(Doc ID 2312740.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 03, 2017

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

On : 9.2 version, Project Assets

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
When adding a new asset using Define Assets page, the description and short description are getting overridden by the default descriptions from profile upon saving.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
When adding a new asset using Define Assets page, the description and short description should not get overridden by the default descriptions from profile upon saving

REPLICATION STEPS
=================
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Project Costing > Assets > Define Assets
2. Add a new Asset. Populate the Profile ID. Also populate Description and Short description other than those on the profile. Populate other required fields
3. Save will change the description and Short description to that of profile rather than retaining the user provided values.

Work around is to change these after the asset is created.
