Symptoms


Remove Unreleased Lines from Shipments (R4277707)

When two consecutive partial releases from fulfillment are done before the original shipment is approved, and Remove Unreleased Lines from Shipments (R4277707) is run after each partial release, the result will be unfulfilled lines with a shipment number that is the same as a released shipment number.

There should never be released (shippable) and unfulfilled (unshippable) lines with the same shipment number.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Create a Fulfillment Management Transportation Order with 10 lines and one shipment number all with the same promised delivery date.
  2. Use Fulfillment Workbench to Fulfill 5 lines. Run R4277703 to Release 5 Lines. Run R4277707 to create a new shipment for unreleased lines.
    1. The 5 released lines will have the original shipment number
    2. The unfulfilled 5 lines will have a second shipment number
  3. Use Fulfillment Workbench to Fulfill 2 lines. Run R4277703 to Release 3 Lines. Run R4277707 to create a new shipment for unreleased lines.
    1. The 2 released lines go to the second shipment number.
    2. These should have consolidated on the original shipment number.
  4. The 3 unfulfilled lines go to the original shipment number.
  5. Now there are 3 unfulfilled and 5 released lines on the same shipment number.
  6. This is the problem. Now the transportation person is forced to remove the 3 unfulfilled lines from the original shipment number.

Workaround

If R4277707 is not called automatically from Fulfillment Release and is run only once as a standalone batch job at the end of the day, users should be able to make multiple releases from fulfillment the same day and generate one new shipment for the unreleased lines at the end of the day once it is determines that no more releases will be done and defined shipment has been approved and will be shipped.
