    Supplier Inquiry Job RoleAnswered

    Title:
    Supplier Inquiry Job Role
    Summary:
    Custom Supplier Inquiry Job role does not display any Suppliers
    Content:

    Custom Supplier Inquiry (Read Only) was established as a Procurement job role. This role was created using Supplier profile Inquiry and Supplier Work Area access overview.  No data security policies were assigned. The role was assigned to non-employee user and then to an employee user as well. In both cases, the user was unable to conduct any supplier inquiry.

    Would a data security policy be required? Does this custom role needs to be created under a different type of role?

    Thanks!

    Hi Arun,

    Can you share some screen shots to detail what exactly the user sees? Also, will be good (if possible) if you can share more information on the privileges the user has.

    Thanks,

      You need to define the employee as a procurement agent and select the check box against 'Manage Suppliers'.

      Hello Niamath,

      The employee is setup as an agent and manage suppliers is enabled as well. The search list does bring up the Suppliers based on keywords but it does not display.

      Thanks,

      Arun - My company is interested in this functionality as well. Thanks for posting the topic. We tried the same as mentioned above, but did not have a successful result.

        Hi Stacee,

        Is the understanding right that your requirement is exactly the same as that posted here? If so, resolving Arun's case will resolve your issue too, right?

        Thanks,
