    To address the above CRs related to Traffic and Site modules integration, the new column rel_to_tship_ind is added to m_release_notes table. This column can hold the values Y and N. Y indicates that packing list will go through the shipment phase in Traffic module. N indicates that an MRR can be created for a packing list/item shipment/package without going through the shipment phase of Traffic.

    To adhere to the above changes, a migration script is placed which will update the rel_to_tship_ind column based on the current status of the items. The new table M_RELN_MIG_CR56113 is created to give information regarding the packing lists for which rel_to_tship_ind couldn't be decided. In such cases, rel_to_tship_ind is set to N.

    This may happen in the below cases:

    • if a packing list or any of its packages is both in shipment and also an MRR is created, then migration state is updated to 'MRR_Y | TSHIP_N ==> N'.

    • if any packing list is not migrated due to any unforeseen scenarios, then migration state is updated to 'NOT MIGRATED RELN'.

  • This patch includes enhancements done in areas like telemetry, EML summary phases, shipments, and shipping invoices.

    Renamed a prompt for better understanding. (CR-MA60400)

  • Added a new column to m_packages table which holds the arrival date of a package at final destination. (CR-MA65640)
