    Title:
    Cannot Upload Descriptive Flex Field value into Oracle Using FBDI template.
    Summary:
    When trying to import the FBDI template for items import, the DFF value is not getting populated in Oracle.
    Content:

    We enabled a DFF on the item level and we wanted to update this field while we are importing items into the system. The DFF is Attribute6, so we used the same Attribute6 in FBDI template also and tried to import it, every filed is getting imported except the DFF value.

    So can anyone please let me know what is we missing here?

    Content:

    Hi Experts,

    This questions is precisely from Procurement and Finance FBDI  and ADDFi prospective.

    Is there a predefined limit for number of records (data) that we can use in FBDI and ADFDi while we upload the data using spreadsheet?  If yes, do we have any standard oracle document around this indicates this information?

    Also, is there a setup hosted by Oracle that we can increase or decrease this limit ?

    Appreciate your help !!!

    Regards,

    Query - Item Grouping Behaviour - Purchasing Setup6

    Query - Item Grouping Behaviour - Purchasing Setup
    Summary:
    Query - Item Grouping Behaviour - Definition and Reference Org
    Content:

    Hi

    I'm using Release 19A.  We are currently using Procurement module i.e. Self Service procurement  (Smart forms to raise Requsitions). We are not using Inventory and we do not have Items. 

    We define the Functional Area Catalog (Purchasing) and will assign the leaf level category(Purchasing Category) to the Catalog.

    I had a query on the Inventory Org setup.

    1) Manage Item Organisation (task) -  I have defined a Master Org (Item Grouping = 'Definition Org')

    2) We have multiple Inventory Orgs under the BU. So when I define the Inventory Org (Item grouping is defaulted to 'Reference Org') and when I save the data I get a message saying "Do you want to assign all Items in the Definition Org to the Reference Org.

    Should I click Yes or No. Does it really matter because I'm not going to use Inventory module to store items?

    On point2 above can I define the Inventory Org as "Definition Org" or do I have to define it as 'Reference Org' - What is the best practise for my scenario given that I am not going to use Items, but just Purchasing categories defined in the Functional Area Catalog (Purchasing)

     

    Kind regards

    Felix

    Summary:
    Reaching out to understand if the the EBS functionality titled Project Procurement is available in the Cloud ERP or is on the roadmap?
    Content:

    For reference, this is the link to comparable Project Procurement functionality in EBS.  https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E26401_01/doc.122/e79124/toc.htm

    To clarify, this has nothing to do with a financial plan, costing or accounting.  It is a pure execution plan that ties to together everything from the Requisition, Sourcing, Contracting and Transactional Procurement from a Buyer POV.  It shows allows them to plan when they need to start a sourcing negotiation, complete the award and contracting by a certain date, create and release PO's, etc.  Purely execution based.  

    Thanks.

    Approved Supplier List (ASL)
    Content:

    Hi,

    We have a requirement to restrict any purchasing (Req/Orders) for specific suppliers (Blacklisted).

    The approved supplier list functionality doesn't allow any restriction on Order creation when category and supplier from ASL is used.

    There are no Inventory items for now only categories.

    Also, i'm unable to find the source document - Blanket Purchase Agreements, there is only Contract Purchase Agreement in the drop down list under ASL source documents.The Generate Approved supplier list also doesn't show any agreement numbers.

    Please share if you have come across customers with similar requirement.

    Many thanks.

    Summary:
    Is there a guideline on how to we decide between B2B Gateway and Oracle Supplier Network to send cxml files to the supplier
    Content:

    For my punchouts -- Is there a high level guideline as to when do I choose to setup a B2B Gateway and when to setup the Oracle Supplier Network inorder to send my cxml file for the Purchase order to my supplier?

    I saw the process for both are equally simple or complex -- so what should be my criteria in choose one over the other.

    NOTE: We are not using the Supplier Portal -- Incase this is a qualifying criteria to choose OSN.

    Any input experts?
