    Title:
    Triggering NIR on Draft item in automated manner
    Summary:
    How to update Draft item with or without triggering NIR creation/submission
    Content:

    Hello everybody,

    Looking for an explanation / insight on logic concerning automatic NIR creation for items with approval status 'Draft':

    • When using UI, any update on item does not seem to auto-trigger an NIR. End user has to specifically 'Submit' the 'Draft' item to launch an NIR => that's OK
    • When using webservice we have not found a way to trigger NIR creation on an already existing item with approval status 'Draft' => Is there any way to trigger NIR creation (and submission) on an already existing item with approval status 'Draft' using webservices?
    • When using FBDI we have noticed that the import job automatically creates (and submits) NIR upon any update on an already existing item with approval status 'Draft' => Is there any way NOT to trigger NIR creation upon FBDI based update on an already existing item with approval status 'Draft'

    Would appreciate any help / feedback / experience / insight / shed light upon the logic concerning auto NIR creation on already existing items with approval status 'Draft'. Alternatively put we are looking for an automated manner (bulk mangement) to handle both cases, being (1) trigger NIR on already existing items with approval status 'Draft' as well (2) update already existing items with approval status 'Draft' without triggering an NIR.

      We are working on a REST webservice to allow the submission of an NIR from open and then onto other states. The feature will be available in the 19D timeframe.

      Please get in touch with me if you need further information.

       

      Thanks

        Hi Charu,

        Thanks for feedback, we welcome the enhancement... However, we are looking for logic to create & submit an NIR, not only to progress an already existing NIR. It appears that current logic is different based on channel used (UE, FBDI, webservice, ...) and would like to know more details about current functionality (if we can achieve updates with and without NIR creation/submission). Any thoughts on that?

         

        Cheers,

        Wim

      Received feedback from our CSM that (Create/Get/Update) New Item Request REST APIs are available as of 19B: https://docs.oracle.com/en/cloud/saas/supply-chain-management/19b/fasrp/op-fscmrestapi-resources-11.13.18.05-newitemrequests-post.html

      Use case "Assuming the draft items already exist, the REST API can be called to add these draft items as affected items on the NIR" is expected to be supported.
