Why are iProcurement Punchout Requisitions not automatically created into Purchase Orders upon approval of the requisition?


Modify the PO Create Documents workflow per Oracle documentation
1. 'Is Automatic created allowed - Y (default)
2. 'Should contract be used to autocreate' is set to Y
3. Requisition workflow - send autocreation to background - N
4. Login to iProcurement
5. Punchout to Supplier (via exchange) select items
6. Add to cart and return to iProcurement
7. Create Requisition
8. Approve requisition.
9. Navigate to Purchase Order window , query to find whether the PO got created. The PO is not created. It can still be queried from the Autocreate window.

The punchout Requisition approval workflow shows status "COMPLETE". The requisition can be queried from the autocreate window but the Purchase Order did not get created automatically by the workflow.
