The issue described in this document is known to Oracle, and a fix is already scheduled for future release.
This article will be updated as official patch becomes available.

When an item is deleted in Retail Merchandising System (RMS), the batch needs to be run. The purge batch in RMS then publishes an Item-Location modification message to the Store Inventory Management (SIM) application. In SIM, we find that these messages fail with the following eror:

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. In RMS, edit an item that also exists in SIM.
  2. Delete the item in RMS and run the DailyPurge batch.
  3. Ensure that RMS publishes the item-loc modification message to SIM.
  4. Query SIM database table RIB_MESSAGE_FAILURE and note that the incoming item-loc message failed with the above error.
