Purging History for Net Change and Complete Refresh Collections
By JeffG-Oracle on Aug 14, 2012
Data Load Real Time Customer Question:
When we run Shipment and Booking History Download, the date range of the data profile Purge History Data is updated at run time with
the date range chosen while running the concurrent program, Shipment and Booking History Download.
We noticed that everytime we run netchange collections, the date parameters on the Purge HIstory Integration Interface are set based on
the dates chosen in the Concurrent program Shipment and Booking History Download.
But, when we run the concurrent program in Complete refresh mode, the dates on the Purge History Integration Interface are set with dates
which fall outside the history and hence no history is purged. Is this intended design that History will not be purged during Demantra Complete
Refresh collections, and only during Net Change collections?
To answer your question, history should be purged for both net-change and refresh collections. If this is not working please contact Oracle
Note, the complete refresh collection is not meant for regular weekly runs. Ideally it should be run only once (boot strap) and that too
only if you want to collect all the data from Order Management (OM) into Demantra.
You should run only net-change collection for regular runs. Also for bootstrap data load, if OM has more data than required for Demantra,
net-change collection with appropriate date range should be run.
