Last updated on JUNE 01, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle iProcurement - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 12.1.3 version,

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Creating internal requisition defaults a subinventory when manual source link is not clicked and subinventories have no on-hand quantity.
It works as expected with no subinventory defaulted when manual link is not clicked.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Subinventory empty when no on hand quantity available and manual link is not clicked according also to user guide

Oracle® iProcurement
Implementation and Administration Guide
Release 12
Part No. B31402-01

Requisitions Setup 4-69

Source Subinventory
In addition to Oracle iProcurement determining the source organization, the source subinventory is also a default setting. When sourcing is automatic and transparent, and the source is determined to be an internal organization, the subinventory that is reservable and that has the greatest available inventory is selected. If multiple subinventories have equal available inventory, then the first subinventory alphabetically is the default. If all subinventories have zero available inventory, then no subinventory is the default.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Manual select source link is not clicked
a) Submit Requisition
   -> Subinventory is defaulted
2. Manual select source link is clicked
a) see two internal sources
b) Submit Requisition
-> Subinventory is empty

Expect Subinventory empty also when manual source link is not clicked
