E-EOEN: Alert Notifications are Executed Multiple Times for Each Row Returned by the Alert Definition Criteria and Query (Doc ID 2913295.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 07, 2022

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.59 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


After upgrading to HCM 9.2 PUM42 and PeopleTools (PT) 8.59.11, the EOEN_ALERT process is triggering the alert notifications every time the alert message is processed, based on the query defined in the Alert Definitions page.  If the query returns 100 rows, the code is being called 101 times - once for the batch process and once each as part of the notification alert message. The alerts were working fine prior to upgrade, from 8.57.24 and HCM 9.2 PUM 35.
