Reproducing the Issue

  • Employee's hire date is 24th August 2016
  • The time information in the employee's Job Information portlet is entered with an effective date of 01/01/2017 due to which accounts gets created for the year 2017
  • On running the accrual calendar, the accrual rule has run and not the hire rule.


This is expected behavoiur and as per design.


Hire rule won't be run on every new Time accounts. A Hire rule is run only during hire period of the employee.

The employee is hired on ‘24 Aug 2016’, therefore a hire rule will be run only for that particular month (suppose accrual frequency period is monthly) i.e August 2016.

In all other months accrual rule will be triggered.
