Transactions Resources, Resources, and More Resources

Do you import transactions into EBS Inventory using the Transactions Open Interface functionality? Inventory Support offers many resources to assist in resolving any issues that may occur. One resource the Inventory Social Media team recommends is the diagnostic in note, R12.0.6+ : Inventory Open Interface Transactions Transaction Data Test (Doc ID 732248.1). Want to see all R12 EBS diagnostics? Check out Doc ID 1083807.1. Still on 11i? Check out all the EBS diagnostics in Doc ID 179661.1.

Want more assistance than just a diagnostic? The Inventory Social Media Team is especially excited about the Analyzers being created across Oracle Support and EBS Products that offer warnings, recommendations, and solutions for your data and/or Product set-up. Check out note, Get Proactive with Oracle E-Business Suite - Product Support Analyzer Index (Doc ID 1545562.1).



Existing Analyzers are currently being reformatted into our new and improved standards, so keep a look out for formatting improvements to existing Analyzers, and new Analyzer offerings. By the way, the Inventory Social Media team is particularly proud of the Inventory Analyzer (Doc ID 1499475.1) which has been previously discussed in this blog. So, be sure to use the many Support resources, and let's get those interface transactions processed!

Data Solutions For Your Inventory Items

Does it seem that you sometimes experience what appears to be the same data issues when adding or updating Inventory Items? It's not happenstance. Oracle Product Information Management (PIM) Development and Support have identified certain data corruption scenario's that might be common to certain Inventory Item data. Development and Support have worked together to create, test, and approve Standard Datafixes (SDF's) that can be safely used by PIM and/or Inventory Items Customers, without logging a Service Request. Be sure to bookmark note, FAQ: Item And PIM (APC/PLM) Standard Datafixes (Doc ID 1295001.1).



The note references 7 data issues, identifies if error identification scripts are available for each, let's you know if each issue has a standard datafix and/or a root cause patch, and shows the Product versions covered. You can have confidence using the SDF's because they were thoroughly tested and have Oracle PIM Developments stamp-of-approval. Use the fixes in Doc ID 1295001.1 to limit down time, and let's get those Inventory Items ready for processing.
