APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Unexpected result in CMC product management tooling when using
    Catalog Upload tool to update or change the linked sales
    categories (e.g. create, delete or update the catalog entry to
    catalog group relationship)
    

Local fix

  • If the business users need to update or delete the catalog entry
     to category relationship, they will need to specify the catalog
     of the original category instead of the linked category.
    

Problem summary

  • USERS AFFECTED:
    Business users who manages products.
    
    PROBLEM ABSTRACT:
    The Catalog Upload tool changes linked sales categories (e.g.
    create, delete or update the catalog entry to catalog group
    relationship).
    
    BUSINESS IMPACT:
    The catalog upload tool has inconsistent behavior with the CMC
    product management tooling.
    
    RECOMMENDATION:
    

Problem conclusion

  • When a business user makes use of Management Center to link a
    category, the linked sales category is considered to reference
    the original category.  Using Catalog Upload tool to make
    changes (e.g. create, delete or update the catalog entry to
    catalog group relationship) in that  particular linked sales
    category will not be allowed and the business user will now see
    an error message when this happens.
