    External supplier registration request keeps being rejected18

    External supplier registration request keeps being rejected
    Summary:
    External supplier registration request keeps being rejected
    Content:

    Hi,

    since a few days, all external supplier registration requests keep beging rejected straight away. I have linked a rule that should automatically approve all registrations, but every supplier I try keeps being rejected. The message just says ' supplier rejected' and I cannot see any additional information why the supplier is rejected. In the supplier data I cannot see any details, it just says error (see attachment).

    Internal supplier registrations do work (similar rules) and also the promote to spend approval flow works properly.

    Can I see somewhere what is the cause of this issue (why is it rejected) and what could be the cause?

    Thank you

    Jasper

    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.

    In the Prospective Supplier Registration Page in the section of Roles a supplier can add certain roles.

    We want to adjust the values in the LOV.

     

    We want to keep the roles active but some of them we don't  want to have them appear in this LOV

    Where can we change the setup of the values in this LOV?

    Title:
    Ability to display audit report based on Product
    Summary:
    Display the audit report by product for (ex. supplier model).
    Content:

    We have a requirement to be able to segregate which product a user can query in the audit reports; so for example a Vendor Help Desk user can query only those attributes associated to the product "Supplier Model" vs all products currently set to audit.

    Has anyone else found a way to split up the audit reports search function? Currently the privilege "View Audit History" grants access to every Product.

    Name View Audit History
    Code FND_VIEW_AUDIT_HISTORY_PRIV
    Description Allows to view the audit history of all the business object attributes enabled for auditing.

    Thank you

    Data Access Control on Supplier SitesAnswered95.0

    Title:
    Data Access Control on Supplier Sites
    Summary:
    Understanding the configuration of data access control on supplier sites
    Content:

    There are two levels of security that allows access the supplier site information:

    1. Security privileges:
      • View Supplier Site (POZ_VIEW_SUPPLIER_SITES_PRIV): Allows view access to supplier site information.
      • Maintain Supplier Site (POZ_MAINTAIN_SUPPLIER_SITES_PRIV): Allows edit access to supplier site information.
    2. Manage Procurement Agents setup task: Agents access control is given at the "Manage Suppliers" level on this setup task. This setup provides procurement business unit based edit access to users. Supplier sites being the entity linked to procurement business units the users can only edit those sites of a supplier for whom the agent access has been given at the "Manage Suppliers" level.

    Let’s review these use cases to better understand the data access control on supplier sites:

    • Configuration for senior management users who need view only access to sites:

    To ensure the user has view access to all sites information i.e. sites belonging to all procurement business units, grant the privilege View Supplier Site to the user.

    • Configuration for supplier administrators or managers who need edit access to sites.

               There are two steps involved:

    1. Identify the procurement business units for which the user should be allowed to maintain supplier site   information. For all such procurement business units, make the user a procurement agent allowed to Manage Suppliers in the setup task Manage Procurement Agents.
    2. After making the user procurement agent for all procurement business units that user is allowed to maintain sites from, grant the privilege Maintain Supplier Site.

    Points to Consider:

    • Maintain Supplier Site privilege should only be given to users who are allowed to edit supplier site information. If they are allowed to maintain supplier sites, they MUST be made procurement agents with Manage Suppliers action for the procurement business units.
    • If the user needs to have edit access to all sites, then make the user procurement agent for all the procurement business units along with the Maintain Supplier Site privilege.
    • For view only access to sites, user must only be granted the View Supplier Site privilege.Agent access setup will not be required in this case.

    Configurable auto creation of site assignments for spend...Answered74.7
    Topic posted September 28, 2018 by Shivani RoyBronze Medal: 1,250+ Points, tagged How-To, Setup, Supplier Creation, Tip 
    Title:
    Configurable auto creation of site assignments for spend authorized suppliers
    Summary:
    Configurable auto creation of site assignments for spend authorized suppliers
    Content:

    After a supplier's spend authorization request is approved, the following changes will be applied on the supplier profile:

    1. Supplier’s business relationship changed to Spend Authorized,
    2. New sites created for the supplier depending upon the addresses and business units available in the request, and
    3. Site assignments can be automatically created for the new sites.

    Sites and site assignments are necessary for any financial transactions for the supplier. Site creation is automated so that sites are available at the earliest and with minimal manual intervention.

    Site assignments are also auto created based on the Procurement BU of the site. For more flexibility, you have the option to control the auto creation of the site assignments i.e. you can configure whether auto creation should happen for site assignments or not.

    This configuration is controlled by a checkbox option ‘Auto create site assignments for spend authorized suppliers’ present on the Configure Supplier Registration and Profile Change Request setup. By default, the checkbox is enabled that means site assignments will be created automatically. Unchecking this checkbox will prevent the auto creation of site assignments post spend authorization request approval.

    If you choose to not auto create site assignments, you will have to create them manually from the Edit Supplier page before you enter transactions for such suppliers.

    screenshot.JPG?version=1&modificationDate=1538132157000&api=v2

    Best Practice:

    Based on the business unit setup, consider the number of client BUs that will need to transact with the sites. If the majority of them will need to use the sites for transactions, enable the auto create site assignments option. Otherwise, it may be better to manually create the site assignments rather than deleting the unwanted assignments created from the auto create configuration.

    Supplier Registration email concerns if SSO is enabled65.0
    Topic posted June 4, 2019 by Vineet GangwarBlue Ribbon: 750+ Points, tagged How-To, Public Sector, Security, Setup, Supplier Communication, Supplier Creation, Supplier Registration, Supplier User Account, Tip 
    Title:
    Supplier Registration email concerns if SSO is enabled
    Summary:
    When SSO is enabled, organisations are suppose to disable the user account related email and this disables the emails for new account creations for supplier as well.
    Content:

    If SSO is enabled, user account creation emails are generally disabled and this causes a challenge to implement supplier portal. As suppliers do not get communicated about their account creations automatically as soon as the account is created, followings are the possible solutions (and their challenges) which can be suggested to clients (there can be few more but these are based on my understandings of the application):

    1: Once supplier is registered and account is crated, go to security console, change the user category and reset the password to resend the emails to suppliers.

    Challenges - In most of the public (even in private) sectors, this activity is performed by a dedicated team of supplier admins/managers and they are not supposed to have the access of "Security Console" because of organisations security policies. Hence this solution doesn't sound feasible to clients.

     

    2- Keep notifications enabled and modify the content of user account email. Detail clear cut instructions for employees and suppliers on how they can access the application but again it comes with the risk that employees (new) might miss the instruction and start using it with the credentials provided in email rather that the SSO ones, which is again big concern for organisations.

     

    These are the 2 possible solutions which I could have thought of based on my understanding of Cloud application. Please feel free to correct me or suggest any alternate solution if you have come across similar requirement.  

    Thanks
