Not Able to Submit or Approve Allocations, as Workflow Button Is Not Working Properly

(Doc ID 1932124.1)

Last updated on JUNE 23, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Retail Allocation - Version 14.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In Oracle Retail Allocation 14.0.x, users cannot approve certain allocations.   When choosing to allocate a purchase order (PO) with 3 virtual warehouses, after calculating the allocation, the Workflow button shows nothing; the user is thus not able to approve.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Create a single PO with one item for 3 virtual warehouses (all of which belong to the same physical WH).
  2. Go to Allocations and allocate the item using the PO as the source.
  3. Select "Manual" as Source Method; select 3 destination locations.  Do not select "Enforce Supply Chain".
  4. In the Results section, allocate quantities to the stores. (Each virtual WH will allocate to a different store.)
    WH1 - 10 units to STORE1
    WH2 - 5 units to STORE2
    WH1 - 0 units to STORE3
  5. Press "Workflow" button to approve the allocation.
