Item Descriptions Inconsistent When Edited in RMS Item Children Diff Screen (Doc ID 2046649.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 24, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle Retail Merchandising System - Version 13.1.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In Oracle Retail Merchandising System (RMS) 13.1.x, when users update the item description on the item children diff screen, the change only occurs on the 'item_desc' column and not the 'short_desc' and 'desc_up' columns in the ITEM_MASTER table.  It is expected that the 'short_desc' and 'desc_up' columns in ITEM_MASTER would be updated with the new value, we well.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Add a new item differentiator.
  2. User is redirected to the Item Children Diff screen.
  3. Changes the description via the editable description box.
  4. Note that this update only affects the 'item_desc' column and not the 'short_desc' or the 'desc_up' values in ITEM_MASTER.  They retain their original values.
