Error description

  • GL Debit Account is not pulled over to
    Desktop Requisition after adding
    MRLINE.REFWO
    PROBLEM:GL Debit Account is not pulled over to Desktop
    Requisition after adding MRLINE.REFWO
    PERFORMANCE ISSUE: no
    STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
    1. Go to System Configuration > Platform Configuration >
    Application Designer
    2. Export the Library XML by using the select action dialog >
    export system XML > and Choose Library
    3. Save the Library XML and open the file with a notepad editor
    such as Notepad ++.
    4. After opening LIBRARY.XML, navigate to the line <textbox
    dataattribute="gldebitacct"
    id="reqlines_tabledetails_1_row2_col3_sec12"
    lookup="glnavigator"/>
    5. create a new line and add this in: <textbox
    applink="wotrack" dataattribute="refwo"
    id="reqlines_tabledetails_1_added_by_jorr_01"
    lookup="workorder" menutype="normal"/>
    6. Go back into Maximo and Import the LIBRARY.XML in
    application designer by using the Import Application Definition
    and choosing the LIBRARY.XML file.
    7. After importing the LIBRARY.XML file back in, using the Go
    To Menu, navigate to Self Service > Desktop Requisition >
    CreateDR.
    8. When the new Desktop Requisition is opened, specify a GL
    Account value for the MR header. (The bug could be replicated
    when the GL Account on the MR header was either left null, or
    fully specified, but if the GL Account was partially specified,
    the bug did not occur. So, please fully specify the GL Account,
    and/or test with it null.) Click the continue button toward the
    bottom left and add a new line under the table Requisition Line
    Items by clicking the new row button.
    9. Populate the added Work Order field. (The field can be
    populated any way: app-link, direct entry, or the Select Value
    dialog.)
    BUG: The associated GL Debit Account field is NOT populated
    with the WO's GL Account.
    EXPECTED BEHAVIOR: The GL Account from the MR header on the MR
    Line should always be replaced by the Work Order's GL Account
    (unless the Work Order has null GL Account).
    CURRENT ERRONEOUS RESULT:
    GL Debit Account is not pulled over to Desktop Requisition
    after adding
    MRLINE.REFWO
    EXPECTED RESULT:
    GL Debit Account pulled over to Desktop Requisition after adding
    MRLINE.REFWO
    ADDITIONAL INFO:
    The bug could be replicated when the GL Account on the MR
    header was either left null, or fully specified, but that if
    the GL Account was partially specified, the bug did not occur.
    Indicate that after the fix, the GL Account from the MR header
    on the MR Line should always be replaced by the Work Order's GL
    Account (no matter if the MR header's GL Account is null, fully
    specified, or partially specified).
    Indicate that the Work Order field on the MR Line can be
    populated in any way; the tester does not have to app-link and
    Return With Value.
