    What is the purpose of the Supplier Match Batch Feature? How to utilize this feature?

    Under Define Supplier Matching > Manage Enterprise Data Quality Matching Configurations, what is the purpose of Batch: Match Configuration Parameters?

    This question arose, because after following the Oracle setup documentation (all steps of Implementing-Procurement.pdf > Enabling Supplier Match: Explained), I obtained results after defining Real-Time Match Configuration Parameters, BUT I do not know where in the system the Batch Match Configuration Parameters are utilized. Would it be a scheduled process that runs?

     

    The Oracle Implementing Procurement manual does not provide any detail about the purpose of the Batch feature. I have not been able to find additional insight anywhere else.

     

    Thanks, Catherine

    Contact Duplicate Identification and Address Duplicate...35.0

    Title:
    Contact Duplicate Identification and Address Duplicate Identification
    Summary:
    What is the purpose of "Contact Duplicate Identification" or "Address Duplicate Identification" ?
    Content:

    Under Define Supplier Matching > Manage Enterprise Data Quality Matching Configurations, what is the purpose of "Contact Duplicate Identification" or "Address Duplicate Identification" ?

    This question arose, because after following the Oracle setup documentation (all steps of Implementing-Procurement.pdf > Enabling Supplier Match: Explained), I obtained results after setup of 'Account Duplicate Identification' BUT no results after setup for 'Contact Duplicate Identification' or 'Address Duplicate Identification'. The 'Account Duplicate Identification' setup provided results when testing in the system or testing Actions > Review Configuration Results.

     

    My results are in a system with multiple suppliers, duplicate information within multiple supplier records, and duplicate information within one supplier record.

     

    The Oracle Implementing Procurement manual does not provide any detail about the purpose of "Contact Duplicate Identification" or "Address Duplicate Identification". I have not been able to find additional insight anywhere else.

     

    Thanks, Catherine

    Adding site assignments to a supplier site.5.0
    Topic posted September 30, 2019 by Aishwarya PawarGold Medal: 3,500+ Points, tagged How-To, Supplier Profile Management 
    Title:
    Adding site assignments to a supplier site.
    Summary:
    How do I successfully add site assignments to a supplier site
    Content:

    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.

    Functionality to see Approval flow of a Promoted Supplier who is already Approved.
    Content:

    Hi all,

    Is there any path/functionality to view who all approved the supplier who was promoted from Prospective Supplier to Spend Authorized.

    I know we can view the Rejected/In Progress list of suppliers, but can we view the details of a supplier who has been approved (Prospective to Spend Authorized).

    Regards,

    Harshith E S

    Supplier does not receive email to reset user account...15.0

    Title:
    Supplier does not receive email to reset user account password for Supplier Portal
    Summary:
    No email notifiaction to reset the password/access supplier portal is sent to the supplier
    Content:

    Tested two scenarios:

    A) Added a contact with a user account to an existing supplier record in the vendor master as a supplier administrator -> new supplier contact does not get any email to reset the password and log into the portal


    B) Registered as a supplier via the supplier portal registration link -> no email to reset the password; only received email THAT "Supplier Registration Request 1001 Was Approved"

    Normally, the supplier should receive 2 emails:

    1) Oracle Fusion Applications-Welcome E-Mail: "Congratulations! Your Oracle Fusion Applications account has been successfully created. Please follow the link below to reset your password". [LINK HERE]
    2) FYI: Supplier Contact User Account for Saskatchewan Health was Created: "You were granted access to the supplier application for Saskatchewan Health. The user name and password for your user account will be sent in a separate e-mail." This email has all the roles that were assigned to the supplier.

    Has anyone else encountered this?

    We have 900 and plus supplier sites which have gone to inactive status and now we want to make them active.

    We tried using the Supplier Site Import process and kept inactive date blank, but still, we are unable to make them active.

    Any another process we should follow?

    Any suggestions are welcome.

    Desupport for Oracle B2B Gateway coming in Update 20A, B2B...5.0
    Topic posted August 28, 2019 by Aishwarya PawarGold Medal: 3,500+ Points, tagged Supplier Communication, Supplier Profile Management, Tip 
    Title:
    Desupport for Oracle B2B Gateway coming in Update 20A, B2B Supplier Site code retained and moved to a new location!
    Summary:
    Oracle B2B Gateway will be desupported in Update 20A. B2B Supplier Site Code will continue to be available.
    Content:

    Oracle B2B Gateway will no longer be supported as a B2B Communication method starting Update 20A. We do realize that the B2B Site Code attribute will continue to remain significant for some customers, so we have retained it as a supplier profile attribute, and have moved to it to a new location.

    Starting Update 19C, the B2B Site Code field no longer appears only when the B2B Communication Method is selected as Oracle B2B Gateway - Deprecated and in the B2B Communication Method section. Instead it appears in the section above, which is the Identification section and independent of the B2B Communication Method selected.

    Screenshot below provides additional reference.

    We want to encourage you to update the  B2B Communication Method to a value other than Oracle B2B Gateway - Deprecated and migrate your setup to use Collaboration Messaging Framework for all supplier sites enabled for B2B messaging (if you select Collaboration Messaging Framework as your choice).

    Refer to the Customer Connect post: Desupport Notice for Oracle B2B Gateway in Procure-to-Pay B2B Communications in Update 20A for additional details.
