Periodically Run Create Documents Workflow (CREATEPO): Requisitions For Same Supplier Are Not Grouped Into A Purchase Order (Doc ID 1063075.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 21, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version 11.5.10 to 12.1 [Release 11.5 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

With the workflow attribute 'SEND_CREATEPO_TO_BACKGROUND' set to Yes, the CREATEPO is periodically launched when running the workflow background process. When since the previous run multiple requisitions have been created for the same supplier and supplier site, the CREATEPO workflow creates these requisitions into separate purchase orders. It is expected that the requisitions are grouped into the same purchase order.

This issue can be reproduce as followed:
1. Create a requisition for an item for which a sourcing rule and approved supplier list exists.
2. Submit the requisition for approval
3. Create another requisition for the same supplier / supplier site and submit it for approval
4. As soon as the CREATEPO workflow is launched 2 purchase orders will be created
