    Requisition to PO Automation not working any longer9
    Topic posted November 5, 2019 by Anand KandRed Ribbon: 250+ Points, tagged Public Sector, Requisition Processing 
    Title:
    Requisition to PO Automation not working any longer
    Summary:
    Requisition was created and approved, but the PO's are no longer getting generated
    Content:

    When we created the requisitions with the 'Negotiated' box checked, backed by Buyer Assignment Rules for the category, the PO was automatically generated till we had the 19C. We are not able to see this happen automatically since the last day or so.

    The requisition is picking up the buyer name correctly, but not progressing to the Purchase Order. Upon navigating to the 'Process Requisitions' task, the Requisition is not available for processing into the PO, nor do we see any incomplete PO's created for the requisition in question.

    I ran the diagnostic for the Touchless PO Creation, and see the following:

    "Prc_bu_id is stamped and item_source is not req_import or req_service. So this reqline should have been eligible for Touchless PO Creation."

    There are no error codes showin in the 'Req to PO Automation Failed" column.

    I then ran the 'Requisition Not Present in Process Requisitions' diagnostic, hoping to create the PO manually, but I do not see any requisition to process there either.

    "reqs_in_pool_flag is N. Req to PO automation did not start for this reqLine"

    We therefore cannot process these approved requisitions to PO's.

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Kindest Regards

    One Requistion Business Unit vs Number of Req BU's35.0
    Topic posted July 25, 2019 by Bhasakr Kolla, tagged Create Requisition, How-To, Setup 
    Title:
    One Requistion Business Unit vs Number of Req BU's
    Content:

    Here is our  Business Requirement

    Business has 10 Legal Entities, all the 10 Legal Entities are Raise Expense Purchase orders, No Inventory organizations under these legal entities.  Need to Create one Requisition Business unit / Procurement Business Unit and raise Purchase orders for these legal entities.

    Example: My LE Naming convention will be LE1, LE2, LE3 etc.

    Requisition  BU default Legal entity set up as LE1 and Default Deliver to inventory org at config Req. Business unit functions belongs to LE1

    Create a Expense Purchase order for LE1, the Purchase order created with sold to Legal entity on the PO is LE1, No issues.

    But i want to create a Purchase order for LE2 ( Expense PO), the sold to legal entity on the PO should be LE2, where as this is expense PO, the legal entity derives from Requisition business functions default delivery to inventory org.

    Business Requirement here is Legal entity on the Purchase should be not default legal entity, we need the actual legal entity belongs to the location, the location will not assosiated to any inventory org.  Accounting side, i can get the correct CCID, but LE information should be correctly populated.

     

    if i go with one REQ BU unit for each LE, i can meet the business requirement, but i don't want to create those REQ BU Units. Any creative solution?

     

    Thanks

    Approval Flow for Change Order

    Trying to write a different approval flow for the CO that doesn't match the PO
    Content:

    Hi, I am trying to write a different approval flow for Change Orders that does not match what is currently configured for Purchase Orders.

    I noticed CO approvals still come from the same list as POs (DocumentApproval) and use the same configurations.

    I tried several different configurations using PurchasingDocumentHeader.isChangeOrder and PurchasingDocumentHeader.agreementAmountChange all of which errored.

    Is configuring separate rules for change orders even possible? Has anyone done this successfully?

    Title:
    Change Order Cost Center manager Approval at line level
    Summary:
    Whenever there is change order happens against PO and changes done at line level the change order should follow newly added line cost center manager approval hierarchy not the existing lines
    Content:

    There is change order(XX)exist against PO (***) and which are having status either Incomplete/Pending Approvals or Approved.

    Requirement : If new line are been added in to change order(XX) then it should always follow the newly added lines (cost center) approval hiearachy. 

    Rules are written on amount changed at header level including the cost center numbers with respect cost center manger approvals and which is working fine.

    User needs that,if there is additonal line added in the change order then it should only follow the added lines cost center manager approvals not the exisiting lines cost center approvers.

    Is there any attributes where We can compare the cost center with existing lines cost center and build approval hieararchy around it.

    Can any one help on the same.

    Change the Inventory Organization in Open PO2

    Title:
    Change the Inventory Organization in Open PO
    Summary:
    Change the Inventory Organization in Open PO
    Content:

    Many customers want when they issue PO (Approved PO) they can edit it and update the receiving inventory organization. this is very common due to many reasons, one of them is; warehouse capacity issue. Currently, in Oracle Purchasing Fusion, we can't do it. Does anyone face the same issue? The workaround available and suggested by Oracle engineers is:

    split the schedule in the PO
    change the org to the new schedule
    have all quantity for the new org in this new schedule"

    This workaround is not correct because; you can't delete the old schedule or put zero in the quantity field. The only option here is to cancel the old schedule but you must go to the PO line quantity and double it to make it equal to the new schedule and the old canceled schedule quantities laugh
