Symptoms

-- Problem Statement:

When Order Releases or updates are sent to OTM from EBS, they are being provided with the Date Emphasis of BOTH

<TimeWindowEmphasisGid>
<Gid>
<Xid>BOTH</Xid>
</Gid>
</TimeWindowEmphasisGid>

This might cause problems in the event that the requirement is to have the Date Emphasis as something else due to incompatible Order Time Windows. When an order is updated to have a Date Emphasis of BOTH, and therefore, an attempt to update the shipment is done where other orders are on this shipment with incompatible time windows, the following error might occur:

Exception Error creating Stop Order Bundle for Shipment Stop DOMAIN.SHIPMENT 1. More than one Stop Order Bundle created.

-- Steps To Reproduce:

1. In OTM have a shipment with multiple orders. These orders can have incompatible Pickup or Delivery Windows. This was permitted as the Orders have a Data Emphasis of NONE.

2. Via integration from EBS, send an Order Release update. This will cause the OMD agent within OTM to update the shipment. Since the update of the release also sets the order's Date Emphasis to BOTH, the order incompatibility is detected and the shipment can not be successfully updated.
