    Title:
    Oracle Self Service Procurement Cloud: How to set a default value in Attachment Categories
    Summary:
    How to set a default value in Attachment Categories
    Content:

    Problem:

    Customers have asked us if the Attachment Categories that are provided out of the box can be configured to take a different default value than the out of the box default value

    Resolution:

    The answer is Yes. The out of the box behavior of attachment categories is to be sorted alphabetically based on the value provided for User Name in the setup page Manage Attachment Categories.

    You can change the value provided for User Name to influence the sort order of the Attachment Categories and thereby the default value.

    For example, the out of the box default attachment category on a requisition line is 'Internal to Requisition'.  Some customers wanted to change this value to 'To Approver'. The workaround is to change the User Name (see screenshot attached) perhaps using a number prefix such as 1 - To Approver so that this displays as the default value.

    Point to Note: Please do note that if you do change the User Name and hence the sort order, this will impact all documents and flows that use the specific attachment category. Therefore any such change has to be carefully thought through based on whether the desired sort order and default value makes sense across different flows.
