February 22, 2017 WIPS Production Release

What's New:

  • Implemented enforcement of additional PIRL duplicate check rule:
    • Where the Date of Program Entry (PIRL 900) is null: If multiple records have the same Individual Identifier (PIRL 100), then no record can have the same Date of First Basic Career Service (Self-Service) (PIRL 1000).

BUG Fixes:

  • Valid value check updates to better enforce PIRL value rules, including:
    • Currency elements updated to allow valid entries, including 000000.00 (see table of affected elements on next page)
    • Corrected value check for element 412, Tenure with Employer at Separation, to identify error for non-numeric entries
