Cancelling Multiple Lines On A Purchase Order Creates the Same Number of Revisions (Doc ID 2062677.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 14, 2019

Applies to:

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


In Oracle iProcurement and Oracle Purchasing, Release 12.1.3, when multiple requisition lines are canceled, the purchase order (PO) revision number is incremented by the same number of requisition lines which were canceled.

It is expected that the PO document revision number will be incremented by one (1), regardless of how many requisition lines are canceled, since the PO document changes are being made at the same time.

Steps To Reproduce

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. In iProcurement, create a requisition with three lines. Submit the requisition and approve.
2. In Purchasing, the purchase is automatically created from the requisition. Status is Approved.
3. In iProcurement, search for the requisition.
a. Select the requisition in the search results, and click the Cancel Requisition button
b. On the Cancel Requisition: Select Lines page, select all three lines for cancellation, and click the Continue button.
c. On the Cancel Requisition: Review and Submit page, click the Submit button.
d. Requerying the requisition shows that all lines were canceled.
4. In Purchasing, requery the purchase order, and the PO Revision number has changed to "3" instead of "1".

Business Impact

Due to this issue, the PO buyers can be misled into thinking that many PO revisions have been made, when in reality only a single document change event has been made.
