(Doc ID 2306386.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 12, 2017

Applies to:

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


When an allocation is created using policy template from the drop down in the allocation maintenance screen (not by clicking edit and then using the drop down). Even though the history is existing in item_loc_hist , the need still comes up as zero. 

Steps To Recreate:

  1. Create a new policy template.
  2. Create standard allocation with a pack and add a single store. Ensure the component of the pack has history for the template dates.
  3. Use the drop down from the same screen and select the newly created template.
  4. Click on calculate.
  5. Noticed that need is coming up as zero.
