During Directed putaway pallet , system is not suggesting Non-Empty Location . System is being directed to a Location which already has inventory

Expect the location suggested during Putaway is an Empty Location as per Rules Setup.

In the images below and/or the attached document, user details / company name / address / email / telephone number represent a fictitious sample (based upon made up data used in the Oracle Demo Vision instance). Any similarity to actual persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental and not intended in any manner.

Steps to replicate:

- Set up putaway rule so OUTDR putaway type goes to RSV location size type with Putaway Search Mode of "Empty Location"
- Assign putaway type OUTDR to LPN 001

1. Created IB Shipment ASNWM100105 with two items  Items A and Item B .. Set Putaway type = OUTDR
2. Received the shipment into Pallet PLT00001 ., IBLPNs - IBLPN00008  and IBLPN000010
3. Created IB Shipment ASNWM100106 with two items  Items A and Item B .. Set Putaway type = OUTDR
4. Received the shipment into Pallet PLT00002 ., IBLPNs - IBLPN00011 and IBLPN00012
5. Setup putaway priority with putaway search mode = Empty Locations for Putaway type = OUTDR
6. Setup up two new locations RSV118 and RSV119
7.  Perform Directed Putaway Pallet of LPN PLT00001 . It suggested Loc = RSV118
8.  Perform Directed Putaway Pallet of LPN PLT00002 . It suggested Loc = RSV118 instead of RSV119
