Applies to:

Oracle HRMS (UK) - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 12.1.3 version, UK Payroll

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Planning to use the Payroll Groups Functionality.
Payroll Group is created with a single Payroll. The Payroll has multiple Date Track Changes. If the Payroll Run UK - Batch is submitted, the process submits Payroll Run UK Program multiple times for same Payroll.
Our Payroll has 3 Date track Change (in PAY_ALL_PAYROLLS_F). Hence the Payroll Run UK is submitted 3 times for the same PAyroll and Period.
This is due to the Cursors in PAY_GB_MULTI_PAYROLL_RUN (Mainly CSR_ALL_PAYROLLS) has no Date Track check to PAY_ALL_PAYROLLS_F Table.
Are planning to use the Payroll Groups functionality. 

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
The payroll to be submitted only once

STEPS

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Make a Date track Update to Payroll Definition.

4. Observe that the Payroll Run has been submitted multiple times for the same Payroll.
