Throughout v12 and v13 versions the affect of deactivating a resource from the general properties page and/or the financial properties page has been inconsistent due to changes to the design.

The design has now been finalized when CLRT-69533 (KB TEC577441) was fixed in (patch 7 for 13.1.0), (patch 4 for 13.2) and in 13.3 and all newer releases :

EVERYTHING will get populated into the cost plan detail page and will be used for rate calculation regardless of the "Active" status on the resource's General or Financial properties pages, or whether the attribute itself is active/open

Here "Everything" refers to the resource's Name, Role, Input Type Code, Department, Location, Transaction Class, Resource Class, plus project/task Charge Code

The attached table illustrates the behaviors exist in v12, 13.0, 13.1, 13.2 and 13.3 (or 13.1.0 with patch 7+) versions as well as anything after 13.3.
