2350254 - Set bonus Calculation Job Failing - Fail to retrieve background in chunk: Fail to get bg items in chunks

Symptom

Set Bonus Calculation job is failing with an error pointing to "get bg items in chunk"

Environment

Variable Pay

Cause

There is a field that is surpassing the size allowed for its category.

Resolution

The background section in Variable Pay considers different types of fields:

vfld fields, for String type fields

ifld fields, for Integer type fields

ffld fields, float type fields

dfld fields, float type fields

 

ifld fields can store up to 2^31-1=2147483647. If the number is greater than 2147483647, the exception will happen. If that is the case, the solution is to modify the configuration of that field and move it a ffld field, as it can store very large numbers. Regarding text, vfld can store 4000 bytes.
