    19D Known Issue: Supplier and currency information don't default from requisition onto document builder
    Content:

    Issue

    In the Process Requisition page, the Supplier, Supplier Site, and Currency fields don't default from the requisition line onto the new document when you add a requisition to the Document Builder. This results in an error when you click Create in the Add to Document Builder dialog box.

    Resolution


    To resolve the issue, follow one of these solutions

    • In the Add to Document Builder dialog box, change the Type to Existing Order and then change it back to New Order.
    • In the Process Requisition page, do these steps:
      1. Click Add to Document Builder.
      2. In the Add to Document Builder dialog box, click Cancel.
      3. Click Add to Document Builder.
    • In the Add to Document Builder dialog box, select the values manually for the Style, Supplier, Supplier Site, and Currency fields, and click OK.
    • In the Create Procurement Agents page, change access to either Full or Modify for the Manage Purchase Orders action.

    Issue is fixed in Release 19D - January maintenance pack. Customers who can't wait until January maintenance pack release can request a cumulative weekly bundle to be applied earlier. The screenshot below illustrates the issue.  Refer to Doc ID 2611394.1  for more details.

    Ability to auto close requisitions/Purchase orders which are more than 1 year old
    Content:

    Hi All,

    I would want to know if there is any mechanism to auto close Purchase orders/Requisitions which are more than 1 year old. We tried to explore the ESS Job :- Close schedules in Worksheet. But that requires more of a manual activitity like we need to run the program based on inactivity period, get the data in excel sheet, change the action to close and then upload. Another disadvantage with the ESS job is that it brings in all the PO's even closed for invoicing and closed for receiving.

    We want to only auto close Open PO's which are not received and invoiced and more than a year old. We are exploring the following options

    1. Ability to disable the Edit button on Requisition/PO if they are more than 365 days old

    2. Ability to Auto close using any program. Currently we have only close PO schedules in worksheet

    3. Ability to reject the PO for any changes if the PO is more than 365 days old through workflow. Do we have the attribute requisition creation date or PO creation date as workflow attributes?

    Any of the above 3 can solve our purpose

    I do NOT find any where to capture Notes on approved Purchase Order .DO NOT WANT TO REVISE PO.
    Customer is looking for a place holder to capture misllaneous notes once PO , once it is approved.
    Is this true?
    What is the workaround for this? I am sure other customer would also be facing this issue? How other customer is handling this?

    Access to Procurement/Purchasing Subject Area & Purchasing Related Reports
    Summary:
    User without Buyer role are unable to Access Procurement Subject Area and Procurement Related Reports, Also they are unable to Create New Analysis
    Content:

    Client is live with Oracle Purchasing cloud and users have been creating PO on the Prod Instance.

    However there are few users who doesn't have the Buyer License (Buyer Role is not assigned) and don't have access to create and manage Purchase Order but still wants to review (view only access) for the Purchase order Data via Reports. 
     

    Client has additionally procured license for B84576 - Oracle Fusion Transactional Business Intelligence Cloud Service - Hosted Name, with an understanding that this will grant access to the users for BI Reports. 

    We have created a custom BI Role, and have added the following Privileges to the same: 
    BI Consumer Role 
    And have assigned the custom role to above listed users. 

    These users are unable to create a New Analysis (OTBI report) under the BI Page.

     
    Also for any existing OTBI Report, when the open the same, they are getting error as: 
    No Results 
    The specified criteria didn't result in any data. 

    However the same report is fetch data for other users, who are having Buyer role assigned. 

    Please advice, if in addition to creation of Custom Role for Oracle Fusion Transactional Business Intelligence Cloud Service, any other steps needs to be performed.

    Adding PO line from catalog with different BPA and Supplier
    Summary:
    Need to fully understand why the system allow to add new PO line from catalog with different BPA and Supplier.
    Content:

    Hi Gurus,

    Need your help for us to fully understand if the below scenario is a bug or what as we're not comfortable on how the system current functionality.

    So our scenario is, We have an existing PO having BPA = X and under Supplier = X, then as we all know we can add new line from a Catalog. Then we add new line from catalog having BPA =Y and Supplier = Y. The system allow us to completely process this PO.

     If the above functionality is allowed:

    1. Does the new added line from catalog with different supplier will now be under the supplier of the PO that we have? 

    2. Does it bypass the Agreement and Supplier originally setup for that added item catalog?

    Please help to explain.

    Appreciate your immediate inputs and help.

    Thanks in advance

    Haydee
