Configure a resource to be used as capacity area
Answer ID 11610   |   Last Review Date 06/24/2020

Where is the pcapacity_bucket field used to set a bucket as capacity area?

Environment:

Oracle Field Service (OFS)

Issue:

I used to configure buckets to be used as capacity area by checking the box 'Use as Capacity Area' (field: pcapacity_bucket) in Resource Info screen of Legacy Manage interface. I am not locating this field in Core Application interface. How can I set a resource as capacity area using the Core Application UI?

Resolution:

To mark a resource to be used as capacity area in Core Application interface go to Quota screen and click Configuration (wrench icon). You will see a plus sign by the Resource Tree search box.

Quota > Configuration. The '+' sign by the Resource Tree is highlighted.

Note: The plus sign will only display if you have Read-write permissions in the Quota Configuration tab in Configuration > User Types > Screen Configuration > Application screens > Quota screen context.

Configuration > User Types > Screen Configuration > Application screens > Quota screen context. Quota Configuration tab is highlighted. 'Read-write' is highlighted under Access Mode column.

Clicking the plus sign will display the Resource Tree, where you will be able to select the resource you will want to use as capacity area.

A warning will display if the resource cannot be used as capacity area.

Warning 'Resource cannot be defined as a Capacity Area' is displayed in the 'Add Capacity Area screen'

If you already have a resource that is configured to be used as capacity area and you would like to remove the configuration and not use the resource as capacity area, go to Quota screen, click the wrench icon and select the resource in the Resource Tree. Select 'Stop using as Capacity Area'. Click OK in the confirmation screen.

Quota > Configuration. FL,USA capacity area is selected in the Resource Tree. 'Stop using as a Capacity Area' option is highlighted.
