APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Using the Catalog Upload function for
    CatalogEntryCalculationCode type upload clears the
    CATENCALCD.CALFLAGS column of existing entries.
    

Local fix

  • To preserve CALFLAGS and have the Dataload utility or Catalog
    Upload function to leave it alone, the columns can be excluded
    from update by adding the following lines to
    wc-loader-catalog-entry-calculation-code.xml:
    
       <_config:ColumnExclusionList>
         <_config:table name="CATENCALCD" columns="CALFLAGS" />
       </_config:ColumnExclusionList>
    
     immediately after
     <_config:DataLoader
    className="com.ibm.commerce.foundation.dataload.BusinessObjectLo
    ader" >
    

Problem summary

  • USERS AFFECTED:
     Customers using Dataload or Catalog Upload to update the
    CATENCALCD table's CALFLAGS column
    
     PROBLEM ABSTRACT:
     When using Catalog Upload, the values in the
    CATENCALCD.CALFLAGS column may not be updated as expected.
    
     BUSINESS IMPACT:
     Entries may need to be manually or updated using Accelerator.
    
     RECOMMENDATION:
    

Problem conclusion

  • The following changes were made to address this issue:
     - add CalFlags xpath to loader file, so it is able to load that
    column directly through the csv
     - make PartNumber optional in csv; it is deemed "All" products
    when omitted so it is able to explicitly load or delete the
    "All" products row
     - automatically delete CATENCALCD row for "All" products when
    loading specific part numbers
     - automatically delete CATENCALCD row for specific part numbers
    when loading "All" products
