Requisition Can Be Approved For Plan Item Without Populating Need_by_date (Doc ID 2052242.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 03, 2019

Applies to:

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


When an item is planned, the  need_by_date column is required. However,  on core requisition forms, a purchase requisition (PR) can be approved for plan item without need_by_date populated on the form.

Steps To Reproduce

1. Create an item in  master organization  V1 as not planned
    Navigate > Items > Master Items
     Tab: MPS/MRP Planning,   see Planning Method = unplanned
2. Assign item to inventory organization M1. Then make item planned on M1 organization
    Navigate > Items > Master Items
    Tab: MPS/MRP Planning,   see Planning Method= MRP/MPP Planned
3. Create a PR from requisition form, choosing the plan item first.
    Navigate > Requisitions > Requisition
    a. Enter line 1 information, see Need-By is not required (white background).
    b.  At the page bottom section of form, change the ship to org (Field 'Location') from V1 to M1. 
    c.  At this point, the need_by_date field is a mandatory field and it should be changed to yellow (mandatory).
         but the behavior at the form is the need_by_date field will not change from white (optional) to yellow (mandatory).
         It is  still an optional field, so user can approve the PR without  populating the need_by_date.
