As a starting answer to your question which encompasses a large issue. An additional set of accounts need to be setup in the chart of accounts; they may be numbered starting with 8. You will need to define a specific journal (based on the OD template) to book the commitments given or received.

See the simplified French chart of account below:

***• Engagements donnés par l’entité : (dettes) 
• Engagements reçus par l’entité : (créances)*** 
801 Engagements donnés par l’entité 
8011. Avals, cautions, garanties 
8014. Effets circulants sous l’endos de l’entité 
8016. Redevances de crédit-bail restant à courir 
80161 Crédit-bail mobilier 
80165 Crédit-bail immobilier 
8018. Autres engagements donnés 
**Engagements reçus (créances).** 
802 Engagements reçus par l’entité 
8021. Avals, cautions, garanties 
8024. Créances escomptées non échues 
8026. Engagements reçus pour utilisation en crédit-bail 
80261 Crédit-bail mobilier 
80265 Crédit-bail immobilier 
8028. autres engagements reçus.
**Contrepartie des engagements.** 
809 Contrepartie des engagements
8091 Contrepartie de 801 
8092 Contrepartie de 802
