"An assignment does not exist for these parameters and one is mandatory" Error Message When Creating A Clause. (Doc ID 558683.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 03, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Contracts - Version 12.1.3 and later
Oracle Procurement Contracts - Version 12.1.3 to 12.1.3 [Release 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When attempting to create a Clause, the following error occurs:

An assignment does not exist for these parameters and one is mandatory.

Cause: The profile option Sequential Numbering is defined to have sequential numbering always used. The current set of parameters does not have a sequence assigned.

Action: Go to the Assign Sequences screen and assign a sequence to the current set of parameters.

Clause creation is expected without error because the system has been setup.

Steps To Reproduce:
Using the System Administrator responsibility:

1. Navigate to Application > Document > Define. Create an entry with these values:

    Name = OKC_Contracts
    Application = Contracts Core
    Type = Automatic

2. Navigate to Application > Document > Categories. Create an entry with these values:

    Application = Contracts Core
    Code = OKC_Contracts
    Name = OKC_Contracts
    Description = OKC_Contracts
    Table Name = OKC_ARTICLES_ALL

3. Navigate to Application > Document > Assign. Create an entry with these values:

    Document tab:
       Application = Contracts Core
       Category = OKC_Contracts
       Name = OKC_Contracts
       Set of Books = Desired Set of Books
       Method = Automatic
    Assignment tab:
       Enter Start Date
       Sequence = OKC_Contracts

    Note: The start date for this entry cannot be earlier than the start date for the document sequence. If so, the sequence will not appear in the list of values.

4. Navigate to Profile System.

    Search for the profile OKC:Clause Sequence Category.
    Select the value OKC_Contracts at the site level and save the entry.
