. Results data is associated with the period for which the pipeline was run.
Each type of compensation rule has its own results workspace, which is populated with the output for each position assignment for the period. You can see the results workspaces under the Calculation menu.
Some results can be edited manually in the workspace, while others can only be updated by updating a rule and re-running Compensate and Pay.
Editable results are Orders, Transactions, Credits, and Deposits.
Read-only results are Measurements, Incentives, Commissions, and Payments.
