3210699 - Using Same Advance Type (Pay Component) in Multiple Advances


Is it possible to use the same advance type (pay component) in multiple advances?

Reproducing the Issue

Sample scenario:

The same advance type is used in 4 different advances on "Eligibility For Advances" but only 1 advance is shown for the employee even though they are eligible for all the 4 advances.


If the same advance type is used for all advances system will check eligibility rule for 1 of the advances and if the employee is eligible then only 1 advance will be displayed. The rest will not be shown even though employee is eligible for all of them.

If the employee is not eligible for the advance which is picked by the system during the rule execution, then none of the advances will be shown.


The advance type (pay component) used in an advance should not be reused in any another advance.

For example, if advance type (pay component) "HOME_LOAN" is used in home loan advance it should not be used in any other advance or any other variants of home loans. Always use different advance types (pay components) in different advances.
