2567662 - Import Advances with Recovery Status INPROCESS

Symptom

How to import Advances with Recovery Status INPROCESS?

Environment

Employee Central: Advances

Reproducing the Issue

When you import Advances with recovery status INPROCESS, the system throws error "???ADVANCES_INVALID_RECOVERY_STATUS???".

Cause

The error is caused by the validation for CREATE data operation. In normal UI operation (manual - not import) the status always remains as NOT STARTED, but this validation is triggered only during import scenario. So in such cases, we do not want to cause inconsistencies in system if RECOVERY STATUS is apart from NOT STARTED (because in this case already deductions is in process which is a valid use-case).

Resolution

We can import the following.

  1. First only Non-Recurring Payment (NRP) records (without installments and deductions) and modify the RECOVERY STATUS to NOT STARTED.
  2. After the successful import, we can import the Installment records and the NRP records with RECOVERY STATUS as IN PROCESS.
