    How to edit Supplier Portal user interface to introduce modifications
    Summary:
    A step by step guide to edit Supplier Portal user interface.
    Content:

    Process to edit user interface of Supplier Portal pages is slightly different from the one followed for editing user interface of pages used by users internal to your organization. These changes could include making fields read-only, required or changing field labels etc.This topic explains how to edit the user interface of Supplier Portal pages. As an example, we will make make the Corporate Web Site field required on the Edit Profile Change Request page.

     

    A. How to navigate to edit User Interface of Supplier Portal pages
    In order to access the Edit User Interface page, you will need to create a dummy supplier and supplier contact with a user account. The user assigned to this contact will need to login to Supplier Portal to proceed with the changes. Here are exact steps you will need to follow.

    1. Access Suppliers workarea as a Supplier Administrator or Supplier Manager.
       
    2. Create a dummy supplier, add a supplier contact and create a user account for this contact. An email address needs to be provided to create this user account and this email address needs to belong to the user who will be responsible for changing the Supplier Portal pages. NOTE: Ensure that the user account is created successfully before proceeding to the next step (Account Status needs to be Active). Also, ensure that the user has been assigned all the appropriate roles so that he can access the pages he needs to change. For instance, the user will need the Supplier Self Service Administrator role to be able to change the Edit Profile Change Request page that is accessed from the Manage Profile page.

    7. Click the Apply and OK buttons on the Component Properties popup to save the changes. Verify changes are displayed on the page. Click the Close button to exit the Editing User Interface page.
       
    8. Once the changes are final, you need to publish the sandbox so that the change is available to all users. In this specific example, the Corporate Web Site is displayed as a required field and is validated as such.

    Goods Received from different party, but beneficiary of payment is different
    Content:

    Hi,

    In Oracle Cloud Procurement and payables, is it possible to have a scenario where goods are received from a different party, but beneficiary of payment is different ?

    I'm not sure but I think supplier relationship (if that exist in cloud) can be leveraged for this purpose where goods are received from a different party and my payment goes to actual supplier.

    What are the setups needed to achieve this scenario ?

    Thanks for your time and inputs !

    User language session in PDF reports
    Content:

    We are looking into using Response Tabulation report for communication to outer users.

    On abstract page this isn't a problem since we can choose to display it in one language.

    But in the application is a different situation.

    Is there a an option to get the user (buyer/supplier) session language so we can display the results in their language?
    Either to get it through data model or some other way?

    How to Import Personalization from One environment to Other...84.0

    How to Import Personalization from One environment to Other environemnt
    Content:

    Hi,

    We made personalization in the supplier portal - bid responses to hide certain fields like promise delivery date etc. We performed this in TEST environment and we are in the process of production cut-over. We realized that in prod environment we cannot create bids and simulate the supplier portal to perform this personalization.

    Is there an option to import personalization from one environment to other? if so any guidelines on this will be very helpful.

    Thanks

    Supplier Bank Account update5

    Supplier Bank Account update
    Summary:
    Letting Supplier create or update Bank Account at Site Level
    Content:

    Good Morning!

    Have a quick question and wanted to check if anyone had similar request from clients as this is the third time I am seeing this requirement. I know in Supplier Portal, Suppliers are only allowed to update records at header level. Which is fine, but one information which is Bank account has no relevance at header but Site. The question is can this be done or an enhancement request be created so that Supplier can select a BU and assign a Bank account to that BU on an ongoing basis using Supplier Portal. Currently Supplier adds a bank account it goes to header, and then the Vendor management team has to go and take that information and assign or create at the site level which seems redundant. Please share how you have tackled this in past and if you see a value in changing this particular feature ?

    Best,

    Arpan
