API to update HR Jobs in oracle apps R12 (PER_JOBS) (HR_JOB_API.UPDATE_JOB)












This post is for Updating JOBS in HR Module. I have prepared a small script which can used to update the JOBS in Oracle Apps R12. Before we get into script, let have a brief introduction to related tables.


  1. PER_JOB_GROUPS is used to group records contained in PER_JOBS. Each Job Group has to be within a business group unless the profile option HR: Cross Business Group Profile is set to 'N' in which case a Job Group can have a NULL Business Group (considered to be a Global Job Group). Jobs in Global Job Groups can be viewed across the system. All HR jobs, i.e., those jobs used within the HRMS system, must be defined within a 'Default HR Job Group'. The default HR Job Group is created at the same time a Business Group is created.
  2. PER_JOBS holds jobs that have been defined for a Business Group. The
    NAME is a concatenation of key flexfield segments, held in PER_JOB_DEFINITIONS. Jobs define the role that an employee can perform in the business group, and they are independent of specific organizations. Each Job is contained within a Job Group.
  3. PER_JOBS_TL: Translated columns for per_jobs
  4. PER_JOB_DEFINITIONS is a key flexfield combinations table. It holds
    the segment combinations for jobs that are stored in PER_JOBS. Oracle
    Applications do not support code combinations IDs that exceed 2,000,000,000.

Tested Version: R12.2.4

Script:
DECLARE
  lv_lang                  VARCHAR2(50)   DEFAULT 'US';
  lv_job                   VARCHAR2(2000) DEFAULT 'SHARE.ORACLEAPPS';
  lv_new_job_name          VARCHAR2(200)  DEFAULT 'SHARE.ORACLEAPPSNEW';
 
  ln_business_group_id          NUMBER;
  ln_job_group_id               NUMBER; 
  ln_job_id                     NUMBER;
  ln_object_version_number      NUMBER;
  ln_job_definition_id          NUMBER;
  lb_valid_grades_changed_warn  BOOLEAN;
 
BEGIN
 
  -- get job details
  BEGIN
    SELECT job_id,
           job_definition_id,
           object_version_number
      INTO ln_job_id,
           ln_job_definition_id,
           ln_object_version_number
      FROM per_jobs
     WHERE name = lv_job;
  EXCEPTION
    WHEN OTHERS THEN
      dbms_output.put_line('Unable to get the job details.Error:'||SQLERRM);
      RAISE;
  END;

  HR_JOB_API.UPDATE_JOB
  (p_validate                      => FALSE
  ,p_job_id                        => ln_job_id
  ,p_object_version_number         => ln_object_version_number
  ,p_comments                      => 'TEST JOB Updated'
  ,p_concat_segments               => lv_new_job_name
  ,p_language_code                 => lv_lang
  ,p_job_definition_id             => ln_job_definition_id
  ,p_name                          => lv_job
  ,p_valid_grades_changed_warning  => lb_valid_grades_changed_warn 
  ,p_effective_date                => SYSDATE
  );
 
  DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE('JOB ID: '||ln_job_id);
  DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE('OBJECT_VERSION_NUMBER: '||ln_object_version_number);
  DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE('JOB_DEFINITION_ID: '||ln_job_definition_id);
  DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE('JOB_NAME: '||lv_job);
EXCEPTION
    WHEN OTHERS THEN
      dbms_output.put_line('Unable to create a job.Error:'||SQLERRM);
      RAISE; 
END;
