Why is a cost code path corrupted when applying a template?


We have an issue where sometimes after applying a cost code template to a project, the hierarchy path will not be complete. It will be missing all of the parent path and only shows the name. This issue is only visible in the app by viewing the System Path field inside the form or by using a SQL query, because the system path in the T_TRICOSTCODE table is correct, but the object path field in the IBS_SPEC table is the one that’s not complete. The issue does not have much consequence unless you are using the rollup fields, in which case the corrupt cost code path will cause a posted transaction to fail.

If there are customers who use cost codes heavily, you can try running the following SQL, and if you get any results back, then that means the issue is present at some level in your environment. It is not necessary that you use the Apply Template to create your cost codes, as I have heard of others having the issue where their cost codes are created via an integration. This SQL is for Oracle and may need a tweak for SQL Server. If any customers can run this, and see if they have the issue, it may help us identify how it happens.

select tripathsy, triprojectnamesy, OBJECT_PATH from t_tricostcode T1, IBS_SPEC T2 where T1.spec_id in (select spec_id from ibs_Spec where type_name = ‘triCostCode’ and object_path not like ‘%\Cost Code%’) AND T1.spec_id = T2.spec_id and tripathsy like ‘%\Cost Code%’
