    Title:
    "auto" cancel item reservation or release the item from inventory
    Summary:
    "auto" cancel item reservation or release the item from inventory
    Content:

    Hi Experts,

    I know when we receive an order we "reserve" material from inventory, 

    but what if the customer doesn't show up to pick the item from the inventory,

    is there any way we can "auto" cancel the order or release the item from inventory so someone else can reserve it?

    i.e. something like if the customer doesn't show up in 3 days to pick up the items then the inventory will release the items reserve (or we cancel the order) 

     

    Best Regards

     

    Yasmin

    'Calculate Min-Max Planning Policy Parameters' not calculating the Min and Max Quantities of the Item
    Content:

    Hi Team,

    We have setup the Min-Max Planning Classification Groups,Min-Max Planning Policy profiles and Min-Max Planning Policy Profile Assignments in our POD.

    We have also uploaded 6 months of historical transactions for the item (Transaction type: In transit shipment).

    After that we are submitting 'Calculate Min-Max Planning Policy Parameters' process.

    The Process completes successfully without triggerring the 'Import Item' process and MIN MAX Quantities are not getting computed for the item.

    Can you please help us with identifying the issue. Why MIN MAX Quantities are not getting computed?

    Below is part of Log File i have pasted:

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    compute_policy_param function, v_org_id is 300000039088147

    'Quantity-based' Services and 'Amount-Based'...35.0

    How To Manage Services Purchasing In Quantity? (Doc ID 2228507.1) To BottomTo Bottom

    Modified: Jan 31, 2017 Type: HOWTO
     
     

    In this Document

      Goal
      Solution
      References

     

    Applies to:

    Oracle Fusion Self Service Procurement Cloud Service - Version 11.1.11.1.0 and later
    Oracle Fusion Self Service Procurement - Version 11.1.11.1.0 and later
    Information in this document applies to any platform.

    Goal

    User should be able to select line type of 'Fixed Price Services' and still be able to specify Quantity and Unit Price (as if the line type was 'Goods'). 

    Currently, purchasing IT services are done and billed in quantity.

    Requirement is even though purchasing a service and not the goods, to be able to define Unit Price corresponding
    to Invoicing for a day of service (for example Senior IT consultant)

    Create BPA line for IT services with
    - Standard purchasing line with code = Goods
    - Purchase Basis = Goods

    Service purchasing must be done in quantity.
    As the "product type" is derived from the purchasing line type, on the PO line, value is equal to the goods (and not services) : it can impact E-tax calculation.

    It seems that Purchase Basis information drive two information at the same time : purchasing in quantity or amount, purchasing in goods or service, so how to manage services purchasing in quantity ?

    NB: more than 60-70 % of purchase order are automatically created (the aim is 80%)

    Other example when requester try to create Noncatalog Request, he can choose between to standard line type :
    Goods or services billed by amount : "product type" automatically derived = service
    Goods or services billed by quantity : "product type" automatically derived = goods

    Users can not create a Noncatalog Request with line "Goods or services billed by quantity" and "product type" automatically derived = service.

    'Withdrawn: Approve Purchase Order' email...2

    Title:
    'Withdrawn: Approve Purchase Order' email notifications
    Summary:
    I am seeking guidance on how to disable these notifications coming through to approval group members.
    Content:

    We have recently upgraded to Oracle Fusion R13 (18B). Members of the approval group for purchase orders are now receiving an FYI type email notification when another member of the group approves a PO. The email only comes through 3 x days AFTER the PO was originally approved. These notifications are clogging up our email accounts and we would like to disable.

    Can anybody confirm the steps I need to undertake to stop this notification from being actioned? I do not wish to affect any other notifications that are set up (we do not have notifications set up to inform of PO approval however).

    I believe the task might be 'DocumentApproval'. Within the 'Notifications' tab, I can see that 'Enable Reminder' is checked and the frequency is set as every 3 x days. This would correspond to when we receive these notifications compared to when the PO was approved. Would simply un-ticking this box have the desired effect?

    Many thanks

    18C Upgrade Known Issue in Manage Requisitions5.0
    Topic posted February 2, 2019 by AshokBlack Diamond: 60,000+ Points, tagged FAQ, How-To, Requisition Processing in Procurement > Self Service Procurement public
    Title:
    18C Upgrade Known Issue in Manage Requisitions
    Summary:
    Manage Requisitions Issue and Resolution
    Content:

    Customers / Support

    On upgrade to 18C, we have heard from a couple of customers of an issue when navigating to Manage Requisitions. So if Support is reading this, please ensure you follow these steps first before you log a bug or post on the Forums. This could potentially save you and the customer a lot of triage time.

    Issue:

    When a user navigates to the Manage Requisitions page for first time is receiving this  error: Definition TrsPurchaseOrderId of type Attribute is not found in RequisitionSearch. The user is also not able to see any records when using a saved search.

    Resolution:

    There appears to have been an issue during upgrade pertaining to saved searches of a specific nature. The workaround that we have recommended to such customers that has worked consists of a few options. See details below:

    Solution #1:

    1. Login with user who has the issue
    2. Go to Manage Requisitions and search.This step throws an error. 
    3. Create a saved search named 'All Requisitions' and set it as default criteria. 
    4. Click done to go back. or Logout and Login. 
    5. Go to Manage Requisitions and perform search and check if you see the error. 
    6. If there is an error, remove the saved search 'All Requisitions' and re-check.

    Solution #2:
    1. Login to the application
    2. Go to Manage Requisitions. (This step throws error) 
    3. Select a seeded saved search (select one "saved search" that can't be 
    deleted, delete button is in gray) and make it as a default one. 
    4. Click Done to go back. 
    5. Logout and Login with same user and check if the issue is still there

    Solution #3:

    If after trying the solutions above, the issue still exists, log an SR and work with development. They had the following solution to be executed by the customers in some such cases:

    Solution would be to delete the saved search using WLST: 
    deleteMetadata(application='ORA_FSCM_UIAPP',server='UIServer_1',docs='/persdef/oracle/apps/prc/por/manageReq/uiModel/view/mdssys/cust/User/npaul.ext%40orange.com/RequisitionSearchVO.xml.xml');

    Customers

    This is for your immediate notice and consumption. We recently have had a few customers that upgraded to 18C. These customers use BI Publisher Template based requisition approvals. These notifications have also been customized based on the customers' unique business requirements. 

    Problem:

    Title: BI Publisher Requisition Approval Email Notifications Don’t Work After 18C Update

    Description: BI Publisher email notifications that you enabled in Release 13, update 18B don’t work after your update to 18C

    Bug: 28958730

    Resolution:

     

    Resolution: 

    After updating to 18C, you must delete and recreate the email notification report layouts in the BI Publisher Custom folder. Replace each deleted layout as follows:

    1. Find a predefined report in the BI catalog.

    2. Use the Customize option to create a copy in the Custom folder.

    3. Edit the copied report layout template to meet your needs.

    Refer to the Procurement Configurable Email Notifications: Overview topic in the Oracle Procurement Cloud: Implementing Procurement guide for more information.

    For more information about this and other issues you should be aware of, refer to the Known Issues for Oracle Procurement Cloud, Release 13 (update 18C).

    Thanks

    19A Bug Fix: Application Error when clicking on a catalog in...5.0

    19A Bug Fix: Application Error when clicking on a catalog in the Top Categories region
    Summary:
    Unexpected application error when clicking on a catalog in the Top Categories region
    Content:

    Customers / Support

    We fixed the following occurrence in 19A related to the Top Categories region in the Self Service Procurement Shopping Home page.

    What was happening:

    When a user navigated to the Top Categories region in the Shopping home page and clicked on a catalog in the 'Top Categories' region, an unexpected application error was thrown. This did not occur in all cases but in specific ones.

    Analysis:

    There was an issue with a specific use case where the category that was identified as a top category had one and only one smart form assigned to it, then said issue occurred.

    Any workaround?

    Until you uptake the fix, the suggestion was to associate one more smart form or item to said category. If this is done, the error no longer occurs.

    If any of you have noticed this occurrence, this article is for you.

    19A Bug Fix: Tax not calculated in certain cases when...15.0
    Topic posted January 20, 2019 by AshokBlack Diamond: 60,000+ Points, tagged How-To, Requisition Import, Requisition Processing in Procurement > Self Service Procurement public
    Title:
    19A Bug Fix: Tax not calculated in certain cases when requisitions are created via FBDI
    Summary:
    Import requisitions in certain cases were not calculating taxes correctly. Now fixed.
    Content:

    Issue:

    Customer in this case was importing requisitions via FBDI. The customer provides values for some tax attributes. Note that the requisitions in these cases were imported in status 'Incomplete'. The user then opens the requisition from the UI. At this time, the bug is triggered. The issue is that the user provided tax attribute values are overridden by system defaulted values.

    NOTE: The customer provided Tax Classification Code in this specific use case.

    Resolution:

    Any attributes that are user provided in the FBDI template ought to be retained and tax computations ought to use those values. The fix achieves this requirement.
