Overview of Message Categories

After processing demand requirements from trading partners, you must review the Release Management Exception Messages for that demand. Message Categories are used to organize the Exception Messages.

Six Message Categories are predefined, and you can create new Message Categories and assign them to exception messages to fit your needs. The Release Management Exception Report can be run for a specific Message Category or a range of Message Categories.

This section explains how to setup Message Categories codes in Release Management.


To set up Message Categories codes, you must first define the message category. To do this, use the Application Object Library Lookups window in the Application Developer Responsibility and set up a new code and message for Lookup Type RLM_MESSAGE_CATEGORY. You may define as many Message Categories as needed.
