Last updated on AUGUST 02, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Customers Online - Version 11.5.10.2 to 12.2.3 [Release 11.5 to 12.2]
Oracle Trading Community - Version 11.5.10.2 to 12.2.3 [Release 11.5 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When a search is performed either using the customer/party search forms available from Oracle Customers Online or Trading Community Manager responsibilities, Suppliers are co-mingled with customers/parties. 

This is causing users to inadvertently create accounts for vendors or update details on the vendor. 

This impacts Purchasing functionality.
