After setting the descriptive flexfield (DFF) setup, it worked perfectly on Invoices workbench but through OAF page like iSupplier>iSupplier Portal Full Access>Finance tab it gives error and it is not displayed on the page.


      1. Make sure that DFF "Invoice" / Payables is configured
      2. Global Data Elements is configured and only 4 attributes are enabled.
      3. Context Field Value: "Standard"
      4. Freeze , compile
      5. Go to payables to create an invoice to check DFF
      6. Until now: there is no issue and everything is fine
      7. The problem now when you create invoice through iSupplier, this DFF should be there.
      8. Login to iSupplier as a supplier user
      9. Go to responsibility "iSupplier Portal Full Access" --> Finance tab
    10. Create invoice with PO
    11. Search on PO and select lines to be invoiced , Next
    12. Fill required info , Next
    13. Error is displayed: "The following required field does not have a value:Context"
