Argentina Localization Error: Setting up AR System Options Raises ERROR APP-JL-62181: Please enter a value for the required segment in the descriptive flexfield. (Doc ID 1279639.1)

Last updated on JULY 28, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Receivables - Version 12.1.2 and later
Oracle Financials for the Americas - Version 12.1.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When entering system options for a new operating unit (ARGENTINA), following error occurs:

APP-JL-62181: Please enter a value for the required segment in the descriptive flexfield.

It appears code is still running validation logic on the descriptive flexfield (DFF) even when it is disabled. Error is raised requiring information on the flexfield, but then no input can be entered as it is disabled.
When the DFF is disabled, expect no validation to be done on it.
