PersonAbsenceEntry.dat HDL How to Load Two or More Concurrent or Overlapping Absence Entries (Doc ID 2332742.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 06, 2022

Oracle Fusion Global Human Resources Cloud Service - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When loading Person Absence Entry data via HDL that contains overlapping records, the process to load completes, but batch returns warning message stating 'La absence entry overlaps with another absence entry YYYY-MM-DD - YYYY-MM-DD. Do you wish to continue?', but the records don't reflect in the UI. When inputting the same data within the UI, the same error message appears, and after clicking OK to acknowledge message, the data reflects as intended

The HDL file should load the data correctly

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

1. Configure Separate Generic Absence Types (Navigator->Setup & Maintenance->Manage Absence Types), and under each tab

    Type Attributes--pass same Unit of Measure or UOM value, with Active Status, within the same Legislative Data Group, with Effective Start Date earlier than absence entry dates, and maintain same values/settings under Duration Rules and Absence Record Maintenance
    Plans and Reasons--Absence Type not associated with any Absence Plan, but associated with the same Absence Reason, with Linkeage Reason 'No', and default 'Yes' values
    Display Features--Primary Absence Details with default values (or same values in both Absence Types), no Qualified Entitlements defined, Approval & Processing Rules that include Currency Enabled on all three 'Employee Self-Service', 'Manager Self-Service', 'Administrative Action' columns
    Action Items--no data entered or configuration

2. Load PersonAbsenceEntry.dat via HDL with overlapping entries for different absence types successfully, but encounter error message, and notice that the records do not reflect in UI
3. Input same data via UI, and after encountering error message, click 'OK' to continue, and notice that the records reflect as intended
