Symptoms

In Oracle iProcurement, Release 12.1.3, an error message occurs when attempting to view requisition details after using the "My Group's Requisitions" view.

The issue was introduced to the environment after applying <Patch 14254641> "PROCUREMENT FAMILY R12.1.3 SEPTEMBER UPDATE 2012".
The issue is also known to occur after applying Patch 14499294:R12.ICX.B "Timecard entries not being relevant to selected req line".
Both of these patches contain ReqDetailsCO.java 120.20.12010000.11.

Due to this issue, users cannot view detailed information of requisitions created by other users in the same group.
