Oracle Agile PLM Framework - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When importing item with Autonumber, in case the item number matches with the one manually numbered through Web Client, below problem happens:

If the manually created item in Web Client is status:preliminary,
import overwrites manually created item

If the manually created item in Web Client is status:released,
import return following error.



The item 'P006' requires the it be placed onto a change because it is in a released or pending status, but you did not provide a change for import. This item/BOM/AML and attachment(s) will be rejected.
