Approval Workflow Not Validating "Use Approved Supplier" Flag On Item

(Doc ID 727763.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 21, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version 12.0.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
This problem can occur on any platform.


When a Standard PO is sent for approval it validates the "Use Approved Supplier" attribute defined for the item but when the same item is used on a Blanket Purchase Agreement this doesn't happen.

The item is setup to be purchased only from Approved Suppliers with the Use Approved Vendor check box (MUST_USE_APPROVED_VENDOR_FLAG) activated at master and Organization Levels.

When a Standard Purchase Order is made for this items at the moment of clicking on the Approve Button it shows the warning message:

"Item is restricted and the supplier is not on the ASL"

The issue is when a Blanket Purchase Agreement is made. This validation doesn't take place and the document is submitted for approval.

Steps To Reproduce:

1. Setup an item to be purchased only from Approved Suppliers at master and Organization Levels.
2. Create Blanket Agreement for this item.
3. Save the document.
4. Click on the Approve button.
