How To Stop Attachments with category "To Supplier" From Showing On Purchase order forms (Doc ID 2294791.1)

Last updated on JULY 15, 2020

Applies to:

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

Goal

NOTE:  In the images below and /or the attached document, user details/company name/address/email/telephone number represent a fictitious sample (based upon made up data used in the Oracle Demo Vision instance).  Any similarity to actual persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental and not intended in any manner.

Attachments on the supplier form appear on PO header, this is confusing the PO approvers as this particular attachment is irrelevant to the current PO.

The Attachment defined at Supplier Site Level/Items/Requisitions of Category = To Supplier are visible at PO.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Create Item Attachment
Resp. Inventory
Items > Organization Items
Tools > Attachments to create attachment on Item Organization Level
Category = To Supplier

2. Create Supplier Attachment
Resp. Purchasing Super User
Search Supplier > Select Supplier Site
Tools > Attachments to create attachment on Supplier Site Level
Category = To Supplier

3. Create Requisitions
Resp. Purchasing super user
Requisitions > Create and approve the requisition
Tools > Attachments to create attachment on line or header
Category = To Supplier
- Auto create to PO

4. Create PO
Create PO for Item and Supplier for which the Attachments were created.

Expectation:
The Attachment defined at Supplier Site Level of Category = To Supplier should be visible only to supplier after the PO is approved.
