EEX 9.2: Originating Location Missing for Fluid Travel Authorization Lines Other Than First One (Doc ID 2794302.1)

Last updated on JULY 23, 2021

Applies to:

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


A problem has been detected with the Fluid Travel Authorization entry component, where if an Expense Type requiring 'Originating Location' value to be populated is being used in newly added lines. While in Online Classic Users can manually enter the From and To Locations at the line level, in Fluid this is only taking place at the Header level. While this streamlines data entry, it seems that it only works for the initial lines defaulted from the Fluid Mapping on Travel Authorizations. Any subsequent lines added manually, would not get the expected default populated.

As the Originating Location (Record Field PS_EX_TAUTH_LINE.TRAVEL_FROM) cannot be entered at the line level anymore, the line in question is flagged in error, and cannot be corrected. For secondary lines, and/or manually added lines, the below Record Fields do not get automatically populated:



     1.- Log into the FSCM Online Application as an Expenses User
     2.- Navigate to: Set Up Financials/Supply Chain > Product Related > Expenses > Purchase > Expense Type
     3.- Open the existing Expense Types of AIRFARE, and AUTO, making sure that the 'Originating Location' check-box is selected at Expense Types 1 tab
     4.- Navigate to: Set Up Financials/Supply Chain > Product Related > Expenses > Mapping > Travel Authorization - Fluid UI
     5.- Under Set ID SHARE, ensure that the row for AIRFARE Expense Type exists, and is flagged as Active, while that of Expense Type AUTO is in-active
     6.- Navigate to: Employee Self-Service Fluid Homepage > Travel Authorizations Tile
     7.- Define the Travel Authorization Header required fields, such as Business Purpose, Description, Comments, Billing Type, From and To Travel fields, as well as From and To Date fields
     8.- For the defaulted AIRFARE line, manually fill in all needed field values
     9.- Manually add a new Line into the Travel Authorization, and choose Expense Type AUTO
     10.- Enter all needed values at the Accounting and Details level for the new Line
     11.- Click on SUBMIT or SAVE buttons to further process the Travel Authorization
     12.- The system flags the AUTO Travel Authorization Line with a red flag error
