Receipt Workbench Error: Applying Receipt Generates Workflow Notification With Error - Local Event Error: oracle.apps.ar.applications.cashapp.apply

Receipt Workbench Error: Applying Receipt Generates Workflow Notification With Error - Local Event Error: oracle.apps.ar.applications.cashapp.apply
On : 12.1.1 version, Receipts Related

When attempting to apply a receipt, a notification is generated with the following error:

Local Event ERROR : oracle.apps.ar.applications.CashApp.apply
Event Error Message: No Event Subscriptions exist for this Event

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

Responsibility: Receivables Manager
Navigation: Receipts > Receipts
Apply a receipt to an invoice

Due to this issue, SYSADMIN mailbox is getting hundreds of notifications daily and  you are not sure whether the error requires an action from you to fix, or can be ignored.
Upgraded to 12.1.1
FND Debug log generated via Note:433199.1 How to enable and retrieve debug log messages shows the following:

Start executing rule function - PA_PWP_NOTIFICATION.Receive_BE [Start time 1301086012]
End executing rule function - PA_PWP_NOTIFICATION.Receive_BE [End time 1301086014] [Time taken - .02 secs]
Executed Rule Function PA_PWP_NOTIFICATION.Receive_BE and returned ERROR
saving event to WF_ERROR on TST.LAKECO.ORG

This is worked in unpublished Bug 8869818 and Bug 8993957 GSI R12.1.1 WFERROR GENERATED FOR "PA AR NOTIFICATION" (PAPWPAR). In the bug it says:

WFERROR is generated for "PA AR Notification"(PAPWPAR) even when the functionality is not in use( "AR Receipt Notification" is disabled
Automatic receipt creation program in AR triggers the Business event oracle.apps.ar.applications.CashApp.apply, this in turn triggers the subscription API PA_PWP_NOTIFICATION.Receive_BE in synchronous mode. In API PA_PWP_NOTIFICATION.Receive_BE
apps_inititalize was called which was resetting the context already set by AR program. This resetting of context was clearing out the request_id from the global variables and was causing performance impact in AR process.

If you do not need the PA AR Notification subscription then you can disable it as follows:

First login as SYSADMIN (you must have SYSADMIN privileges in order to update)

Responsibility: Workflow Administrator Web Applications
Navigation: Administrator Workflow > Business Events
- In Name field for search criteria enter 'oracle.apps.ar.applications.CashApp.apply'
- (B) Click Go
- It will show you one even under Results
- Under Subscription column, click on Subscription icon
- Go to update subscription "PA_PWP_NOTIFICATION.Receive_BE"
- Select Disable
- Apply
- This will disable the notifications to PA manager and will also bypass the call made to this particular API.

How To Change Font Type And Size Of Oracle Application Forms

How To Change Font Type And Size Of Oracle Application Forms

Is there a way to change the 6i Forms Font Type and Size in 11i Oracle Applications?


1. Oracle 11i Applications does not support the changing of the 6i Forms fonts.

2. We do support the standard windows functionality of Large and Small (standard) fonts in 11i Forms as part of our accessibility support. This is set through the windows control panel. Large fonts runs with a clientDPI of 120, Small fonts with a clientDPI of 96. If using Large fonts, everything in the Forms UI is bigger, so a window that just fitted with standard fonts may be too big to see everything all at once, since making the fonts bigger also makes the window bigger. So there is a trade off.

Before starting the Oracle 11i Applications, set the Font size on the Desktop/PC. The default/standard Font size on most Desktop/PC's is set to Small. To change the font size to Large on a Windows 2000 Desktop, open the Control Panel on the Desktop, then navigate to: Display > Settings > Advanced > General. Use the drop down to change the Font Size to 'Large Fonts'. (note: If the Large font is not installed on the PC, you will need the OS installation CD to install the Large fonts)
Apply the changes

One may want to play around with the Display settings to find the best setting for your monitor. (Control Panel > Display > Settings > Screen Area 1024x768, 1280x1024, ...)

NOTE: Do not update the windowsDPI in the fnd_top/resource/appsweb.cfg file. We do not support altering the clientDPI through the Forms configuration files. With standard windows dots per logical inch (DPI), the form layout is designed to work with
the available fonts on a particular client platform. Once you start changing the DPI, the font point size chosen as the best fit may not work and font clipping can occur.
