R11 - Is It Possible To Have Item Master Organization As Purchasing Item Validation Organization Across Different Ledgers? (Doc ID 1669128.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 20, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Item Master - Version 11.0.28 to 11.5.10.2 [Release 11 to 11.5]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

In Release 11:

With a configuration having multiple operating units tied to multiple ledgers, objective is to maintain a single inventory master organization.

Despite being able to add the Item Master as Inventory Validation Organization in Payables Option for only the OU where the ledger for the OU is the same as the Item Master OU - however unable to add an item master organization to all the different OUs.

As a best practice, Oracle suggests a single item master organization. When maintaining multiple item masters to support this limitation, then this functionality appears contradictory to overall best practices.
