Old Item Locations Are Not Getting Purged From RPM_FUTURE_RETAIL Table

(Doc ID 2017187.1)

Applies to:

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


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.
