Updating Quantity Limits for a Calculated Allocation Is Not Forcing Recalculation

(Doc ID 2182572.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 20, 2016

Applies to:

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


When Quantity Limits is updated or added after an allocation is already calculated, the system is not resetting the Allocation to worksheet and forcing a recalculation.  This is in contrast to the recalculation that does occur when we change the policy or the list of locations.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Create an Allocation with one Item and a set of Stores (in this case we used a What-If Allocation).
  2. Click “Calculate”.
  3. Go to “Manage Allocations” and search for the specific allocation.
  4. Edit existing allocation.
  5. Click on “Edit” Locations.
  6. Add a set of stores and save (click “Apply”).
  7. Window closes and brings you back to the Allocation Maintenance screen.
  8. Status changes to “Not Calculate” (which is correct).
  9. Click “Calculate”.
  10. Go to “Manage Allocations” and search for the specific allocation.
  11. Edit existing allocation.
  12. Click on “Quantity Limits” tab.
  13. Change “Minimum Pack Quantity” (or any other field) for one or more stores.
  14. Go back to the “Allocation Maintenance” – “Summary” section.
  15. Status remains “Calculated”, not forcing the user to recalculate the allocation.
