    Hello Niamath,

    Thank you for your response.

    I have one doubt here. As FOB, itself is one of the INCOTERM codes how can we map other Incoterms in FOB and what is the nature of it's usage? Does it work just as a placeholder or it has some accounting impact also?

    Regards,

    Looks like I figured it out -- I didn't enable the offering Approve Internal Changes on Supplier Bank Accounts.

  • Britta Nissl

    Attached I am adding a bank account to an existing supplier. Let me know if you need anything additional.

    Hi Britta,

    The first screenshot applies to change requests initiated by supplier users. As you correctly stated, the new functionality allows changes made by internal users (such as supplier managers or supplier administrators) to be submitted for approval.

    Can you share a screenshot of the screen after submitting the changes for approval?

    Thanks,

    Aishwarya

    The Sandbox publish is not an option in this phase, I am setting this up for demo purpose (proof of concept).

    that is why I want the DFF to be deployed to Sandbox also. Having them on instance could cause problems with the client if they want to test something else regarding Suppliers.

  • Marko Knežević

    1. The steps are: Setup and Maintenance => Manage Supplier Descriptive Flexfields => POZ_SUPPLIERS => Action menu => Deploy to Sandbox (warning message, click ok) and the result is that the DFF Deployment status is Deployed instead Deployed to Sandbox.

    I have already described them in my first post (Step 2)

    2. This is correct. I can’t see the DFF Context Segments on the UI. Tried to apply the Mode blank, Global and Context but nothing has changed.

    can anyone try this DFF setup on other release than 19A, since my instance and demo are both19A? Could this be a problem/bug for 19A?

    Trying to understand the issue here:

    1. You are not able to deploy the DFFs to a sandbox, right? If so, can you please share the steps you are taking to deploy the DFF to a sandbox?

    2. You are not able to make context segment DFF visible on the UI? If so, can you try to change the value of Mode to Context (screen shot 3) and apply. Verify if you see the value now? If you still do not, can you save the change like this and publish the sandbox and verify if you are able to see the context DFF now?

    Is there anything else that I am missing?

    Thanks,

    Piyush

    I have attached a Word document describing my problem and also some screenshots for DFF Setup and the Edit Pages => Structure => Component Properties descriptiveFlexfield tabs.

    Hello Piyush,

    The DFF deploy to sandbox should work, shouldn't it?
    https://docs.oracle.com/en/cloud/saas/applications-common/19a/oaext/flexfields.html#OAEXT224185

    Unfortunately it doesn't work on our instance and on demo.oracle.com too.
    I will post the screenshots tomorrow.

    FYI, I have tested with Global DFFs only, they are visible on UI, but Contex isn't for some strange reason.
    But also just like Context, they are not deployed to Sandbox, no matter what type of deployment I choose they are always deployed to the instance...

    Thank you for your help.

  • Piyush Singh

    Deploying DFFs does not require user to be in a sandbox. Once you have deployed the DFFs, you need to show the Additional Information region in the suppliers UI that the DFFs belong to. Showing this region in suppliers UI is done through page composer for which you need to be in a sandbox and once you are done with the change (to show the region), you need to publish the sandbox.

    Following this if you still are not able to get the DFFs visible, please share screen shots of all the steps you took.

    Thanks,

    Wrishin,

    Oracle suggests the use of FOB field for incoterms. Please refer below note.

    Hi Marko,

    The validations on duplicate is not across attributes i.e. duplicate for TRN will be validated only against existing TRNs and not against D-U-N-S number and Taxpayer ID.

    Regarding the notification to be sent after the supplier is created, please go ahead and share that as an idea and we will evaluate it further.

    Do let us know if you still have any question unanswered.

    Thanks,

    Piyush

    Hi Subba,

    We are already evaluating the issue you have raised about the user leaving the organization. For further issues, can we suggest you to open a service request?

    Thanks,

    Piyush

  • Subbarao Medicharla

    Yes, You are right, Martijin.

    Hi Shivani,

    Now our internal audit team question is what will happen if that user quits the organization. How the process will run?

    What happens if scheduled process is cancelled? 

    I strongly believe that  Process initiated by a random user is not a good practice. The user would stop the process thinking that she inadvertantly initiated it.

    Can you please answer the above questions?

    Thanks

    Subba
