Users Are Able To Submit Requisitions, Against Closed Cost Centre. (Doc ID 2550836.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 03, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle iProcurement - Version 12.2.7 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On Release 12.2.7 version, Other issues

When a cost center (CC) is end dated in the flex-field and then the inherit segments program run, this Disables all GL Account Combinations for this Segment.

Users are then unable to raise new requisitions against this cost center, unless they copy an existing requisition.

This pulls across the existing charge account, however generates an error upon submission as the charge account is invalid, this is expected and the user is unable to submit
the requisition against the closed CC. Therefore the user saves this requisition as INCOMPLETE.

However, over night the program "Send Notifications for Purchasing Documents" generates a Notification to the Requester stating "Requisition XXXXXXXXX requires your Approval"
if the user clicks "Approve" on this Notification, this Submits the Requisition for Approval, even though the Charge Account is invalid and the user was unable to submit
this via the front end.

Users, expect the requisition to stay in the INCOMPLETE - Status

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1) Create and Requisition and Submit.
2) Approve the Requisition
3) Close the Cost Center used on the above Requisition.
4) Copy the Requisition Submitted in Step 1.
5) Click Save
6) Click New Cart.
7) You will now have a Saved Requisition in a INCOMPLETE state.
8) Run job "PO Send Notifications for Purchasing Documents"
9) Requester will Receive a Notification
10) Open the Notification and Click: "Approve"
11) Requisition is Submitted for Approval - even though the Cost center is closed as per step 3.
12) Requisition gets "Approved" ->> With the End Dated Cost Center.

Due to this issue users can approve a Requisition against a Closed Cost Center.
