RMS Item Substitution Allows The User to Set Up an Item as a Substitute to Itself (Doc ID 2116084.1)

Last updated on MARCH 21, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Retail Merchandising System - Version 14.0.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In Oracle Retail Merchandising System (RMS) 14.0.2, when using Item Substitution and choosing a Warehouse, the system allows the user to substitute an item with itself.  Ideally an item should not be allowed to be its own substitute, either at the Store or at the Warehouse.

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Edit any item and go to "Substitute Item" link.
2. Click Add Location and select a Warehouse.
3. Add the Main Item as the Substitute Item.
3. When choosing a Warehouse, the system allows the user to create a Substitute Item as itself. There is no valid business justification for this.
