This is a record for an enhancement to add the ability to map gl codes from Mifos to an accounting systems GL codes in the integration tool we're building. By adding this feature, we could get around some of the following issues
1. Running into mistakes in building GL Code after Mifos is running in production
2. Removing issues integrating with new accounting systems or new GL Codes from an existing Mifos installation that was based on the default GL Code
3. Remove some of the barriers to a 5 day deployment by removing the need for having a GL Code in Mifos that exactly matches the accounting system. Instead, the deployment is done with a robust and flexible GL Code (to be designed) and the mapping is done at the integration point
This is an enhancement idea that has come up in discussions. While ideally it would be nice to have a simple accounting export tool, that hasn't really seemed to come to fruition yet. This may be a piece of work worth doing as it will save us a lot of headache and difficulties in deployments down the line (or even in existing deployments).
