'Save as' Function On BOM Items Removes Duplicated Components (Doc ID 2387026.1)

Last updated on MARCH 26, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Agile Product Collaboration - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Cannot use the 'Save as' function on BOM Items.

When using 'Save as' on an item that has two site level BOM; Common components are automatically being removed from the new Item's BOM.

Expect to be able to do a Save As function on Multi Site BOMs

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Logon to web Client
2. Find an existing BOM with muliti sites

Have an Agile item with 2 site level Bills of Material.  Where most of the BOM components are the same for each site.

Item Number                          Sites
> MFG-000xxxxx                     231
        15072858                       231
        15067377                       231
        15067424                       231
       15072914                        231
       15070298                        231
       15070015                        231  
       15109729                        231
       15072945                        231
> MFG-000xxxxx                    233     
       15072858                        233
       15067377                        233
       15067424                        233
       15072914                        233
       15070300                        233
       15070015                        233
       15072938                        233
       15072945                        233 

Click On Actions button and click the 'Save As' function

3. After Accepting the only option to  'continue' (Error for most users, warning for override user), the BOM's look like this

Item Number                          Sites
> MFG-000xxxxxx                 231
      15072858                       231
      15067377                       231
      15067424                       231
       15072914                      231
       15070298                      231
       15070015                      231  
       15109729                      231
       15072945                      231
 >MFG-000yyyyy                  233     
        15070300                     233
        15072938                     233   

The ‘Save As’ action removes any common component from the second site BOM. Leaves only the unique components.
Expected Result ‘Save As’ option should just copy the old item and its BOM components to the new item without removing
any BOM components. Note The system allows the user to manually re-add the components back into the second site’s BOM.
This is not a recursive BOM setting issue since it is 2 different sites.


Perform Save As receive Warning:  Duplicate Item Numbers that are not allowed have been automatically removed.
