Purchase Requisition Can Be Submitted For Approval Without Supplier When Supplier and Site Have Been Personalized To Be Required Fields On Catalog (Inventory Item) Requests
Last updated on AUGUST 01, 2017
Applies to:Oracle iProcurement - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
In Oracle iProcurement, Release 12.1.3, when creating a requisition (catalog request) for an inventory item not tied to a source document, the Supplier information is not entered by the user and the requisition can be submitted for approval.
This is usually acceptable; however, in this case, the business has personalized the Edit Lines page to make the Supplier field mandatory (required), and it is expected that the requisition cannot be submitted without the supplier information. Due to this issue, users can create catalog requests without entering supplier information, which the business is now requiring.
Steps To Reproduce
Steps for Personalization:
a. Navigate to the Requisition Information: Update Selected Line page.
b. Click the Personalize page link. The Personalize Page: Oracle iProcurement: Checkout page appears.
c. Choose the appropriate context.
d. Set the Required property to "true" at the Responsibility level for the following:
- Message Text Input: Supplier
- Message Text Input: Site
- Message Lov Input: Supplier
- Message Lov Input: Supplier Site
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Log in to Oracle Applications, using an iProcurement responsibility.
2. Add a catalog item (inventory item) to cart.
3. View Cart and Checkout.
5. On the Checkout: Requisition Information page, complete the checkout process and submit for approval, without clicking the Edit Lines button to add the required supplier.
6. The requisition is created successfully, but without the supplier information.
If the user clicks the Edit Lines button and then edits the line, on the Requisition Information: Update Selected Line page the user is then required to enter the supplier and site value. This page, however, is bypassed if the user simply clicks the Submit button on the Checkout: Requisition Information (Step 1 of 3) page.
