In R12, Context Sensitive Descriptive Flexfields (DFF) Do Not Work On The Supplier Pages (Doc ID 1595031.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Payables - Version 12.0.0 to 12.1.3 [Release 12.0 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The context-sensitive DFF segments are not displayed on the Supplier > Organization page, even when the reference field is populated with the proper value.

Steps to reproduce
1. Display an existing supplier

2. Go to the Organization page. Note the Type field is populated (example value 'Type 1')

3. According to the definition for the relevant flexfield ('Vendors' for application 'Purchasing'), the following facts apply:

Context-sensitive reference field: VENDOR_TYPE_LOOKUP_CODE
Context-sensitive reference values: Type 1 (enabled), Type 2 (not enabled), Type 3 (enabled), Type 4 (enabled), ...
The global segments are enabled.

4. So expect to see the global segments and the segments for context-sensitive DFF value 'Type 1'. But only the global segments are displayed.

Please explain / provide fix.
