2831437 - Duplicate Requisition ID Values - RCM


  • When requisitions are duplicated, the requisition ID is dictated by the tool.
  • Users will not be presented with the option to select or create duplicate requisition ID's.
  • When creating more than one copy of a requisition the requisition number increases by multiple values or by 1.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. View a requisition ID and hover over requisition ID
  2. Click on the Duplicate Job Requisition link
  3. Enter 2 for the number of copies to create
  4. Click Duplicate
  5. The system creates a requisition number 


This is the expected behavior based on current logic.


  • The job req id is generated by the system as a database sequence with increments of 1 and a cache of 20.
  • When the Job req is created immediately requisition IDs are incremented by 1 and when there is a time lapse in duplicating the requisition, the system creates the requisition ID numbers with the cache.
