    Hello, 

     

    In our environment, PRs are automatically created into Fusion Procurement from third party system. We have a requirement where we want to automatically club PRs into one PO based on any unique identification within the PRs which could be PR description, Additional information at PR etc. 

    In other words, we want to automate 'Add to document' step based on certain crieteria.

    Hi team,

    1. Our business scenario involves purchasing documents (can be Requisitions in Self-Service Procurement or Purchase Orders in Purchasing) which are in Pending Approval status and need to be approved
    1. In order to Approve these POs and/or Requisitions, partner is suggesting to receive an update from MAXIMO, to specifically update a field (flexfield – called “Should be Approved?”). All  POs would originally have default value of NO, and Maximo would update this Flexfield with value the values Yes or No.
    1. If flexfield is updated with Yes, an approval rule will make that the PO is approved (status should change from Pending Approval to Approved). Otherwise, if flexfield remains with No, purchasing document will still be Pending Approval
    1. In order to update a flexfield on Requisitions, we evaluated web service PurchaseRequestService but a change operation requires that the Requisition has associated a Purchase Order, while we need to update a Requisition in Pending Approval status, before is approved and related to a Purchase Order
    1. In case of Purchase Order, we evaluated web service PurchaseOrderService, however operation changePurchaseOrder cannot update orders with Pending Approval status, this service only can update orders with Open status (approved). So it seems is not an option either.

    Question:

    Looking for ideas to update a Requisition or Purchase Order in Pending Approval status. Is there any other option or function that could allow this?  Do you visualize other option?

    Thank you
