    Oracle Self Service Procurement Cloud: Tip on BPA Usage on FBDI for Requisitions Import
    How to import Requisitions associated to a BPA using the FBDI Process

    Hello Everyone:

    I picked this tip/How-to because I recently discovered that many customers still raise questions around this topic. As innocuous as this tip may be, I thought posting this will draw attention to the simpler process related questions that sometimes do crop up with customers.

    Customer Question:

    I have a line associated to a BPA. I am using FBDI to import these requisition lines. However, I keep getting an error when trying to import. What is happening?


    Does the template have an item reference for the Requisition line in question?

    Customer Response:



    Please note that in order to import a requisition line that is associated to a BPA:

    a) You will need to match that BPA to a master item or a supplier item

    b) Typically, customers tend to use master items in these scenarios

    Importing requisition lines associated to a BPA without any backing master item or supplier item is not supported.
