Optional Fields Invoice Installments REST API Are Mandatory (Doc ID 2723873.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 28, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Fusion Payables Cloud Service - Version 11.13.20.07.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Although the documentation for the Invoices REST Endpoints states that following fields on the Invoice Installments are optional, the feedback from the REST API says that these mandatory fields are missing: ‘Installment Number’, ‘Installment Due Date’ and ‘Installment Gross Amount’.

See: https://docs.oracle.com/en/cloud/saas/financials/20b/farfa/api-invoices.html

It is feasible to provide the Installment Number and the Gross Amount when using the REST API for Invoices while creating the document.

However, the 'Installment Due Date' is not that easy to be provided: the calculation of payment due dates is a science on its own because normally the supplier site provides the default payment terms and if the supplier site doesn't have payment terms, the payment terms from the Manage Invoice Options page are used.

This is the chicken-and-the-egg issue: the field is mandatory when creating the invoice, but you can't calculate the due date because the value is normally calculated automatically based on the payment term defaulted on the invoice when creating the document.

So how can this be working then?
