TO Salaries Being Refreshed With FROM Salaries Upon Manual Refresh Or InBox Recall (Doc ID 2290062.1)

Last updated on JULY 07, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle US Federal Human Resources - Version 12.2 HRMS RUP8 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


User created a Conversion RPA (NOA 5xx) that was converting a GS-15 employee to SES position. The TO Basic Salary was coded as $166712. RPA was saved to the Inbox. When the RPA was opened from the In-Box, the TO Salary fields (block 20c and 20) were refreshed to the FROM Side Basic Pay side (block 12a).

User created a NOA 890 (Misc Pay Adj) for an SES employee eff 08-Jan-2017. Entered new salaries in block 20A. Saved RPA to Inbox. Recalled RPA from Inbox and TO Salary fields (block 20c and 20) are being refreshed to the FROM Basic Pay Field (block 12a).

This issue is happening on other employee groups whose step equals 00 (e.g. demonstration project records). Pay Plans ES, ST, SL, IP, IE, etc.

A bug in Oracle refresh code is causing the TO pay values to be refreshed with the FROM side pay values when a manual refresh is performed or when the RPA is saved to the inbox and retrieved for processing.

Workaround: User can update TO side salaries and update HR without saving to Inbox.
