On : 12.1.3 version, Warehouse Shipping

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
WMS Put Away to Staging

We have built a custom function for the staging lane locator to be used. Since RPC5, we found when we release multiple orders at the same time (or allocate multiple orders in the Transact Move Order screen), the staging locator is the same for all orders. However, when only 1 order is allocated, or the rule is simulated, the correct staging lane is returned.

Prior to RPC5 this was not an issue - staging lane allocated correctly every time.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
As this organization only do internal order shipments, the staging locator is aligned to the organization the stock is sent to. As per current RUP11 environment this works correctly. The function retrieve the organization code from the ship to location.
On the orders in the trace:
For order 107505 1868550 the locator should be SL245 (has returned SL401)
For order 107389 1859761 the locator should be SL244 (has returned SL401)
For order 107464 1861084 and 106928 1851466 the locator should be SL401 which it is in the trace. Howverr, depending on the sequence orders are selected this can be incorrect as well.

STEPS TO REPRODUCE
----------------------
1. Create internal requisitions - each internal requisition to different ship to location
2. Run Create Internal Orders and Import Orders
3. Release the internal orders - specify warehouse, order type, but do not select specific orders, ensure Allocate tasks are set to Yes

It also can be done where:
1. Delete existing allocations to the move orders on the Transact Move Order screen for a few orders with different ship to locations
2. Do not back order. Select these move orders and select the button Allocate.

BUSINESS IMPACT
----------------------
Staging lanes are dedicated to specific organizations asssociated with distribution centres. Stock is checked in the staging lanes prior to loading the truck. As a result of incorrect drop (as the locator is incorrect) the delivery must be un-assigned, then back ordered and re-allocated. Also stock can be sent to an incorrect Distribution Centre as the drop was incorrect as per suggested locator. Cannot expect staff to query each pick task to determine where they should drop the goods.
