Symptoms

On PFT 8.0.2, after adding user defined consolidation codes, allocations have started to fail.

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
Allocations start to fail after creating user defined consolidation codes.

The ofspa log file ends abruptly:

Module Logging OFS Access module data: SELECT
SELECT ID_TYPE
FROM FSI_M_OBJECT_DEFINITION_B
WHERE OBJECT_DEFINITION_ID = 244197.000000


Module Logging OFS Access module data: select
select FSI_CONSOLIDATION_DSC.consolidation,
FSI_CONSOLIDATION_DSC.consolidation_cd
from FSI_CONSOLIDATION_DSC

The following error exists in the nohup.out in $FIC_DB_HOME/bin:

Sucssefully Connected to Config schema.
Sucssefully Connected to Atomic Schema.
Connection to database ofsaaatomic successful
PLEASE provide the valid String

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
As per the Oracle® Financial Services Profitability Management
User Guide
Release 8

User defined consolidation codes are supported:

For allocation rules that source data from the Management Ledger-level, you must
select a Source scenario from the Allocation Source container. The default for new
allocation rules is . When you use this default value,
Scenario (also called Consolidation Code) is determined by the value that is set in
Application Preferences for Profitability Management for the user who is running the
rule. If you do not select , you must select a defined
dimension member value (for example, Actual, Budget, Forecast, Forecast Prior). These
values are provided with the data model, but you may add additional dimension
members in the Consolidation Code dimension.

Therefore it is expected that the allocation will complete successfully.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create new user define consolidation codes.
2. Run allocations.
