2568622 - Error "Logistics Area ID in Sequence Item ABC\DESTINATION_XYZ\1 Not Defined or Not Valid"


When trying to migrate Location and Logistics Area, you get one of the errors below in Simulate Import step.

 "Logistics area ID in sequence item ABC\SOURCE_XYZ\1 not defined or not valid"

 "Logistics area ID in sequence item ABC\DESTINATION_XYZ\1 not defined or not valid"

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Business Configuration workcenter;
  2. Search for Migration of Location and Logistics Area;
  3. Open the activity;
  4. Click Migrate Location and Logistics Area using the migration tool;
  5. Select the migration template;
  6. Click Execute Migration and choose Step by Step;
  7. Receive the error in Simulate step.


This is the expected behaviour. When creating a Material Flow of Basic Rule type for Location, it is required to choose a Logistic Area. It is the same behavior when creating it in UI.


In "Location - Material Flow" tab of your template, for records filled with 1 for Basic Rule in "Basic or Advanced" column (2), it is required to maintain the "Logistic Area ID", which is a hidden column (7).
