    How to create a Transaction Source with the Document of ‘Commitment Source’.

    We have a requirement to create encumbrance for Payroll Costs and it needs to be a Commitment and not Actual. What is the best way to address this requirement.

    While trying to create a Transaction Source with the Document of ‘Commitment Source’ and Commitment Type ‘External’ (because it is not a Reqn/PO/Supplier Invoice), and while creating the Document Entry, every field is getting grayed out in the Document Entry and the Expenditure Type Class defaults to Supplier Invoices.

    Attaching a doc with screenshots.

    Any idea/suggestion is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

      Hi Paul,

      This doesn't exactly answer the question of why you can't edit it, but in this documentation it does confirm that it can't be edited.  It's a screenshot from the embedded help functionality within the application. It would be good to get some feedback from Oracle why this setup is locked.

      Our external commitment integration model currently only supports supplier related transactions, and therefore the reason for the inter dependency between the 'Commitment Source' and 'Expenditure Type Class' options on the Transaction Source Document configuration.  Extending the External Commitments model to support Labor and other types of transactions is on our roadmap.
