A fix is available
Closed as program error.
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.
Customer can increase the size of the column as a temporary fix
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:
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. ------------------------------------------------------------- The latest available maintenance information can be obtained from the Recommended Fixes for WebSphere Commerce technote: http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=3046&uid=swg21261296
