    Hi Stephen,

    Your understanding is correct. For unmatched invoices, you need to ensure you pick the correct balancing segment values for the charge and liability accounts, so that IC entries are created if needed.

    Also, when an unmatched invoice comes into the shared services center how do you get it to hit the right BU? It seems like we would still need the payables service provider relationship to be setup?

  • Stephen Manning

    Thanks Ivan,

    So staying away from supply chain orchestration; since we can't have a cross-ledger service provider relationship at the beginning of the payables process our enterprise structure would need a dedicated Shared Service BU that will handle the entire PO to Payment flow after requisition and then intercompany gets the financials entries back to the requisitioning BU after payment?

    Hi Jim, 

    Not sure whether you found a solution yet, but did you consider sending the XML to OSN and pick it up from there to review the XML message?

    In case you managed to send it by email, would love to learn how you did it!

    Thanks,
    Bas

    Hi Stephen,

    It's not on the product roadmap. You could implement supply chain financial orchestration to achieve this, but I'd not recommend going down that route unless you need to support financial orchestration flows to meet other requirements.

    Hi Ivan,

    Is this functionality supported in a future release or on the product roadmap?

    Thanks,

    Hi Ramesh, Ivan,

    Ultimately, we want to send out XML's for approved PO's through an (S)FTP or any other shared location. Hence my setup for B2B Communication. I was first trying to setup to send the XML through e-mail to get an idea of what the XML looked like, but there's no guide on how to configure this.

    So if anyone knows what to do to set this up, all information is welcome. It's quite urgent.

    Hi Jim,

    Do you want to communicate the PO in XML format via email?

    Hi Jim,

    If you want to send Approved Purchase Orders via email then you just need to set the supplier site communication method as email.

    There is no need for B2B setup, let me know if i am missing something else

    Thanks,
    Ramesh

    Hi Renan,

    The bug you mention pertains auto-approval rules based on percentages (like ApprovalTotalPercentageChange <= 0.) and a work around was provided (Replace by ApprovalTotalPercentageChange <= 0.00000001.) Auto-approval rules based on total dollar amounts should not be affected by this issue.

    Thanks,

    Ivan

    Hello Ivan,

    Oracle mentioned it as Bug # 26403110. For your reference this is also SR 3-15027102841 which we submitted.

    Hi Renan,

    Do you have a bug number so that I can follow up internally?

    Thanks,

    Ivan

  • Renan Robles

    I would caution to be careful when setting up rules to auto approve. Out internal IT team setup rules to auto approve change orders on POs based on certain conditions. It did work at first but later we found out that some change orders that were supposed to route for approval sometimes get auto approved. This seems to be random. Oracle confirmed that there is a bug they need to fix that when PO amount increase is less than 1% it auto approves. This does not work for our business so we had to take back the rules our IT team had implemented. Hopefully Oracle fixes that bug soon. Good luck!

    Very few reports compared to AP, AR. Hope it gets updated. Thanks anyway.

  • Suman Guha

    Your approach of writing approval rules to look for specific changes for approval routing and auto approving otherwise, should work.
