Transaction Controls Fail To Prevent Charges On A Task (Doc ID 801136.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 29, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Project Costing - Version: 11.5.10
This problem can occur on any platform.

Symptoms

This issue contradicts with the Limit to transaction control flag.
When the flag is set for controlling it is explicitly listing what charges are allowed on the task, and by whom.
The task should not accept any other charges.
It violates the principle behind the "Limit to Transaction control flag"

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
Expect the transaction controls to work.

STEPS
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Transaction Control setup : No controls defined at Project level.
2. As an example, Task level control on task 015557: For this task only transactions allowed are of expenditure type LLNL LABOR by an unnamed person. ( Limit transaction controls flag is set “Y”)
3. It can now be seen that some transactions are allowed on this task.
4. The system should now allow these transactions to be saved.
Strangely if the transaction controls are modified and the employee name is removed, it works.
But it would allow all employees to charge.

BUSINESS IMPACT
The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, unwanted charges occur on projects. It is a big issue to correct them as
the cost transfers need approval.
