E-PC: Transfer And TransferExact Behaviour Has Changed In 8.55.05. (Doc ID 2276081.1)

Last updated on JUNE 20, 2017

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.55 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Transfer and TransferExact behaviour has changed in 8.55 

In 8.55, the Transfer and TransferExact built-in functions are not behaving as they did in PeopleTools 8.53. In previous PeopleTools versions the end user would receive a "You are not authorized for this page." message if they did not have access to the transfer location (or if the developer mistyped a parameter in the Transfer function). Now, no feedback is given to the user and code execution stops.


STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a button anywhere that will transfer you somewhere else but mistype the location or point it to a location you don't have access to.
2. In PIA, when you click the button, no error will appear and nothing will happen.


This is replicable in any 8.55 environment
