Old Item Locations Are Not Getting Purged From RPM_FUTURE_RETAIL Table (Doc ID 2017187.1)

Last updated on APRIL 24, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Retail Price Management - Version 13.2.6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In Oracle Retail Price Management (RPM) 13.2.x, we observe that historical promotions are not being purged from RPM_FUTURE_RETAIL during the conflict check process.  It is expected that promotions be purged based on RPM_SYSTEM_OPTIONS settings.


Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Select an item/location combination which has timelines older than 3 months in RPM_FUTURE_RETAIL.
  2. Ensure that this item/location has many old price events in the RPM_FUTURE_RETAIL table (older than 3 months from vdate).
  3. Create a simple promotion for this item/location combination on vdate+1.
  4. Approve the promotion so that conflict checking is conducted.
  5. Observe that both tables RPM_FUTURE_RETAIL and RPM_PROMO_ITEM_LOC_EXPL contain the old records, even if the PROMOTION_HIST_MONTHS have been set to 3 months in RPM_SYSTEM_OPTIONS.
