Oracle Cloud HCM – A Useful Work Around

In regular HR processes we often come across a requirement of configuring absence type (eg. Sick Leave, Casual Leave) which will accrue balance at the beginning of each month to employees who are enrolled into those leave plans.

Let us consider that an accrual plan needs to be setup to accrue 1 day balance on 1st of each month (For e.g. 1 day on 01-JUN-2019 for the month of June’ 2019).

However,in Oracle HCM Cloud if we use delivered Monthly Accrual Processing Period during absence plan configuration then it will calculate the accrual at end of the period (For e.g .on 30-JUN-2019 for the month of Jun’ 2019).

Below is the configuration page of Monthly Accrual Processing Period:

Monthly Accrual Processing Period

Oracle Support has accepted this as a bug (Bug 19933904 – login required).

To address the issue, we may follow the below workaround:

Create a Custom Monthly Period with Period Type as Monthly, Period Length as Calendar Month and Sample Start Date as the second day of the month.

The Period should have setup similar to the screenshot below:

edit repeating time period

Once this period is created the same can be utilized in absence plan to accrue balance on the beginning of each month.

Skip Costly Rework with Dynamic Change Resiliency​

Change resiliency is imperative in ever-evolving IT environments. Our patented object action framework streamlines change management by assigning object definitions to your shared assets. The same object may be used in a thousand automation steps, but it can be easily updated by making one simple change to the model definition. The change automatically propagates to every single instance where that object may have been used without a single line of code or manual human involvement. For more change readiness you can also engage our Impact Analysis for SAP to predict how changes in SAP transports will affect your business processes.

SOAIS Blog – Nuts and bolts of Certify Database Maintenance​

One of the key thing, which is often missed by the organizations, who have invested in using Worksoft Certify for automating their Business Process Validation initiatives, is implementing a Database Maintenance Plan. While the business and the test automation consultants get excited about the shiny new thing that they have got and start building the regression suite; planning and executing a database maintenance plan for most of the customers gets pushed down the priority list. However, since all the test assets in Certify are stored in a Database, a robust database maintenance plan is very important to maintain smooth operation of Certify with acceptable performance criteria. The customers usually start facing issues once they have built significant number of Certify processes which they have started executing on regular basis. Such executions add a lot of data to the tables storing results data and increase the overall size of the Certify database.

Worksoft Blog – Process Intelligence: A Multi-Dimensional Approach

The ability to extract process knowledge has become easier through the years. Technology has evolved to the point where we can deploy capabilities that connect at multiple levels to extract different types of process insight. In the past, organizations were forced to spend enormous energy extracting data manually from different applications and databases. Then, they would have to use things like spreadsheets to transform the data and convert it into meaningful information.
