    Title:
    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...3

    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

    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.

    Anil

    We have a requirement to upload attachments to a Requisition. Based on the Oracle note (Doc ID 2261597.1), we attempted uploading attachments to Requisition using the ERP Object Attachment Service.

    We used UploadAttachment operation of the ErpObjectAttachmentSoap web service to add attachments to the requisitions. PFA request and response payloads in this context. We are running into errors and the attachment upload is not successful. Any pointers to help resolve the issue will be much appreciated.

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

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

    Hi,

    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

    Requirements:

    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
