Last updated on FEBRUARY 08, 2017

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

Symptoms

Autocreate Requisition lines allows a Release to be created against an expired Blanket Purchase Agreement-BPA line.
It is not possible to create a manual Release from the Releases form against the same expired BPA line.

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Create a BPA with two (or more) lines, containing the same item. End-date the first line to a prior date (before today). Try to have difference unit prices on both lines (for clarity).                                 
2. Approve the BPA.                                                 
3. Now, remove all sourcing rules. Create a Requisition for the same item.                                                              
Make sure the line does not get sourced to anything.                
4. Go to 'Autocreate', use automatic -> pick the Requisition that was just created. Make sure to Autocreate the Requisition into a 'Blanket Release'.                                                            
5. In the pop-up window, use the 'Document' LOV to select the BPA that was created and approved in step 1                                       
6. Continue to Auotcreate the Requisition line to a Release.
7. In the resulting Release, notice that the line has a price that is equal to the first line of the BPA (which was end-dated).  
NOTE: Could also have error returned.
