In Oracle iProcurement, the Supplier Site Value Reverts Back to the CPA Default Value During Creation of Smart Form (Doc ID 2802491.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 31, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle iProcurement - Version 12.2.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In Oracle iProcurement and Oracle Purchasing, Release 12.2.4 and later, when a contract purchase agreement (CPA) has multiple supplier sites and a smart form is created for an additional site, the new smart form defaults back to the original site even if all sites are enabled on the CPA.

It is expected that the new smart form will allow for the additional site to be defaulted when accessed in iProcurement responsibility.


NOTE: In the steps below, the supplier name and site name represent a fictitious sample (based on made-up data used in the Oracle Vision Demo environments).  Any similarity to actual persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental and not intended in any manner.

Steps To Reproduce

The issue can be reproduced in a Vision Demo environment, using the following steps:

1. Create the Contract Purchase Agreement (CPA).
a. Purchasing responsibility > Purchase Orders > Purchase Orders
b. Supplier = Consolidated Supplies and Site = DALLAS-ERS
c. The flag "Global" is enabled
d. The flag "Enable All Sites" is enabled (selected).
e. Save.
f. Tools > Enable Organizations.  There is only one site appearing in the list (it is the same site that is shown on the CPA header - DALLAS-ERS).
g. Approve the CPA.

2. Create the Smart form.
a. iProcurement Catalog Administration > Stores tab > Smart Forms subtab
b. Create the new smart form
- Default Operating Unit = Vision Operations
- Item Type = Goods or Services.I can provide description and Total Amount
c. In the Default Item Information region, set the values as:
- Commodity = Services
- Restrict categories to above commodity = Enabled
d. In the Default Supplier Information region, set the values as:
- Restrict Suppliers = No
- Contract Number = (enter the CPA number from above)
- Supplier = Consolidated Supplies
e. Supplier Site list of values (LOV) has multiple values.  Select the site SPRINGFIELD which is different than the defaulted site from the CPA (DALLAS-ERS).
f. Save the smart form definition.

3. Re-check the smart form.
- The Site value has changed back to "DALLAS-ERS" and cannot be edited.

As a workaround, the business has to create a new Contract (CPA) document for each site, and then repeat the above steps for creating a new smart form for each site.  This leads to having to maintain additional CPA documents and smart forms when it should not be needed.
