On :  PDC version, ImportExportPricing Utility

Issue :

ImportExportPricing (IEP) tool does not validate imported pricing for some data errors discussed below.


A package was edited manually in the XML and two balance elements with the same balanceElementNumCode were added. The package was imported OK while it should not be, because the same balance element cannot be defined twice ( this is  not possible in the UI ).

Steps to reproduce:

  1. ImportExportPricing -export MyData -config -pricing -profile -appsvruser weblogic -pdcuser pdcuser
  2. From the exported pricing xml, prepare an xml that contains one package, Example snippet below :  
  3. ImportExportPricing -import -pricing My_Package.xml -appsvruser weblogic -pdcuser pdcuser
  4. See that the above command returns a success.
  5. From pdc UI one can see the package and can see that there are two rows for same resource , under Balances tab.  This is not correct. So IEP tool should have somehow prevented user from loading the file.


ImportExportPricing tool should do validation of the above scenario and throw an error instead of successfully loading the data into the pricing database
