When Trying to Enter Lot on Automatically Generated WIP Sample, Get Error, "Changes to this field may require a new Specification. Therefore the chosen Specification has been cleared" (Doc ID 2366518.1)

Last updated on MARCH 01, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Process Manufacturing Product Development - Version 12.2.5 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On : 12.2.5 version, Quality Management Samples

After creation of the pending lot, when the customer releases the Batch Step (note that 'Lot optional on Sample' checkbox is checked for the Specification Validity Rule ), the customer waits for the automatic execution of concurrent Workflow Background Process. After that, system creates a WIP Quality Sample without Lot Number.

Field "GMDQSMPL.WIP_LOT_NO" field is protected for automatically created samples, so using a personalisation, the customer has enabled the "GMDQSMPL.WIP_LOT_NO" field.  However, when trying to save the sample, the system is giving a message:

"Changes to this field may require a new Specification. Therefore the chosen Specification has been cleared ".

The customer needs to assign a Lot Number to all WIP Quality Samples without the error message forcing a change of  specification

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a batch.

2. Before completion of the batch step, create the pending lot.

3. Release the batch step.
4. Complete the step and wait until the Workflow Background Process concurrent execution finishes.

5. Go to the samples form and open the created quality Sample and try to change the Lot Number (which has been un-protected by a personalisation )

6. System shows error "Change to this field may require a new specification. Therefore the chosen Specification has been cleared"

The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, users cannot complete the sampling process without manual intervention with inputting the lot.
