R12 Duplicate Bank Branch Names When Branch Numbers Differ (Doc ID 1673046.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 11, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Payments - Version 12.1.3 and later
Oracle Cash Management - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In Oracle Release 12.1
It is possible to Create at a Single Bank, More than ONE Bank Branch having
the same name but with a different Branch Number.

Using Cash Management responsibility

Create Bank
Country = <COUNTRY_1>
Bank Name = <BANK_1>

Create Branch
Bank Name = <BANK_1>
Branch Name = <BANK_BRANCH_1>

Create Another Branch
Bank Name = <BANK_1>
Branch Name = <BANK_BRANCH_1>

This combination of branch name and branch number already exists for this
bank. Please check whether this branch has already been set up or the branch
name and number is valid.

Create Another Branch
Bank Name = <BANK_1>
Branch Name = <BANK_BRANCH_1>
Branch Number = <BANK_BRANCH_NUM_1>

New Branch is saved successfully.

Update First Branch
Bank Name = <BANK_1>
Branch Name = <BANK_BRANCH_1>
Change Branch Number = NULL
Branch Number = <BANK_BRANCH_NUM_2>


Therefore it is allowed from User Interface to Create Bank Branches in any
combination of the following

Bank Name = <BANK_1>  --- Branch Name = <BANK_BRANCH_1> --- Branch Number = NULL

Bank Name = <BANK_1>  --- Branch Name = <BANK_BRANCH_1> --- Branch Number = <BANK_BRANCH_NUM_1>

Bank Name = <BANK_1>  --- Branch Name = <BANK_BRANCH_1> --- Branch Number = <BANK_BRANCH_NUM_2>


However, the User is using the API to Create the Branches and before Creation they need to verify if the branch exists.

Currently the application is reporting that the Branch Exists based upon only the Branch Name.

It should be considering uniqueness based upon BOTH Branch Name and Branch Number.


It should be Possible to have for <BANK> Branches in <BRANCH> with the same Branch Name but different Branch Numbers.


This should also be true for Banks, The Bank should be reported as existing only when the combination of Bank Name and Number exists in the application.
