BOM_BO_PUB.PROCESS_BOM API Does not Set Locators on Components (Doc ID 2078778.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 17, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle Bills of Material - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The Bills of Material form (BOMFDBOM) allows to set locators on components even if those components are not Locator controlled. At the same time, the API (Application Programming Interface) BOM_BO_PUB.PROCESS_BOM does not allow such behaviour, so there is a different behavior between the form and the API. The following error messages occur with BOM Attribute update:

ERROR
-----------------------
"An error occured while processing business object ... in organization .... Please check the data in this business object and re-run the import process."
and
"You cannot enter a location name for component ... because this item has no locator control."
