Problem Statement:

When update element entry with the same value by pay_element_entry_api.update_element_entry, the datetrack isn't updated. But when update element entry on PAYWSMEE.fmb, datetrack is updated. So the behavior of API is different from the form.

Steps to Reproduce:

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

  1. API does not update with date tracking:
    • Run pay_element_entry_api.update_element_entry to update element entry with date tracking.
  2. Using Forms works:
  3. Using forms log in to Oracle applications -> Fast path -> Entries ->Query employee-> Change date track and update input value with same value -> save -> select update
