(Doc ID 2205153.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 03, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Sourcing - Version 12.2.6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

As per the Oracle E-Business Suite Documentation (https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E26401_01/doc.122/e48968/T435340T443521.htm#auctionstyleglossary):

Negotiation Style: The style determines who will be able to see the quotes/bids and when. The three styles are:

Open(RFIs and auctions only) - All suppliers can see the quotes/bids, though the responding supplier's identity is concealed.

Blind - Only the buyer can see the quotes/bids.

Sealed - The buyer can see the responses when the negotiation is unlocked. Both the buyer and suppliers can see the responses when they are unsealed.

Is there are workaround so the suppliers can see each others' responses upon unsealing?
