Delete Cost Type Assignments from a Synced Acumatica Cloud ERP Project Cost Code List


To delete one or more cost type assignments from the cost codes on a Procore + Acumatica Cloud ERP project.


In Procore and many other popular accounting systems, a cost type is a set of uniquely identified costs represented by an abbreviation and label. They are used for classifying job costs and can later be used to generate reports. See View Job Cost Summary Report. In Procore, several cost types have been predefined for use: L=LaborE=EquipmentM=MaterialsC=CommitmentOC=Owner CostSVC=Professional Services, and O=Other. You can also define and customize an unlimited number of additional cost types. See Add Company Cost Types.

If your company has enabled the ERP Integrations tool for use with Acumatica Cloud ERP you must assign at least one (1) project cost types to your project's list cost codes. See Assign Default Cost Types To Cost Codes. This gives the system the ability to carry over data from Procore's financial tools (i.e., Change Orders, Commitments, and so on) to the Budget tool. 

After cost code data is synced between Procore and Acumatica Cloud ERP, you may occasionally discover a need to delete one (1) or more cost type assignments from your project's cost code list. When this occurs, you must first delete the cost type assignment in Acumatica Cloud ERP and then complete the steps below in the project's Admin tool to remove the synced cost type assignment from Procore.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission:
    • 'Admin' level permission on the project's Admin tool.
  • Requirements:
    • The ERP Integrations tool must be enabled on your company's Procore account.
    • The project must be configured to use the Acumatica Cloud ERP Standard Cost Code list. See Configure Cost Code Preferences for Acumatica Cloud ERP.
