Inconsistency With Handling Bill Back Rebate Deal Creation In RMS (Doc ID 2782257.1)

Last updated on JUNE 12, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Retail Merchandising System - Version 16.0.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


There is an inconsistency with how deals get created whether it is from online or from the upload when using Bill Back Rebate Deals. This makes it difficult to consistently report on these types of Deals.

Current Design:
1. Online in RMS, user can create a BBR deal, but they cannot create a BB deal with Rebate Ind = 'Y'.
2. In the RMS Deal upload, it is the opposite. User cannot create a BBR deal, but they can create a BB deal with a Rebate Ind = 'Y'.

Explanation and proposed Fix:
When a deal is created in UI, there is no additional place to check Rebate Indicator. When type is selected as BBR then the Rebate Indicator is set as Y in the backend tables. The documentation (Doc ID 1561669.1) seems to be right that a BB deal with Rebate Indictor as Y is same as BBR.

However, Oracle will fix Deal Upload file and batch to let user select deal type as BBR.
