      Hi

      Could you clarify what "requester-negotiated requisition lines" does this mean they need to have had a RFQ for the requisition line?  Or should it be any line on a requisiton in essence taking the buying team out of the loop.

       

      Reason I ask is I have set this this as per the release readiness document but am unsure if this should work for all requisition lines, we use non catalog requests exclusively and nothing is being created.

        Hi Dave,

        The requisition lines need to have the 'Negotiated' flag checked for the automation to take place. This is separate from the 'Negotiation Required' flag used in the sourcing flows.

        Hope this helps,
        Manjula

          It did, is worth noting and maybe needs adding to the documentation that this is a hidden field on the Non Catalog request screen so you have to customize the form for the users to access it.
