Fusion PIM: Enhancement Request - Handle Updates to Items Which are in NIR Approval Status Without Error (Doc ID 2016858.1)

Last updated on MARCH 11, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Fusion Product and Catalog Management - Version 11.1.9.2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Current release generates an error when you import changes to an item that is in the NIR approval stage.
We want to change this a wait status. Once the NIR is approved, these pending changes should be submitted automatically. Another option would be to allow changes to the items until the first approved has opened / approved the notification.
At this moment we have implemented a workaround: we are always using the NIR definition steps because updates are allowed during the NIR definition.

But client wants to skip the definition step.

When we do this, imported items will automatically go to the approval step. It may takes some time before the data steward has reviewed and approved the NIR's (depending on the workload for the data steward). When the supplier sends an update in the meantime (and this will definitely happen), the import will not process that update and generate an error. After approval of the NIR, the data steward has to review the import batches that run into that specific error and found a way to re-import the items. This is quite a cumbersome process and there is risk that supplier changes are ignored.
