    IMT is enabled even though "Transfer order required" flag is unchecked in Inter-org Parameters

    Hi,

    This post is created with reference to the post of

    "Internal Requisition created even though Inter Org Parameters does not setup for IMT" 

    from Self Service Procurement module.

    Business Case :

    Client is in health-care having multiple Hospitals and one Central Warehouse (CWH)

    Below are the Processes followed:

    1. hospital will request stock from CWH internally by IMT process.

    2. CWH will procure stock from Supplier always.

    3. Hospital can also send some stock back to CWH by Inter Org Transfer Transaction.

    For this we have done setup of Inter Org Parameters as below :

    1. Source Org : CWH ----> Destination Org : Hospital

        Flag : Transfer order required : Enabled

    2. Source Org: Hospital ----> Destination Org : CWH

        Flag : Transfer order required : Disabled

     

     

    System Behavior:

    1. User in creating Requisition from Hospital by adding item to dd to cart, it creates IR from CWH which is expected behavior.

    2. If User Creates Requisition from CWH which must be Purchase Requisition , but it created IR from Hospital which is incorrect and looks like Product Bug.

    Attached Screen shot for the reference.

    Note : Kindly refer the Post from SSP as mentioned above for more details

    In that Post I got the response as below

    "

    Transfer Order setting of Enabled or Disabled does not indicate whether an internal transfer is allowed or not. It is indicative of whether a formal transfer order document is produced or not. In other words transfer can occur between two orgs even without transfer order being mandatory.  In our Self Service Procurement integration, we always create a transfer order for use cases. The flag, as we clarified with the Logistics (SCM) team, is used as follows:

    ====================================================================================================================================

    This flag is only indicating if simple inventory Inter org transfer is allowed. If it is checked, they can only use transfer order to do the org transfer. Otherwise they can use both ways - transfer order or simple Inter org transfer

    ====================================================================================================================================

    Kindly suggest what is the way to make IMT process mandatory in one way (like from CWH to Hospital) but not other way (like from Hospital to CWH).

    Attaching the scree shots of the issue.

      The one thing I can think of would be to remove the simple inter-org task via security from the people you don't want doing that task.

      Hi Lynn,

      Thanks for the reply. 
      But here issue is not related to security.

      The exact issue is why system creates IR when my Interorg parameter is setup between two inv orgs with Transfer Order Required Flag disabled.

      How system should enforce that between two orgs IMT is enabled and other two orgs only inter org is enabled.

      Hope the issue is clear.

      Thanks,

        Yes, what I suggested was a potential workaround for the behavior you want.  The system works this way - This flag is only indicating if simple inventory Inter org transfer is allowed. If it is checked, they can only use transfer order to do the org transfer. Otherwise they can use both ways - transfer order or simple Inter org transfer.  

        You can log an Idea in Idea lab for the exact behavior you need.
