Duplicate User Defined Attribute (UDA) records were created in the EGO_MTL_SY_ITEMS_EXT_B table. There are multiple records that were created with the same INVENTORY_ ITEM_ ID, ORGANIZATION_ID and ATTRIBUTE_GROUP_ID. Attribute Values are distributed across these multiple records. These are NOT multi-row attribute groups, so we would expect only 1 attribute group defined per item.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load UDA records into EGO_ITM_USR_ATTR_INTRFC table
2. Submit the Item/Item Revision User Defined Attributes Import Program
3. Program is completed successfully and all the records were processed.
4. Query in the EGO_MTL_SY_ITEMS_EXT_B table
5. Multiple records got created with same Inventory item id, Organization id and Attribute Group id
6. Request Id for all the records are same.
