3113724 - FTE Field Not Updating With The Calculated Value From Custom Rule


The requirement is to set FTE field to 0 (during a LOA operation) by using a custom rule.

Reproducing the Issue

  • To bypass the automatic FTE Field Calculation with Standard Hours Field, configuring a custom-string for Stand Hours Field and disabling the Standard Hours Field in BCUI is required. 
  • Based on the Guide, as long as the above criteria is met, rule should set FTE field to 0 in the UI, but this is not being respected.
  • Despite of the rule setting the FTE value to 0 (confirmed by rule trace), UI still displays the field as 1.



  • Please note that this has been acknowledged by Engineering Team and they are currently working on a fix.
  • Once there are updates on their progress, this article will be updated, so kindly keep track of it.
