Fusion PIM: Item Class Is Mandatory In ADFDI Spreadsheet Since Release 8 Update 7 (Doc ID 1915076.1)

Last updated on MARCH 11, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Fusion Product Hub - Version 11.1.8.0.0 and later
Oracle Fusion Product Hub Cloud Service - Version 11.1.8.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 11.1.8.0.0 version, Consolidate Product/Service Master Data-Manage Import Batches

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
In Update 7 for R8. On ADFDi Data Import for both Add and Update actions the Item lass is now mandatory giving 'The value of the Attribute Item Class is not valid.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
For an Add action the Item Class may not be known, for an update it should not be mandatory

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create spreadsheet for import via ADFDi which does not include Item Class definition.
2. 1 line for new Item, 1 line for update existing.
3. On ADFDi import action it will be prevented from updating the line from batch with 'The value of the Attribute Item Class is not valid.

The system should only give this error message when you fill in an item class that is invalid, but it should not give an error when you do not fill in an item class. Especially, when you update existing items, you do not want to fill in the item class of the item (you may not even know it).
