Oracle Commerce Merchandising - Version 11.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Addition and removal of parent category before saving the changes does not remove the parent category from parent category list in BCC.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Addition and removal of parent categories before saving the changes should not show the newly added and removed parent category in parent category list in BCC and update the parent categories properly. 

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Login to BCC
  2. Create a project
  3. Go to any category and view the parent categories property
  4. Create a new parent category and then remove it before saving the changes
  5. Click on Save to update the category page
  6. Observe that the newly added and removed parent category is listed as a parent category


BUSINESS IMPACT
-----------------------
The bug can cause data consistency issues. If a product or category item has multiple parent categories and if user simply adds and removes a category, it will not be removed from the parent category list.
