AR_S_00008 Transactions Workbench Issue: Unable to Post Negative Invoices Applied to Other Invoices (Doc ID 1549756.1)

Last updated on JUNE 21, 2023

Applies to:

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


You create a negative invoice via API and apply it to another invoice, using the credit memo apply API.  The negative invoice distribution rows get posted to GL; however, the application row does not.  

The application row has type = CM and it is attached to the Event_ID of the INV_CREATE event. This event shows EVENT_STATUS_CODE = P, PROCESS_STATUS_CODE = P.  

The Credit Memo API (ar_cm_api_pub.apply_on_account) does not validate that the values provided for inv_customer_trx_id is in fact the Invoice's customer_trx_id, or that the cm_customer_trx_id is in fact the credit memo's customer_trx_id, and this causes incorrect data that impacts posting to GL.
