R12: OIE: The Credit Card Transactions Validation Program is Unexpectedly Creating Card Data Automatically (Doc ID 1347116.1)

Last updated on JULY 27, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Expenses - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

In 11i, the 'Credit Card Upload Program' (that uploaded transactions into credit card tables but did not validate the transactions) never created new Credit Card records automatically, where as  the 'Credit Card Transactions Validation' program used to report the error of Missing Credit Card Record. Based on this report the user would then manually create a new Credit Card record though the Credit Card form.

Oracle iExpense Implementation Guide, release 11i.  Refer Page D-11 Extract as mentioned below:

Managing New Credit Card Accounts

If new credit card accounts are detected by the loader program, they may or may not be matched to employees and activated. When the credit cards are created, you will receive a notification. If the credit cards are not matched, or they are matched but not automatically activated, use the New Credit Card Accounts page to complete this process.

Note: This feature is only available when you use the *****MasterCard or American Express combined loader and validation concurrent programs*****.  See: Automatically Creating Credit Card Accounts, page 2-46 for more information.

Why then is the"American Express Transaction Loader and Validation" program (as well as Mastercard and Visa programs) automatically creating a new Credit Card record for the uploaded Credit Card Transactions?  Is this now Standard Functionality?
