Multi-Contract Invoice Still Created When Multi-Contract is not Checked in the Lease Management Invoice Group Setup (Doc ID 1484949.1)

Last updated on JULY 14, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Lease and Finance Management - Version 12.1.3 and later
Oracle Receivables - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 12.1.3 version, Billing Modules

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Three contracts were initially booked using an Invoice Group that was defined with the Multi-Contract Invoice flag set to Yes. These contracts were later changed via the Lease Center to use an Invoice Group defined with Multi-Contract Invoice flag set to No. However, when these contracts are invoiced one invoice with three lines continues to be generated just as it was prior to the change.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Expect three separate invoices to be generated as indicated by the Multi-Contract Invoice flag setting in the Invoice Format being used.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Book three contracts using an Invoice Group with Multi-Contract Invoice flag set to Yes.
2. Bill and Invoice these contracts, all contract will be on one invoice.
3. Update the contracts in the Lease Center to use an Invoice Group with Multi-Contract Invoice flag set to No.
4. Bill and Invoice again, again one invoice with three lines is created.

BUSINESS IMPACT
-----------------------
The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, users cannot create separate invoices as expected.

Changes

In 11i all Lease Management Invoices in Receivables had one Invoice line so all grouping was handled in Lease Management. 

In R12 Lease Management Invoices in Receivables can have multiple lines.  The Grouping of those lines is now handles using Receivables' Grouping Rules.  The Lease Managment portion of that functionality is to populate an attibute for Receivables to be able to use to Group based on the Multi_Contract Invoice Flag.  Lease Management uses  ra_interface_lines_all.interface_line_attribute12 to do that in R12.
