Last updated on MAY 02, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle iProcurement - Version 11.5.8 to 12.2 [Release 11.5 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Workflow sends Confirm Receipt notifications and confirm receipt reminder notifications to
requesters as expected. Before sending each notification, workflow checks several things which
includes the status of PO. If the requester does not respond to the second reminder, then the
notification will time out and a notification will be sent to the requester's supervisor.

Currently there is no check in the standard confirm receipt workflow to validate the status of PO
(ex: PO is canceled) after the second reminder is timed out and a notification is sent to the
supervisor. This causes the supervisor to receive the escalation notification
even after the PO is canceled.

2. As requester, receive a Confirm Receipt notification
3. As requester, receive a Confirm Receipt reminder notification

has already been cancelled.
