GLXJEENT Funds Remain Reserved Even After Performing Unreserve Action On GL Budget Journals (Doc ID 1617300.1)

Last updated on MAY 12, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle General Ledger - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Form:GLXJEENT.FMB - Enter Journals/Encumbrances

Symptoms

In the GL Journals Form (GLXJEENT) the funds remain RESERVED even after performing Unreserve action on GL budget journals. After this step the user is even allowed to delete the journal, which effectively created orphan records in the gl_bc_packets table – those records remain there in the 'A – APPROVED' status.

The issue has occured after the upgrade from 11.5.10 to 12.1.3 – in 11i there was no problem.
In result, the system displays incorrect Available funds for respective code combinations.
This problem seems to occur only if unreserving funds from the gl batches window, or if the gl batches window is active in the background when unreserving funds from the journals window .

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Log into general ledger with a GL responsibility
2. Journals >Enter (GLXJEENT)
3. Try to unreserve the funds
