Goal

Assuming Retail Merchandising System(RMS)/Retail Price Management(RPM) is configured to make use of the Retail Integration Bus(RIB) for communcation
(SYSTEM_OPTIONS.rpm_rib_ind = 'Y'). When a new item/location is added to RMS, it does not
flow to RPM (i.e. intial seed record never gets populated into RPM_FUTURE_RETAIL).

1) New item/location is added and approved in RMS.
2) Record gets inserted into ITEMLOC_MFQUEUE.
3) RIB picks up item from ITEMLOC_MFQUEUE, sends it to the RIB and removes from ITEMLOC_MFQUEUE.
4) Record gets picked up by RPM/RIB code and gets inserted into RPM_STAGE_ITEM_LOC.
5) Record remains in RPM_STAGE_ITEM_LOC and never gets inserted into RPM_FUTURE_RETAIL.

If one is configured to use the RIB for RMS-to-RPM communcation is there a need to run the NewItemLocBatch batch process and customer have the triggers on ITEM_LOC that insert into RPM_STAGE_ITEM_LOC disabled. Thus, the RPM code picks the new item/locations up from the RIB and puts into RPM_STAGE_ITEM_LOC, but never puts the records into RPM_FUTURE RETAIL.

Currently , one has to manually push the items into RPM_FUTURE_RETAIL, which is not the preferred
approach.
