    Title:
    Need to attach the final signed documents from Supplier to Purchase Order
    Summary:
    Our requirement is we need attach a final signed legal document from Supplier after the Purchase order is in open status
    Content:

    When we send out Purchase order to Supplier, we have requirement to send legal document with it and once the supplier has signed this document and send it back to us, we need attach to that PO in oracle for our tracking purpose, but this is creating the change order. So, is there a way where we can avoid this change order to initiate when we attach a legal document?

    Notification of invalid email address in PO Communication135.0
    Topic posted February 13, 2019 by Judy HamnerSilver Trophy: 7,500+ Points, tagged Notifications, Orders, Supplier Communication in Procurement > Purchasing public
    Title:
    Notification of invalid email address in PO Communication
    Summary:
    If a Supplier profile has an invalid email address and the PO is sent to that email, how can we identify that the PO was not successfully sent/received?
    Content:

    We receive notification emails when POs are implemented.  However, if it is sent to an invalid email address (incorrectly entered on the Supplier Profile), where can we identify this rejection?  If a PO is not received by a supplier, we currently have no way to identify this situation.  It seems that there should be a notification at some point in the transmission that the email wasn't delivered successfully. 

    Thanks,
    Judy

    Title:
    Purchase Order Attachments Not Sent To Supplier via email
    Summary:
    In testing the new functionality in R13: Send purchasing document attachments as separate files, we have not been successful in getting the attachments to send when the communication method is email.
    Content:

    Based on all the documentation I can find in Oracle Support, the configuration and opt-in/enabling of the new feature is set up correctly in our environment.  However, the attachments to the Supplier are not being communicated via email with the purchase order document.

    I am attaching screen shots of the configuration that is set up.  Have we missed something in our configuration?

    Can we hide the announcement section that is displayed for the regular login under supplier portal login?

    We are going live with supplier portal for our P2P process and noticed that the announcement section which is targeted for internal audience is displayed under the supplier portal login as well.

    Any trick or tips to hide it?

    B2B PO CommunicationAnswered9
    Topic posted August 3, 2017 by Jim Van TongerlooGold Trophy: 10,000+ Points, tagged How-To, Orders, Setup, Supplier Communication in Procurement > Purchasing public
    Title:
    B2B PO Communication
    Summary:
    Can not configure B2B PO communication
    Content:

    Hi,

    I've been trying to get my approved PO's sent out through B2B communication and I've done all the setup as mentioned on this DOC ID: https://support.oracle.com/epmos/faces/DocumentDisplay?id=1995064.1

    However, they only talk about integration with OSN. I want to simply send the file by e-mail or store it as a file on a location. But those setups are not covered. For example for email protocol, it asks me my email id and host name, I have no idea what to fill in. For File protocol it simply asks for a folder.

    But for both protocols I'm getting the same error:

    Transport error: [MsgCannotBeSent] SMTP message cannot be sent.

    Anyone who has experience with this? I've searched forums and communities but haven't found anything. My next step will be an SR.

    Thanks

    ~Jim

    Purchase order workflow customization
    Content:

    Hi,

    I want to customize the purchase order workflow so the mail message to the supplier will include additional attachments as follows:

    1) Buyer create Purchase order with Item # A.  Item # A have few attachments in the master item page ( see attached file )

    2) Buyer submit the Purchase order for approval

    3) Upon Purchase order approval, the customization will automatically attach the files from step # 1 to the supplier mail message.

    Any ideas how to acheive that ?

    Thanks Shlomo

    Implementing Supplier Audit History for R13
    Content:

    Hi,

    I've tried reading the guides on "Implementing Supplier Audit History" but all the references are to the procurement application but all we have is the supplier product.

    Is there any useful guidance on viewing supplier audit history in R13?

    Thanks

    Purchasing Attachments FAQ74.8
    Topic posted April 21, 2018 by Boyuan ZhuGold Medal: 3,500+ Points, tagged Approvals/Notification, FAQ, Orders, Supplier Communication in Procurement > Purchasing public
    Title:
    Purchasing Attachments FAQ
    Content:

    Customers can upload attachments to their purchasing documents and communicate those attachments to internal approvers and suppliers. Here are the answers to some commonly asked questions.

    1. How many attachments can be uploaded to a purchasing document, and how big can they be?
    There are no limits on how many files can be uploaded to the document. The maximum size of an uploaded file is 2 GB. This value is controlled by the FND_FILE_UPLOAD_MAX_SIZE profile option on the Manage Administrator Profile Values page. The limit on the total size of uploaded files is determined by the space purchased for the Content Server.

    When communicating attachments electronically or over email, there are additional limitations detailed in the answers below.  

     

    2. Are there any restrictions on what files can be uploaded?
    There are no restrictions on file type.

     

    3. What is the maximum attachment size limit for emails?
    The maximum email size (content + attachments) that can be sent by the mail server is 15MB. Any emails exceeding these settings will not be sent. On top of this setting, approval email and supplier communication email sizes are controlled by the additional settings below. 

     

    4. What happens when the size limit is exceeded in an approval notification email?
    Approval notification emails also respect the MaxSizeOfEmailAttachmentsInKB and MaxNumberOfEmailAttachments properties on the SOA server. The MaxSizeOfEmailAttachmentsInKB property controls the maximum email size and needs to be smaller or equal to the http.maxmessagesize. The default value is 5MB. The MaxNumberOfEmailAttachments property controls the number of attachments in an email and the default value is 10.

    Any attachments after 10 attachments or 5MB of total attachments will be attached as a link instead of a file in the notification. This behavior attempts to keep the email size below the maximum size so that the email can be sent. Attachments attached as links will not be visible in the email, but approvers will be able to view the attachment links in the online approval notification.

     

    5. What happens when the size limit is exceeded in a supplier communication email?
    Supplier communication emails will also respect the Maximum File Size Megabytes setting on the Configure Procurement Business Function page. The recommended setting is 5MB.

    If the total attachment size exceeds this setting, the email will be sent with only the PDF so that the email size is below maximum size. Additionally, a notification will be sent to the buyer indicating that not all attachments were sent to the supplier.

     

    6. Can attachments be sent as separate files in a supplier communication email?
    By default, attachments will be sent as a single Zip file in the supplier communication email. Customers who want to send the attachments as separate files can enable the feature Send Purchasing Document Attachments as Separate Files on the Edit Features: Purchasing page. The same size limitations apply to the total size of the separate files. 

     

    7. Can attachments be included in electronic communication?
    Attachments can be included in the bodies of OAGIS 10.1 purchase order outbound collaboration messages. To enable attachments in electronic communication, set the profile option Include Attachments in Electronic Communication to Yes. The maximum attachment size can be set on the Manage Collaboration Messaging Configuration page, and the default setting is 2MB.

    Need for Supplier Create/Update cloud event in OIC
    Content:

    Hi,

    There is a requirement to subscribe Supplier create/update event in OIC, which is currently not available in ERP cloud event catalog service. I just went through the below document, which has all the events of Procurement and SCM, I still didn't find the  event for creating/updating supplier. Can you please help me with this?

    Also, I didn't find the event for Location, that gets triggered as soon as there is an updates in the location. 

    Should i raise ER requesting these two events?

    Supplier Registration email concerns if SSO is enabled65.0
    Topic posted June 4, 2019 by Vineet GangwarBlue Ribbon: 750+ Points, tagged How-To, Public Sector, Security, Setup, Supplier Communication, Supplier Creation, Supplier Registration, Supplier User Account, Tip in Procurement > Supplier Management public
    Title:
    Supplier Registration email concerns if SSO is enabled
    Summary:
    When SSO is enabled, organisations are suppose to disable the user account related email and this disables the emails for new account creations for supplier as well.
    Content:

    If SSO is enabled, user account creation emails are generally disabled and this causes a challenge to implement supplier portal. As suppliers do not get communicated about their account creations automatically as soon as the account is created, followings are the possible solutions (and their challenges) which can be suggested to clients (there can be few more but these are based on my understandings of the application):

    1: Once supplier is registered and account is crated, go to security console, change the user category and reset the password to resend the emails to suppliers.

    Challenges - In most of the public (even in private) sectors, this activity is performed by a dedicated team of supplier admins/managers and they are not supposed to have the access of "Security Console" because of organisations security policies. Hence this solution doesn't sound feasible to clients.

     

    2- Keep notifications enabled and modify the content of user account email. Detail clear cut instructions for employees and suppliers on how they can access the application but again it comes with the risk that employees (new) might miss the instruction and start using it with the credentials provided in email rather that the SSO ones, which is again big concern for organisations.

     

    These are the 2 possible solutions which I could have thought of based on my understanding of Cloud application. Please feel free to correct me or suggest any alternate solution if you have come across similar requirement.  

    Thanks
