Cross Validation Rules (CVR)

Symptoms



ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Cross Validation Rules (CVR) are not working as expected in iExpense

Several employees were able to charge to a US Line Of Business (LOB) and Cost Center (CC) from their Canadian Operating Unit (OU). The CVR that is setup should be preventing this from happening during the Allocation entry step of the expense report creation process. This only seems to be happening in one of the Canadian operating units the other are not able to charge to US LOB's and CC's. The expense reports are exported into AP and invoice is created and then a GDF script has to be ran to correct the accounting.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Expect the CVR to work the same across every operating unit.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a CRV rule in GL preventing some particular Cost Center segments from being used with some Line of Business segments for specific operating units.
2. Bounce the Apache server
3. Log into the specific Canadian related responsibility for OIE.
4. Enter an expense report and confirm that it is possible to select the combination of CC and LOG segments that should be prevented by the CVR defined in GL.
