Parent Supplier Number Not Visible On Supplier XML Payload

(Doc ID 2117383.1)

Last updated on APRIL 03, 2016

Applies to:

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


In Oracle Supplier Management, Release 12.1.3, when publishing a supplier, the XML payload contains the parent supplier ID field (which is an internal ID number), but does not provide a field or value for the parent supplier number (which is the value seen by users on the supplier pages).  Due to this issue, administrators are unable to see the parent supplier number in the XML file.

It is expected that the XML file contains both the Parent Supplier ID field and the Parent Supplier Number field.

Steps To Reproduce

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Log in to Oracle Applications, using a Supplier Management Administrator responsibility.
2. Create the supplier and designate a parent supplier during the creation process.
3. Supplier Management Administrator > Supplier Home > Enter the Supplier Number. The supplier information (supplier name, supplier number, parent supplier name, parent supplier number) is all displayed correctly.
4. Click the Publish button. This generates an XML document.

The XML file shows the Supplier ID (VENDOR_ID = 346017) and Supplier Number (SEGMENT1 = 1045)
For the Parent supplier, it shows the Parent Supplier ID (PARENT_VENDOR_ID = 1061941). However, it does not contain the Parent Supplier Number field, which has a value of 200002963.
