    Hello People,

    Is there a way to migrate approval rules from one instance to other.?

    Some notes talk about SOA Composer, not sure how it works for SaaS.

    Approved Supplier List (ASL)
    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.

    Auto receipt PO below a set value15.0

    Auto receipt PO below a set value
    Is it possible to create a rule for this

    Is it possible to create a rule/s in Oracle Fusion that would automatically receipt ALL lines on a purchase order IF the overall value is below a certain amount?

    We have 3 way matching set up BUT our organisation struggles with PO's not being receipted by the requester (this delaying payment to the supplier etc.)

    We would like to know if there is a way to for example auto receipt ALL the lines on a PO where the total value of that PO is £100.00 or less.

    Auto-population of need-by/promise date on PR/PO based on...15.0

    Auto-population of need-by/promise date on PR/PO based on Lead time setup for an item corresponding to ship-to location
    Auto-population of need-by/promise date on PR/PO based on Lead time setup for an item corresponding to ship-to location


    Please let me know if there is any workaround or custom solution to achieve the below requirements in Oracle Purchasing Cloud.

    Scenario: Auto-population of need-by/promise date on PR/PO based on Lead time setup for an item corresponding to ship-to location

    Use Cases

    1. Manual Purchase requisition: Requestor selects the ship-to location and Catalogue item, the system automatically populates the need-by date as <SysDate+Lead Time>. This data flows to the PO as Promise Date
    2. Min-Max Planning based Purchase Requisitions: Min-Max planning is run at Org/Sub Inventory level which automatically populates the need-by date as <SysDate+Lead Time>. This data flows to the PO as Promise Date

    As-Is Business Process: Client maintains BPA for each catalogue item with the supplier but doesn’t use ship-to location on the BPA. Lead time is separately managed in custom form for each Item-Ship-to combination. When the user enters PR or min-max planning triggers a PR, customization calculated the need-by date as <SysDate+Lead Time> (as maintained in the mentioned custom form), and populates on PR. This need-by date flows to the PO as the promised date. Buyer can override this date if there are concerns with the promise date from the supplier side.


    Why is it critical:

    1. To make sure the right expectations are set up with the requestor about the availability of purchases
    2. To make sure inventory specialists sees correct Supply/Demand picture as promise date is used as supply cut-off date. This helps in avoiding the inventory stock-out situations
    3. To enforce the SLA agreements with vendors, and vendor’s performance can be measured
    4. Extra work to override the populated promise date which will be sysdate if this solution is not in place. Separate communication needs to happen to change this as per SLA agreement which is extra work


    1. Show end user what is the lead time for that ship-to location for the item?
    2. Auto-populate <SysDate + Lead time> as the promise date on PR/PO. This should be applicable to both manual as well as planning (Min-max) based PR
    3. Supply and Demand report should be able to use the Lead time while calculating the demand/supply based on the cut-off date
    4. Ability to see/review updates on PO promise data by supplier

    Automatic Tax Calculation on PO
    Automatically calculate tax on Purchase Order lines based on the Ship-to location

    We are on Oracle Fusion Release 12

    Our requirement is to automatically calculate the tax (eg sales tax, VAT, GST, etc) on Purchase Order (Lines) based on the ship-to location. There is one tax rate for UK and another for Australia but for USA the tax rate changes as per the ship-to location. How can we configure Oracle so that it calculates the tax automatically.

    We do not use inventory items.

    Automatically create CPA from Enterprise Contract15.0
    Topic posted June 13, 2019 by Divya GangadharanRed Ribbon: 250+ Points, tagged How-To, Setup 
    Automatically create CPA from Enterprise Contract


    I am aware that there is a possibility to autocreate CPA from Procurement Contracts (Cloud Procurement)

    But, we have a requirement where the CPAs are created in PRC BU 'A' (Service Provider ), and controls region on the CPA should list the available Requisition BUs (eg: REQ BU 'B') that can use this supplier agreement.

    The needed service provider relp setup exists and corresponding BU specific business functions are also enabled.

    While testing this , we have observed that the CPA is autocreated but the controls region is not populated.

    Would anyone have an idea of what could be causing this and is there a way to address this issue.

    Automatically updating FINAL CLOSE status for a PO
    Automatically updating FINAL CLOSE status for a PO


    Although the PO status gets updated automatically to CLOSE once full PO is received and invoiced however our requirement is the the PO should be automatically changed to final close status either immediately along with the close status or lets say after certain duration which we should define. 

    Is it possible? is there any work around?

    B2B PO Communication
    Can not configure B2B PO communication


    I've been trying to get my approved PO's sent out through B2B communication and I've done all the setup as mentioned on this DOC ID: https://support.oracle.com/epmos/faces/DocumentDisplay?id=1995064.1

    However, they only talk about integration with OSN. I want to simply send the file by e-mail or store it as a file on a location. But those setups are not covered. For example for email protocol, it asks me my email id and host name, I have no idea what to fill in. For File protocol it simply asks for a folder.

    But for both protocols I'm getting the same error:

    Transport error: [MsgCannotBeSent] SMTP message cannot be sent.

    Anyone who has experience with this? I've searched forums and communities but haven't found anything. My next step will be an SR.
