A Buyer Defaults to a Non-Catalog Request Without the Suggested Buyer Setup Being Implemented

(Doc ID 2395319.1)

Last updated on MAY 11, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle iProcurement - Version 12.0.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
When one user creates Non-Catalog requisitions via iProcurement a default buyer is being assigned. (Suggested Buyer setup has not been implemented.)

This doesn't occur when other users create the exact same requisition.
For example, two requisitions created identically with only the requester/preparer differing - one will be created with a default buyer while the other isn't.


EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
The expectation is that Buyer's should not be defaulted to a requisition without the Suggested Buyer setup being implemented

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a Non-Catalog Requisition in iProcurement as User 1
2. Notice that the a Buyer is being defaulted automatically
3. Create an identical requisition as User 2
4. A Buyer is not being defaulted
