Symptoms

EnterpriseOne 9.1
When attempting to add an Assembly Inclusion Rule (AIR) in the Assembly Inclusion Rule Revisions (P3293) with a record that has a Branch/Plant (B/P) defined in the header, the system will not allow you to add a rule with a blank B/P. If you attempt to leave the B/P field blank, the system will default in the B/P from the header. However, from the Segment Revisions form (P3291) and taking the Copy function to Configured Item Segments - Copy Configured Item (P3299), the system allows you to Copy an existing configured item to a new item with the ‘To’ B/P defined. When doing this, the system is allowing the user to leave the Component Branch field blank. If you go into P3293 and click into the detail of the record, then attempt to save it, the system does error.

By allowing this, additional problems occur downstream as the system does not respect the blank B/P in rules processing. The system ignores the P3293 Header B/P of the P Rule and instead of using that B/P as the detail record is blank, the B/P of the sales order detail record of the configured parent is used.

In summary, we don't allow this blank B/P detail setup through direct-entry in P3293 but we do allow you to leave the Component Branch record blank when copying configured B/P-specific records. This Bug request is to close the gap/opportunity allowing users to copy configured records in which rules are defined branch-specific, but the component B/P is allowed to be blank.  This component B/P field should not be blank if the To B/P field is defined with a B/P. The ONLY time that the Component Branch can be left blank is if the To B/P is also defined as blank.

Steps to Duplicate:
1. Go to the Configured Item Segments - Work with Configured Items form (P3291). Click the check box of the desired configured item, and click the Copy button.
2. In the Configured Item Segments - Copy Configured Item form (P3299), define the To Configured Item and Branch/Plant. However, leave the Component Branch blank.
3. Click the OK button to accept the transaction.
4. Go to the P Rules (or any other AIRs copied) via P3293 and confirm that the system allowed the creation of the record with a blank B/P. If you click into the detail and click the OK button, the system does NOT error.
