EAP 9.1+: 4 Accounts Payable Records Are Missing Their Description And Record Definition (Doc ID 1961269.1)

Last updated on MARCH 18, 2016

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise FIN Payables - Version 9.1 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

ISSUE:

The below delivered 4 PeopleSoft Enterprise FSCM Accounts Payable Records do not have any values in the Description and Record Definition Fields from Application Designer:

   PS_APGL_OPEN_SUM
   PS_DIST_LINE_BOOK
   PS_PYMNT_VCHR_BOOK
   PS_PYMNT_WTHD_BOOK

Without a clear Description, or definition on what the Record is supposed to store, or be used for, it is not possible to understand it usage and impact in the rest of the FSCM Application.

REPLICATION STEPS:

   - Log into the Application Designer of the PeopleSoft Enterprise FSCM 9.1 Release
   - Navigate to: File > Open
   - Set the Definition = Record
   - Add in the Name field one of the below listed values:
        - APGL_OPEN_SUM
        - DIST_LINE_BOOK
        - PYMNT_VCHR_BOOK
        - PYMNT_WTHD_BOOK
   - Confirm that both the Description and Record Definition fields are blank

To gather more information concerning this scenario and its related problem, refer to the available Replication Steps Word Document here linked containing the complete configuration and the replication steps necessary to reproduce the issue.

BUSINESS IMPACT:

The lack of proper definition on what the affected Records are supposed to contain, or be used on, confuses the technical team that needs to perform maintenance, and FSCM Bundles installations, as the Tables are not properly categorized and identified.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR:

All PeopleSoft Enterprise FSCM delivered Records should contain proper identification on Description and Record Definition fields, so it is comprehensive their usage among the FSCM available functionality.
