Last updated on OCTOBER 06, 2021

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise HCM Absence Management - Version 9.2 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Following error occurs when viewing Approval Chain (approval status monitor) as the employee for whom an extended absence was submitted, under Employee Self Service > Time tile > View Absence Requests tile.
The problem arises only when attempting to view the Approval Chain for an absence request that is a child to an Extended Absence, when that child request was added from an administrator page (GP_ABS_EVENT.ABS_ENTRY_SRC = ‘A’, ’B’, or ‘C’).

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create an extended absence request. This may be done either from Employee Self Service or from the Administrator page
    Navigation:
        Main Menu > Global Payroll & Absence Mgmt > Payee Data > Maintain Absences > Administer Extended Absence
          or
        Employee Self-Service desktop > “Time” tile > “Extended Absence Request” tile
2. Approve the extended absence request.
3. Add an absence to the approved extended absence request, using the administrator page.
    Navigation: Main Menu > Global Payroll & Absence Mgmt > Payee Data > Maintain Absences > Administer Extended Absence
Confirm that you entered a child to the Extended Absence request from the administrator page (GP_ABS_EVENT.ABS_ENTRY_SRC ='C' ). TRANSACTION_NBR is the child absence and TRANSACTION_NBR_EA is the parent extended absence.
4. Approve the absence request.
5. As the employee for whom the extended absence requests were entered, navigate to Employee Self Service > Time tile > View Absence Requests tile, find the child absence request from step 3 and click on it to view the absence details.
6. At the bottom of the page, click on the “Approval Chain” link to see the error.
