2539600 - Alternate Cost Distribution - Maximum Number of Cost Centers


The customer needs to add up to 25 records on the Alternate Cost Distribution "EmpCostDistribution", but the system only allows to save up to 12. Is there any way to extend that limit?

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to profile
  2. Edit "Alternative Cost Center"
  3. Click on "Add" button
  4. "Add a new record"
  5. Insert a new cost center and percent

This is an expected system behavior.
