EPC - Source Type Is Required On Project Budgets But Budget Detail Page Does Not Enforce This (Doc ID 2373879.1)

Last updated on JULY 21, 2020

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise FIN Project Costing - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


If PC chartfields such as the Source Type are set to required for the Project Costing business unit, there is no validation when entering budget details to ensure these required fields are present. If the user omits one, when they finalize the budget, no budget row is generated but there is no indication to the user that there was a problem other than the Finalized Amount remaining zero. This can prevent users from creating budgets successfully as they have no easy way of identifying the cause of the errors. They might not even have access to a page that lets them see the error message.

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

  1. Navigate to Set Up Financials/Supply Chain > Business Unit Related > Project Costing > Project Costing Options and set Business Unit, Project, Activity & Source Type as Required under the Input Control.
  2. Create a new project with an activity.
  3. Add a cost budget plan for the project
  4. Add a single budget item to the budget leaving the the Source Type blank.
  5. Finalize the budget
