Unable To Select Value Type = Constant For Accounting Flexfield Source In ADR Condition (Doc ID 2237831.1)

Last updated on APRIL 04, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Financials Accounting Hub - Version 12.2.5 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

"Constant" should be an option for an ADR value type, but is not found in the available selections.

 

Steps to reproduce:
-----------------------
1.  Go to Accounting Methods Builder -> Sources.  Search the Source Code as SEGMENT5 and enable it as “Key Flexfield”
2.  Go to Journal Entry Setups -> Account Derivation Rules and create a new rule
3.  Click on the “Conditions” button and try to add the condition. 

Notice that Value Type only allows “Source”.  This should also allow “Constant” so that it can be overridden if the value coming from the Source system is not appropriate, but "Constant" is not available for selection.
