    Supplier Registration URL Error After 18C Upgrade
    After upgrade to Rel 13 18C (, Suppliers can't register using Spend Authorization URL

    Hi All,

    After upgrade to Rel 13 18C (, when Suppliers open the Spend Authorization Register URL
    to register, they receive an error - 'Mac check in GCM failed'. Due to this issue, Suppliers cannot register themselves.


    Cause - 

    The URL was updated to enhance security for the spend authorization registration URL in the application.

    Registration URL for Prospective relationship was not changed.


    Solution - 

    Use new URL from Configure Procurement Business Function.

    1. Navigator: Setup and Maintenance

    2. Search and select Task : Configure Procurement Business Function

    3. Select the Procurement BU

    4. Copy the updated URL for Spend Authorization Registration.


    This issue was not mentioned on the Oracle Release notes - .

      Hi Sathya,

      Thanks for sharing the detailed explanation on this issue. We acknowledge that we have enhanced security around registration URL and this applies to

      1. Spend Authorization URL,

      2, Requests saved for later, and

      3. Requests sent back for resubmission.

      We will soon come up with a support note detailing the enhancement and the impacts.
