When a user creates a Timesheet that has ONLY time entries for a project with Financial Status = 'Hold', the Post Timesheet job does not create financial transactions which is expected. However, if you create a timesheet that has actual hours for a project that has a financial status = 'Open' and actual hours for a project that has a financial status = 'Hold' the job will incorrectly create financial transactions (for projects with any financial status not 'Open').
This becomes a problem because the properties for the project have not been configured yet and now the project manager is prevented from entering a COMPANY NAME. This becomes more critical if the Clarity administrator has configured the Project Financial properties page to have a 'Value Required' option set for the COMPANY NAME. Now the end-user cannot update ANY fields on the project financial properties page because the COMPANY NAME value is NULL (by default) and the application logic prevents the end-user from changing the value with an error message 'Company Name or Billing Currency cannot be changed after transactions have been posted'. The only workaround for this configuration is for the Clarity Administrator to make an update to the PAC_MNT_PROJECTS table for the COMPANY_CODE value and then the end-user will have the ability to modify the remaining properties on the Project Financial properties page.
Steps to Reproduce:
Expected Result: Invalid Transactions page should show NEW entries for PROJECT2 ONLY.
Actual Result: Invalid Transactions page shows NEW entries for BOTH PROJECT1 and PROJECT2 for the Timesheet that has both projects. Navigate to PROJECT1 > Financial Properties page and attempt to update the values on the page. The application logic prevents the end-user from updating the page.
Currently, there is a workaround that allows the end-user to update the Company Code value through the Project List View. When this attribute is placed on the Project List View and the end-user updates it using the 'Edit Mode', the built-in logic that is executed in the Project Financial Properties page is not invoked and the value can be updated successfully.
