Flexfield Issue: Accounting Flexfield Alias Field is Editable in R12 (Doc ID 1983427.1)

Last updated on JUNE 07, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Receivables - Version 12.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 12.1.3 version, Receipts Related

For the accounting flexfield you have aliases setup. 

In the distributions screen, when you use a value for an alias that belongs to a different operating unit, the field is editable.  
This works differently than in 11i, where the field is protected and not updateable.

11i and R12 setup for flexfield are identical.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Expectation is that flexfield behaviour is the same in R12 as in 11i

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create Transaction or Miscellaneous Receipt
2. Click on distributions button.
3. For one accounting flexfield segment, where aliases are setup, choose an
alias for a different operating unit. 
4. The field is not protected and it is updateable.  The user can enter any value, including invalid combinations and save.

Changes

Upgrade from 11i to R12.
