Deletion of a Brand New Rule that was Approved Earlier via Workflow Failing for "Referential Integrity" Error

(Doc ID 2295993.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 14, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Financial Services Revenue Management and Billing - Version 2.4.0.1.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The requirement is to add an approval workflow on the Rule screen where any change being made will go through workflow allowing the user to approve/reject the change. This is critical for business from an audit perspective.

Referring Banking User Guide, Revision 6.5, page 267 for setting the approval workflow, we successfully configured it for Rule object.
Now Approval Workflow works perfect for Adding and Modification of Rules, however when adding a BRAND NEW rule having it approved and then deleting it, we get a failure.

User with the "Checker" To Do Role cannot approve Rule deletion.
The following error is displayed when pressing [Accept Changes] button:

"Can't delete Rule (Rule RAWET02 ) it is referenced by Rule Output Field
(Rule RAWET02 Field ACCT_NO1_COL )
11001, 701
Referential Integrity error"

Please note that the same is reproducible for:
- Newly created rules
- Rules copied from existing rules

Steps to reproduce:
1. Set up User with "Checker" To Do Rules
2. Navigate to [Menu] > [Main Menu] > [Approval Workflow Management] > [Approve]
3. Search transaction by [Group] and [Transaction ID]
4. Click [Accept Changes] button

The Referential Integrity error mentioned above is displayed.
