The two screens listed above allow you to review the two halves of an asset entry’s information in the AM Interface Staging tables; these are the final staging tables data resides in prior to being created as Asset entries in the AM module. Like with the earlier interface table, you can filter your search results by Business Unit and Load Status to only return “Pending” items for your college.

Note: A Run Control ID is an identifier that, when paired with your User ID, uniquely identifies the process that you are running. The Run Control ID defines parameters that are used when a process is run. These parameters ensure that when a process runs in the background, the system does not prompt you for additional values.
- Select the Add button.

Note: A Process Instance number appears when the screen refreshes to the run control page. This number helps you identify the process you have run when you check its status.
