    Update 20A Feature: Import Packaging String through Agreement Loader
    Summary:
    Update 20A Feature: Import Packaging String through Agreement Loader
    Content:

    Customers / Support

    As you are aware, in Update 19D, we released the feature that would allow requesters to search for agreement lines that would display packaging string details that were captured on the agreement line.

    This feature was available through the UI where the buyer or the procurement administrator responsible for creating agreements manually entered packaging string details on the relevant agreement lines through the UI.

    In Update 20A, this has been extended to make it easier to manage via the Agreement Loader. Here are additional details:

    ===========================================================================================

    You can use a product packaging string to let users know the exact quantity of items they are purchasing, especially when the UOM displayed on the search results page is different from the user's consumption UOM. You can now upload the Packaging String attribute through the Agreement Loader process for description-based lines. It’s an optional text attribute with 240 characters as the maximum allowed length. Here are the different formats you can use to upload the Packaging String attribute: 

    • Tab-Delimited Text: A new column Packaging String is introduced in the text template that can be downloaded using the Download resources button on the Upload Lines screen. 
    • Oracle XML: The value for the packaging string can be provided using the NAMEVALUE tag for each item (Parent Tag ITEM).
    • cXML: The value for the packaging string can be provided using the Extrinsic tag for each item (Parent tag ItemDetail).
    • CIF: In a CIF file, a new field can be added with title Packaging String and the value provided for the field will be uploaded. The other method is to use the Parametric Data column.

     

    NOTE: In all the four formats, you can provide the name of the attribute as Packaging String or PACKAGING_STRING.

    Update 20A Feature: Using Oracle Content and Experience Cloud (OCE) for Hosting Catalog Images
    Summary:
    How to use OCE for hosting catalog images
    Content:

    Customers 

    The Oracle Fusion Self-Service Procurement shopping experience is enhanced when requesters can view catalog product images while shopping. Catalog Administrators can associate images with agreement items, smart forms, punchout items, and browsing categories. Oracle Content and Experience is a cloud-based content hub to drive omni-channel content management and to accelerate experience delivery. It offers powerful collaboration and workflow management capabilities to streamline the creation and delivery of content and improve customer and employee engagement.

    You can now use Oracle Content and Experience Cloud to associate images with agreement items, smart forms, punchout items, and browsing categories. This ensures a better shopping experience for users as they can view catalog product images while shopping. Also, with Oracle Content and Experience Cloud, you have a better IT security as the images are stored and consumed in Fusion Applications, you don’t need to access third-party websites to store images. This is helpful, especially if access to third party websites is blocked.

    Please review the attached whitepaper for details on implementing this feature. The whitepaper is also available through support here: https://mosemp.us.oracle.com/mosspui/src/main/container/index.html#/

    How to default the ship-to location on XML order placed through OSN
    Content:

    We are in the process of creating a punchout catalog where we want to only have one specific ship-to location. Regardless of what the user chooses on the requisition, the order should always ship to a specific site. In the XML, I can see the ShipToLocationId value, and I'm trying to find a way to default that. We are on 19D and using OSN for the first time. Has anyone done this and able to provide some guidance? Thanks for your help!

    <ns1:ShipToLocationId>300000006760780</ns1:ShipToLocationId>

    Hi All

    Any one faced the below issues when approving the requisitions through mobile.

     

    The message you sent appears to be un-solicited. If you are responding to a notification, use the response link that was included with your notification.

    The NID string in response message appears to be corrupted/missing. Ensure that the NID string not modified and contains both beginning and ending 'NID'.

    ​Thanks!

    Same Approvers shouldnt approve or reject for PO or PR. One approve must be enoughf
    Content:

    Hi,

    I used 3 stage for PO and PR basicly. Like;

    Manager of Requester > Manager of Business > Project Manager

    These can be same users. Like Eren G. > Eren G. > Eren G

    When we faced like this case. I want to terminate with first stage. Its not necessary to send approval message again and again.

    How we can pass same users ?

     

    Thanks

    Option to hardcode category sent by Supplier in punchout
    Content:

    Hi,

    Currently we are setting up around 7 punchouts with various suppliers

    Each of the Suppliers pass UNSPSC code and we have internal categories for each supplier

    The UNSPSC code runs into thousands and do not want to create a mapping set for each code with the internal categories

    Is there an option to ignore or hard code the category passed by the supplier and map it to the internal categories

    Thanks

    Hi All,

    I could see below two new attributes were added in "Collect Planning Data" screen in 19D but I am unable to see related functionality (how it works) notes available in user guide or implementation guide or release notes.

    1. Enable Organization Group Collection
    2. Organization Group

    I was trying to group some organizations but not able to do so. Is there any other configuration which we need to. Screenshot attached.

    Hi,

    We have recently implemented SQM. When someone completes a questionnaire the vendor management team get an email notification to say it has been completed and requires review. Is it possible to get the completed questionnaire included as an attachment in the email (preferably pdf), so that someone can review it without having to log into the system?

    Thanks
