Oracle Install Base Is Timing Out On Search Instance By Serial Number

(Doc ID 1454394.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 06, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Installed Base - Version to 12.1.3 [Release 11.5 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
***Checked for Relevance 27-Jan-2015***


Actual Behavior
When searching for an Item Instance with an alphanumeric Serial Number eg., AAA1234, the search runs for a long time then times out.  However, if the query is done by Instance Number for the same Serial Number, OR if the query is done by a numeric Serial Number eg., 112233, the search returns results quickly.

Expected Behavior
Should be able to query by an alphanumeric Serial Number without timing out

Steps to Reproduce
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Navigation:  Oracle Installed Base User (R12 - Orale Installed Base Agent User) >> Item Instance >> Item Instances

2. Enter an alphanumeric Serial Number in the 'Serial Number' field on the Instance Search Page

3. Observe that the search goes on for a long time and eventually times out
