2686223 - onSave Job Information Validation Rules Triggering Incorrectly


We have a requirement for a business rule to throw a warning message if FTE is equal to 0. The rule below is triggering even if FTE is greater than 0


"Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.“


  • Employee Central - Job Information
  • Employee Central - Business rules

Reproducing the Issue

1. Edit Job Info

2. Set FTE Field to be 0.1

3. Rule Triggers when it should not


The rule triggers incorrectly due to the standard hours and FTE field being in the Time Information Section of the Job Information Portlet



Engineering are investigating why the rule triggers incorrectly when the fields are in the Time Information Section

Put the field into the Job Information Section, as per the screenshot
