EEX 9.2: Page and Field Configurator Settings of Disable Entry on Personal Expense Field Is Not Respected at Fluid Expense Report Line Page After Payment Type Is Populated (Doc ID 2853802.1)

Last updated on MARCH 06, 2022

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

It has been detected that the Disable Entry setting defined at the Page and Field Configurator level for Component EX_EXP_SHEET_FL, on Field Personal Expense (Record Field PS_EX_SHEET_LINE.PERSONAL_EXPENSE), is being properly followed by the system when the stated page is being loaded online, and the Expense Type at the Expense Report Line level is populated.

However, the same configuration is automatically ignored once the User populates the Payment Type field from the same Expense Report Line, or it auto-populates from the Expenses profile User Defaults settings, by becoming once again editable, allowing Employees to choose Yes/No from the slide bar provided.

REPLICATION STEPS:

    1.- Log into the FSCM Online Application as a System Administrator
    2.- Navigate to: Enterprise Components > Page and Field Configuration > Page and Field Configurator
    3.- Add a new value for Component Name EX_EXP_SHEET_FL, under Market Global, and Configuration Type Standard
    4.- On the Page Configuration tab, define Sequence Number 1, and click on the SELECT FIELDS button
    5.- From the Primary Page drop down, select the value '04-Expense Entry' and click on SEARCH button
    6.- From the list of Fields displayed, select the 'Personal Expense' row (Record EX_SHEET_LINE, Field PERSONAL_EXPENSE)
    7.- Click on the OK button
    8.- In the new Personal Expense row that has been added into the 'Configure Field Properties' section, define the below settings:
              a) Modify Label = Y
              b) Label Text = Non-Reimbursable
              c) Disable Entry = Y
    9.- Save the changes
    10.- Click on the VALIDATE CONFIGURATION button
    11.- Confirm that the system pops up Message (18111,25019) confirming the validation was correct without any errors detected
    12.- Go to the User List tab, and define the below set up:
              a) Level = Header Level
              b) Applies To = All With Excluded Roles/Users
    13.- Go to the 'Map to Portal Registry' tab, select the EMPLOYEE listed row, and click on the APPLY CONFIGURATION button
    14.- Confirm that the system pops up Message (18111,25043) confirming the mapping of the configuration to the Component Events
    15.- Log into the FSCM Online Application as an Expenses User
    16.- Navigate to the Employee Self-Service Fluid Homepage, and click on the Expenses Tile
    17.- Click on the Create Expense Report Tile
    18.- Populate the different Expense Report Header fields, and select the Action of 'Add Expense Lines'
    19.- Confirm that the Personal Expense field (Non-Reimbursable) is not displayed at this stage, because Expense Type value is still blank at the Fluid Expense Entry page
    20.- Define a value in the Expense Report Line Expense Type field, and tab out
    21.-Confirm that the Personal Expense field (Non-Reimbursable) is now properly being displayed with the new label, and grayed out, in the Exceptions new section
    22.- Populate the Expense Report Line fields of Description, and Amount
    23.- Continue by defining a value in the Expense Report Line Payment Type field, and tab out
    24.- ISSUE: Note that the Personal Expense field (Non-Reimbursable) is now being displayed as editable, and Users can choose Yes/No from the slide bar feature

To gather more information concerning this scenario and its related problem, refer to the available Replication Steps PDF Document here linked containing the complete configuration and the replication steps necessary to reproduce the issue.

The Page and Field Configurator set up of Disable Entry is being largely ignored, and as such, renders useless the configuration, as Users are able to select Yes/No from the slide bar, and mark certain expenses as non-reimbursable.

The settings defined at the Page and Field Configurator level for the Component EX_EXP_SHEET_FL, at the Fluid Expense Entry page (EX_SHEET_LN_FL) level, should be properly applied at all times, not only at loading of the page, but whenever a change is performed that would affect the Personal Expense field, by keeping it grayed out all the time.
