    Hi Gaurav,

    Have you looked at the Profile Option Name "Control Supplier Communication" at Administrative Level?

    Also, you can modify the Approval Flow to enable conditional notification to buyer, so buyer takes appropriate action in communicating to Supplier.

    Our recommendation is to write your own data model and report in BIP that queries what you want. Then, you can invoke the BIP report service to run the report and retrieve the results: https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E28280_01/bi.1111/e22259/webservices.htm#BIPDV907

    About testing, there is a profile option called PO_CONTROL_SUPPLIER_COMMUNICATION. The possible values for this are Enable, Disable and Override E-mail Recipient. You can always set this option to Override E-mail Recipient and provide a test email address for testing purpose. That way your supplier will not receive test emails. In fact this is one of our post clone steps in for non-prod environment after each refresh. Hope this helps!

    You can access the 'Manage Data Access for Users' task and assign BU specific 'Procurement Preparer' data role to the user.

    Once done, log off and back in and then the requisition preferences will allow you to switch to the other requisition Bu and create PRs.

    We implemented receipt on accrual and it has taken a long time to get to grips with it, our implementation partner completely underplayed the impact.

    These may be obvious to some but here are some pointers:

    The accounting is now driven by the receipt, if receipting is wrong the accounting is wrong , receipting is done by the users so make sure your training is spot on or you will find yourself with a lot of receipts to correct!

    Make sure all you receipt -invoice-PO matching tolerance are all tight this helps stop incorrect receipting-( separate tolerances for goods and value reqs)

    Make sure you have all the correct subledger accounting rules defined for extra accounting events like ( invoice price variance, expense adjustments)

    You need to define the receipt clearing rules , you also need to define a rule for "finally closed" POs or the accrual doesn't get released even if the documentation says it does.

    As well as all the other normal create accounting and other transfer processes you need to run the accrual match process, this updates the "Accrual reconciliation Report". This is you only report to see your outstanding accruals but if it has too many rows it won't open in excel only PDF (had an open SR for months).A download of the receipt accounting screen can help but it hasn't got all the info.

    Hope this helps someone!

    Hey, please review: Troubleshooting Document For Transaction Account Builder (Doc ID 2173389.1)

    4. Is Accrual Account

    c. Based on seeded TAD, please note:
            i. If Destination Type code is EXPENSE, Accrual account comes from Purchasing mapping set - Expense Accrual Account - Business Unit.
            ii. If Destination Type code is INVENTORY, Accrual account comes from Cost Management. Please ensure that all mapping sets in Cost Management have COA and values.
             List of Costing MS can be found in Page 18 in TAB Whitepaper (5.1.4 Additional Source Assignments for Accrual Account Transaction Type).


    Hope this helps

    Hi Nishant,

    As Best Practice oracle doesn't allow and recommend to import/export published sandbox.

    here is a note from oracle:-


    NO. Do not import sandboxes. This operation is reserved for Oracle internal development only.
    The ideal way to be used for migrating any customization from one environment to other is to use Customization Set Migration (CSM). The approach is to export and import customizations.

    The following oracle documentation talks about allowed Sandbox Operations: https://docs.oracle.com/cloud/latest/salescs_gs/OACEX/OACEX1607004.htm#OACEX1029145
    Topic: "Supported Sandbox Operations" and "Importing Sandboxes"
    It is clearly mentioned in the documentation not to Use Sandbox Import to avoid any conflicts that may lead to MDS Corruption.

    The following documentation shall provide insight on Moving Customizations across environments: https://docs.oracle.com/cloud/latest/salescs_gs/OACEX/OACEX1607004.htm#OACEX1606990


    please refer this document on oracle support Doc ID 2263724.1.





    Hi Nishanth,

    As a workaround, in the 'Configure Procurement Business Function' setup task, leave the 'Default Buyer' field as blank. Make sure there is no buyer assigned for the PR items in the Purchasing attributes. With this configuration, PR lines will refer to the BPA but will stop in the 'Process Requisitions' page because of unavailability of buyer details. Hope this would work. Please try and update.



  • Sunny Todkari

    We checked with Oracle support for the same requirement and came to know that this is not possible at this point of time.

    ER is open for the same. So, right now we are requesting users to manually disable the checkboxes every time they create the agreement. Users are not happy but we don't have any other option. We tried to do personalization but it was not feasible.

    Hi Siva,

    Within PO Approval Rules: Terms Approval Serial you can go for "Backing Requisition Exists Equals No" and Action Type = Automatic and Set Outcome To = Rejected (screenshot attached).
