    Summary:
    Understanding the data access control on Manage Supplier Registration Requests page and their impacts
    Content:

    You can search for supplier registration requests from Suppliers Workarea using task ‘Manage Supplier Registration Requests’. As detailed below, this task allows users to control data access by provisioning the privilege and granting agent access.

    1. Users cannot access the task without having the privilege ‘Search Supplier Registration Request’, and
    2. Users cannot search supplier registration requests from those Inviting Procurement BUs for which users are not Procurement Agents with Manage Suppliers action allowed.

    This post provides details about the second security mentioned above.

    When searching for supplier registration requests, there are multiple search options available to help users search specific supplier registration request. One of the search options available is ‘Inviting Procurement BU’.

    The value of this attribute represents the business unit that invited the supplier to register. You must note that all external registration requests have an Inviting Procurement BU value, whereas internal registration requests may or may not have.

    When you setup the user as a Procurement Agent and grant the access to Manage Suppliers action for a particular procurement business unit, the user will be able to search for supplier registration requests that were invited to register through this procurement business unit (refer screenshot 2).

    When a user is not a Procurement Agent or is not granted access to the Manage Suppliers action for specific procurement business unit, the user will not be able to see any supplier registration requests that were registered through this procurement business unit. If user is not a Procurement Agent for any business unit, then the search panel will not show any value for the Inviting Procurement BU attribute, and search results will only be from those requests that have no value for Inviting Procurement BU (refer screenshot 3). This also implies that none of the external supplier registration requests will show up in the search results (refer screenshot 4).
