Symptoms

For Profitability Manager (PFT) 12.0.6, when you load Mapping Rules from a Test environment to a Production environment using the iSetup Load program, the following error occurs in the iSetup Load's View Log:

Name: FEM_MAPPING_RULE
Type: BC4J

An error also occurs when generating the Deployment Report:

"Exceptions while generating Deployment Report
oracle.xml.parser.v2.XMLParseException: Unexpected EOF."

The error prevents the Load process from importing any rules.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Go to the iSetup responsibility
  2. Go to Migrations > Loads
  3. Click Create
  4. Enter a Name and select an Extract to load
  5. On Step 2 of 3, select the "Deployment Report" box
  6. Submit the Load request

The load ends with the error above.
