The settings you can configure are listed below.

 

Instance Creation

The settings below describe the Instance Creation section of the Settings dialog box.

Add 'generated by' comment

Specifies if the exported XBRL instances should contain a Generated by comment. Set this option to False if your reporting authority does not allow comments in the created reports. The default value is True.

 

Create @id attribute on facts

According to the EBA XBRL Filing Rules (Section 3.7), unused @id attributes on facts should not be included in the report unless the reporter needs them. In the EBA Add-in, @id attributes are added to all facts, because this allows navigating to cells with validation errors or warnings. By default, the option Create @id attribute on facts is set to True. If you select False, unused @id attributes on facts will not be included in the XBRL report.

 

Create streamable XBRL

Specifies if the exported XBRL instances should be streamable and contain the xbrl-streamable-instance processing instruction. Set this option to False if your reporting authority does not allow processing instructions in reports. The default value is True.

 

Treat invalid cell values as

Specifies whether invalid cell values should be treated as validation errors or warnings. The default value is Error.

 

Treat missing Identifier as

After you create a new report, the EBA Filing Pane contains a property called Identifier which is empty by default. This option specifies whether an empty Identifier property should trigger a validation error or a warning. The default value is Error.

 

Misc

The setting below describes the Misc section of the Settings dialog box.

Preferred Label Language

Specifies the preferred language to be used in the headers of created worksheets. Note that the respective label resources must be defined in the taxonomy for this setting to take effect. The default value is en.

 

Table Rendering

The setting below describes the Table Rendering section of the Settings dialog box.

Enhanced Dimensional Validity

The default and recommended setting for the Enhanced Dimensional Validity option is True. If you encounter problems with data submission to your reporting authority, set this option to False.

 

Validation

The setting below describes the Validation section of the Settings dialog box.

EBA XBRL Filing Rules

Specifies if the additional EBA XBRL filing rules (as specified by the document EBA XBRL Filing Rules) should be checked. The default value is Enabled.
