Last updated on MARCH 11, 2016

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

On : 11.1.9.2.0 version, Import Items

When attempting to use item import file upload of XML payload with date attribute missing
the following error occurs.

ERROR
-----------------------
Null pointer error


STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Setup an attribute group with 3 date attributes and 3 timestamp attributes.
2. Then use the file upload option from item import. It works fine when we fill in all attributes of the attribute group.
3. However if a value for one of the date attributes is not provided the upload gives a null pointer exception.
4. Note: It works fine when we do not provide a value for the timestamp attributes.
