On Oracle Financial Services Balance Sheet Planning (BSP) 6.1, when running the cash flow process, it appears that Essbase data is not properly cleared.


It does not appear that the existing Essbase data for the Entity/Chart of Account (COA), etc combination that is being processed is cleared before the process is run. This was discovered when testing prepayment factors for a particular COA which produced data for some of the prepayment financial elements.  After removing the prepayment factors from the COA characteristics and reprocessing, the financial elements related to prepayment still had values.


Expect prior Essbase data to be cleared before running so reprocessing yields correct results.  In the test case, the expectation would be that the now "Invalid" financial elements would have been cleared out since they are now longer applicable.

Steps to reproduce

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Run current position cash flows for a COA that has some characteristics that create data in a subset of the financial Elements
2. Remove the characteristic related to the elements and reprocess.
