Symptoms

When performing the following:

Shipment Management > Shipment Management > Buy Shipments or Sell Shipments. On the Equipment tab, click the "n" button by the Shipment Equipment field to create a new Shipment Equipment.

After entering the values in the form and saving the details, without a Shipment Equipment ID, get a message that Shipment Equipment ID is required.

As per the Help text for the screen, the following is mentioned there:

"During shipment planning, a Shipment Equipment ID is automatically assigned to the shipment and linked to the assigned Equipment Group. If you are adding a new Shipment Equipment, enter an Shipment Equipment ID to assign a value that identifies the equipment. If you leave this field blank, Oracle Transportation Management enters a value for you after you save the page."
