The Merch_Type Comes as '0' on RPM_PROMO_DTL_MERCH_NODE Table for a Department Level Simple Promotion (Doc ID 2221066.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 03, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Retail Price Management - Version 15.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


A Fatal exception is thrown while trying to Submit/Approve a merchandise hierarchy promotion. The promotion got submitted after some time, but the merch_type comes as '0' (Item level) on RPM_PROMO_DTL_MERCH_NODE table.



You expect the promotion should get approved successfully in RPM and merch_type should be displayed as '3' in RPM_PROMO_DTL_MERCH_NODE table for Dept level promotion.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a simple promotion in RPM at Dept level (by selecting a single Dept in Item Selection pane). Class, Subclass remains empty.
2. Click on Apply.
3. Select the location as Zone and submit/approve the promotion.
