    'Withdrawn: Approve Purchase Order' email...2

    'Withdrawn: Approve Purchase Order' email notifications
    I am seeking guidance on how to disable these notifications coming through to approval group members.

    We have recently upgraded to Oracle Fusion R13 (18B). Members of the approval group for purchase orders are now receiving an FYI type email notification when another member of the group approves a PO. The email only comes through 3 x days AFTER the PO was originally approved. These notifications are clogging up our email accounts and we would like to disable.

    Can anybody confirm the steps I need to undertake to stop this notification from being actioned? I do not wish to affect any other notifications that are set up (we do not have notifications set up to inform of PO approval however).

    I believe the task might be 'DocumentApproval'. Within the 'Notifications' tab, I can see that 'Enable Reminder' is checked and the frequency is set as every 3 x days. This would correspond to when we receive these notifications compared to when the PO was approved. Would simply un-ticking this box have the desired effect?

    Many thanks


    Oracle Fusion R13 (version 18B)

    Send Purchasing Document Attachments as Separate Files
    Send Purchasing Document Attachments as Separate Files


    We are in R13 -17D and  I see that there is Bug fix - Bug 22549411 : FUNCTIONALITY TO SEND ALL PO WITH ATTACHMENTS IN NON ZIP FORMAT.

    But When we tested we see that the PO email sent to suppliers are still going in zipped format. Is there any additional configuration to turn this functionality ?

    Update ERP POs in pending status when approval from IBM...2

    Update ERP POs in pending status when approval from IBM Maximo sends notification
    Customer requirements need Maximo to do many validations agains a maintenance to asset and send approval notification to Oracle ERP Cloud POs, in order to release the approval.

    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.


    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
