"ORA-02291: integrity constraint" When Clearing a Custom Picklist Field (Doc ID 1351168.1)

Last updated on JULY 20, 2024

Applies to:

Oracle Transportation Management - Version 6.1.0 to 6.2.2 [Release 6.1 to 6.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


A custom Manager Layout is created where a field is updated to define a picklist of options.

This Manager Layout is used and a specific data is assigned to this configured field based on one of the pre-defined items from the picklist. When the object is updated again and this field is updated to select the "Null" option, the following error is observed:

Cannot update the <OBJECT> record. <Field Name> must reference a valid <Field Name> record.
java.sql.BatchUpdateException: ORA-02291: integrity constraint (GLOGOWNER.FK_) violated - parent key not found

This is because the SQL is trying to update the field with a value that does not use the domain. Howeverver, it shouldn't even be using that data at all. It should be updating to NULL as they selected the "empty" selection.
