    Desupport Notice for Oracle B2B Gateway in Procure-to-Pay...25.0
    Topic posted August 9, 2019 by Ivan PenaBronze Crown: 15,000+ Points, tagged Agreements, Orders, Payables, Supplier Communication 
    Title:
    Desupport Notice for Oracle B2B Gateway in Procure-to-Pay B2B Communications in Update 20A
    Summary:
    B2B Gateway desupported as communication method for Procure to Pay Flow in Update 20A
    Content:

    Present Behavior:

    When setting up a supplier site in Oracle Procurement Cloud, you have three options for the B2B communication method you want to use to exchange B2B messages with the supplier:

    • None
    • Oracle B2B Gateway - Deprecated
    • Collaboration Messaging Framework

    The Oracle B2B Gateway - Deprecated and Collaboration Messaging Framework achieve the same end result, but have different setup and management capabilities. Oracle Collaboration Messaging Framework Cloud provides better capabilities to set up and manage B2B messaging with trading partners, including features such as message configuration and the ability to reprocess messages.

    Future Behavior:

    Starting in Update 20A, the Oracle B2B Gateway – Deprecated option will be desupported, and it will be removed as an option in a later release. 

    Effect on Customers:

    New Oracle Procurement Cloud implementations must not use the Oracle B2B Gateway - Deprecated option. If you are an existing customers using this B2B communication method, you must migrate your setup to use Collaboration Messaging Framework for all supplier sites enabled for B2B messaging. Refer to the Oracle Supply Chain Collaboration and Visibility Cloud What’s New for Release 19B and the Migrate Oracle B2B Trading Partner Setup to Collaboration Messaging Framework white paper (Doc ID 2564389.1) for details about the migration process.

    Creating cXML Process PO Messaging WITHOUT OSN1

    Title:
    Creating cXML Process PO Messaging WITHOUT OSN
    Summary:
    Having an issue creating a PO through cXML messaging without OSN
    Content:

    Hello, hoping someone may be able to provide some clarity.  There is almost no documentation that I can find regarding setting up a punchout supplier WITHOUT OSN through a direct cXML punchout.  The catalog is no problem to set up.  However, the issue comes when attempting to create the PO.  

    1. My understanding from what documentation that I could find, is that you need to set it up as a B2B adapter.  Is that correct?

    2. Anytime I do that, subsequently setting up the Supplier Site using Collaboration Messaging Framework, I get the following error:

    <ns2:ErrorDescription xmlns:ns2="http://xmlns.oracle.com/apps/scm/cmk/collaborationMessaging/messageArchiveService/"> Machine Info: (cffar23100u28.usdc2.oraclecloud.com) Description: Agreement not found for trading partners: FromTP MyCompany, ToTP null with document type ProcessPurchaseOrder-10.1-OUTBOUND. </ns2:ErrorDescription>

    Why does it continaully send the To Trading Partner value as null?

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Need to restrict Buyer from creating a Purchase Order...Answered4

    Title:
    Need to restrict Buyer from creating a Purchase Order without Requisition.
    Content:

    Hi all,

    We have a requirement to restrict Buyer from creating a PO without requisition.

    In other way, we need to disable the "Create Order" task under the "Orders" section in task carousel under Purchase Orders Work Area. (Keeping rest of the tasks enabled)

    So can you guys suggest me which are the specific privileges/roles that needs to be removed from Buyer job role.

     

    I'm open to other suggestions or work around which might achieve this expectation.

    Note: Similar method to restrict tasks related to Agreements is also expected, any info on this would also help.

     

    Regards,

    Harshith E S

    PO : Confirming order checkbox25.0

    Title:
    PO : Confirming order checkbox
    Content:

    Hi,

    What is the significance of the Confirming order checkbox in PO.

    Does it have any impact of the PO communication to Supplier? ( apart from the ...don not duplicate message)

    I noticed that in one case, the PO is in 'Pending Supplier acknowledgment' status and has Confirming order checkbox selected. However, 2 notifications have gone to supplier.

    • Email notification requesting supplier acknowledgment 
    • Email informing supplier of the PO. One which is sent when PO moves to open status. Ideally this should not have been sent. Just wondering if the Confirming order checkbox in PO is causing this communication to be sent.

    Any thoughts?

    Regards,

    Niamath

    How to Include Back-to-back Sales Order Customer Information...2
    Topic posted September 9, 2019 by Boyuan ZhuGold Medal: 3,500+ Points, tagged Orders, Supplier Communication 
    Title:
    How to Include Back-to-back Sales Order Customer Information in the Purchase Order PDF
    Content:

    If you have a specialized back-to-back order process, you may need to communicate sales order customer information to your supplier. For example, you have asked your supplier to label packages with customer shipping information. You can configure the purchase order PDF data model and template to include customer information from the sales order. In the steps below, you will add the the customer name, address, and the scheduled arrival date to the purchase order data model.

    1. Create a copy of the Purchasing Order Data Model. Make the following edits to the draft and archive distribution data sets.  
    2. Add this statement to the SELECT clause:

      SalesOrder.PARTY_NAME CustomerName,

      SalesOrder.ADDRESS1 CustomerAddress1,

      SalesOrder.CITY CustomerCity,

      SalesOrder.STATE CustomerState,

      SalesOrder.SCHEDULE_ARRIVAL_DATE AS ScheduledArrivalDate

    3. Add this statement to the FROM clause:

      (SELECT ReqDist.DISTRIBUTION_ID, Customer.PARTY_NAME, CustomerLoc.ADDRESS1, CustomerLoc.CITY, CustomerLoc.STATE, FulfillLine.SCHEDULE_ARRIVAL_DATE FROM POR_REQ_DISTRIBUTIONS_ALL ReqDist, DOS_SUPPLY_TRACKING_LINE_DOCS TrackingDoc, DOS_SUPPLY_TRACKING_LINES TrackingLine, DOO_HEADERS_ALL SalesOrderHeader, HZ_PARTIES Customer, HZ_RELATIONSHIPS CustRel, DOO_FULFILL_LINES_ALL FulfillLine, HZ_PARTY_SITES CustomerSite, HZ_LOCATIONS CustomerLoc WHERE TrackingDoc.DOCUMENT_TYPE='ORA_PR' AND TrackingDoc.DOCUMENT_LINE_ID = ReqDist.REQUISITION_LINE_ID  AND TrackingLine.TRACKING_LINE_ID = TrackingDoc.TRACKING_LINE_ID AND TrackingDoc.ACTIVE_FLAG = 1 AND TrackingLine.SUPPLY_ORDER_REFERENCE_LINE_ID = FulfillLine.FULFILL_LINE_ID AND FulfillLine.HEADER_ID = SalesOrderHeader.HEADER_ID AND FulfillLine.SHIP_TO_PARTY_SITE_ID = CustomerSite.PARTY_SITE_ID AND CustomerSite.LOCATION_ID=CustomerLoc.LOCATION_ID AND SalesOrderHeader.SOLD_TO_PARTY_CONTACT_ID = CustRel.RELATIONSHIP_ID AND CustRel.SUBJECT_TYPE = 'PERSON' AND Customer.PARTY_ID = CustRel.SUBJECT_ID) SalesOrder

    4. Add this statement to the WHERE clause: 

      AND Distribution.REQ_DISTRIBUTION_ID = SalesOrder.DISTRIBUTION_ID(+)

    5. Make corresponding changes to add the attributes to the PDF template. If you are using Collaborative Messaging, you can also add the attributes to the CMK message transform.

    Cancel Purchase Order or Cancel Requisition First | Which...105.0
    Topic posted September 5, 2019 by Stacee PattersonRed Ribbon: 250+ Points, tagged Orders, Requisition Processing 
    Title:
    Cancel Purchase Order or Cancel Requisition First | Which Order is Recommended?
    Summary:
    Cancel Purchase Order or Cancel Requisition First | Which Order is Recommended?
    Content:

    What is the recommended order to cancel Purchase Orders and Requisitions?

    Our Buyer has canceled the PO (not the lines) and the Requestors try to cancel the Requisitions, but the Cancel Requisition option is grayed out under Actions button. When Requestors try to cancel the Requisition lines, they receive the error message "You cannot perform the action because the record is canceled or finally closed." The PO status = Canceled, but the Requisition status = Approved.

    Is there a preferred 'order' of events that should take place when trying to cancel both the PO and the Requisition? Will the Requisition lines ever show as canceled or will they continue to show approved even after the PO is fully canceled?

    Thanks for your response.

    PS - Our team has already reviewed this Oracle document: When Requestor Cancels The Requisition, The Related PO Will Be Auto Cancelled? (Doc ID 2268907.1)

    PO DFF API45.0

    Title:
    PO DFF API
    Summary:
    Is there an API available to update PO header/line/schedule level DFF's
    Content:

    Scenario: We're planning on building a PaaS solution to Auto Acknowledge PO's where the due date has been past. However, the client would like to record the method of acknowledgement on either PO header or schedule level DFF attribute for reporting and process improvement purposes.  Our technical team have understood that if the DFF's are updated, this would result in a change order - which is not desirable in this context.

    Is there an API/Service already available (that we missed) or one in the pipeline which would allow PO DFF's to be updated without it resulting in a change order.

    Approval workflow to a specific position1

    Title:
    Approval workflow to a specific position
    Summary:
    Requirement to send PO approvals based on amount and to a specific position
    Content:

    Hi,

    HR Departments have been setup, Positions and Job levels within the HR departments have been defined.

    Each HR department is a cost center

    Customer has the following requirement : Purchase order has different cost centers at line level. Now based on the cost center and PO header amount , the approval notification should be sent to a specific position

    e.g Dept A / Cost center A has 3 positions - Manager , Finance Manager , Senior Finance Manager

    Approval limits for the above positions are say 5000, 10000 and > 10000

    So if the PO has cost center A , and Amount is 8000 , approval notification should go the the position of Finance Manager ( there are users/persons linked to this position)

    So in effect this is not linked to the requester/buyer position/supervisory hierarchy , instead of routing to a specific worker , requirement is to route to a position

     

    Thanks
