Warning Message For Purchase Order Created In Incomplete Status (Doc ID 2070236.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 20, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Fusion Purchasing Cloud Service - Version 11.1.11.1.0 and later
Oracle Fusion Purchasing - Version 11.1.11.1.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Purchase Order (PO) was created in Incomplete status but application does not provide a reason.

In the Purchasing overview window the PO shows up in the Drafts tab. The reason why is unclear. User has to open the PO, click Edit and Submit to
discover that the open agreement amount is less than the PO amount.

Due to this issue, users can incorrectly submit PO against agreement

It is not clear why PO ends up in draft status unless you edit the PO and click submit. Only after resolving the issue the PO hits approval. Hence PO
being stuck in draft status is not related to approval rules.
It would be a great improvement if the overview screen shows the reason why PO is stuck in incomplete status.


It is expected that Application would present warning or error to user without having to open and edit the document.


Steps To Reproduce
1. Create and Submit a PO against an Agreement.
2. In the Purchasing overview window the PO shows up in the Drafts tab.
3. Open the PO.
4. Click Edit and Submit to discover that the open agreement amount is less than the PO amount.
