Closed as program error.
After applying APAR JR48519, editing and saving a promotion in list view without opening the promotion will remove all the associated promotion codes for that promotion. When trying to activate the promotion, the business user might encounter the following error message if the promotion uses public promotion codes: ERROR: Specify a promotion code in the Promotion codes table and then save the promotion.
The business user can open the promotion from the promotion list view, edit the promotion, and click save. The promotion can now be activated from within the editor view or the main list view.
USERS AFFECTED: WebSphere Commerce V7 FEP5 or later users who edit and save promotions with public codes from within the main list view in the Commerce Management Center Promotion Tool and have APAR JR48519 installed. PROBLEM ABSTRACT: Promotions modified in the Promotion Tool main list cannot be activated if they have public codes. BUSINESS IMPACT: Business users will not be able to activate promotions with public codes if the promotions were edited within the promotion list view. RECOMMENDATION:
The APAR JR48519 was introduced to eliminate the loading of public promotion codes when they are not needed, such as for the main promotion list view. However, in order to save modified promotions with public codes, the codes must first be retrieved. The logic was modified to first retrieve the public codes for those promotions that have been modified from within the main list view, prior to saving those promotions.
