  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • During promotion creation in the CMC UI, when a category from
    the sales catalog is targeted in the category exclusion list,
    after promotion refresh, the editor shows a master catalog
    category instead of the sales catalog category.
    
    The promotion is stored correctly in the database; only the
    promotion editor view is affected.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • USERS AFFECTED:
    All users who use sales catalog categories in a category
    exclusion list and refresh the promotion.
    
    PROBLEM ABSTRACT:
    When sales catalog categories are specified in the category
    exclusion list during promotion creation in the CMC UI, after
    promotion refresh, the editor shows the sales catalog category
    was replaced with a master catalog category.
    
    
    BUSINESS IMPACT:
    This issue confuses business users when they create promotions
    which target a sales catalog category since on refresh they
    appear to be excluding a master catalog category.
    
    RECOMMENDATION:
    

Problem conclusion

  • The GetCategoriesById.jsp which returns the client side category
    object was using a wrong condition to identify the catalog type
    of the category.  As a result the jsp was updated to invoke the
    correct function to  return the correct category catalog type.
