Symptoms

After applying patch 5154680 a Sales User is unable to create an Opportunity. A 'required' DFF is being enforced.  The problem is it is being enforced when the Opportunity is being created and there is no access to the Additional Information Tab that contains the required DFF field.

It is expected that the User should be able to enter a new Opportunity when there is a Required DFF in the Additional Information

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

  1. Apply patch 5154680
  2. Create a 'Required' DFF (Sales Foundation: Opportunities)-> Save-> Compile
  3. Create an Opportunity in Oracle Sales
  4. Save
  5. Error: The following required field does not have a value: <your required DFF> 

Changes

Application of patch 5154680
