    Hi All,

    When I inactivate terminated users in Oracle, this report is removing their name on requisitions even though the PO requester is still that user

    Thanks,

    Customers and Support,

    We receive a lot of questions around the requirement to send notifications to users that are not part of the seeded user routing designed in our Self Service Procurement flows. This article, thanks to my colleague Khalil (an expert in approvals), finds its way for your review and explains the feature that you can potentially consider to meet a few of these asks.

    As always, do provide us your feedback, observations and ratings so we can understand if these articles are indeed as helpful as we expect them to be.

    Thanks

    19D Configurable template Caching
    Content:

    Hi team

    We are facing issues with configurable workflow notification templates after upgrade to 19D , Any changes done in the BI template do not reflect instantly . There is a lag typically of 24 hours for the changes to be reflected , Not sure if some job is running in the background

    We tried even clearing the Cache from XMLPServer , but does not work for us

    This is happening consistently across Requisition , Change Order  and even configured templates from Financials .

    Has anyone else faced this issue . We do have a reference SR3-21528697831 open for this

    Thanks

    Rohan

    Suggestions in Return to Vendor process15.0

    Suggestions in Return to Vendor process
    Content:

    Hi All,

     

    While responding to a High-Tech Contract Manufacturer Client RFP, looking for suggestions to provide solution for their major pain point - ‘Return to Vendor’.

     

    For them, this is an issue, since once they receive the goods in Inventory, they may use it only after 3-6 months. While using in Work order, if they find any item is defective, they raise OSP for this item and send to Supplier for repair/replacement.

    They have to raise OSP instead of Return to Vendor, because of the delay in using the items in Work order, and by that time, Purchase Order against which item was received would have been Finally Closed.

     

    We are planning to suggest Oracle Cloud – Return to Vendor with replacement. Kindly suggest :

    1.     How can we address returns for Finally Closed POs ?

    2.     If any better solution to above problem?

     

    Thanks,

    Dev Thota

    19D Requisition Approval tasks45.0

    19D Requisition Approval tasks
    Content:

     The Requisition approval tasks in 19D have changed since 19C. The Approval History does not show the history or future approvers like they previously have. For each task, the Approval history only shows the initiator and the approver it is currently with.

    The email approval notifications show the same information, only the current approver. 

    Is this a known change or is there anything we need to do to resolve this?

    19D Patch inline comments for Email template4

    19D Patch inline comments for Email template
    Content:

    Hi

    During testing of 19D patch , we observed that inline comments when approver requests more information and when submitter respondes by clicking submit information in the email are not getting captured in the email notification in the approval history section

    This also extends that the approval comments typed in are also not getting captured . This is happening for configurable workflows after 19D patch .

    Anyone else facing this issue during testing  . This is working in 19C patch

    Thanks

    Rohan

    Title:
    Change Order Cost Center manager Approval at line level
    Summary:
    Whenever there is change order happens against PO and changes done at line level the change order should follow newly added line cost center manager approval hierarchy not the existing lines
    Content:

    There is change order(XX)exist against PO (***) and which are having status either Incomplete/Pending Approvals or Approved.

    Requirement : If new line are been added in to change order(XX) then it should always follow the newly added lines (cost center) approval hiearachy. 

    Rules are written on amount changed at header level including the cost center numbers with respect cost center manger approvals and which is working fine.

    User needs that,if there is additonal line added in the change order then it should only follow the added lines cost center manager approvals not the exisiting lines cost center approvers.

    Is there any attributes where We can compare the cost center with existing lines cost center and build approval hieararchy around it.

    Can any one help on the same.

    Quick Tip: Approval Rules related workaround for big...5.0

    Quick Tip: Approval Rules related workaround for big approval amounts
    Content:

    Support / Customers

    This note is primarily to help Support triage such issues. I am providing this tip based on a suggestion from Development as there have been more than a couple bugs logged in recent times where the symptoms are the same common issue relating to approval rules processing requisitions with large amounts.

    Business Context:

    When a requisition is created with the Requisition Approval Amount being a very high value, say for instance 30,000,000,000, then the approval process fails. The requisition is rejected after submit with the error message:

    Error occurred while displaying History tree table. Error in task {0} Please correct the error

    Development Analysis and Workaround:

    There is a known BPM issue where comparison operation between big number (30,00,00,000) and small number (0) fails. The solution is to make both the operand of similar type. For instance, in the case of this customer, we changed the condition: Amount >= 0 To: Amount >= 0.001.

    Note that this is suggested as a workaround until the core issue is resolved to prevent the approval process from failing.
