(Doc ID 2016554.1)

Applies to:

Oracle Retail Store Inventory Management - Version 13.2.8 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In Store Inventory Management (SIM) application, we find that when a stock count that is in 'Authorized' 'New' status is deleted, the following happens:

  1. RK_STORE_ITEM_SOH.LAST_APPROVED_STK_CNT_DATE gets updated with the current date, though the stock count is deleted
  2. RK_STORE_ITEM_SOH.TOTAL_QUANTITY is updated with the counted quantity -> Note that the stock count was not authorized
  3. SIM creates an inventory adjustment for the snapshot quantity minus the counted quantity difference
  4. SIM publishes an inventory adjustment create message to Retail Merchandising System (RMS)
  5. Any sales uploaded for the item after the delete operation are treated as late sales
  6. SIM creates unnecessary inventory adjustments for the late sales and publishes the same to RMS

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Create a unit product group for an item.
  2. Schedule it for today and take a snapshot.
  3. Check RK_STORE_ITEM_SOH table and note the total quantity and the last approved stock count date columns.
  4. Finish counting and ensure that the stock count is now in "Authorize" "New" status.
  5. Select the stock count and click on "Delete" button to delete the stock count.
  6. Query RK_STORE_ITEM_SOH and note that the TOTAL_QUANTITY column is updated with the counted quantity, and that the LAST_APPROVED_STK_CNT_DATE is updated with today's date.
  7. Upload sales for the same item using ResaFileParser.sh batch.
  8. Query RK_INV_ADJUSTMENT table and note that SIM has created a late sales inventory adjustment and published another inventory adjustment to RMS.
