Error description

  • The idresgen utility may not output some records to the output
    file if:
    - A record in the input file resolves to a Primary Key that
    already exists in the database table
    - Non-Primary Key values in the input file are different from
    the values stored in the database table
    
    The utility may also overlook some Foreign Key relationships
    defined in the REFKEYS table if any of the following are true:
    - A child table links to a parent table through more than one
    column
    - A child table has more than one relationship
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • USERS AFFECTED:
    WebSphere Commerce users on v7.0 who are attempting to resolve
    identifiers which may already have existing Primary Keys in the
    database
    
    PROBLEM ABSTRACT:
    The idresgen utility does not output records with existing
    Primary Keys or fails to consider some Foreign Keys
    
    BUSINESS IMPACT:
    Not all data may be updated as expected
    
    RECOMMENDATION:
    

Problem conclusion

  • Changed comparison to consider entire record values to determine
     whether resolved record with existing Primary Key is a
    duplicate.   Also corrected oversight of multiple or
    multi-column Foreign Key constraints defined in the REFKEYS
    table
