CP Responsibility Assignment On The Source Side In Decentralized VCP Environment Creating Confusion. (Doc ID 2483467.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 16, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Collaborative Planning - Version 12.2.6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On : 12.2.6 version, Miscellaneous in Production

Users have a decentralized VCP installation with 2 source EBS instances. Both EBS source instances are on 12.2.6 and they have their own iSupplier (iSP) implementations live in Production. That means source EBS iSP implementations and Collaborative Planning (CP) are on three (3) separate Databases. iSP is used by both internal and supplier users to view and act on Purchase order related information whereas CP will be used for publishing Planned orders from ASCP as net Order forecast. Their Internal users are already setup in Source EBS and in VCP instance (for ASCP, Demantra and IO). For CP User Company association, we are assigning ‘Supply Chain Collaboration Planner’ to those users on the source side getting those collected with User Company association. Ref: Setup Of Users In Collaborative Planning (Doc ID 1450350.1). Some of these users also have iSupplier responsibility assigned to them for iSupplier usage.

Supplier User creation and User Company association for CP they are following Note 1531956.1 (How To Create iSupplier Contact Application User for Collaborative Planning in R12) and getting those users collected into CP/ VCP. As both internal and supplier group of users are getting 'Supply Chain Collaboration Planner' responsibility assigned to their user on the source EBS side when they login into source instance for accessing iSP or any other source side module (internal users) they can also see 'Supply Chain Collaboration Planner' responsibility on the source side as well. If they click on the responsibility it will take them to CP pages on the source side (without any data from ASCP). This is already creating confusion for users. However since they have a decentralized VCP installation the actual CP module (that users should be accessing) will be available on the VCP side only. Having 'Supply Chain Collaboration Planner' responsibility visible and accessible for both VCP and source will be confusing for users.
