    Title:
    Monitor Expiring or Expired Supplier Business Classifications
    Summary:
    A couple of ways for supplier administrators to monitor expiring or expired supplier business classification certificates
    Content:

    Keeping supplier business classification information accurate and current is very important for the buying organization in terms of maintaining high quality supply base data.  There are a couple of ways that supplier administrators can monitor supplier business classification certificates that are expired or expiring soon.

    1. From Suppliers Overview page, there is a region called Supplier Business Classifications.  There are two tabs in this region: Expiring and Expired.  Under the Expiring tab, user can find business classification certificates that are expiring soon.  User can filter the results using switcher Expiring and select values among Next 30/60/90 days.  Under the Expired tab, user can find business classification certificates that are already expired.  For either tab, user can click on supplier name to drill down to the profile details.  User can find out the contact information for the supplier and follow up to update the certificate information.
    2. The buying organization can also schedule process to periodically review supplier business classification status and send out notification to supplier user about expiring or expired certificates.  User can follow these steps:
      • From Setup and Maintenance work area, navigate to the task Configure Supplier Notifications.
      • Under Expiring Business Classifications, provide values for attributes: Notify Prior to Expiration in Days and Reminder Frequency in Days.  For example, user enters 6 for Notify Prior to Expiration in Days and 2 for Reminder Frequency in Days.  The application will notify suppliers with business classifications expiring 6 days prior to the certificate End Date.  Then it will also send out reminder notifications every 2 days until the certificate is expired.
      • From Navigator, under Tools > Scheduled Processes, schedule a new process called Supplier Business Classifications Notification.  User can schedule to run it periodically or immediately based on business needs.
      • After the successful completion of the process, notifications are sent out to supplier users.  For expiring business classifications, system will use the settings defined on the Configure Supplier Notifications task to send out notifications and the supplier user who is the Administrative Contact will receive the notification.  For expired business classification, both administrative contact user as well as the supplier contact entered as Provided By for the expired certificate will receive the notification.

    Supplier Management - Approvers - Approval Notification and...45.0

    Title:
    Supplier Management - Approvers - Approval Notification and UI Access
    Summary:
    Clarifications about Supplier Management Approvers access through Worklist versus UI (application pages)
    Content:
    • As Supplier Management Approver users can be approvers in the supplier management approval flows without requiring SQM user subscription (included), will these “approvers” be expected to use only the Worklist to open the approval notification or will they have access to the overview page for Suppliers work area supplier profile change requests that are pending approval (like the Supplier Administrator or Supplier Manager)? My current assumption is the approvers that are not Supplier Administrator or Supplier Manager will only be able to access the approval notification through the worklist.
    • Also, as approvers can edit the changes initiated from supplier portal - In the approval notification of the change request, there is a link to navigate approvers to a page to make minor edits to the change request. Will this ability to edit the change request be available to “Approvers” (who don’t have the Supplier Administrator or Supplier Manager role assigned to them)?

    Adding site assignments to a supplier site.5.0

    Title:
    Adding site assignments to a supplier site.
    Summary:
    How do I successfully add site assignments to a supplier site
    Content:

    A supplier site is always created in the context of a Procurement BU. This association allows Procurement BU to set terms, controls, and policies which govern how procure to pay transactions are executed between its Client BUs and the supplier.

    A supplier site can have one or more site assignments and site assignments indicate which Client BUs can transact with the site in question.

    Creating site assignments is a crucial step for suppliers to be able to transact with the buying organization. For example, a supplier cannot be specified on a purchase order if a site and site assignment in the correct Procurement BU and Client BU respectively are not defined on the supplier profile.

    It is mandatory to specify a Client BU on a site assignment as shown in the screenshot below:

    If for some reason your Client BU is not available to be selected, you will need to verify the following:

    1. A service provider - client relationship exists between the Procurement BU of the supplier site and the Client BU you want to use on the supplier site assignment.

    NOTE: To view the relationship, navigate to the Manage Business Unit task in Setup and Maintenance and look for the Client BU.  Access the Manage Service Providers action and confirm that the Procurement BU is listed under Procurement Service Providers as shown in the screenshots below.

        

    2. The Client BU has either a Requisitioning or Payables Invoicing business function.

    NOTE: To view the business functions assigned to the Client BU, access the Assign Business Functions action as shown in the screenshot below and verify that the Client BU has one of the functions listed above.

       

    3. The Procurement BU and Client BU are active.

    What is the purpose of the Supplier Match Batch Feature? How to utilize this feature?

    Under Define Supplier Matching > Manage Enterprise Data Quality Matching Configurations, what is the purpose of Batch: Match Configuration Parameters?

    This question arose, because after following the Oracle setup documentation (all steps of Implementing-Procurement.pdf > Enabling Supplier Match: Explained), I obtained results after defining Real-Time Match Configuration Parameters, BUT I do not know where in the system the Batch Match Configuration Parameters are utilized. Would it be a scheduled process that runs?

     

    The Oracle Implementing Procurement manual does not provide any detail about the purpose of the Batch feature. I have not been able to find additional insight anywhere else.

     

    Thanks, Catherine

    Contact Duplicate Identification and Address Duplicate...35.0

    Contact Duplicate Identification and Address Duplicate Identification
    Summary:
    What is the purpose of "Contact Duplicate Identification" or "Address Duplicate Identification" ?
    Content:

    Under Define Supplier Matching > Manage Enterprise Data Quality Matching Configurations, what is the purpose of "Contact Duplicate Identification" or "Address Duplicate Identification" ?

    This question arose, because after following the Oracle setup documentation (all steps of Implementing-Procurement.pdf > Enabling Supplier Match: Explained), I obtained results after setup of 'Account Duplicate Identification' BUT no results after setup for 'Contact Duplicate Identification' or 'Address Duplicate Identification'. The 'Account Duplicate Identification' setup provided results when testing in the system or testing Actions > Review Configuration Results.

     

    My results are in a system with multiple suppliers, duplicate information within multiple supplier records, and duplicate information within one supplier record.

     

    The Oracle Implementing Procurement manual does not provide any detail about the purpose of "Contact Duplicate Identification" or "Address Duplicate Identification". I have not been able to find additional insight anywhere else.

     

    Thanks, Catherine

    Supplier does not receive email to reset user account...15.0

    Title:
    Supplier does not receive email to reset user account password for Supplier Portal
    Summary:
    No email notifiaction to reset the password/access supplier portal is sent to the supplier
    Content:

    Tested two scenarios:

    A) Added a contact with a user account to an existing supplier record in the vendor master as a supplier administrator -> new supplier contact does not get any email to reset the password and log into the portal


    B) Registered as a supplier via the supplier portal registration link -> no email to reset the password; only received email THAT "Supplier Registration Request 1001 Was Approved"

    Normally, the supplier should receive 2 emails:

    1) Oracle Fusion Applications-Welcome E-Mail: "Congratulations! Your Oracle Fusion Applications account has been successfully created. Please follow the link below to reset your password". [LINK HERE]
    2) FYI: Supplier Contact User Account for Saskatchewan Health was Created: "You were granted access to the supplier application for Saskatchewan Health. The user name and password for your user account will be sent in a separate e-mail." This email has all the roles that were assigned to the supplier.

    Has anyone else encountered this?
