A Shipment Cannot Be Received At Container Level If It Contains Both Allocations And Transfer Distributions (Doc ID 2327012.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 04, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Retail Merchandising System - Version 16.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


It is not possible to receive a shipment at carton level if the carton contains Allocation and Transfer distributions at the same time.
RIB message contains the Distribution ID and Distribution Type at header level, however a carton might have mixed distributions included (at carton detail level).

It results in two different errors depending on what is the value of the L_rib_receipt_rec.document_type field in the input message.

  1. If it is set to "T", it fails on Allocations on the container: "Invalid transfer."
  2. If it is set to "A", it fails on Transfers on the container: "Location %s1 is not allocated to by allocation %s2".

Steps to recreate:

  1. Create a shipment with one container and make sure to include one transfer and one allocation in the container.
  2. Receive the shipment through RIB
  3. Notice the error.
