Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Requirement is that when a BPA is created from the result of an RFQ and submitted for approval,
the approval rule needs to check if an agreement for the same Supplier, Supplier Site, and Currency
has already been created.

The goal is to prevent a duplicate BPA created for the same combination in the system; rather update the existing BPA.

The problem with relevant attributes documented in PDF attached to Doc ID 2264952.1 (Document Currency,
Document Creation Method, Supplier and Supplier Site) is that they will only look at that specific BPA.
