    Change Order Cost Center manager Approval at line level
    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

    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.

    B2B PO Export using Collabration Message framework


    I am trying to setup B2B Collaboration messaging using a service provider to send Purchase Order. Jaggaer is our middleware vendor. I am using web service provided by Jagger however they mentioned that they don’t any authentication on webservice and no userid and password should be passed. When I configure a service provider in "Manage Collaboration Messaging Service Providers" under tools -> Collaboration Messaging without a userid and password, I am getting error Userid is required. Please see attached screenshot for my setup and error message.

    Any idea on how i can deal with this situation?

    19D Update Account and Budget Date on Budgetary-Controlled...35.0

    19D Update Account and Budget Date on Budgetary-Controlled Open Purchase Orders

    We are testing out the changes for the 19D upgrade and trying to confirm what specifically this change is supposed to make. We've been able to make changes to the line or distributions prior to this, so we're not exactly sure what we're looking at. The functional users and I have tested and don't find any visible difference or option. I'm including the description and link below. Thanks!


    Upgrade notes:

    Change account and budget date on open purchase orders, even if subject to budgetary control. You can make the changes if there are no project references on the purchase order distributions. The necessary funds checks and adjustments to funds reservations and encumbrance accounting when applicable are handled based on the updated information. This is done by automatically liquidating funds reserved against the old account and budget date, and reserving funds to the new account and budget date.

    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 
    One Requistion Business Unit vs Number of Req BU's

    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?

    Approved Supplier List (ASL)


    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.

    Modify DFF Display Type
    Is is possible to change the Display Type of a Descriptive Flexfield from a List of Values to a Text Box?

    We have an existing Purchase Order Distributions DFF that was configured with a Display Property of  List of Values with a Validation Value Set.  Due to a change in business process, the business owners would like to change this DFF to be a Text Box without a List of Values associated with it.  Is it possible to modify the DFF Segment Value Set and Display Properties to be a Text Box?

    Current Configuration screen shots are included for reference.

    Can we use project financials mapping set in procurement...1

    Can we use project financials mapping set in procurement transaction account builder?
    Can we use project financials mapping set in procurement transaction account builder?

    Hi All,

    Here is the scenario: We already have modified the SLA rules in Project Financial management and to derive one of the segment we are using a mapping set. The input source of the mapping set is 'Project descriptive flexfied 2' at project header.

    Now, we are implementing Procurement where we will create project based purchase orders and accordingly need to derive PO charge account using project attributes in transaction account builder (TAB). Following are my questions:

    1. Can I use the same account rule in TAB that are already defined in Project Financials? I see many of them are available in drop down in TAB PO charge account. However when I select them and tries to build account, it gives error.

    2. Assuming I will have to setup account rules within in Purchasing application to be used in TAB, can I use the same mapping set which we already defined in Project Financials? In TAB also, my requirement is to derive one of the segment using 'Project descriptive flexfied 2' at project header. My observation is that I don't see any mapping set which in not defined within Purchasing application.

    Please clarify for me. Appreciate your help.
