Symptoms


On version 7.3.1.2 in Production:

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
Using Business Modeler:
First set the parameter 'RunProportInMdp_add' to a value of Yes so that the mdp_add procedure will call the Proport procedure during the data load.
Then set 'Run_full_matrix_proport' parameter to a value of "all combinations".
This will set both parameters to a PVAL of 1 in the sys_params table, which is expected.

Problem is when the Proport is run, it acts as though the "only flagged combinations" setting was used for the 'Run_full_matrix_proport' parameter as opposed to the "all combinations" setting.
The "only flagged combinations" setting will set the PVAL = 0 in sys_params and will only update combinations that prop_changes = 1 in mdp_matrix table.


EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
Expect the Proport to update all combinations when the parameter 'Run_full_matrix_proport' is set to "all combinations".


STEPS
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Log in to the Business Modeler.
2. NAV: Parameters -> System Parameters.
3. Click on the Database tab.
4. Find the parameter 'Run_full_matrix_proport' and set to "all combinations".
5. Find the parameter 'RunProportInMdp_add' and set to "Yes".
6. Save the changes.
7. Run the Data Load.


BUSINESS IMPACT
The issue has the following business impact:
The proport procedure is not updating combinations according to the parameter settings which will impact the forecast of the combinations.
