    In Amplifon we have 2 crucial business req.s for 1PC stream project implementation: the client is requiring to hide the PO price on Global Orders, meaning when the PROC BU is different compared with the REQ BU, e.g. PROC BU Global Functions – Corporate BU, REQ BU Netherlands BU (REQ BU = countries where Amplifon is present worldwide), supplier X.

    I know buyers dont belong to Req BUs. They are assigned to function in Procurement BUs.
    I was just trying to underline that the buyers belonging to the Legal entity owner of the orgs where the materials going to be delivered should not see the PROC BU's BPA prices. PROC BU with the Legal entity that is actually buying staff.

    We found and tested this Doc ID 2560166.1 , How to Hide PO Price (Field: 'Ordered') On Purchase Order Page but it is not enough for us as the same user/group of users of a specific country have to be able to create and see all details on orders opened just for their country BU. E.g. PROC and REQ BU = Netherlands BU, supplier Y.

    Looking fwd to your guidance.
    Thanks in adv. & Regards,
    Iulia

      Hi Iulia,

      I'm not sure if I'm reading this correctly, but if your requirement is that certain requisitioning BUs shouldn't be able to leverage pricing from BPAs, you can control this through the BPA controls (BU access).

      Perhaps you can describe in further detail what the process/issue is and how you're using the product as part of this (i.e. who is creating this documents and where? standalone POs vs online requisitions? etc...)

      Thanks,
      Manjula

        Hi Manjula,

        ​No, it's more complex. Please refer to the attached prt screens and interactions with the devlopment team:

        Q: What is the condition under which to hide the fields? Is it just on Proc BU?

        A: Want the condition if the Procurement BU != Requisition -> JUST if PROC BU is different than REQ BU, yes.
        and Buyer is 'X' ,'Y', 'Z'BU -> buyer belongs to REQ BU (and equivalent PROC BU), not PROC BU/Legal Entity paying the supplier

        Need to hide following
        PO Header: Ordered, Total &
        PO Lines: Price, Ordered - yes

        Q: What is the business use case that you are trying to satisfy? Why are they doing this?
        Even if you hide the values in the UI, they will be available in the PDF. -> The detailed business case is that for Global orders the Headquarter, so the PROC BU that will be ordering for the REQ BU does not want the REQ BU buyers to know the actual price paid to the supplier. They would like the REQ BU to know just the applied Transfer Price on the corresponding PROC SFO Flow.

        Thanks again and hope to talk soon,

      We want to understand the use case better. Here's my understanding so far - for PO's that are under Global Functions – Corporate BU, if the buyer is not also under that BU, then you want to hide the price. Is that correct? 

    • Iulia Rusu

      YES, the Global Functions – Corporate BU buyers should see the prices, the EMEA - France BU buyers should not see it. Please refer to the prt screens already provided.

      Thanks,

      Iulia

      • Manjula Evans

        Is there a reason why you can't use agent access to restrict the EMEA - France BU buyers from accessing POs raised in the Corporate BU procurement BU?

    • Iulia Rusu

      The POs are raised in the Corporate BU procurement BU for EMEA - France BU, please refer to the Purchasing - Shared Services Scenario B with SFO script​ for e.g., therefore EMEA - France BU buyers will see the PO prices.

      Also, EMEA - France BU buyers should be able to see their own PO prices when the order will be created in PROC EMEA - France BU for REQ EMEA - France BU. Is it clear now?

      Please advise and thanks,

      ​Iulia

      • Boyuan Zhu

        I think Manjula's question is why are you giving agent access to the Global Corporate procurement BU to EMEA - France BU buyers? 

    • Iulia Rusu

      I am NOT giving agent/buyer access to the Global Corporate PROC BU, but the order being raised by Global Corporate PROC BU for EMEA - France REQ BU it is available in EMEA - France as well. Please let me know if I am missing something here...

      • Boyuan Zhu

        In your screenshots what agent accesses does 1PC User1 have? Didn't you give the user access to the Global PRC BU? 

    • Iulia Rusu

      Hi Boyuan, yes, 1PC.user1 has access to Global PROC BU, yes. What I meant before was that I/we are not giving access to the French buyer to this PROC BU, just to the REQ and PROC BU EMEA - France, but there are hyperlinks towards the global order PO page, so even w/o accesses to the Global PROC BU, the country's buyer (e.g. France) can see the PO price from the global order.

    • Iulia Rusu

      Please refer to the prt screens in the attachment: 1PC Visibilità prezzo d'acquisto su Purchase Order_0312

    • Iulia Rusu

      In order for the business req. to be complete, we should be able to hide the price on the PO page, the Receipt one (see hyperlink with PO page), Monitor Financial Orchestration Execution page and Cost & Receipt Accounting UIs.

      ​Do you think Page Composer is the key to all these pages?

      Thanks loads,

      ​Iulia

      • Boyuan Zhu

        If you hide the hyperlink column, or disable the hyperlink on the pages external to Purchasing, then the user should have no way to access the PO.
