2846678 - No Error is Thrown When Saving the Demand Plan With Incorrect UoM


You are using the product XXX as Input Product for a produced product. You created the Demand Plan YYY with the Multi Level Planning Enabled set and the Demand Plan UoM ZZZ. You do not have a quantity conversion maintained for product XXX with UoM ZZZ, so you expect an error message when saving the Demand Plan. However the Demand Plan was saved successfully.

XXX = Product ID

ZZZ = Unit of Measure

YYY = Demand Plan ID
