Repackaging and 'Original Packaging Plan' Rule Sequences New Item Types After Pre-Existing Ones, Regardless of Sequence Order in the Packaging Plan (Doc ID 2950091.1)

Last updated on MAY 19, 2023

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise CS Financial Aid - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When repackaging students, on-line or in batch, using a repackaging plan that invokes the 'original packaging plan' rule, the item types end up sequenced differently than in the order specified in the packaging plan. Specifically, any new item types being awarded for the first time are sequenced after item types already posted.

The expectation is for the item types to end up posted in the same order as specified in the original packaging plan, regardless of whether the item types were previously posted. For example, an item type that is sequenced first in the packaging plan and wasn't previously awarded should end up posted first and not last.

The issue does not occur if the original packaging plan is simply (re)invoked directly via the "regular" packaging process.

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

  1. On Set Up SACR > Product Related > Financial Aid > Awards > Repackaging Plan > Repackaging Plan, set up a repackaging plan with the rule "Original Packaging Plan".
  2. On Financial Aid > Awards > Award Processing > Assign Awards to a Student > Student Aid Package, choose a student with the Packaging Plan ID populated and at least one non-zero posted item type with all such item types set as unlocked.
  3. In the repackaging plan field, enter the plan from step 1 and click 'Repackage', such that the student will be awarded at least one item type from the plan that was not already seen to be posted in step 2. Note all previous item types are discarded (set to 0), followed by the new item types which appear in the correct order at this stage.
  4. Click 'Post' button and note the newly awarded item type(s) is now sequenced after the previously posted one(s)
