Factor List Sort Order is Jumbled Upon Saving (Doc ID 2208285.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 30, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Advanced Pricing - Version 12.2.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On :  12.2.4 version, Formula Screen and API

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR  
---------------
If the factor list pricing attributes are entered(factor formula lines),
after re-querying the list, finds that the order in which records were entered is changing.

As this particular screen does not have a grouping number or sequence number
there is no way to define a sequence in which the factor formula lines should execute
and as the execution depends upon the sequence in which it is defined
it is picking up the wrong adjustment factor.

The formula with this factor list is assigned as a dynamic formula on the price list line.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Expects to have a method in which to determine which factor list is used first.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Responsibility = Oracle Pricing Manager
2. Navigate to: Pricing Formulas > Formulas Setup
3. Query the formula
4. Review setup of factor lists used in formula.
    Formula Name = XX_SYSS_US_AUTOs
    Formula = 1*2
    Step 1, pricing attribute, pricing attribute, XX Master Price
    Step 2, factor list, US_AUTO_RESTR
  
    Open factor list
     Customer defined a factor line at the bottom and when re-queried it shifted to somewhere in the middle.
     Hence it is unclear about the order for which the records will be processed.

 

5. Responsibility: Order Management Super User (or equivalent)
6. Navigate to: Orders, Returns > Sales Orders

 

 

Changes

Customer defined a factor line at the bottom (one record with adjustment factor = .7) and when re-queried it shifted
to somewhere in the middle. Hence, visually it is unclear about the order for which the records will be processed.
