Purchasing Validation not Performed on Timecards updated with Templates (Doc ID 1672103.1)

Last updated on JULY 26, 2017

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

On : 12.1.3 version, Seeded Timecard Layouts

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
When a timecard is approved the request "Retrieve Time from OTL in Purchasing" will create receipts against the purchase order that is created for the contingent worker.

On the Purchase Order (PO)  the Tolerance is set to 0 % and Reject. This means the contingent worker cannot write more hours than the ordered amount.
When a contingent workers wants to submit a timecard with more hours then the ordered amount on the PO Oracle will give a error message that the funds are exceeded.

Unfortunately contingent workers are able to submit more hours then is ordered by applying a timecard template and submit the timecard.
When the timecard is approved the request "Retrieve Time from OTL" will pick up the timecard and tries to process it to PO.

The logfile of Retrieve Time from OTL will give a error, the timecard cannot be processed because of the tolerance setting.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
When a timecard gets created and a timecard template gets applied Oracle needs to do a validation check

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create and update Self Service Projects and Purchasing (ProjPO) Timecard
2. Update timecard with template and enter more hours than allowed for PO fund
3. There is no validation error raised.
