    No. As of now, we are not using electronic signature functionality for procurement contract. But do you beleive, Docusign will help us to meet my requirement?

    Hi Bas.

    Purchasing cloud currently does not support passing a source agreement for purchase orders created via FBDI, but this is planned for a future release.

    Hi Binayak, 

     

    I am not sure, but proably/maybe the file based loader (which you can populate in MS Excel) will allow you to create PO (with BPA Referece in bulk).


    For your reference, I've included the link to the doc:
    https://docs.oracle.com/en/cloud/saas/procurement/r13-update17d/oefbp/Purchase-Orders-308433461-fbdi-3.html

    @Ivan: can you tell in which sheet/column the BPA reference is to be captured?

    Please let me know your findings!

    Thanks,
    Bas

    Hi Binayak,

    Have you consider implementing docuSign for procurement contracts?

    Thanks,

    Ivan,

    In our enviroment,do we have any other options where we can create PO from BPA in bulk, without invoking the Webservice?

    Binayak,

    Please refer to the SOAP Web Services for Oracle Procurement Cloud Guide.

    Ivan,

    Can you please elaborate about Purchase Order Web Service ? How to  navigate to this functionality through Fusion Application?

  • Ivan Pena

    Hi Binayak,

    You can use the Purchase Order Web Service to create purchase orders with agreement reference.

    Bas - Your solution is correct. In case we are adding new lines, then the option to add through catalog pops up.

    Can you suggest, what is the process to create purchase Order from BPA in bulk than manually creating one by one?

     

    Thanks

    Hi Binayak, 

    For my understanding, you want to create the PO directly in Purchasing and would like to reference the BPA?

    In the screenshot, did you select an existing line on the PO or did you create a new line and invoked the action menu?
    I think only in the latter case, the add from catalog function pops-up.

    Although you may not be using requisitions, did you subscribe to Self Service Procurement? - As I understood only with a SSP subscription you're allowed to browse the catalog - but having said that - I would not know how to associate the PO to the BPA either ..

    Ivan,

    If i am clicking on Action tab on PO Line, i do not see any Actions -> Add from Catalog from the PO Lines region to search the BPA line and add it to the PO. So 

    Is it because, we do not have any item defined in our system?

    Binakak,

    In your previous post you said you were creating a new requisition, so I assumed you were using Self Service Procurement (which is were purchase requisitions are created.) However, it looks like you are creating a purchase order with no backing requisition.In this case, you can use Actions -> Add from Catalog from the PO Lines region to search the BPA line and add it to the PO.

    Hi Ivana,

    We are not using Self Service Procurement in our enviroment. Purchase Requisition is created from regular Purchase Requisition Page. So do you think, above solution is applicable when  SSP is not used? And also, i tried to capture BPA number at the PO line while creating a standard purchase order but the BPA number was not selected in the PO creation too. 

    Thanks

    Hi Binayak,

    The BPA needs to be available in the content zone assigned to the requester. Please check Support Note 1920430.1 for troubleshooting steps. Please also check the Manage Content Zones section of the Oracle Procurement Cloud Using Procurement Guide.

    Ivan,

     

    Thank you for your response. But can you provide some additional information about following statements?

     

    => You release against an agreement by creating a requisition line sourced to that agreement and processing it into a purchase order, or by directly creating a purchase order and sourcing lines to the agreement?

     

    Just to let you know that we do not have any inventory and we follow 2 way matching process. I created a purchase agreement and approved it. Now, while creating a new requisition, i am trying to search for the agreement but the agreement is not visible in the list of values for agreement for the supplier in the requisition screen.Do know, why the agreement is not visible in the requisition screen for the same supplier?

     

    Thanking You

    Binayak
