CLM Sourcing: Solicitation SLIN Order Is Rearranged When Creating Outcome Document (Doc ID 2658142.1)

Last updated on APRIL 10, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Contract Lifecycle Management for Public Sector - Version 12.2.4 to 12.2.9 [Release 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In Oracle Sourcing with Oracle Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM) enabled, Release 12.2.4 , the solicitation outcome (award) lines are not retaining the same order as stored on the actual solicitation.

It is expected that the outcome (award) lines will be in the same order as the solicitation lines.
Due to this issue, the business is unable to keep the proper items/line order consistent among the various purchasing document types (requisition, solicitation, award). The same item should be on the same line throughout all of the documents.

Steps To Reproduce

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Set the following profile options, which are introduced by <Patch 30373145>:R12.PON.D "In CLM Sourcing this patch provides the feature of Use Requisition Line Numbers on Autocreated Negotiation Lines":
- PON: CLM Use Requisition Line Numbers on Autocreated Negotiation Lines = Yes
- PON: CLM Use Solicitation line number in PO Award / IDV = Yes

2. In CLM iProcurement, create and approve a requisition for an info item which has multiple child lines.
Requisition PR207672A020, 0001 has Info item "Parent Line" and has three child lines:
- PR207672A020, 0001AA for item "Child Line 1"
- PR207672A020, 0001AB for item "Child Line 2"
- PR207672A020, 0001AC for item "Child Line 3"

3. In CLM Sourcing responsibility, autocreate the requisition into a solicitation document.
a. Open the Demand Workbench page:
b. Set Type = New Solicitation
c. Outcome = Award
d. Add the requisition line to the Document Builder
e. Create the solicitation
f. On the Create Solicitation: Lines" page, the lines from above are shown and having the same order/names as above. This is correct behavior and confirms that the fix from Bug 30373145 is working properly.
g. Publish the solicitation.
f. When it comes time to award the solicitation, on the "Update Award" page, in the Lines tab/region, the lines are now showing in a different order (rearranged).
- Line 0001AA - Child Line 2
- Line 0001AB - Child Line 1
- Line 0001AC - Child Line 3
Whereas it should be getting created in the following order:
- Line 0001AA - Child Line 1
- Line 0001AB - Child Line 2
- Line 0001AC - Child Line 3
