    Email address at which an external payee receives remittance advice.



    Fax number at which an external payee receives remittance advice.




    Code/Name of the default payment method for an external payee.

    Step 1: Retrieve PayeeId for supplier, address or site level payment records

    PayeeId: This is a unique identifier for the set of payment attributes. It is auto generated individually when a supplier, address or site record is created. You need to use this value to identify a payment record to be updated. PayeeId can be retrieved using the external payee GET operation as shown below. 

    Note:    First you need to run the supplier GET operation to get SupplierId and SupplierPartyId.

    SupplierId will be used to retrieve supplier site and supplier address PayeeId.

    SupplierPartyId will be used to get PayeeId for Supplier payment record.

                 https://<hostname>:<port>/fscmRestApi/resources/latest/suppliers?q=Supplier LIKE <Supplier Name>

    • GET PayeeId for Supplier:

               Run the external payee GET operation to get the PayeeId for a supplier payment record


    • GET PayeeId for Supplier Address:

               Run the supplier address GET operation to get SupplierAddressId


              Run the external payee GET operation to get the PayeeId for a supplier address payment record



    • GET PayeeId for supplier site:

               Run the supplier site GET operation to get SupplierSiteId


               Run the external payee GET operation to get the PayeeId for a supplier site payment record



    Step 2: Update the payment record corresponding to the supplier, address or site using the PATCH operation

    PATCH operation URL: https://<hostname>:<port>/fscmRestApi/resources/latest/paymentsExternalPayees/<PayeeId>

    Sample PATCH Payload

    "PaymentReasonName": "143",
    "PaymentReasonCode": "BE_143",
    "SettlementPriority": "NORMAL",
    "DeliveryChannelCode": "CH_DTACHECK",
    "BankInstructionCodeOne": "NL_N",
    "BankInstructionCodeTwo": "NL_2",
    "ServiceLevelCode": "SDVA",
    "BankChargeBearerCode": "SHA"
    "DeliveryMethod": "EMAIL",

    Points to consider: 

    1.    Important to identify the attributes used in these payloads. As already detailed above:

    • PayeePartyIdentifier represents a supplier
    • PayeePartySiteIdentifier represents a supplier address.
    • SupplierSiteIdentifier represents a supplier site.
    • PayeeID represents a record that has payment information for a supplier, a supplier address or a supplier site.

    2.    As detailed above, a payee row is automatically created for suppliers, supplier addresses or supplier sites, whenever they are created. This implies that you can directly use PATCH operation to update payment attributes for suppliers, their addresses or sites.

    3.    If a user’s access to patch supplier site payment attributes is denied, you need to review the procurement BU access and maintain supplier site privilege for that user.

    Adding site assignments to a supplier site.5.0

    Adding site assignments to a supplier site.
    How do I successfully add site assignments to a supplier site

    A supplier site is always created in the context of a Procurement BU. This association allows Procurement BU to set terms, controls, and policies which govern how procure to pay transactions are executed between its Client BUs and the supplier.

    A supplier site can have one or more site assignments and site assignments indicate which Client BUs can transact with the site in question.

    Creating site assignments is a crucial step for suppliers to be able to transact with the buying organization. For example, a supplier cannot be specified on a purchase order if a site and site assignment in the correct Procurement BU and Client BU respectively are not defined on the supplier profile.

    It is mandatory to specify a Client BU on a site assignment as shown in the screenshot below:

    If for some reason your Client BU is not available to be selected, you will need to verify the following:

    1. A service provider - client relationship exists between the Procurement BU of the supplier site and the Client BU you want to use on the supplier site assignment.

    NOTE: To view the relationship, navigate to the Manage Business Unit task in Setup and Maintenance and look for the Client BU.  Access the Manage Service Providers action and confirm that the Procurement BU is listed under Procurement Service Providers as shown in the screenshots below.


    2. The Client BU has either a Requisitioning or Payables Invoicing business function.

    NOTE: To view the business functions assigned to the Client BU, access the Assign Business Functions action as shown in the screenshot below and verify that the Client BU has one of the functions listed above.


    3. The Procurement BU and Client BU are active.

    We are planning to roll-out our Supplier Portal to our top preferred/approved suppliers.  Has anyone created a Supplier Portal guide/manual that can be sent to suppliers for learning or training purposes?  Since the layout in Fusion is globally uniform I was hoping that I would not have to start from scratch on developing the guide?  Would any customers be willing to share their guide or portions of their guide?

    Masking Supplier Tax Payer ID
    We would want to mask the Supplier Taxpayer ID across Organization types



    The business would want to have their suppliers tax payer id masked, but it is only possible to mask if the Organization type is "Individual". Please refer the below metalink. Masking Supplier Tax Identifiers PII Data (Doc ID 2330050.1)

    My question is if the supplier renders a different kind of service irrespective of the tax organization type, then is it possible to mask the Taxpayer ID across suppliers? Please let me know if you have any workaround for the same.

    Displaying Unmasked Bank Account
    When Maintaining Bank Accounts we need to see the full Bank Account number

    There are occasions when our Account Payable's manager need to see the full bank account number to ensure we are creating duplicates or allocating the wrong Bank Account to a Supplier.

    Is there a way within Fusion where the full Bank Account Number (I.e. 12345678, not xxxx5678) can be displayed.?

    Taxpayer ID on address level2
    Topic posted October 21, 2019 by Sem van Donk, tagged Supplier Creation, Supplier Profile Management, Supplier Registration, White Paper 
    Taxpayer ID on address level
    Taxpayer ID on address level

    Hi Community,

    We are having some issues with storing the Taxpayer ID which is required for certain reports of tax authorities on the profile level, and would like to know if there are users with experience where different addresses in the supplier model have their own Taxpayer ID. 

    The situation:

    We are buying products at different companies throughout Europe. Some organizations that we do business with have multiple locations, for example 1 per country, while operating in 3 different countries. For these locations, the supplier makes use of different VAT registration and do business with the particular business unit (from our side) in the corresponding countries (Supplier X, address NL --> business unit NL). From our perspective, as a client of this specific supplier operating in three countries, we see the different supplier locations as 1 main supplier, with whom, as a global company we do business with, meaning price agreements on a global scale and specific services services, eventhough this supplier has different registrations and tax details for the various locations. Long story short, to be able to help the procurement department, we would like to be able to see in one glimpse, what we, eventhough from different business units, buy as a company from this supplier. Which is why we want to store the different locations/addresses underneath one supplier profile. 

    In the below overview you see a table of the sketched situation;



    Taxpayer ID


    VAT-number (connected to address)



    Company X


    Address NL


    Procurement BU from NL






    Procurement BU from BE


    Address PL


    Procurement BU from PL



    Address ESP


    Procurement BU from ES


    Now the problem arises, for the supplier data we need to provide in the system, we have the ability to store tax related matters on different levels. However, not all tax details can be stored everywhere, we have VAT registrations on Address level (per location) and Taxpayer ID is forced to profile level (1 for all locations) for the SII VAT filling report in Spain. 


    The case:

    For the, in the table above, mentioned supplier, the Spanish tax authorities wants us to provide a different tax ID next to the existing VAT registration in the VAT filing, or near real time VAT reporting (SII). In Oracle we can enable this reporting and filing by filling the Taxpayer ID (only possible on profile level for SII reporting as per an oracle whitepaper If this would be a single requirement from only Spain, storing this Taxpayer ID on profile level would not be an issue. However, if in the given example, Polish tax authorities are going to raise the same tax requirement, we are not able to store this on the profile level of the same supplier (addresses in Poland and also Spain) as there will already be a Tax Payer ID stored.

    We can ofcourse create seperate suppliers for the countries in which we forsee any kind of potential Taxpayer ID requirement arising, however, due to reporting of spend at grouped suppliers, we do not want to do so. Seperating a supplier based on country to be able to store the Taxpayer ID on profile level will make the business reporting for total spend a lot more cumbersome and time consuming.

    Is there anyone with a simular issue, and has a solution on how to handle this, ideally we would like to store the Taxpayer ID on address level, where VAT registrations are stored as well, at the moment, for the SII reporting, this is not possible as mentioned here; (attached) And as confirmed by Oracle support in a Service Request.
