APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • A business user is unable to save a promotion which contains
    long public promotion codes or a large number of public
    promotion codes. These codes are saved to the PX_PROMOTION.CODE
    column with a delimiter separating each code. This column has a
    limit of 128 characters and is unable to hold the data when this
    limit is exceeded.
    

Local fix

  • Customer can increase the size of the column as a temporary fix
    

Problem summary

  • USERS AFFECTED:
    WebSphere commerce users on v7.0 who use Management Center to
    create promotions
    
    PROBLEM ABSTRACT:
    A business user is unable to save a promotion with a large
    number of public promotion codes because the combined length of
    promotion codes exceeds the 128 character limit of the
    PX_PROMOTION.CODE column.
    
    BUSINESS IMPACT:
    Unable to create a promotion with a large number of public
    promotion codes.
    
    RECOMMENDATION:
    

Problem conclusion

  • A flag called "PopulateCodeColumnOfPxPromotionTable" is provided
    in the promotion component configuration file
    (wc-admin-component.xml). This flag has a default value of
    "true" which keeps the default behavior of populating the
    PX_PROMOTION.CODE column with the public promotion codes in a
    promotion.
    Setting this flag to "false" will no longer write the public
    promotion codes to the PX_PROMOTION.CODE column, and any queries
    that rely on the data in this column will use the data from the
    PX_PROMOCD table instead which allows one code to be specified
    per database row.
