In Oracle Sourcing, RFQs in Submitted Status and Set to Open On Future Date Are Unable To Be Edited (Doc ID 2908401.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 10, 2022

Applies to:

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


In Oracle Sourcing, Release 12.2.4 and later, RFQs that are in status "Submitted" and are set to open on a future date are unable to be edited.
The expectation is that the buyer should be able to modify the RFQ fields such as Open Date or Close Date prior to the RFQ being published and available to Suppliers.

Due to this issue, the buyer or sourcing administrator cannot update the simple RFQ details such as Open Date in case the RFQ needs to be opened earlier or later than the current Open Date.

Steps To Reproduce

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Log in to Oracle Applications.
2. Navigate to Sourcing Super User responsibility > Sourcing > Sourcing Home Page.
3. On the negotiations home page, in the Create region, click the RFQ link to create a new RFQ.
4. On the Create RFQ: Header" page, enter the title, and remove all collaboration team members except for the logged-in user. No approvers on the RFQ. Click the Save as Draft button when done.
5. Click the Lines tab and add one line to the RFQ.
6. Click the Controls tab and set:
- Preview Date = (leave it blank)
- Open Date = (enter a future date)
- Close Date = (enter a future date)
7. Click the Suppliers tab and add supplier(s) as needed.
8. Review and then Publish.
9. Now, on the RFQ details page, it shows:
- Status = Submitted
- Time Left = Opens in 92 days
- Open Date = (future date)
- Close Date = (future date)
- Approval Status = Requires No Approval
10. Check the Actions LOV --> there is no option and no method available to update the Open Date or other fields in the RFQ, even though the RFQ is not actually published yet.

As a workaround, the RFQ must be canceled and a new RFQ created with new Open Date and Close Date.  This is not feasible and is very time consuming even when using the Copy RFQ feature.
