Error description

  • When trying to import a code list customer gets the following
    error:
    The object [SenderItem: OCEAN_40 ReceiverItem: 38
    Description: OCEAN_40 Text1: Text2: Text3: Text4: ]
    will be
    overwritten by the object [SenderItem: OCEAN_403 ReceiverItem:
    8 Description: OCEAN_403 Text1: Text2:Text3: Text4: ]
    
    Note
    that both codes entries are unique and therefore should not be
    overwritten.
    
    The issue can also be seen if using the dashboard
    UI to create a new code list, enter one of the codes
    combination, OCEAN_40 and 38,
    which works fine but when trying
    to enter the second one, OCEAN_403 and 8, we get the
    error:
    "One of the new code already exists in the list. Please
    try again with a unique Sender Code and a unique Receiver
    Code."
    Strange thing is that if I enter the sender/receiver
    code combination OCEAN_406/8 instead of OCEAN_403/8, it works
    fine and the same happens for
    combination OCEAN_403/9, it also
    works fine, it seems to be only the specific combination
    OCEAN_403/8 that causes the issue
    
    The issue doesn't seem to be
    database related since I could reproduce it on MSSQL, DB2 and
    Oracle database systems.
    Also could reproduce the issue on
    5.2.6.x, 6.0.2.2 and 6.0.3.2 and customer has the issue on
    6.0.1.0
    

Local fix

  • STRRTC- B2BISFG-56435
    OAQ / OAQ
    Circumvention: a key will be
    used in form of SenderItem+ReceiverItem, the concatenation of
    both strings has to be unique.

Problem conclusion

  •  Resolution Summary:
    
    
    
    A code fix is provided
    
    A hash map key is created in the form of SenderItem+ReceiverItem
    before inserting the code list entry to the database. To
    guarantee the uniqueness of the key, the form should be
    SenderItem+"_"+ReceiverItem
