Category Restriction For Content Zone Ignored When Shopping In iProcurement - All Categories Shown (Doc ID 876537.1)

Last updated on JUNE 14, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle iProcurement - Version 12.0.4 to 12.2 [Release 12 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

iProcurement does not restrict the browsing categories to the content zone defined for the selected Store.

The categories displayed in the store should correspond to those categories specified for the Content Zone definitions associated to the store.  Instead, all the categories associated to the Content Zones for ALL stores are shown.  Users then navigate through the categories and find no items available, when the category should not even be shown.  The user must randomly navigate through all the categories and eventually find (or not find) a category that contains items relevant for the selected store.

Steps To Reproduce:

1. Log in to Oracle Applicaitons.
2. Select iProcurement responsibility.
3. On Shop page, choose Main Store and see all the categories, e.g.:
     Blood & Specimen Collection Medical Gloves
     Ergonomic Supplies Pens and Pencils
     First Aid/Medical Supplies Planners
     Imported Items Urology
     Industrial Supplies Wound Care Products
     Maintenance Supplies XML Imported
4. Choose Pens and Pencils / Ball Point Pens
- See item having Shopping Category = Ball Point Pens
5. Go back to Shop page.
6. Choose a Store that is limited to only one Category, e.g.: Miscellaneous.
- See all categories listed (same as in Step 3 above).
7. Choose Pens and Pencils / Ball Point Pens (not part of the Miscellaneous Category)
- See message:  

This category does not contain items.
