(Doc ID 2146997.1)

Last updated on JUNE 21, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Retail Store Inventory Management - Version 14.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The issue described in this document is known to Oracle, and a fix already scheduled for future release.
This article will be updated as official patch information becomes available.

When the permission "Access Supplier Lookup" is not granted to a role, it is observed that supplier lookup option is still available from the item lookup screen.

Steps to Recreate:

  1. Using SIM Security, create a Role, and remove the permission 'Access Supplier Lookup' while creating the Role.
  2. Create a user with this Role.
  3. Log in as this user.  Observe that Supplier Lookup button is not present in the Lookups functionality.
  4. However, in other functionalities (Item Search in the context of Shipping and Receiving or Inventory Management, wherein we have 'search by Supplier' functionality) - lists of suppliers are available upon searching and the details of the supplier are also shown.
