Timecard List Of Values For Projects Are Not Based On the Operating Unit Of OTL, Instead It Is Picked Up From Employee's Assignment Organization (Doc ID 1576602.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 25, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Time and Labor - Version 12.1 HRMS RUP6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms


ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
----------------------
MO: Operating Unit is Set to "ABC" for Responsibility "ABC Self Service Time"
MO: Operating Unit is Set to "123" for Responsibility "123 Self Service Time"
MO: Security Profile is also same

In R11
If an Employee XXX logins to Responsibility "ABC Self Service Time" he will see projects from Operating Unit/Organization attached to MO: Operating Unit Profile Option "ABC"
If an Employee XXX logins to Responsibility "123 Self Service Time" he will see projects from Operating Unit/Organization attached to MO: Operating Unit Profile Option "123"

In R12
If an Employee XXX logins to Responsibility "ABC Self Service Time" he will see projects from Operating Unit/Organization attached to MO: Operating Unit Profile Option "ABC"
If an Employee XXX logins to Responsibility "123 Self Service Time" he will see projects from Operating Unit/Organization attached to MO: Operating Unit Profile Option "ABC"

So when MO: Operating Unit profile for the responsibility is different from the Operating Unit attached to the employee's HR assignment (Organization value), the assignment organization value is taking precedence for time entry.  It should be the other way around.
