    Good Day Bilal,

    You do not require supplier portal to register for an supplier (External Registration), you just need to send the url from "Setup and Maintenance > Purchasing > Procurement Foundation  > Configure Procurement Business Function > "Prospective Supplier Registration URL" or "Spend Authorized Supplier Registration URL"..

    Supplier can open the link at his end which will open a web page and he can fill in the details.


    Thanks and Regards

    Hi Piyush

    When you say that a legal can be a supplier to other legal entity, do you mean that the legal entities of your organizations are being defined as suppliers?

    We do need  to add  few of our Legal Entities to Supplier table those already have TRN in their registration, now not able to use the same TRN used in LE Registration while doing Supplier Creation if we check Option allow duplicate TRN is off. We don't want to check allow duplicates on to avoid Duplication in Supplier table.

    If these are legal entities, do they not have their own TRNs?

    Yes all LE have their own TRNs and need to use the Same TRN in Supplier Creation, but we don't have Duplication inside Supplier (third party)

    If one acts as supplier to other, is the transaction done through end to end Procure to Pay cycle including invoicing as well as payment?

    Yes, not only for P2P and for other transactions too

    Hi Joao,

    Hi Sandeep,

    Can you be more specific like which attributes are you referring to? Supplier profile attributes?



  • Piyush Singh

    Thanks for your reply Judy.

    Hi Mukund,

    To add to Judy's reply, you can achieve this using supplier import process where you are allowed to enter supplier number in the supplier import template and the same will be assigned to the supplier when created.

    What are the ways in which supplier relationship can be maintained? Currently there is option of having potential and spend authorized suppliers in the system. What if the business also includes and considers other stages, like an extended trial period, which considers a lot of control factors like PO, material quality, rate and date. What are the business practices around this, and how can custom needs be catered to at the time of supplier onboarding.

    What are the ways to streamline End to End Vendor Onboarding process ? Suppliers having access to Supplier Portal tend to make lot of mistakes while registering themselves on the isupplier portal; what are the ways to minimize/reduce such issues apart from training them ? What are the best industry practices to perform Approvals on supplier onboarding by leveraging the workflows present in oracle cloud (Procurement/Finance Department Approvals) ? Is there a way to let a group of people or a user know that a given supplier registration has been completed and new requisition/po's can be issued for that particular supplier ?

    In a regulated environment we don't just need suppliers to register in the cloud but to also provide details through questionnaires for us to assess their businesses to a greater extent before they can be approved to do business. What best practice approaches can you share for this level of onboarding.

    FYI The questionnaires are being managed through the SQM module as initiatives. 

  • Judy Hamner

    Yes - we did exactly that.  We used the legacy system supplier numbers during conversion and then allowed the numbering to start in the cloud using a new paradigm so we could easily identify converted vs. newly created suppliers.  

    e.g. our legacy system suppliers started with 000xxxxxx.  our new suppliers created in the cloud start with 100xxxxx.
