Oracle E-Business Suite, Time and Labor New Release 12.2.8  New Feature, Rollback Timecards from Projects Accounting

The ability to Rollback Timecards that have been transferred to Project Accounting is now available to users.

This new feature was released in 2018, in Oracle Time and Labor Release 12.2. HRMS RUP12 Patch 26787667

If you have previously experienced problems with costing hours in EBS Projects due to incorrect processing or incorrect/corrupted data coming from Oracle Time and Labor (OTL) Timecards and had to log a service request to get the data rolled back so you can re-transfer it, then this enhancement will greatly benefit you.

This new feature allows you to execute the Rollback in two ways.

  • If you wish to selectively choose and rollback Timecards for one person or one organization you can use the Rollback page.
  • Alternatively, if you wish to rollback the entire group of Timecards you can do so using a concurrent request program.

You can also view a list of previously submitted Rollback requests from the Recent Rollbacks Page. The page contains live links to allow you to access details of the Rollback (Request id) and the concurrent request log file output.

Here is a screenshot of what the Recent Rollbacks Page looks like:


From the Recent Rollbacks page, you can choose to launch a new Rollback if you wish to use the selective method of rolling back.

From here, you can choose one Timecard or a group of Timecards to be rolled back.


If you are confident in your selection criteria and do not wish to choose individual Timecards to be rolled back then you can go directly to the Concurrent Request / program method of rolling back.

The parameters are the same as those on the Rollback Page without the Timecard selection.


A very useful feature of this functionality is that the Rollbacks can take place in two modes, thereby allowing you to view and validate the data before committing the changes.

  • Validate
  • Validate and Process

For more information on this exciting new functionality, and others released in Oracle Time and Labor Release 12.2. HRMS RUP12 Patch 26787667, we recommend you review the following:
