Match Approval Level Is Changing To 4 Way Automatically For Line Type After Purchase Order Was Saved

(Doc ID 1601058.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 04, 2016

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

When creating releases or standard Purchase Orders (PO), the 'Match Approval Level' was correctly defaulted as per the setup.
However, after the release/PO was saved, the 'Match Approval Level' was automatically changed to 4 way, although none of the setup points to 4-way ( Line Type, Supplier, Purchasing Options, Receiving options )

For example:

Purchasing Options: Match Approval Level = 3-way
Receiving Options: Receipt Routing = Inspection Required
Supplier > Receiving Alternative: Match Approval Level = 3 way
Line Types: Receipt Required = No

But after PO/Release was saved, the default 'Match Approval Level' (3-Way) will automatically be changed to 4-Way by the system.
