Create a Wiki page to document/review the types and gl account types used by the GL posting services

      Description

      Add to the following Wiki page:

      http://docs.ofbiz.org/display/OFBIZ/GL+auto+posting+services

      information about all the existing auto posting services (implemented in the last week) to help document/review the types and gl account types used by the GL posting services.

      I've already created an example/template for one of the service.
      Every time a new service will be created we will document it in that page.
      In this way it will be easier to get help and review from the community (I'm pretty sure that some of the types will need some adjustments... I am not an accountant)

        The task is about completing the wiki page:

        http://docs.ofbiz.org/display/OFBIZ/GL+auto+posting+services

        with information about all the accouning services that start with createAcctgTransFor* i.e. the auto posting services.
        In fact they all share the same pattern:
        1) each of them is triggered by some business events in OFBiz (inventory is received, invoice is issued etc...)
        2) each of them create an accounting transaction composed by:
        2.1) one header: AcctgTrans
        2.2) two or more entries (D/C): AcctgTransEntry
        For 2.1, each posting service sets an acctgTransTypeId for the header (AcctgTrans) and, instead of hardcoding the GL Account Id to which the D/C entries are posted, it uses a GL Account Type Id (glAccountTypeId) that is then mapped to a real glAccountId (configured during setup for the organization).
        We would like to document:
        a) the acctgTransTypeId used by each service
        b) together with the glAccountTypeId used for Debit and Credit entries
        c) (at the bottom of the page) we would like to document the demo GL configuration (and complete it) by specifying the glAccountTypeId<-->glAccountId used for the demo "Company" organization.

        Hi

        This is something I'm working on in the Wiki:

        http://docs.ofbiz.org/display/OFBIZ/Default+Accounting+Transactions

        Could this help or at least to highlight the default accounts the various transactions generate?

        Thanks
        Sharan
