Purchase Order AME Approval Fails when Change Order is Entered in iProcurement, Because Changed PO is Routed via Non-AME Rather Than via AME Based Approval

(Doc ID 1932425.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 19, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version 12.1.3 and later
Oracle iProcurement - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

After Change Order has been approved by BUyer, if AME is used for Purchase Oder Approval, when system automatically launches the PO approval process, the following error occurs.

When submitting a change request from iProcurement 12.2.4, the corresponding purchase order (PO) change approval launches the non-AME based PO approval rather than AME based PO approval when AME is used for purchase order approvals.
Users expect the AME based PO approval should be used since that is the one used for purchase orders in the application.  Instead the non-AME based PO approval is initiated by the iProcurement change request workflow.
