    Purpose of Requester field on invoice lines
    Summary:
    Purpose of Requester field on invoice lines
    Content:

    Hello, 

    What is the purpose of Requester field on invoice lines? When we match the invoice with the PO, the requester on the PO lines does not populate here so I am trying to understand the purpose of this field. 

    We have a business requirement to populate the requester on PO line to requester at invoice lines, how can that be acheived?

    Thanks

      Hi Mohammad,
      This field is practical when you don't activate Procurement (or have your procurement in an external system) to send to the Requester the invoice for approval. When matching the PO, the requester of the PO is automatically retrieved as you mentioned. You can differentiate both in BPM thanks to the level (header or line). As far as I know, there is no automatic way to inherit on line level the Requester set at header level of the invoice.
      Thanks
