Goal

Users want to hold creation of new Requisition, new PO for a particular supplier.

However, all the already created documents (Requisition, PO, Receipt, Invoices ) should be able to continue their life normally (able to modify PO, perform a Receipt, generate an Invoice and pay it...etc).
The requirement is to hold only a new creation of Requisition and PO.

To this end, on supplier site users uncheck site purpose "Purchasing",  it is observed they cannot create a new Requisition
However user then cannot modify an existing PO  and error message is displayed : "Invalid attribute value of supplier site".

Same behavior when users enter an end date on assignment site.

1. How to hold all new purchasing documents without any impact on existing documents?

2. On supplier Site > "Purchasing" Tab > Controls : there is a flag "Hold all new purchasing documents" but when checked nothing happens and users can create Requisition/PO without any hold.
What is the use of this flag ?
