"Item is restricted and the supplier status assigned to this supplier does not allow" When Submitting Purchase Order for Approval (Doc ID 1087621.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 02, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Attempting to submit the purchase order for approval is not allowed due to an error message regarding the Approved Supplier List.

Error: Line #6 Shipment #1 Item is restricted and the supplier status assigned to this supplier does not allow PO approval.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Purchasing Super User > Purchase Orders
  2. Query the Purchase Order requiring Re-Approval
  3. Promised date was changed on Line 7 which engages the need for approval again.
  4. After the "approve" button is pressed, the error on line 6 appears

The 'use approved supplier' flag (on the purchasing tab of the item setup) is NOT turned on for any of the items on this PO
This just started happening after applying patches, such as a Purchasing Rollup patch.
This used to work properly before applying the patch.


Applied patches which introduced the new logic from <Bug 5553138>.
