APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The parameter WaitingPeriodForUniqueCodeRelease in the Promotion
    configuration file
    xml\config\com.ibm.commerce.promotion-fep\wc-admin-component.xml
    controls the number of minutes until a unique promotion code
    applied by a guest shopper from an abandoned order is released
    and can be applied by another customer. This flag is not being
    respected in the promotion runtime for all cases. As a result
    the promotion code is not being released and can not be
    re-applied.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • USERS AFFECTED:
    WebSphere Commerce users on V7.0 who use unique promotion codes.
    
    PROBLEM ABSTRACT:
    The WaitingPeriodForUniqueCodeRelease configuration parameter
    for the Promotions engine may not work correctly in all cases.
    
    BUSINESS IMPACT:
    Unique promotion code is not released if order is abandoned and
    so the code can not be reapplied.
    
    RECOMMENDATION:
    

Problem conclusion

  • A check was added for state 4 (applied to order) in the validate
    promotion code method so that it will return true and the 'if'
    statement will continue to execute the second condition of
    checking whether the code can be released to the current order.
    This allows for a promotion code to be released and re-applied.
