    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.

    Child fields in request parameter for Get All Suppliers REST...Answered3
    Topic posted November 8, 2019 by David Wright, tagged Business Intelligence, Fusion, How-To 
    Child fields in request parameter for Get All Suppliers REST API
    What's the notation for child fields for expanded items in this API

    The documentation says "If an indirect child resource is provided (Example: Employees.Managers), the missing children will be processed implicitly. "

    So, if my parameters say 'fields' : 'Alias,AlternateName,Supplier,SupplierId,SupplierNumber,sites.PaymentTerms' then shouldn't sites.PaymentTerms be valid for Suppliers?  However, when I try to use any variation of this (with . or ; or :) it fails with 'URL request parameter fields with value Alias,AlternateName,Supplier,SupplierId,SupplierNumber,sites.PaymentTerms is not valid.'

    Is my notation incorrect, or can I not access child items in such a manner for Supplier?

    RightFax Fax Integration and Oracle Fusion Cloud
    Looking to see what other customers are using for Fax Capabilities with Oracle Cloud

    Hello Everyone,

    I was doing some research to determine what Oracle supports in terms of Faxing Software.  Our organization is utilizing RightFax and we trying to migrate our Enterprise over to using strictly RightFax.  I noticed that Oracle doesn't support Rightfax and only uses CUPS for Printing and Faxing capabilities.  I wanted to reach out to the community to see if anyone was using software other than CUPS or even RightFax and what the experience has been.  For us our Supply Chain team has a requirement to be able to Fax some suppliers that still require Fax. 

    Thank you,

    John Binder

    Hopefully I chose the right place to put this question. New to the community and still learning.

    REST Suppliers Status failure3
    Topic posted November 4, 2019 by David Wright, tagged Fusion, How-To, Supplier Creation 
    REST Suppliers Status failure
    Trying to list a Status value on a Supplier POST REST action causes failure

    Creating a supplier via REST does not allow Status value to be set. If Status is listed in payload, regardless of value, request fails with status code 400

    Example from documentation with added Status line (
    "Supplier" : "Tall Manufacturing",
    "TaxOrganizationType" : "Corporation",
    "SupplierType" : "Services",
    "BusinessRelationship" : "Prospective",
    "DUNSNumber" : "221134568",
    "OneTimeSupplierFlag" : false,
    "TaxpayerCountry" : "United States",
    "TaxpayerId" : "98-03376373",
    "Status" : "ACTIVE" # IF THIS LINE IS PRESENT, REST POST FAILS with error: "Attribute Status in view object SupplierVO cannot be set."

    How to Configure Bank Accounts Dialog for Supplier...45.0
    Topic posted October 30, 2019 by Hong GaoGold Medal: 3,500+ Points, tagged Customization, How-To 
    How to Configure Bank Accounts Dialog for Supplier Registration Flows
    Steps to configure bank accounts dialog for supplier registration pages

    Use Case:

    Capturing supplier bank account information is important for on-boarding suppliers through supplier registration flows.  By default, Country and Account Number are required fields.  You would like to make additional attributes required during supplier registration. For example, your company policy requires that supplier bank accounts should always include account name information.


    Follow these steps to use page composer and make Account Name a required field for supplier registration flows.

    1. Navigate to supplier registration page/flow and Bank Accounts train stop.
    2. Create and enter a sandbox.
    3. Click Edit Supplier Registration Pages from the global menu


    4. Switch from the default Design View to Source View


    5. Click on Create button and click Edit on Confirm Shared Component Edit dialog


    6. In the components hierarchy panel (on the right in the screenshot above), locate the first popup component under panelGroupLayout: default.  This is the component for the Create Bank Account dialog.  The second popup component right below is for the Edit Bank Account dialog.  Select the first popup component and right click on Edit.


    7. On the Component Properties: popup dialog, change the Content Delivery to immediate. Click OK.



    8. You can now edit properties of any of these UI components belonging to the create bank account popup. Since the use case is to make the  Account Name required, locate inputText: Account Name in the list of the UI components and click to edit the property of the component.


    9. Make the field Required and click OK.

    10. Since the configuration on create bank account popup does not reflect on the edit bank account popup, you need to perform same steps for the edit bank account dialog as well. Locate edit popup using details in step 6 above and perform steps 7 to 9 for it. 

    11. Bank Account Name is then required for both Create and Edit Bank Account dialogs.




    12. Publish the sand box changes.

    Points to Consider:

    • After the configuration, Account Name is now required for all supplier registration flows, including both internal and external supplier registrations as the same dialog is shared between both flows.
    • You don't need to repeat the same steps for create and edit flows if the same popup is being used for both places.
    • You can follow these steps if you are not able to configure other dialogs in design view.

    REST POST /fscmRestApi/resources/latest/suppliers response...Answered4
    Topic posted October 11, 2019 by Carlos UrtubiaRed Ribbon: 250+ Points, tagged How-To, Payables, Security, Supplier Communication 
    REST POST /fscmRestApi/resources/latest/suppliers response is 403 Forbidden
    Trying to create suppliers on 19C

    I am using 19C and trying to do the same as is on the documentation :

    POST /fscmRestApi/resources/latest/suppliers
      "Supplier" : "Tall Manufacturing",
      "TaxOrganizationType" : "Corporation",
      "SupplierType" : "Services",
      "BusinessRelationship" : "Prospective",
      "DUNSNumber" : "221134568",
      "OneTimeSupplierFlag" : false,
      "TaxpayerCountry" : "United States",
      "TaxpayerId" : "98-03376373"

    I can do the GET, could be that I am missing any role?

    I added all the supplier roles and I am able to create a supplier on the app.


    Thank you,
