In Purchasing Line Types with value Basis "Amount" Can Be validated With A Dummy Uom (Doc ID 1404237.1)

Last updated on MAY 14, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version 12.0.0 to 12.1.3 [Release 12 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When creating a Line Type (Purchasing: Setup>Purchasing>Line Types) with Value Basis "Amount", the field "Unit" is mandatory but it is possible to enter a dummy Unit Of Measure (i.e. which does not belong to the valid UOM list of values)

As a consequence :
 1- Requisition Lines entered with this line type does not have any "UOM" and then fail to be approved with the message

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Enter a dummy 'Unit' of measure on Line Type
2. The Line type can be saved and used on Requisitions and Purchase Orders.
