Absence Duration Not Recalculated After Formula Changed

(Doc ID 1355372.1)

Last updated on MARCH 03, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Human Resources - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


An absence request is submitted and between that and the time when that request is approved, the BG_ABSENCE_DURATION formula is changed such that the duration of that absence would have been calculated to a different amount.
When approved, the old duration value is committed and not the new value.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create an absence request using self servcie and submit for approval
2. change the BG_ABSENCE_DURATION fast formula, in such a way that the duration of the leave created in step 1 changes
3. approve the absence created in step 1
4. the absence is committed to database but note that the absence duration is not as per the change in the BG_ABSENCE_DURATION fast formula
