APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • An e-Marketing Spot has a scheduled web activity displaying the
    top browsed products for a category.  Products have been browsed
    within the timeframe specified in the Top Browsed action. The
    e-Marketing Spot may not display any products or may display
    less products than expected.
    

Local fix

  • Increase the number of days parameter by 1 to compensate for the
     period not included in the ranking
    

Problem summary

  • USERS AFFECTED:
    WebSphere Commerce v7.0 who use e-Marketing Spots to display top
    browsed products
    
    PROBLEM ABSTRACT:
    An e-Marketing Spot displaying the top browsed products for a
    category shows less data than expected
    
    BUSINESS IMPACT:
    e-Marketing Spots for top browsed products could display an
    empty or inaccurate list
    
    RECOMMENDATION:
    

Problem conclusion

  • Some of the most recent product display events may be excluded
    when determining the Top Browsed list.  The WebSphere Commerce
    marketing code was updated to correctly use all the product
    display events based on the specified days parameter when
    calculating the products that should be included in a category's
     Top Browsed list.
