E1: 42: Inventory Commitment Preference Does Not Check for Obsolete Items (Doc ID 2829840.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 17, 2022

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Sales Order Entry - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Inventory Commitment Preference is committing inventory to Item Branch records with O-Obsolete Stocking Type during Sales Order Entry.

The issue was duplicated by Oracle Support with the following steps:

Item has four branch plants
   a. Canadian Selling branch (77)
   b. Three US Supply Branches (10,20,30)
   c. One Supply Branch (10) has Stocking Type = O – Obsolete

Item Availability (P41202) shows Branch 30 has 27 items, Obsolete Branch 10 has 1 item. Other Branches zero Items.

Inventory Commitment Advanced Preference is setup as follows
   a. Branch 30 is first preference branch
   b. Branch 20 is second preference branch
   c. Branch 10 is third preference branch

Setup a version of SO Entry (P4210) for Intercompany Orders (SI Order Type) with Inventory Commitment Advanced Preference.

Create Sales Intercompany Order
   a. Canadian Customer 4277
   b. Canadian Header Branch 77
   c. Order Quantity 30
   d. Leave Detail Branch Blank
   e. Edit the line


No Error or Warning is returned for the Obsolete item. Header Branch 77 Defaults in as the Backorder Branch. Shippable Quantity is 28 and Backorder Quantity is 2. Click Submit and Close.

The sales order is created for 30 items
   a. Line 1.000 has 1 item soft committed to the Obsolete item branch 10
   b. Line 1.001 has 27 items soft committed to the first preferred branch 30
   c. Line 1.002 has 2 items backordered to the Header Branch 77
   d. Issue is duplicated

Go into Order Detail Revisions and cancel the line with Branch Plant 10 and add another line with Branch Plant 10 manually.
   a. The message “Warning – Item is Obsolete” (013M) appears and the line is cancelled (status 980/999).
The client wants the Inventory Commitment Preference to return error and not commit inventory to the line.
