Purchase Order 'Created By' Field Shows Incorrect Value

(Doc ID 1905615.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 21, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version 12.1.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The Purchase Order (PO) 'Created By' field shows an incorrect value.  The PO was created automatically using the PO Creation workflow (CREATEPO) after the Requisition was approved.

Rather when a requisitions is approved, POs are auto created without any user intervention.  Hence, the preparer of the requisition should be entered in the 'Created By' field of the Purchase Order.

PO 'Created By' should reflect the requisition preparer.

Replication Steps:
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a new requisition and send it for approval.
2. Once the approver approves the requisition, PO is created automatically using CREATEPO workflow
3. PO 'Created By' field reflects the last approver of the requisition NOT the preparer of requisition.
