Oracle SSHR How to add validations on SIT (Special Information Type) – Fnd_flex_plsql

Posted by & filed under .

Validation on HR Special Info (SIT) in SSHR Pages:

Requirement: Our client has requirement, to apply validations on one of  SSHR request which was based on SIT. There is a Loan Request Form in SSHR which need to validate based on certain criteria while user filling form.

There is option available thru User hooks, which doesn’t work on SIT SSHR Pages for validations but works once the final approval is done.
To overcome above issue we will implement logic in FND_FLEX_PLSQL package.



Requirement: Validate Key Flexfield Combinations Using Fnd_flex_plsql

Filed under: Foundation — Tags: ebusiness, fnd_flex_plsql, fnd_flex_server, key flexfields, Oracle Applications, validations for key flexfields .
There are about 39 seeded Key flexfields (KFF) in 12.0.4 vision instance. For each of these KFFs we can create countless structures (depending the KFF) under respective applications. The beauty of these flexfields is that we can create a combination of values from a number of sources and yet store it in a single field. We have a number of features around flexfileds like using value sets that are vitually source values from any where in apps, security rules that can impose security of usage of values by a specific person or responsibility, cross validation rules that will not let you create undesired combination of values, if the combination is not created yet and more.

But no matter what Oracle gives as standard feature, we still need more. This question from an unappreciative user of forums resulted in a good find. If you have any need to write your own logic to validate creation of a combination, Oracle gives you a pre-hook for all key flexfields.You can write all your validations that you need (apart from using above mentioned features) before eBusiness suite creates one. If your validations fail, you can stop the creation of that combination.

The package name is fnd_flex_plsql. It comes with no logic in the body, but just returns boolean value of Ture. Specifically as the gl_code_combinations table does not have standard “WHO” columns, this might come handy to solve that issue.


You can check for the custom code by using the following SQLs

1) select text from all_source where name like ‘FND_FLEX_PLSQL’
2) select owner, object_name, object_type, status from dba_objects where
object_name = ‘FND_FLEX_PLSQL’;
