    Title:
    PO DFF API
    Summary:
    Is there an API available to update PO header/line/schedule level DFF's
    Content:

    Scenario: We're planning on building a PaaS solution to Auto Acknowledge PO's where the due date has been past. However, the client would like to record the method of acknowledgement on either PO header or schedule level DFF attribute for reporting and process improvement purposes.  Our technical team have understood that if the DFF's are updated, this would result in a change order - which is not desirable in this context.

    Is there an API/Service already available (that we missed) or one in the pipeline which would allow PO DFF's to be updated without it resulting in a change order.

      Hi Raghav, do you think that defining a change order auto approve rule with a condition of "source = PaaS " for example may address it ?

        Hi Caio,

        I don't believe this would meet the requirement - the client doesn't want a change order created when a DFF is updated for internal reporting purposes as this would potentially be communicated to the supplier and cause confusion.  Unless of course there is a way to configure the system which would suppress communication in certain circumstances (with minimal maintenance of course).

        Thanks,

      Have you considered using this service  for your requirement? In addition to the acknowledgment response it lets you also capture a note/comment which am thinking might suffice your reporting requirements.

        Hi Suman,

        Thank you for sharing the above, this could indeed resolve the requirement. I will discuss further with team and client.

        Thanks,
