'Approve And Forward' Feature Not Available in Supplier Registration Approval Notification

(Doc ID 1678499.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 02, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Supplier Lifecycle Management - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

There is no option for Approve and Forward for Supplier Registration Approval notifications.

DETAILS

The Forward option is given, so it seems that Approve and Forward should also be available.

The following is summary information about the patch that provides the improved functionality:

Note 1591198.1 - 12.1.3: Procurement iSupplier Portal, Sourcing and Supplier Lifecycle Management (SLM) Rollup Patch : 17525552:R12.PRC_PF.B (Classification: Assisted SR)
Rollup Patch 17525552:R12.PRC_PF.B for iSupplier Portal, Sourcing and Supplier Lifecycle Management (SLM).
Just released the 12.1.3 Rollup (RUP) Patch 17525552:R12.PRC_PF.B for iSupplier Portal, Sourcing and Supplier Lifecycle Management (SLM).

Who should apply this patch?
Anyone that is on Release 12.1.3 and is using iSupplier Portal, Sourcing or Supplier Lifecycle Management (SLM) functionality.
(There is also a fix for 12.2)

The following areas have had major fixes:

Prospective Supplier Guided Navigation: The train-navigation is introduced for prospective supplier registration so that prospective suppliers can see all steps needed to successfully register themselves.
Supplier Registration Workflow Enhancement: With this release, provided the Approval Management Engine (AME) action required notifications for supplier approval, so that all workflow related features can be enabled. Vacation rules can be set, approvals can be forwarded and more information can be requested through the notification itself. Additionally AME parallel Approval support for Supplier Registration approvals has been added.

The above workflow enhancement statement says that ... all workflow related features can be enabled ... but the Approve and Forward is not available.

 
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Enable AME for supplier registration
2. Define AME rules for the transaction
3. Register the prospective supplier.
4. Approver gets the notification and sees the Forward button, but there is no Approve and Forward button.
