Hold cutoff accounting

Updated on January 18, 2022

When the PegaAcct-Step-FinCutoffType map value rule is set to Hold, the following cutoff processing occurs:

  • If the step is past cutoff, then an assignment is created in a cutoff work queue to wait for release on the next business day in the calendar.
  • Two activities set the release time (goal time) of the SLA for accounting held in cutoff. Both set the release time to the GMT value (using Pega date functions) from the date calculated via Java GregorianCalendar functions (which are local time zones).
  • The FinWorkBasketAccounting activity in the Work- class sets the goal time for the assignment SLA which waits before testing if accounting can be released. It sets the goal time based on the hours and minutes, which it gets from the FinReleaseTime data transform in the Rule-PegaAcct-Financial-Cutoff class, and uses java GregorianCalendar to add a day. It uses the hour attribute of the time (which again is local time zone). So, if the local time is between 00:00 and 00:59 it does not add a day, it just sets the hours and minutes – so the release time is later that day. The assignment pxGoalTime is set to a GMT value and correctly adjusts the date’s time using the Pega java routine DateTimeUtils fomatDateTimeStamp (java.util.Date).
  • The FinCheckCutoff activity in the Work- class resets the goal time when the SLA starts and is still past cutoff (has to be held). It just adds one day to the time using the GregorianCalendar in the same way as the activity above, which sets the original SLA time. It does not contain the logic for between midnight and 1 A.M.
