Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to 'Manage Organization, Pay and Job Structures;
  2. Select a Pay Component;
  3. Take Action > Make correction;
  4. Insert "7.12345678913" in the 'Pay Component Value' field;
  5. The value will be rounded to 3 decimal places.



This is the expected behavior of the system, the value inserted in Pay Component Value field is rounded to 3 decimal places by default.


It's possible to change the number of decimal places to 5 by making changes to the Corporate Data Model. 

Important: Export the file twice and keep one as a backup.

  1. Search for "Import/Export Corporate Data Model";
  2. Select "Export" from the dropdown menu;
  3. Click on "Export";
  4. Open the xml file in your computer;
  5. Search for “Pay Component Value”;
  6. Next to id=”payComponentValue” add the parameter maximumFractionDigits=”5”. Please check the screenshots below;
  7. After you do that, go to “Import/Export Corporate Data Model” select the ‘Import’ option, and upload your xml file;
  8. Then log out and login in your instance again, then you will be able to add more digits in your pay component value.



Note: Even if you add a higher number than 5 the system will round it for 5 fraction digits because the system only accepts 5.
