RDF: New Item Automation Plugin Throws Errors When Hierarchies Are Non-GA (Doc ID 2172510.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 17, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Retail Demand Forecasting - Version 15.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The below error is thrown when executing the RDF automation plugin for the New Item using the Configuration Tools:


It is identified that the error occurs when the product hierarchy naming is different from what automation expects.  In the reported case, Retail Demand Forecasting (RDF) expects "item" as the base hierarchy; however, the user's configuration contains "bgrp" instead.  When using a modified product hierarchy level that matches the "item" base dimension, the automation runs correctly.

Apparently, it is not possible to execute New Item automation for a dimension that is not included in the base hierarchy.
