    Approve supplier bank account changes
    Content:

    Is it possible to place a supplier on payment hold when any changes to nominated fileds have been made. These might be bank account details, payee name, payment method etc.

    If a hold is not possible can we utilise the audit facilities to perhaps drive mesaging to manage this. Perhapos by using API's thought ICS to set a hold flag on the supplier after a trigger from teh audit table?

    Any ideas welcome

    We are on R12 but moving to R13.

    Enabling Supplier Audit HistoryAnswered75.0

    Title:
    Enabling Supplier Audit History
    Summary:
    Tips for enabling Supplier Audit History
    Content:

    Supplier Audit History allows tracking and reporting of changes made to supplier profile information to support internal audit controls and governance as well as external regulatory compliance such as SOX.

    Here are some tips that will allow you to set up this feature correctly and leverage everything it has to offer:

    • Ensure attributes that need to be audited have been enabled for audit tracking using the Manage Audit Policies task as shown in the screenshot below. Changes to an attribute will be tracked only if it is enabled for audit. Refer to the steps listed below explaining how attributes can be enabled for audit.
    • Ensure that the business object to be audited is selected in addition to its individual attributes.
    • Payments information i.e. Payment Methods, Bank Accounts and Payment Attributes can be specified for a supplier, its addresses and sites. Corresponding attributes can be enabled for audit using one of the three business objects available: Supplier Payment Methods, Supplier Bank Accounts and Supplier Payment Attributes. Enabling an attribute that belongs to these business objects will track changes made to the attribute at all three levels: supplier, address and site.
    • Changes made to audit setup are prospective and not retrospective. Consequently, for an attribute which has not been previously enabled for audit, any changes made to it prior to enabling it for audit will not be tracked. To optimize performance only enable attributes that need to be tracked.

    image2018-2-20%2016%3A0%3A19.png?version=1&modificationDate=1519171219000&api=v2

    Following steps will guide you to setup audit tracking on the list of supplier profile attributes:

    1. Access the Setup and Maintenance workarea and look for the Manage Audit Policies task.
    2. On the Mange Audit Policies page, set the Audit Level as Auditing and take the Configure Business Object Attributes action.
    3. On the Configure Business Object Attributes page, select Procurement as the product.
    4. Select the appropriate object in the Objects tree table. This corresponds to the object to which the attribute you want audited belongs. For example, if you want to track changes to Alternate Name of a supplier, you should select the Supplier object. Likewise if you want to audit the Address Name, you should select the Supplier Addresses object.
    5. After selecting the object, take the Create action available under the Audited Attributes section on the right. A list of attributes that can be tracked using audit will be made available to you.
    6. Select the attributes that need to be audited. This will allow any changes made to these attributes to be tracked and reported.
    7. Take the Save the Close action.

    Refer to the following for more details on what the Supplier Audit feature offers:
