When Copying A Requisition To Cart, The Suggested Buyer Name Is Cleared (Null) (Doc ID 2089042.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 19, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle iProcurement - Version 12.2.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR  
---------------
When Copying A Requisition to Cart, the Suggested Buyer Name Is Cleared (Null)  

When copying a previously approved requisition to cart, the "Suggested Buyer" field is cleared, forcing users to re-enter (something we require for our business process).  We recently completed an upgrade from 12.0.6 to 12.2.4.  This behavior was not present in 12.0.6.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
The Suggested Buyer should not be cleared.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. iProcurement > Requisitions
2. On the requisition tab, select a requisition and click the "Copy to Cart" button
3. "Suggested Buyer" field is cleared
4. User has to assign the buyer again.
This is a tedious process since they do not know what is the buyer that should go to the requisition.
