Last updated on MARCH 09, 2017

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

The Principal Investigator lookup PeopleCode is incorrect on the Maintain Proposal page. It allows the PI field to be updated with User IDs that are not defined as PIs.  Only UserIDs that are marked as PIs should ever be allowed on the PI field.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Add a new proposal using the prompt to select a PI and save.
  2. Go to the Budgets tab and drill down on the budget period.
  3. Enter a budget detail row and save.
  4. Click the Return to Maintain Proposal link.
  5. Click the Return to Search button.
  6. Do not change any search values, just drill down on the original proposal.
  7. Go to the proposal tab, enter a value in the PI ID of a user who is not an eligible PI and tab out.
  8. Save the page.


Due to this issue, users can enter invalid IDs for the PI.
