Symptoms

Requisitions getting resourced multiple times to a Purchase Order because the Source Status is not getting updated from "Available" to "Sourcing Complete."


Replication Steps:

Part A

  1. Create Requisition and Save and Submit it.
  2. Approval requisition by login as SVP1 and WENDYCHO by navigating to Worklist. You can also SVP1 for both the stages as SVP1 has assigned roles to both the stages Hardware and Software buyer.
  3. Login back as VP1 - Navigate to Buyer Center > Quick Source and source the requisition.
  4. Check the PO Created.
  5. Navigate to Manage Requisition > Edit Requisition and click on Go to Edit the Requisition.
  6. Change the Qty of line 1 from 1 to 5 and Save and Submit.
  7. Here Change Request is triggered. Leave it as it is. Don’t approve any of these Change Requests.
  8. Line 1 Quantity is edited from 1 to 5, status of requisition is changed to ‘Pending’ and Change Request is triggered for approval, approval process is initialized and not completed.
  9. Check the status of Manage Requisition.
  10. Don’t approve this change request, leave it as it is.
  11. Now again go back to Purchasing > Add/Update PO and Cancel the PO.

  13. Now start the Change Request Approval process again. Approve the Change Request approval by stage 1 approve and then stage 2 approver. Navigate to worklist of SVP1  i.e. first stage approver similarly for another stage approver.
  14. Approve at 2nd stage. You can use either SVP1 and WendyCho or only SVP1. SVP1 has both the roles. Hence, SVP1 can also do both stages approver. I have used SVP1.
  15. Approval at 2nd stage and click OK.
  16. Now, Login as VP1 and check the Manage Requisition status.
  17. See the Change Request status, it is Ready for Process. Yet to be approved. Don’t approve it. Leave it as it is.
