API to Create Person Extra Information record

Salam Alaikum,

   It is one very important and widely used API that i share with you today... It is the API used to upload Extra Information for a person in Oracle HR. It is very simple and straight forward, and as you know each Extra Information has different (attributes/attribute type) so you have to consider getting to know some the dependencies (if exists) between the attributes before uploading.

   That being said, i share one simple API, with three attributes only:

DECLARE
   l_true                       BOOLEAN := FALSE;
   l_PERSON_ID                  NUMBER := 31785;
   l_INFORMATION_TYPE           VARCHAR2 (2000) := 'LAST_NAME_DETAILS';
   l_pei_information_category   VARCHAR2 (2000) := 'LAST_NAME_DETAILS';
   l_PEI_INFORMATION1           VARCHAR2 (2000) := 'Test1';
   l_PEI_INFORMATION2           VARCHAR2 (2000) := 'Test2';
   l_PEI_INFORMATION3           VARCHAR (200) := TO_CHAR (TO_DATE ('01-JAN-1999', 'DD-MON-YYYY'),'YYYY/MM/DD HH24:MI:SS');
   -- Output Variables
   l_PERSON_EXTRA_INFO_ID       NUMBER;
   l_OBJ                        NUMBER;

   CURSOR csr_ovn
   IS
      SELECT MAX (object_version_number)
        FROM per_all_people_f
       WHERE person_id = l_person_id;
BEGIN
   OPEN csr_ovn;
   FETCH csr_ovn INTO l_obj;
   CLOSE csr_ovn;

   HR_PERSON_EXTRA_INFO_API.CREATE_PERSON_EXTRA_INFO (
      p_validate                   => l_true,
      p_person_id                  => l_person_id,
      p_INFORMATION_TYPE           => l_INFORMATION_TYPE,
      p_pei_information_category   => l_pei_information_category,
      p_PEI_INFORMATION1           => l_PEI_INFORMATION1,
      p_PEI_INFORMATION2           => l_PEI_INFORMATION2,
      p_PEI_INFORMATION3           => l_PEI_INFORMATION3,
      p_PERSON_EXTRA_INFO_ID       => l_PERSON_EXTRA_INFO_ID,
      p_object_version_number      => l_obj);
END;

*note: the P_PERSON_EXTRA_INFO_ID and P_OBJECT_VERSION_NUMBER are both out parameters.

  Hope you found it useful, feel free to leave a comment if have any note on the subject.
