For the above actions, the Oracle FLEXCUBE ELCM system has the following functionalities
respectively:
2-11

Functions that is necessary for the system’s operation like Maintenance screens. These
can be input via:
Direct Transaction Input


Functions that support customer transactions like Transaction entry screens.
Direct Transaction Input refers to cases when complete transaction details are available and are
entered/ recorded in the system. After data entry, a user with proper Authorization Rights must
authorize the transaction in the same day.
Direct transaction input involves two screens:

Detailed screens – To enter or view all the data associated to the function/screen

Summary screens – To set values for a predefined set of fields and then query for results
based on it from the database.
Following actions are allowed for Direct Transaction Input:
2.7
Action
Select the action to
New
Create a new record
Modify
Modify an existing record
Close
Close a record. A closed record cannot be used for business transactions.
Reopen
Reopen a closed record
Delete
Delete a record from the database. A deleted record cannot be recovered.
Authorize
Authorize a record. Authorization of a record enables it for business transactions.
Query
Query a record from database. The query condition is based on the values provided
for the primary fields. Use the Summary screen to query records for any other
criterion. Query action gives only one record or no record as a result since it is
based on just the primary field of the record.
Copy
Copy a record for re-using the entries in it for another record. You must query a
record in order to copy. All the values except for primary fields are retained in Copy
action.
Data Entry Screen Features
The following sections explain features commonly seen in most ‘Detailed’ screens and other
screens which allow data entry.
2.7.1 Field Types
You will encounter three types of fields in most screens:

Mandatory fields

Optional fields

Conditional fields
2-12
Mandatory Fields
Of the many fields in a screen, the inputs to some may be mandatory. This means that you
cannot save your record without giving a valid input in such fields. Mandatory fields are denoted
by an * in red.
Optional Fields
The inputs to some of the fields in a screen may be optional. You may or may not give an input to
such fields. Further, an optional field may have a default value; a value that the system puts in the
field if you do not enter anything. Unless you change this default value, it will be taken as the
input to the field. However, please note that all optional fields need not have default values. It is
possible that some fields can be left blank.
Conditional Fields
There are some fields, which take input based on data in some other field(s). For example, in the
Loans and deposits module, you have to specify the Cluster ID only if you are processing a
deposit. It is not unusual that a conditional field also has a default.
2.7.2 LOVs
Inputs to certain fields can be selected from the option list provided with the field. This option list
will contain values that are valid inputs to the field. If a field has an option list, it will have an icon
against it.
For example, consider the following field:
This field requires you to specify the country for an operation. If you click the option list, the
system will display all valid inputs permitted to this field, as shown:
From this list, you can select an appropriate value. You will come across option lists whenever an
entry into a field is based on prior records.
2-13
2.7.3 Multi Record Blocks
At times, you may need to maintain a number of records of the same nature, as part of a single
transaction. Multi record blocks provides for such maintenances. Following is an example of a
multi record block.
In the above instance, you can maintain a number of covenant names within the same screen.
You may add more rows to the table using ‘Plus’ button. At any time during the entry, if you feel
that a particular row is not required, you can check the box adjacent to the row and click ‘Minus’
to remove it. Additionally, you can view further details of a single record on the multi record block
using ‘Details’ button.
2.7.4 Maker/Checker Details
Maker is a user who actually inputs details into the system. The system requires each such entry
to be verified by a different user, called ‘Checker’. Towards the bottom, on most screens, you will
observe some details as shown:
This portion of the screen displays the following details:
2.8

Maker: This is the name of the maker, who has actually input the details. The date and
time of this entry is displayed adjacent to it.

Checker: This is the name of the checker who verifies the details. The date and time of
verification is displayed adjacent to it.
Summary Screens
You can maintain a number of records in the system. A summary screen serves as a single
window to access all records that bear the same characteristics. Summary screens display the
details pertaining to each such record in a tabular format. You can browse such details and view
the actual record on clicking a result record.
2-14
On a summary screen, you can query the records based on various parameters. For instance, on
the above screen, you can specify an Authorization Status in the given space and click ‘Search’
button to view all records that uses the same transaction code. Similarly, you can query the
details based on different parameters, specific to each screen.
Advanced Search
The results displayed in usual summary view may amount to hundreds. To avoid wading through
this mass of data, you can make a query to see only those records which are relevant to you at a
particular time. The Advanced Search screen makes this possible. For this, click ‘Advanced
Search’ button.
2-15
2.9
Automatic Authorization
If automatic authorization has been enabled for a function, branch and user profile, and such a
user has rights for both input and authorize operations, any record maintained by such a user in
the corresponding function (maintenance or online) screens will be automatically authorized when
the Save operation is performed.
When automatic authorization takes place,

The authorization screen is not opened. Authorization is considered as full or complete
authorization, which would mean that all unauthorized changes to the record would be
authorized.

The re-key fields configured for authorization in respect of the function are not required to
be entered by the user.

Messages in respect of overrides are not displayed, but are internally authorized.
Similarly, overrides requiring confirmation are also automatically confirmed.

Any applicable online message are generated and displayed. The user can respond
based on the error type – For ‘Ignore’ error types, the system automatically generates the
messages; for ‘Override’ error types, the user is prompted about whether message
generation is required; for ‘Error’ error types, messages are not generated.

The user’s authorization limit is checked when automatic authorization takes place

The maker/ checker validation is not performed when automatic authorization takes place
2-16
2.10 User Defined Fields (UDF)
You may wish to have your own additional fields in the Oracle FLEXCUBE ELCM system. These
fields can be for your convenience or to suit the requirements of your bank. Limit Server facilitates
this via the User Defined Fields (UDF) feature.
For you each UDF you can specify default values and validations for the field. Oracle FLEXCUBE
ELCM system will validate all entries made using validations you define for a field.
2.10.1 Maintaining User Defined Fields
User Defined Fields can be defined using the ‘User Defined Field Maintenance’ screen. You can
invoke the ‘User Defined Field Maintenance’ screen by typing ‘UDDMNTFN’ in the field at the top
right corner of the Application tool bar and clicking the adjoining arrow button.
Field Name and Description
To identify a field that you create name it with a unique identifier. Each field that you define in
Oracle FLEXCUBE ELCM should be assigned a unique code. You can briefly describe the field in

Invalid Logins – Cumulative and Successive
You can specify the allowable number of times an invalid login attempt is made by a user. Each
user accesses the system through a unique User ID and password. While logging on to the
system, if any of these are provided wrongly, it amounts to an invalid login attempt.
Against ‘Cumulative’ specify the maximum allowable number of cumulative invalid attempts made
during the course of a day or made at a time. In either case, if the number of invalid attempts
exceeds the specified number, the user ID will be disabled.
Against ‘Successive’ specify the maximum number of successive invalid login attempts. If the
number of invalid attempts exceeds the specified number, the user ID will be disabled.
3-2
Once specified, you can change the allowable number of cumulative or successive login
attempts, provided you do so only at a time when no users are logged in to the system.
When authentication of credentials is unsuccessful due to an incorrect user ID, then the user id
will not be logged in the audit logs. In case the user id is correct and the password is wrong, the
attempt is logged in the audit log and the successive and cumulative failure count is incremented.
When the user id and password are correct, this is logged into the audit logs.
Idle Time
Specify the allowable idle time (in seconds) that a user can spend without performing any activity,
after logging in to the system. If no activity has been performed up to the end of stipulated idle
time, the user is automatically signed off when the idle time has elapsed.
You can specify the idle time as any period between 30 and 600 seconds, inclusive.
Override Idle Time in Seconds
Specify the allowable time (in seconds) within which a response to an override must be entered. If
no response is given up to the end of stipulated override idle time, the response to the override is
deemed as ‘Cancel’, which means the override has been rejected.
Password Repetitions
You can stipulate the number of previous passwords that cannot be set as the new current
password, when a password change occurs.
Force Password Change after
The password of a user can be made valid for a fixed period after which a password change
should be forced. In the ‘Force Password Change after’ field, you can specify the number of
calendar days for which the password should be valid. After the specified number of days has
elapsed for the user’s password, it is no longer valid and a password change is forced.
The number of calendar days defined here will be applicable for a password change of any nature
- either through the ‘Change Password’ function initiated by the user or a forced change initiated
by the system.
Intimate Users (before password expiry)
The number of days for which a password is to be valid is defined in the ‘Force Password
Change’ after field. You can also indicate the number of working days before password expiry
that a warning is to be issued to the user. When the user logs into the system (the stipulated
number of days before the expiry date of the password), a warning message will be displayed,
which will be displayed till the password expires.
Archival Period in Days
You can specify the period (in calendar days) for which the audit trail details of system security
related activities (such as usage of the system by a user, activities by the system administrator,
etc.) should be maintained. You can specify an archival period that is greater than or equal to 7
calendar days.
Force Password change for a new user/Reset
You can indicate whether a new user should be forced to change the user password during the
first login after the profile is created. If you indicate so, when a new user logs in for the first time
after the profile has been created, a password change will be mandated by the system.
3-3
Minimum Days between Password Changes
You can specify the minimum number of calendar days that must elapse after a user changes the
user password, after which the user can effect another password change. After a user has
changed the user password, it cannot be changed again until the number of days you specify
here has elapsed.
Dormancy Days
You can set the system to automatically disable the profile of all the users who have not logged in
for a specified period of time.
A user ID is considered dormant if the difference between the last login date and the current date
is equal to or greater than the number of ‘Dormancy Days’ that you specify here. This is inclusive
of holidays.
All dormant users (whose home branch is same as the current branch) are disabled during the
end of day run at the current branch.
You can modify the number of Dormancy Days only when your branch is in the transaction
input stage.
Display Legal Notice
Select this check box to use the ‘Warning Screen Text’ option.
Warning Screen Text
At your bank, you may require a warning message containing legal requirements and security
policy to be displayed to all users before allowing them to login to Oracle FLEXCUBE ELCM.
You can specify the text (content) of such a message, in the Warning Screen Text field. This
message will be displayed soon after a user initiates login. The user will be allowed to continue
with the login process only after he clicks ‘OK’ button on the message window.
You can modify the contents of the message only during the transaction input stage. The
changes will come into effect during the next login by a user.
You will be allowed to specify the contents of the warning message only if the ‘Display Legal
Notice’ option is enabled.
Password Length (characters) – Maximum and Minimum
You can indicate the range of length (in terms of number of characters) of a user password. The
number of characters in a user password is not allowed to exceed the maximum length, or fall
below the minimum length that you specify here.
The minimum length defaults to 8, and the maximum length to 15. You can change the defaults
and specify the required range. If you do so, you can specify a minimum length between 6 and 15
characters, and a maximum length between 10 and 15 characters. The minimum length that you
specify must not exceed the maximum length that you have specified.
3-4
Maximum Consecutive Repetitive Characters
You can define the maximum number of allowable repetitive characters occurring consecutively,
in a user password. This specification is validated whenever a user changes the user password,
and is applicable for a password change of any nature - either through the “Change Password”
function initiated by the user or a forced change initiated by the system.
Minimum Number of Special Characters in Password
You can define minimum number of special characters allowed in a user password. The system
validates these specifications only when a user chooses to change the password.
If you do not specify the limits, the following default values will be used:

Minimum No of Special Characters = 1
Minimum Number of Numeric Characters in Password
Likewise, you can also to define the minimum number of numeric characters allowed in a user
password. The system validates the password only when a user chooses to change his
password.
If you do not specify the limits, the following default values will be used:

Minimum No of Numeric Characters = 1
You can specify any number between 0 and 11 in each of these fields. However, you must
ensure that the sum total of the minimum number of special characters and the minimum number
of numeric characters is less than or equal to the ‘Maximum Password Length’.
Minimum Number of Lower Case Characters in Password
You can define the minimum number of lowercase characters allowed in a user password. The
allowed lower case characters are from the US-ASCII character set only. The system validates
these specifications only when a user chooses to change the password
If you do not specify the limits, the following default values will be used:

Minimum No of Lower Case Characters = 1

Maximum No of Numeric Characters = Maximum Password Length
Minimum Number of Upper Case Characters in Password
You can define the minimum number of upper case characters allowed in a user password. The
allowed upper case characters are from the US-ASCII character set only. The system validates
these specifications only when a user chooses to change the password

The screensaver interval maintained at user level should be always be less than or equal to that
maintained at bank level.
If screensaver interval is not specified in user level, the system will take the interval from bank
parameter maintenance.
The screensaver interval can be specified by the user only if ‘Screensaver Modifiable at User
Level’ is checked in the bank parameter maintenance.
3.2.1 Specifying Branch Restrictions
You can restrict administrators of branches from performing operations related to specific
functions in branches other than their home branch. These are referred to as ‘Branch Restrictions
for Specific Applications’. You can also maintain a list of branches in which the administrator of a
certain branch is allowed / restricted to perform specific operations. These other restrictions are
referred to as ‘Common Branch Restrictions’.
According to the restrictions you maintain, the administrator of a specific branch is allowed to
perform specific operations in the administrator’s home branch, as well as any branch found in
the list of allowed branches.
According to your requirements, the implementers at your installation configure a list of the
specific functions or applications for which you might wish to maintain such branch restrictions.
You can maintain branch restrictions for each of these applications, as required.
In the Branch Restrictions screen, you can specify the applications for which you intend to
maintain branch restrictions. To invoke the ‘Branch Restrictions’ screen, click ‘Branch

Disallowed
Choose the ‘Allowed’ option to maintain an allowed list, and the ’Brach Restrictions’ list will show
the list of allowed branches. Choose the ‘Disallowed’ option, to maintain a disallowed list of
branches. If you maintain an ‘allowed’ list, then the role profile will be available only for those
branches that you specify in the Branch Restrictions list. Similarly, if you maintain a ‘disallowed’
list, then the role profile will not be available only for those branches that you specify in the
Branch Restrictions list.
After choosing either the ‘Allowed’ or ‘Disallowed’ option, click ‘Plus’ button to add a record under
the ‘Branch Restrictions’ list. Into each added record field select the required branch by clicking
the field’s option list.
Password Restriction
You can define a list of passwords that cannot be used by a user. This list, called the Restrictive
Passwords list can be defined at three levels:

At the bank level (applicable to all the users of the system)

At the user role level (applicable for all the users doing a similar kind of role)

At the user level (applicable for the user)
The list of Restrictive Passwords should contain those passwords that the users are most likely to
use: the name of your bank, city, country, etc. For a user role, it could contain names, or terms,
that are commonly used in the department. At the user level, it could contain the names of loved
ones, etc. By disallowing users from using such common passwords, you can reduce the risk of
somebody other than the user knowing the password.
Click ‘Password Restriction’ button to define the list of Restrictive Passwords for the role profile
you are defining. Any user, who is attached to the role, cannot use a password in this list.

In the ‘Currency Definition’ screen you can define and maintain the attributes of currencies which
your bank deals in. The attributes include the SWIFT code for the currency, the country to which
the currency belongs, the interest method, the spot days, the settlement days, and many others.
You can define and maintain currency details only at your bank’s Head Office. The maintained
details will then be available to all the branches of your bank. You can invoke the ‘Currency
Definition’ screen by typing ‘CODCDEFN’ in the field at the top right corner of the Application tool
bar and clicking the adjoining arrow button.
Enter the following details:
Code
Specify the currency code of the currency being defined.
Alternate Code
Specify the alternate code used to identify the currency.

Transactions received before the cut-off times for the transaction currency will be processed on
the same day. Transactions received after the currency cut-off time will be processed the next
working day. Specify the Cut-Off Time for the currency using the following fields:

Days

Hour

Minute
Index Currency
Indicates that the maintained currency is a Notional Currency
Euro Conversion
Indicates that the maintained currency falls under Euro Conversion Required
Rounding
If you have selected Round Up or Round Down in the Rounding Rule field, you need to indicate
the nearest unit to which the rounding should take place. The number of units specified here
should not be greater than the number of decimals allowed for the currency.
Example
The decimal points specified for currency ‘A’ is 2. Rounding unit is .05
Amount for transaction is USD 100.326, which will be rounded off depending upon the decimals specified
and the rounding rule and rounding unit.
For Rounding Rule ‘Up’, the amount available for transaction would be USD 100.35. For rounding rule
‘Down’, the transaction amount would have been rounded down to 100.30
If the rounding rule was specified as ‘truncate’ then, the amount would have rounded off to 100.32 (simply,
knock off all decimal points beyond the stated decimals places to be rounded off). Thus whenever you
specify a ‘truncate’ option you need not state the ‘Rounding unit’.
Amount Format Mask
Specify the format in which amounts in this currency are to be displayed for contracts in this
currency. Two options are available:

999,999,999

9,999, 999, 99
The system defaults to the 999,999,999 format.
Euro Type
By choosing the appropriate option, you can indicate if the currency is one of the following:

The Euro

An ‘In’ currency

An ‘Out’ currency

‘Euro Closed’
5-3
National currencies of ‘In’ countries are referred to as ‘In’ currencies. When maintaining other
currencies, you have to choose the ‘Out Ccy’ option under Euro Type.
When the transition period ends, the national currencies of the participating countries would
cease to exist as valid legal tenders. The Euro would be the only legal tender in the participating
countries. Consequently, the Euro changes made to Oracle FLEXCUBE ELCM will no longer be
required.
You can turn off the changes at the end of the transition period by:

Closing all ‘In’ currencies, and

Choosing the ‘Euro Closed’ option (for the Euro)
5.3.1 Performing Currency Country Mapping
You can do mapping of currency countries to the currency using the Currency Country Mapping
screen. To invoke this, click ‘Currency Country Mapping’ button.
For each record, select a Country Code and then give its name/description.
5.4
Maintaining Currency Pairs for Foreign Exchange
Certain currency pairs are frequently traded in foreign exchange (ForEx) markets. The exchange
rates for such common currency pairs - like USD & GBP or USD & JPY - are easily obtainable.
For currency pairs wherein a currency is not traded in often – like ZAR-INR (South African Rand Indian Rupee) – the ForEx rate is determined through a third currency. This third currency is
called the ‘Through Currency’ and is usually a commonly quoted currency like the US dollar.
You can maintain the ForEx currency pairs common to your business in the ‘Currency Pair
Maintenance’ screen. This maintenance is done at the Bank Head Office level. Invoke this screen
from the Menu Browser. You can invoke the ‘Currency Pair Maintenance’ screen by typing
‘CODCPAIR’ in the field at the top right corner of the Application tool bar and clicking the
adjoining arrow button.
5-4
In the above screen you can maintain commonly traded currency pairs (for which a regular
market quote is readily available) and their details. For un-common pairs you can specify and
maintain a ‘Through Currency’.
Currency 1 and Currency 2
Here specify the currency pairs by their currency codes. You can also give brief
descriptions/names of the currencies.
Through Currency
Select this check box to maintain a Through Currency for the currency pair.
For commonly traded currency pairs a regular market quote is readily available. For un-common
pairs you must specify and maintain a ‘Through Currency’ to calculate the market quotes.
For the Through Currency you must specify the following:

Currency Code

Description or name of the currency

Quotation Method – Direct or Indirect

Number of Units for the quotation

Spread Definition for the quotation

7. End of Day Process
7.1
Introduction
The objective of the End of Day (EOD) cycle and processes is to perform the revaluation of
operation and system date changes i.e. moving the Limit Server application date to the next
working date.
EOD cycles in Oracle FLEXCUBE ELCM have a certain predefined stages/status which happens
in the order given below:

Mark End of Transaction Input (Mark EOTI)

Post End of Transaction Input (Post EOTI)

Date Change (DTCHG)

Post Beginning of day (Post BOD)

Mark Transaction Input (Mark TI)
Before running an EOD cycle there are some basic maintenances which you must do. These
maintenances are explained below.
7.2
System Date Maintenance
The next working day for a particular branch has to be maintained in the ‘System Date
Maintenance’ screen.
For details on System Date Maintenance, refer the section in the Core chapter of this User
Manual
7-1
7.3
Maintaining Mandatory Batch Programs
Batch operations like Facility Batch, Reval (Collateral, currency) batch etc to be run during EOD
cycle, their details must to be maintained using the ‘Mandatory Batch Program Maintenance’
screen. You can invoke the ‘Mandatory Batch Program Maintenance’ screen by typing
‘EIDMNPRO’ in the field at the top right corner of the Application tool bar and clicking the
adjoining arrow button.
Enter the following details:
Branch
Specify the Branch Code for which the batches need to be maintained.
Function Identification
Specify the Batch Name / function Id of the batch needs to be specified by using the list available
here.
End of Cycle Group
The end of cycle (EOC) group that the batch needs to be run during EOD cycle has to be
indicated here.
Error Handling
Indicate the action that must be taken if the EOD process runs into an error. You can indicate
either of the following:

Stop automatic EOD and run emergency program

Continue with the Automatic EOD program
7-2
Module
Specify the module with regard to which the batch process is executed.
Sequence Number
Specify the sequence number of the batch process.
All the branches maintained in the limits server are maintained in the End of Day Batch Start
screen. You can invoke this screen by typing ‘AEDEODST’ in the field at the top right corner of
the application toolbar and clicking the adjoining arrow button.
AEOD cycle processes the following stages:

Mark End of Transaction Input - During Mark EOTI the unauthorized transactions, holiday
maintenance check and the pending processes as part of Post Mark TI is checked. All
the unsuccessful batches are rerun as part of Mark EOTI. The branch status of the
successful transactions are changed to EOTI.

Post End of Transaction Input - All the batches maintained for branch under EOC
process are run at this stage.

Date Change - The system date, branch date, branch application date are changed to the
next working date at this stage.

Post Beginning of Day - All the batches maintained for branch under EOC process are
run at this stage.

Mark Transaction Input - Mark TI checks and reruns all the unsuccessful batches as part
of Post BOD.
All the above process can be viewed using AEOD Monitor screen. You can invoke this screen by
typing ‘AESEODMR’ in the field at the top right corner of the application toolbar and clicking the
adjoining arrow button.
7-3
7.4
EOD Batch Processing Post EOTI
As a part of EOD batch processing in POST EOTI there are certain batches to be run in a specific
order as mentioned below.
7.4.1 Market Revaluation Batch (Screen Code: ELBMRKAT)
The price of the security changes every day. This price change should effect the market value
based collateral, and in turn the collateral contribution to line code. This process of recalculation
due to security price change is called Security Revaluation.
7.4.2 Currency Revaluation Batch (Screen Code: ELBCYREV)
Currency Revaluation - Due to exchange rate variation every day, the value of the limit available
amount will be made recalculated. This process of recalculation due to exchange rate variation is
Currency Revaluation.
This batch takes care of the revaluation of Limit Contribution as a part of collateral due to change
in Exchange rates. This is only if the collateral currency and collateral pool currency are different
and there is a change in exchange rate between the two pairs maintained for Collateral and
Collateral Pool.
This batch also takes care of revaluation of Collateral Contribution as a part of Facility
maintenance due to change in Exchange rates. This is only if the Collateral Pool currency and
Facility currency are different and there is a change in exchange rate between the two pairs
maintained for Collateral Pool and Facility.
7.4.3 Limits and Collateral Revaluation Batch
7-4
The Limits Revaluation batch is run during the End of Transaction Input stage.
Collateral revaluation recalculates the collateral amount contribution to the line code subjected to
the change in the collateral value. The records with changed collateral values are picked up and
the linked line code amount is updated.
7.4.4 Collateral Batch (Screen Code: ELBCOLAT)
As a part of collateral batch all the expired collaterals will be taken up and the their respective
limit contribution will be made to zero and the corresponding linked Collateral Pools and Facility
will be updated with the latest value.
Collateral batch (GEBCOLAT) also processes the haircut revision for the effective date. As part of
the collateral batch during BOD, the haircut percentage is applied on the collateral on the
effective date of the haircut maintained. And system runs the existing revaluation process of the
collateral for the applied haircut.
The table below explains ELCM batches maintained as part of Oracle FLEXCUBE EOD
mandatory programs and these batches are executed before Mark EOFI stage of Oracle
FLEXCUBE.

7.4.5 Running EOD Process
Before running EOD process in Oracle FLEXCUBE, you need to check the unauthorized
transactions in ELCM system.
On starting the common EOD cycle the following stages will occur:
1. As a part of MarkEOTI process,

If there are any errors in marking the EOTI in ELCM, then ELCM will abort the EOD
process with the ELCM error.

All the unauthorized, pending transactions and unsuccessful batches are re-run.
2. After marking the EOTI,

All the batches maintained under the EOC process are run as part of Post EOTI. During
this stage the system date, branch date and branch application date is changed to the
next working date.

If any error occurs as part of ELCM batch process, then will mark ELCM batch as aborted
3. As part of Post BOD all batches under EOC process are run. The facility batch and the
archival batch is maintained as part of Post BOD.
4. If any ELCM batches are attached as part of post EOFI, then system triggers ELCM batch.
5. As part of ‘Date Change’ process, Oracle FLEXCUBE ELCM triggers ‘Date Change’ process
in ELCM.
7-5
6. If any ELCM batches are attached as part of BOD, then system triggers ELCM batch.
7. As part of ‘MarkTI’ process, all the unsuccessful batches as part of Post BOD are re-run and
Oracle FLEXCUBE ELCM would trigger ‘MarkTI’ process in ELCM.
