Spares Management: Debrief Fails With Invalid Quantity Specified. Negative Quantities Are Not Allowed For This Item (Doc ID 1985745.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 19, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Spares Management - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When reassigning a task that is linked to a parts requirement (ship to address type = Task) with an order that cannot be canceled, using direct shipping between organizations AND the new engineer is in the same default inventory organization as the original assignee, then the order is shipped to the wrong subinventory. It gets shipped to the original assignee subinventory and not the new engineer subinventory.

As a result, when material debrief lines are created from requirement lines automatically, when the debrief is processed some lines throw error:
Invalid quantity specified. Negative quantities are not allowed for this Item. Please check the Item Definition. (QUANTITY=-1)

That is because in this scenario, the order is not canceled (as per Note 1582488.1 - Spares Management: Effect of Task Reassignment When a Parts Requirement Exists); The underlying requisition (which says what the destination subinventory is) is not canceled either. So when the order is shipped, the 'direct shipment' automatically marks it as received and uses the requisition subinventory as the destination. The reservation is also created against this subinventory.

It would be expected in this scenario that the shipment is done to the (new) destination subinventory of the parts requirement and the reservation is created against that as well.
